 Delete Organization

In case you have set up an organization account, and want to change your account to a personal account, or want to join another organization's account, you have to delete the current organization in which you have Super Admin role, before joining the other organization.

The three major steps before deleting an organization are

  • Removing users
  • Deleting domains
  • Canceling any paid subscriptions you are part of. Refer here for instructions to cancel Zoho Mail Subscriptions. 

Note:

Ensure that you have backup of all the data before you begin deleting the organization as the data can't be recovered once the organization has been deleted.

  1. Login to Zoho Mail Control Panel as an Administrator.
