    Hi,
    While on vacation recently I installed Skype on my husband's Lumia 640. In the process I must have inadvertently signed into my Outlook account...who knows. Anyway, my email is now on his phone and we can't delete it since it's the first one to be associated/linked/whatever with my husband's telephone ( he doesn't want any email on this phone). Now he's getting notifications, obviously, and when he deletes them, they are sent to the trash, obviously. This is a problem for both of us.

    Short of resetting the phone, is there a way to prevent the Lumia 640 from accessing my email? Can we turn off the email without resetting the phone?

    Help!! Please.

    Tried Settings/Accounts? Won't it let you remove it?

    If your Husband's phone is signed into your Microsoft Account he will see all your Outlook email, Text, MMS, and Skype. It will also complicate/confuse Backup and Restore for his phone and yours.

    Reset the phone and have him sign in under his Microsoft Account. Settings > about > reset your phone. As a Microsoft Account holder he would have his own Skype, of course.

    During setup he can safely restore from his last backup. You should then run a new Backup on your phone once they are separated.
