Hi all,

I just got my first iPhone--an iPhone 4 (I know..."welcome to the 21st century, you're only still a couple of generations behind"...lol).

When I click to enter the Mail app on my iPhone, it shows me a list of inboxes. My Gmail account is the one I use frequently and it's the one I want to work with; I've set it to be the default on the iPhone, and it's in the list of inboxes.

However, my iCloud email account, which I don't use at all, is also in the list of inboxes. And worse, it's the account that Mail goes to first when I click on the app.

Is there any way to only remove the iCloud email account from Mail (while keeping all the other functions of iCloud intact)?

Settings --> iCloud.

Switch off Mail.

It's an iPhone. Not everything is *this* straightforward, but Apple do try harder than most.
