    Are you using the stock email app? There should be a way to delete an individual acct.

    Are you using the email app that came on the phone, or did you download an app from the market?

    You can set up multiple email accts on one email app. Are you saying you have two gmail accts on the phone? Your paid apps will be linked to your gmail acct, so if you factory reset, gmail recognizes that they have already been purchased.

    You should not lose your paid apps they are linked to your gmail acct.
    When you reset your phone droid market will sync with your phone as long as you use the same gmail acct. You can uninstall a paid app then go to droid market click the menu button the hard key one on your phone go to"my apps" and re-download it for additional cost.
