In Outlook.com I want to un-connect one email account from another.


I had connected “B” to “A” successfully. When I’m on the Outlook.com web interface, “B” sits inside of “A”. It sits the same way on my home PC when I’m in Microsoft Office Outlook 2013.


Later I realized I wanted it to be a separate account on the web interface (I know I’d have to log into it separately) and also sit by itself as a separate account in my home PC’s Outlook 2013 (I know I’d have to add it as a new email account).


Now, when I log into “A” on the web, the gear/options path does not show me a “connected accounts” option. I also can’t find anything in the full options list regarding connected accounts. The web interface for the “A” account has a blue bar at the top and is called “Outlook.com.”


When I log into the “B” account the interface has a black bar at the top and is called Outlook Mail. There, in the gear/options path, I do see “connected accounts” but my two connected accounts don’t appear.


I don’t understand why the interfaces are different for both accounts. They are both “***@outlook.com” addresses. Also not sure if that has anything to do with it. In any case I’m not sure where to go in order to un-connect or separate the two accounts. Can you help?
