Samsung Infuse 4G Email accounts

Samsung Infuse 4G Email accounts

Is there supposed to be a way to delete an email account?  I have the new Android 2.2, and I have set up multiple email addresses for the EMAIL icon INBOX.  I would like to remove some, but when I go to the ACCOUNTS selection, they are listed with no visible means to delete any of them.  What am I missing here?  If I select one, I get switched to the email list.  If I select MORE, all I get are the account settings.  Is there no way to delete an email account?

Finally found the answer buried in the Android user guide, not the Samsung Infuse manual.  Seems as if you press on the account, and hold it, a menu pops up.  On that menu is the option to REMOVE ACCOUNT.

Even-though you said 2.2, did you mean updating to 2.3 Gingerbread?

The original post is over 6 months old.  Gingerbread was in development at the time, and just a rumor for the Infuse.  My Infuse came with 2.2 preloaded.  So, no, I didn't mean 2.3.

No problem.  Actually, I'll be glad to see Gingerbread, I think.  I'm having wome weird issues with my phone now.  Not sure whether it's the apps (I don't run many) or the os, but I'm seeing the phone get hung up more ane more often.  Having to turn it off and back on to clear the lockouts.  That's getting pretty tedious!!!

Did you get your update thru Kies Mini (lucky few) or through the "fix" posted on the forum?

 

Noticed a few more posts coming in that are now having problems with various aspects of GB...not good.

 

I haven't updated yet.....

Re: Samsung Infuse 4G Email accounts

Sorry to mislead you.  I haven't updated yet.  What I should have said is, I will be glad to get GB, if it will resolve the issues I am currently having with 2.2.  I'm a novice with Android, hence, the post at the beginning of this thread.  I have no idea what Kies Mini is.

Got it. Yeah, the delete account option is not easily findable. Maybe they made it that way so you don't accidentally delete an account, IDK.

And I thought maybe something was different with the GB version.

Re: Samsung Infuse 4G Email accounts

HI, I just had to sign up too because this was helpful for me.  I had a problem with not getting emails.  I did but then they stopped.  The reason was because I CHANGED MY PASSWORD on my email accounts.  I had to change the passwords on my phone as well.  To change your password, PRESS AND HOLD DOWN the EMAIL ACCOUNT go into ACCOUNT SETTINGS then INCOMING SERVER SETTINGS then you will see PASSWORD.  Just delete and reenter, hit NEXT !!!  the emails are now coming into the phone!! Smiley Very Happy
