If you decide that you don't need your Gmail address anymore, and you're sure you won't want your username in the future, you can simply remove Gmail from your Google Account. Here's how:
  1. Click Settings at the top of any Gmail page, and open the Accounts and Import tab.
  2. Click Google Account settings.
  3. Click Edit next to My products on the right side.
  4. Click Remove Gmail permanently.

Once you delete your Gmail address, you can't reactivate it, and you won't be able to retrieve any messages.


This comes from the Help articles.

You can delete Gmail from your Google account here: https://www.google.com/accounts/DeleteCaribouService If you delete Gmail from your Google Account, then you will no longer be able to send, receive, or access email from your account using Gmail. You'll also be unable to reuse your Gmail username in the future. And any other Google service your are using can be deleted here: https://www.google.com/accounts/EditServices
