This is for my Nexus so it might not be the exact steps.
Scroll down to Accounts.
Touch the type of account you want to look at.
Touch the specific account to open the details about the account.
Touch the Overflow/Menu button (three dots)
Select "Remove account" and follow any instructions.
The menu only gives me one option, that is what is driving me crazy. It only allows me to "synch now." All the other Droid phones I've had will give me the delete option as well. Don't know whether it's the phone or Jelly Bean. I really don't want to do another factory reset. The mail will run fine after that for about three or four days. Unless I can solve this mistery, guess I'll just go back and use my Razr Maxx. Thanks anyways Ann154
The long press on the account listing doesn't work either?
It is beginning to sound like I should pay a visit to a store to experience this Razr M model.
Long press doesn't do a thing. Funny though. When I checked it this morning, it had a bunch of mail for me. Strange phone and/or OS, or both. Is there some forum, anywhere, just for Jelly Bean that you know of?
You could try Android Central or if Google itself has a forum. Or maybe Motorola since they programmed the thing.
Having the EXACT SAME ISSUE here over the last few days!!! Droid Razr M on Jelly Bean
Email Synch not recognized, etc... account exsists.. can't delete.. etc.
Found it. Settings>EMail Accounts>Account Settings>Email account. Then you must scroll down to the very bottom. Here you will see "Remove Account." However, I did delete my account and reinstalled it. Didn't help. I'm going to one of the Verizon stores and crying "HELP!".
Well, I am glad you found the location where you can remove the account.
Good luck with getting your email accounts to work.
There must be some sort of system issue going on or something ... there are other threads talking about e-mail sync issues the past few days involving other phones. I just saw one from a basic phone user as well.
