Deleting email account from Droid Razr M

For my email set up, I used my Yahoo account and set it as the default. Now I'd like to delete it and just use my Gmail account.
i've tried tapping and holding the Yahoo account, and I don't get the remove button. Every time I go into Settings > email accounts > acct settings, it's listed as the default email, no matter how many times I've unchecked it. I also don't have it synced.

I haven't messed with a Razr M much... so I'm assuming it's like the razr maxx.

the only thing i have with 3 little lines is the notification bar on the top right. when i pull it down, it lists recent updates, active smartactions, but nothing about my yahoo acct (even when i have my acct open).

Does it have any buttons on the bottom? like a home button, back and search? Its usually beside the home button. If you're on the home screen, and hit it, it should bring up a small list that says wallpaper, manage apps, system settings?

The Razr M has on screen buttons. The three vertical dots in the top bar of the application is called the overflow action. It replaces the menu button for the application.

To get to the phone's settings, pull down the notification bar to open the notification window. At the top should be a settings button. Otherwise you can access the Settings in your application drawer.

To remove an email account from the phone, you will open the phone's settings and scroll down to Accounts. Select it and touch to account you're looking for and from there you should have access to the various options for the account including removing it.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

Steve + Ann, thank you so much for your replies, I've tried your suggestions, and there is still no 'remove' option linked to the email account. Looks like I have to go to the Verizon wireless store. *cringe*

Before you go to the Verizon store try:

Settings > Apps > All  and clear data and cache for Email and Yahoo if it exists.
