Help! I logged into my Microsoft account (which I never use) to send a message to a company after clicking their 'contact us' tab.

Now if 'mail' is selected from the Windows 8 homescreen it automatically opens my Yahoo mail. My wife and I both use the same account on the computer so if she clicks 'mail' she can now see my emails even if I am not signed in to yahoo mail. You can see how this might have an impact on my Retrobike purchase :oops:

How can I sign out of my account or unlink my Yahoo mail account from my Microsoft account

Open mail program, click accounts tab in top left hand corner, click settings, sort it out!

Should work, hopefully not too late!

Pheww, thanks :D

I'm not really up to speed with Windows8 and never sign in to my Microsoft account but some websites don't show their email address but instead has a 'contact us' tab which automatically opens windows mail. That's how I slipped up! Won't be doing that again :lol:
