Step 2: Tap on the “Settings” app to open it. Once the settings are displayed, scroll down until you find the option labeled “Mail”. Tap on it to proceed.

Step 3: In the “Mail” section, you will see a list of all email accounts that are currently configured on your iPhone. Find the account that you want to sign out from and tap on it.

Step 5: A pop-up window will appear asking if you want to delete the account from Mail and remove all data from this iPhone. Please note that selecting this option will permanently remove all emails associated with this account from your device. If you’re certain about signing out of this account, tap on “Delete from My iPhone”.
