When I first set up my blackberry I linked my hotmail account to it so I could check emails. My hotmail account was very spam-heavy so I recently decided to get a new fresh gmail account and get all the services I use (Facebook, Steam, Skype etc etc) changed over to that so I need never use the hotmail one again.
The problem is that I still recieve emails from my hotmail account on my phone. I have 3 folders in my main menu, one "Messages" which shows my gmail messages and bbm messages, just as I want it. A "***@gmail.com" folder which shows only my emails, which I am happy with also. But I also have a "***@hotmail.co.uk" folder which is constantly needing attention due to the spam emails still received by that account.
After searching through these forum as much as my eyeballs would let me I am left with no choice but to ask here. I would like to know if there is a way to unlink that account from my phone so that I am never alerted about any emails to that account and if there is a way to remove the hotmail message folder from my phone completely.
I eagrely await any help and/or suggestions.

That worked completely and I now feel like a buffoon for not figuring that out myself.
Just to clarify for anyone else reading this with the same problem, from the main menu I went to "Setup" then to "Email Settings", selected the offending account and clicked "delete".
My many thanks to you for your swift and effective advice
