    You have switched everyone on to a not so user friendly hot mail service. It is very important to us all to leave things as they are . We all need to work fast and efficient , nothing about this is . It may convince you but not the users, Clanged it back please.

    Had the same problem, no sign out options. I had to remove the account. It worked, but really, who wants to have to do that everytime.

    i am having so much trouble signing out of yahoo. seems like its taking forever to find it. WHY is it too difficult searching where to click while my friends find it so easy to sign out of their Google account? They could just Sign out of Google in just a snap. Please could you guys make it easier on yahoo too????

    I wish MS would quit deciding what is convenient for us. To have my mail account available to anyone that sits down to me PC without the ability for me to sign out is totally unacceptable. Thanks for at least others to commiserate with.

    Went to settings (windows 8) and clicked on accounts. All that came up is a place to ADD more emails. As has been mentioned here, there is no Sign Out, which is totally UNacceptable.
    There is no option to “remove” accounts either.
    This is some sneaky sh*t.
    What exactly is their purpose in making Signing Out so impossible ?
    I smell a rat.
    Like they want 24/7 access to my email ?

    I shouldn’t have commented here….I’m still too P*ssed Off.

    Maybe I’ll just take my new laptop back to Best Buy and Order them to sign my email out. I don’t care if I look stupid doing that. I will Never be opening my email in windows 8 again.
    I still have my older laptop with windows 6 (?).

    No sign out option! But I went to accounts, and then remove account. That worked.

  7. Matt Perry says

    The ‘Signout’ option has gone away, both with the default mail program in Win8 and the Yahoo App.

    This did not work as no “sign out” option appeared in the settings. I had to uninstall the app.
