What happens to my email when I remove a connected account?

Any email messages that were imported to will still be there after you disconnect the email account.

Tip: Before you remove a connected account from, we recommend that you sign in to the account via the original email provider and make sure your email messages are there. If they are there, after you remove your account you can delete all the account's email messages from and you'll still have a copy of them at your email provider. If they aren't there, after you remove the connected account, you might want to archive your email messages in a folder in instead of deleting them.

After you remove the account from, you can no longer send email from that account in
