    Just hold your finger on the account you wanna delete until a menu pops up and voila!

    I didn't realized that long taps were not the same as the menu button! I thought (and in some cases I think they do) just bring up the menu you'd get if you hit the menu button.

    Thanks!

    Where? I just accidentally set up a Yahoo account. I already have the Yahoo app so I don't need the yahoo account available when I click the Email button.

    When I go to Accounts and Sync, only the Yahoo app account shows up.

    Go to Settings-Applications-Manage Applications-email-

    Click on force stop and clear data and clear cache.

    Your account information will be deleted.
