    See if you can delete it via your email app (which you have not specified).

    Ok, i little confused now. it's been about year and a half since i setup the yahoo email on my phone. I thought there was a email setup in the settings, don't see one. When i go to "Accounts & sync" do not see my sbcglobal account listed even knowing it is still on the phone. How do i know, it still listed for the email short cut. The email app per say is the one that came with the phone, i think. I had sbcglobal already when i got the phone. I deleted everything off the phone that's associated with that email address. I still can't delete it.

    See, if you delete the shortcut it doesn't delete the account. The account still wants to check for email so it runs and runs and runs. I tried to change the settings with out success. mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm Droid doesn't like this yahoo account for some reason. O well, new phone maybe in few months anyways. Ill just charge my phone every 6 so hours, no big deal....:(

    Have you tired to clear data for the app?
    You can always do a hard reset.
