Default How to Disable email sync?

I just purchased Touchdown by Nitrodesk (incredible app) and was curious how to get the Droid to stop syncing my emails, etc. through their own method? Please be specific with step-by-step instructions of how to disable my corporate account. I only want to have emails going into the "email" folder that are from my personal email moving forward. Thanks,

Jason

Not sure why you need Touchdown if you want to disable your corporate account. That's what Touchdown does, it syncs corporate accounts, with more functionality than the included email app. You can make it sync manually only.

Open Touchdown
Press the "settings" button (the gray button on the bottom that looks like a gear)
Press the "advanced" button (labeled "advanced" on the top right)
Uncheck the box at the top that says "Periodically check for changes"

That should keep your phone from syncing unless you tell it to, or I suppose, if you send an email from your phone.

Hope this is what you wanted.

Default re: disable sync

sorry, what i need to do is turn off the sync from whatever program the droid is using to pull email, contacts, and calendar from my corporate (outlook) account. right now both touchdown and whatever program droid uses are both pulling emails and giving me calendar reminders. because touchdown offers many more of the things i need, i only want to use that and not the droid program. hope this helps clarify what i'm looking to do. thanks,

or just delete your corporate account completely from the email app. if you are using touchdown, why bother even having your corporate acct in the email app?
