    Ok i just chatted with a guy from Apple Support Online. They said it's not possible to delete an iCloud account.

    Are they serious?

    Just go this section in System Prefs and sign out. Done.

    Did that but the thing is that all my stuff remain in my account in the cloud (emails, calendars, addressees).

    Can't you just go to iCloud.com and delete the data from there.

    Or export what you want to save from iCal and Address Book and Mail.. then delete from there (with iCloud still on). Then turn off iCloud and import everything back in.

    I thought of it but since my emails don't deactivate people could still be sending emails there. I know, it's weird but...

    Anyway, i see lot's of people having the same issue and most of them resolve this by either ditching the new account and continue with the old or, use the old (that has many purchases) and use the new iCloud account for syncing with mail, ical and contacts.

    I guess you could just have the old account forwarded where you like so you catch any email sent there.

    I agree with you, one would think there would be a way to just kill the whole account.
