can't delete old account

email was behaving erratically with a lag of min to hrs to get new email, while it was on the iPhone and in Yahoo immediately, so I decided to create a new account and delete the old one.

the new account works, but on trying to remove the old acct. it’s still running 40min later. It says it may take a while but how long is normal? if I kill the process, will that corrupt anything?


After 50min I just killed the “delete account” process and restarted eMC and everything seems fine. no lost data either and my new account works great.  ???
