@Lou_Brocation If the Samsung Email app is asking you for this info, just force quit that app and forget about it. Since you are happy using the Gmail app. 

But is there a misunderstanding here? Are you saying that your Samsung account is asking for verification after you added your Gmail email to your Samsung account? If so, the process should be that you:

  1. You add your Gmail address to your Samsung account.
  2. Your Samsung account sends a verification email to your Gmail address. 
  3. Opening the email and clicking the link should take you to your Samsung account.
  4. If you aren't already logged into your Samsung account, you will be asked for the password to your Samsung account to verify the Gmail address.

When I select the mail app there is a message saying to use this I need verify you account, but I'm using Gmail so I shouldn't have to verify anything.

@Lou_Brocation It is asking you for verification that it is actually you. Not someone else trying to gain access to your email account.

Well it has an orange exclamation point next to my Gmail addresses. If I select one it then asks me for the password. I suspect that it will then use a Samsung mail server and I don't want that

@Lou_Brocation Regardless of which email app you are using, you will need to enter your password for the email account so that app can show you your email.

If you feel uncomfortable with using the Samsung email app, you could use the Gmail app for your Gmail emails.
Then you could: disconnect your emails, revoke permissions, revoke access, clear the cache, clear the data (which would also include the cache, so might as well go with this one), discontinue use, & uninstall. Technically, I think uninstalling would handle all of that to be honest.
Then you can still have an app for your email without having to just go through an internet browser of choice- and it would be the official app specifically made for Gmail by Google themselves.
I hope that this somehow helps.
