    So if I continue having email problems I might consider doing a reset... But how exactly do you do that?

    Tap options, system settings, privacy, factory reset.... and select erase data. And you'll be good to go :)

    Yes it will wipe the phone and leave it in a stock factory setting. Backup your internal storage to your SD card and remove it prior to the FDR. Other stuff like APPS and Contacts should be backed up to Google if you use it, other stuff like SMS can be backed up from some APPS you can find in the Play Store.

    What he^^said. You don't have to backup the removable sdcard if you just remove it :) but its always better to be safe than sorry :)
