    I picked up my Droid at the Verizon store and the clerk set up my email incorrectly. I set up another email account correctly and now would like to erase the one they set up. But I can't see how to do it. Does anyone have any tips?

    Thanks.

    You can also go to Setttings > Manage Applications > Email > clear data

    Manage Applications is also where you can uninstall apps.

    Just for informational purposes, newer devices (Razr with OS 2.3.6) do not use this technique of Email>accounts>tap and hold. Instead all accounts (including email like pop3) are stored in Settings>Accounts. To delete, open the specific account's settings and Remove Account.

    Thank you for this very important FYI. I was frustrated that previous advice seemed to apply to everyone else but me! Your tip pointed me right to it.
