Apple OS X Contacts Address Book Inactive Accounts Delete

Sometimes the list of accounts in the Apple Contacts program will be different than the Internet Accounts listing in System Preferences. This is particularly a problem with accounts marked as Inactive.

To fix this problem, follow these instructions.

  1. Close System Preferences if it is open.
  2. Press the Option key and click the Go menu in finder and select Library to view your user Library.
  3. In the Preferences folder, find the file named com.apple.internetaccounts.plist and move it to the desktop.
  4. Start System Preferences and open Internet Accounts. You should see the previously missing Inactive account from Contacts appear in the list.
