    Hi,

    I'm new to Android, so this may be silly questions for the seasoned user, but anyway: I'm now using K-9mail for all my e-mail accounts including Gmail. I would like to remove my Gmail account from the actual Gmail app since I am not using it. How do I do that? Also, if I uninstall the Gmail appl itself, how can I get it installed again if I should want to? I do not see it in the Market.

    When I use to use K-9, I just turned off the notifications from Gmail in the Gmail settings; however, I quickly returned to Gmail because K-9 rapes battery and isn't really that much better.

    K9 doesn't use much battery power for me. Maybe they fixed it in one of the updates.

    I'll keep the Gmail app around in case that happens to me. You do not know if from where I can reinstall the Gmail app if I choose to uninstall it?

    If it's not on the marketplace, then I'm not sure. I didn't think you could even uninstall it. Why do you want to take it off?
