Default How to change Email default program?

Just got the note 3 a few days ago. Came from HTC One m7. I have not been able to disable the default email and use the gmail app. If I go to delete the email account in the default app it says it will delete all my contacts etc. How to get around this? Thanks.

If you're rooted try using titanium backup and freeze the default email app and see what happens. Worst case just unfreeze the app and you'll be back to where you started.

Thanks for the reply. I just removed the email account from the app. It did not seem to mess things up. My contacts did refresh, but all there. Why they don't just let you disable it and use gmail app?

Honestly for me my email never used that app. It went automatically into gmail app. I had to setup my other email through the app though since it was a @Live.com email I wanted to use as well.
