Hi all,
I'm leaving a job after 4 years of working from my Macbook Pro. Though it's for work, I must confess I've used it for a lot of personal things as well.

My gmail account is connected to the computer and I can't figure out how to get it off. See the attached screen shot.

Someone suggested I create a new throw away account and then delete my gmail. However, when I click the PLUS button at the bottom left, and add the throwaway account, I hit DONE and only the gmail address is displayed.

Lastly, I tried to type in ~/Library/Messages/, and delete the chat.db, chat.db.shm, chat.db.wal files from this folder, but it won't let me empty them in the trash.

How do I get this gmail account off my computer?!
