Well I don't think you can delete it, unless you wish to email an administrator, however you can change your email.

go to https://launchpad.net/~username/+editemails

where 'username' is your launchpad username, for example, if my username was 'joebloggs', i would go to

https://launchpad.net/~joebloggs/+editemails

Once there remove your email (or if you need at least one email, put in a bogus one)

Alvaro you are receiving a lot of spam because you have registered your user with your email address as username, and then you have reply to answer using email watch:
https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gparted/+question/43779
so your mail address is exposed to the net.
I suggest you to change your exposed username now. https://launchpad.net/~alvarorincon2005

Deleting your user can't solve your issue.

Make new mail address for your childrens, and change the password to the old one so only you can use it to download messages (and clear unwanted).

Then i use Thunderbird mail under Ubuntu, i love it.
Thunderbid managing of spam in a good way.

Hope this helps
