If the stacks are part of your stack file, you can right-click on them 
in the App Browser and choose "Delete sub-stack" from the popup menu. 
However I recently had a similar problem until I remembered that the 
sub-stacks were actually library stacks, not true sub-stacks. Open the 
Inspector for the main stack and have a look in the Stack files 
section. I expect that you will see most of the stacks there. 
libEmailHelp may a sub-stack of libEmail so you may have to top-level 
that libEmail stack in order to delete it.
