Mail account provisioning - how to delete mail account from user


I’m running Nextcloud 18.0.4 on raspbian buster with Apache2. All software is up-to-date and working fine.

Logging-in as ‘admin’, then in Settings > Groupware, I have enabled ‘account provisioning’ for all users. This works perfectly for all users, and correctly configures their email accounts by default.

However, when I select the Mail app when logged in as user ‘admin’, there is (not surprisingly) a mail account for As there is actually no email account on for a user called ‘admin’, I would like to either change the email account that user ‘admin’ uses in the Mail app, or just remove the incorrect account.

Does any one have any advice on this?

Thanks very much.


i’m having the same problem. Did you find a solution?


well… one idea would be: Add an account to your NC referring to the desired eailaddress and make this new account an admin

another idea would be: Add an admin-account to your Mailserver and forward it to your emailaccount (or set an alias)
