    I set up my droid 2 with my corporate account no problem works great, today I went to set up my personal verizon accounts and the one account set up no problem and shows in the my accounts page allowing me to edit or manage the account but the other second account does not show up in the my accounts page to be edited or removed? its there its receiving and sending email? but it does not list in the my accounts page. I tried rebooting, I deleted the first email account thinking it would only list one, nothing seems to work is there another way to remove this account?

    Which email app are you using?

    Here's what I suggest (new scheme first and answer to the question you asked last) :

    Emails: I don't know what email app you use, but try this. It saves battery power and in some cases emails arrive quicker. This scheme will have you using only the Gmail app on the phone for all email accounts whether they are pop3 accounts or Gmail. Go to the Google Gmail inbox on your computer and log into the Gmail account. On the top right of the screen is an option called Settings. In there is an option to have the Gmail program poll your regular, non-Gmail accounts (From the inbox; Settings/Accounts & Import/ Check mail using POP3). Provide the email address and the password. The Google Gmail program will then poll your other accounts on a frequency from 1-5 minutes and push the email immediately to your phone. The polling frequency is determined by each account's activity - more emails = faster polling. This saves battery power because on the android OS pop3 accounts are polled at a frequency of 1-30 minutes and that really eats battery. Because the phone goes and checks those accounts for mail whether there is mail there or not.
    __________________________________________

    Assuming you don't want to change your entire email scheme, I would go to Applications/Manage Applications/All/ then select your email app and clear data and force close it. Assuming it is not the Gmail app you will then have to re-enter your account information.

    I tried the force stop and the clear data but that did not work, I would try the scheme changes but that would still not allow me to remove this account it would just be coming in on 2 accounts then. I am using the stock email app and its a verizon pop account?

    Do the gmail thing and set other app to "polling frequency = never".
