So, I just deleted the e-mail account myself, and I also removed the "e-mail" program from the list of "device administrators" in the phone's location and security settings. Is there anything else I need to do to prevent my former company from doing a remote wipe?

Thanks for any advice.
So if it an android put your own personal SD Card into the Phone go into your settings and phone storge and tell your phone to move everything onto your sd card. You might have to do somethings your self like move your emails or apps, but if it is your own phone they do not have the right to wipe everything off your phone. But they can not touch your phone if you do not want them to. they can kick you off there Exchange Server tho so you will not have access to the Company Email anymore
