    Hi!

    I know this has been asked before but everything I try doesn't work!

    I have set up two email account in the email app, a hotmail and a gmail.
    I want to delete them both!

    If I press menu in the app I only get the "Add Account" Option.

    If I press and hold the email account name nothing happens.

    If I go to settings>accounts & sync it was under "manage accounts" and I deleted it, but it still shows up in the email app and as soon as I open it it reappears in accounts.

    What am I doing wrong?

    Bex
