Generally a Security wipe is enough to remove any associated email with any device , it may not help unless your device has some strong IT policy enabled , So to resolve your issue you had to try again , but this time you had to reset your device to factory setting which might help , for help refer to this KB :
KB31291 : How to reset a BlackBerry smartphone to factory settings using BlackBerry Desktop Software
Try it and let us know.
