Default Thunderbird 17.0 Removing an account

I want to remove an obsolete email account on Thunderbird 17.0.

Looking on the help, I find:

Menu location: Tools | Account Settings | Account Actions

Looking on the Thunderbird Support, I find a question about deleting an account answered:

Account Settings > choose an account > Account Actions > Remove Account

Two useless answers, since there is no "Account Actions" visible to me. I will provide a screen capture if it helps.

Happy New Year to everyone.

Not sure if this helps at all because I'm using Tbird 3.1.15 but I see an "Account Actions" box (dropdown for options) at the very bottom of the Account Settings window. Could it be that it's somehow not being displayed because maybe your font settings are too large?

Screen shot please?

When I click Tools/AccountSettings I get a dialogue box which shows details of the special local folders account.

On the left hand side of the page is a list of all accounts.

Below that is a button labelled Account Actions. If you click on that it will offer 5 options, the last of which is Delete Account. If you have the local folders account highlighted this will be greyed out. Select an email account and the delete option will be live.

Ah, the list of all accounts has a white background, and a scroll bar on the right. The Account Actions button has a grey background, and just as you say, when I select a particular account, it allows 5 options, and the desired Delete Account is the last one. The difference in backgrounds caused me to overlook the button. Thanks, Barrie!
