    Many Hero owners have that problem unless they setup the Google mail application when you unbox and switch the phone on for the 1st time.
    You could reset the phone and start over.

    That's not good I have spent two days setting it up. I read somewhere that the is a way around it without doing a factory reset but can't remember where a read it.

    Menu > Settings > Applications > Manage Applications > Google Apps > "Clear data" > OK.

    This will delete the Google account details on your mobile.

    To enter new details Menu > Settings > Data Synchronization > Google and you'll be prompted with the set up dialogue. Enter your new account details. Hope this helps :)
