I need to reconnect/remove my Outlook account to/from API Nation, how do I go about this?
There are some cases where API Nation can have a corrupted connection to Outlook, this can often occur via a change of credentials on within Outlook.
There are other cases where you may need to simply remove a Outlook connection from API Nation.
In these cases you will need to reconnect/remove your application to API Nation, this is a tutorial on how to do so.
NOTE: It is possible a member of the API Nation team already removed the bad/unwanted connection, if this is the case, read along this document up to step 5 to ensure you're on the right page for 'Adding A New Connection'
