  1. Hi,

    It does not give me the option to remove on my Samsung Galaxy Note 3, I choose the account and it only says sync no menu on the top right?

    Anyone else have the same issue??


  2. Thank you but This does not work for me. My account is set up as a corperate account and I get no option to remove account as above. It only gives me the option to Auto Sync.

    I no longer work for the company it was set up for and I can not remove all the email. .

    Very frustrating!

  3. My exchange account is not listed under settings / accounts /google — it only lists gmail accounts.
    So this doesn’t work for me, where my exchange server isn’t associated with a gmail account.

    1. Hi, I removed exchange email account using this, please recheck once again, let me know if you are unable to. We will find easier way.
