I just noticed something really cool on my Gmail account — if I go into account settings, I can choose to delete the email account I have.

I think this is great. I have a number of old orphaned free email addresses (yahoo, hotmail, etc) that are still out there as spam receptors because I couldn’t find a way to delete them. There was no simple one-click (with appropriate verification) option to get rid of them. I’ve long since forgotten the passwords and even lost track of the secondary email addresses so I’ve got no way of going in there and finding out if any long lost friends are writing to me.

An easy deletion of account is exactly what is needed. Gmail rock.
