    Hi,

    Sorry I tried to search but didn't come up with anything - anyone know how to remove the email account from the email app on the phone? It's real easy to add an email account but I can't seem to find how to remove one.

    The reason is I've redundantly set up accounts for both the gmail and email apps. Help anyone?

    I got u man:
    Go to SETTINGS, touch accounts & sync settings, select the account you want to remove, next screen LOOK DOWN at the bottom there will be a remove account button, press it, and confirm.

    It does not show up under manage accounts?

    Does any of your accounts show up there?

    Is it gmail you are trying to get rid of?

    Took me a while to figure out...

    :motdroidvert: Touch the email icon>(if it come up in your in box touch the back key to go to the acct page) touch and hold your finger on the acct you want to remove, it'll vibe (if you have the vibe on) and a menu will come up. The last thing on that menu is Remove Account> touch that > confirm > DONE. No more being awaken at 4am because you got spam in your inbox. :icon_ banana:

    Thanks Apache, didn't even know that holding down on the account would bring up more options! I just got the phone today on my lunch break so I haven't gotten a chance to do much with it yet!

    It will not let me remove the gmail account unless I reset to factory default ?? It also states than that I will loose all personal data. So do I reset or not. Hate to start all over again.
