Hi there I am struggling to delete a record from a DB table, it shold be easy but I just am not sure how to do it...

Here is my code but the delete procedure asks for parameters and I am not sure what they are for:

function RemoveAccountfromAllAccountsTable(SelectedAccount : string):boolean;
//Purpose: to remove the Accoount from the AllEmailAccounts table
var
  AccountRemoved : boolean;
begin
  AccountRemoved := false;
  with datasimplemail do
  begin
      tblAllEmailAccounts.First;
      while not tblAllEmailAccounts.Eof do
      begin
        if (tblAllEmailAccountsAccountName.value = SelectedAccount) then //you have found the selected account
        begin
          tblAllEmailAccounts.Edit;
          //Delete;         // I need a procedure to Delete the re     cord that we have looped to!!!
          AccountRemoved := true
          break;
        end;
        tblAllEmailAccounts.Next;
      end;
  end;
  result := AccountRemoved;
end;

what do you suggest
