can I safely delete and re-create a gmail account without affecting storage folders?

After importing from a .pst file, I have folders for two gmail accounts but in reality I only have one account. I believe the .pst file might have been corrupted before I tried importing it. I would like to simply delete both accounts and create a new one, hopefully re-syncing everything in my gmail account under one folder. If I try this, will it have any effect on the storage folders? 

Assuming you are connecting to your gmail account via IMAP, deleting the account in eM Client and recreating it will have no impact on your gmail folders and everything should re-sync just fine.
