OK, the solution sucks - but it's a solution.
First, this was one of my first attempts at creating a package which installed multiple extensions - and I got something wrong. I didn't name the manifest file correctly and that's the cause of the issue.
So, the solution - is to rename the manifest file. Once renamed, Joomla will uninstall the package as expected.
change the filename to pkg_email.xml
Then uninstall the package and both plugins.
I have published a new version (2.3.3) with repaired xml manifest files so this issue won't happen again.
