Help Duplicate Gmail Accounts

My Razr Maxx is driving me nuts with email notifications. Every time I have a network inturruption I get about 6 email notifications for incoming mail that was deleted earlier. Sometimes it will do this every 10 seconds like it's in a loop.
I have tried everything and finally created another gmail account with the same address( suprised it let me do that). Now I have (2) identical gmail accounts and every time I try to delete the original, I get the invalid credentials error.
I would try deleting BOTH email accts, then "clear defaults" and "clear cache" in the email app, and start over.
that is actually a very good idea
but it helps if you clear the system cache too..whenever the ics starts screwin around...clear the cache and it will become the good kid again

Are you using the same gmail account as the one that is registered to the phone?

Did you clear defaults and cache on the email app, and/or clear the android cache partition as was mentioned above?

Have you soft reset the phone? (vol down and power at same time)

I have done all of the above and I guess a factory reset is the only way I will ever get gmail working right again. I suspect something got glitched when I upgraded to ICS since it was working fine until that point.
The irony is that I have changed my gmail password online and it is still somehow getting into my account but will not let me into same on phone.
