Hello Steve, you should be able to remove the gmail account, or any other email account for that matter.

To remove a Google account, try:
  • From Settings, swipe to and tap Accounts and backup.
  • Tap Accounts, and then select your Google account.
  • Tap Remove account, and then tap Remove account again to confirm.


To remove an email, its essentially the same process:
  • From Settings, swipe to and tap Accounts and backup.
  • Tap Accounts, and then select your email account.
  • Tap Remove account, and then tap Remove account again to confirm.


Let me know how you get on!
