Messed up entering gmail into regular mail account, can't delete
Just got the better half a new Incredible 4g, and after setting it up with her Gmail account, I entered the same account username and password under the regular mail account. Now she gets notices twice for new email. Went into settings and tried to delete the account under regular mail, and I get an error message that the server cannot be contacted. Tried this several times both in WiFi and with a 4G connection. Same error message. It will not let me delete the account, I cannot change the username or password. The only thing I found to do was to set the sync on this account to manual only.
I'm guessing that because this is the Gmail account associated with the phone, it won't let me change anything, and the error message that the server cannot be contacted is bogus.
Is there any way to delete this "account' from the regular mail, short of doing a factory reset? A factory reset would be painful.
Thanks for any help.
