Manually uninstall RSMail!

If for some reason the automatic uninstallation fails, follow these steps to manually remove RSMail! from your Joomla!:
  1. Locate your Joomla!/components/ folder. Delete the folder named com_rsmail.
  2. Locate your Joomla!/administrator/components/ folder. Delete the folder named com_rsmail.
  3. Connect to your MySQL database and remove all of the _rsmail tables. For example, if your Joomla! database prefix is "jos", remove all tables that start with jos_rsmail.
  4. For instance, use this SQL script:
     
      DROP TABLE `jos_rsmail_ar_details`, `jos_rsmail_ar_messages`, `jos_rsmail_ar_message_details`, `jos_rsmail_autoresponders`,
      `jos_rsmail_bounce_emails`, `jos_rsmail_config`, `jos_rsmail_cron_logs`, `jos_rsmail_cron_logs_emails`, `jos_rsmail_emails`,
      `jos_rsmail_errors`, `jos_rsmail_files`, `jos_rsmail_lists`, `jos_rsmail_list_fields`, `jos_rsmail_log`,
      `jos_rsmail_messages`, `jos_rsmail_reports`, `jos_rsmail_sessions`, `jos_rsmail_session_details`,
      `jos_rsmail_session_filters`, `jos_rsmail_subscribers`, `jos_rsmail_subscribers_clicks`, `jos_rsmail_subscribers_opens`,
      `jos_rsmail_subscriber_details`, `jos_rsmail_templates`
     
  5. For Joomla! 3.x: Browse the _extensions, _assets and _menus tables and erase all com_rsmail entries. For instance, use this SQL queries:
  6.  
      DELETE FROM `jos_extensions` WHERE `element`='com_rsmail'
      DELETE FROM `jos_menus` WHERE `link` LIKE '%com_rsmail%'
      DELETE FROM `jos_assets` WHERE `name` LIKE '%com_rsmail%'
