Lumia 820, change main e-mail address

How do you change (or remove)  the principle e-mail address? All other addresses show "delete" as an option but not the first address.

If you are referring to the Windows Live id then only way you can change is by resetting the device (setting-->about-->reset your phone) and registering a NEW email id. You can't remove it ..

Be warned that any data linked with the original id will be lost. If you have installed / purchased any applications from the MarketPlace will also have to be bought again ...

The main Live ID is also the "Registration" for the phone and apps installed. You will have to pay for paid apps again if you change this. I presume you know where this is leading to. A hard reset is required to change the phone Live ID.
