    Yep. But I have a feeling that you might not quite understand what's happening with your phone.

    This is a google phone. You want to utilize gmail, not ignore it. If anything you want to ignore the email app, if possible.

    I only have gmail, and I made the mistake of setting up my gmail account on the email app. So I got the multiple emails. Now I don't know what your email is, but I would try to delete it from the email app. If your email is not gmail, go on line with a computer to your gmail account and go to the settings. Set your email up to be forwarded to gmail.

    If you have gmail as your only account, then you may have to do a factory data reset to remove gmail off that email app. That's what I had to do.

    Hope that helps, and if I'm not even close I apologize. You didn't give a lot of information.

    Go online from a computer, to that email app. (If you don't remember the password, reset it on the computer then your phone) Delete all the emails you don't want. Reinstall the email on your phone if they are not cleared.
