How can I delete the Hotmail account from my HTC AT&T Windows Mobile OS 7 cell phone?

I need to delete this Hotmail account.

I have already configured two other email accounts on this phone, a Gmail and an Exchange server email account.

I have the option of deleting either the Gmail account or the Exchange server account, but I don't seem to have the option to delete this Hotmail email account.

What do I need to do so that I can delete this Hotmail email account from my HTC AT&T phone?

The first Live ID that you add to the phone becomes the primary account for
the phone and you cannot choose what you want to synch for this account.
The only way to delete the primary Live ID account is to perform a hard
reset on the phone and then start over again.
