So I guess you should better have removed the FM account inside your mail app before deleting it. Not sure how to solve this. At least you can try installing the app again, then add your FM account and remove it again.

Yes, I agree. It's not the app (uninstalled) or some remnant that was left behind but cloud-to-cloud communication that's doing the logins. They will fail so the security issue is solved. I'm pretty sure of the app causing the issue; I'd just like to find a way to prove it. And I'd prefer not to install it again.
