You can disable an account to prevent Empathy from logging in to it without removing the account entirely. You may wish to disable and re-enable an account if you only want to be logged in to the account at certain times, but you still want to use Empathy for other accounts.
From the Contact List window, choose Edit ▸ Accounts, or press F4.
Select the account you wish to disable from the accounts list on the left side of the window.
On the right side of the window, switch it off.
To re-enable the account, switch it on.
