    On the email menu select “MORE”. then “SETTINGS” . There you will find an option to delete the account. It should be at the bottom of the list. I deleted one email account and (so far) it has no effect on my other accounts in the phone nor my PC.

    On my Incredible I went into menu, settings, applications, manage applications, all. Click on the mail application and cleared data. This deleted the entire email acct. Of course if you have more than one pop email acct setup be careful. I assume it would delete all of them. I use the phones Gmail app seperately so that was not affected when I did this.

    Open the e-mail account you want to delete
    Hit: Menu – More – Settings
    there’s an option to delete account under settings

    Hope this helps
