Delete MSN messenger account?

  ptrafc 12:19 30 May 2004

Is it possible to delete a messenger account that is not in use anymore? It is one I set up a while back, and was not set up through MSN. I have started to use MSN now and have created a new account with a new profile, and I want to erase the old one.
Thanx for any help.

in response to this, how do I close a MSn account?

I get this click here

.NET Passport is unable to close your account because it is managed by MSN.

Do you want to close the account or just get rid of the sign in name. If you want to get rid of it (in xp)Click Start/Run and put in - control userpasswords2. You should then be able to delete the sign in name.

If your account is with MSN/hotmail the passport will close if you close that email address. If you have set up a passport for another address (eg [email protected]) then close it via the link i put thats how i closed my old btinternet one..
