    Hi,

    I'm not sure if this is possible, but on my Galaxy S3 I constantly get notifications for new email - I have found an option to disable those notifications, but will it still be actively downloading them etc in the background?

    Ideally I only want to see new emails when I actually load the app.

    Thanks :)

    Thanks, I can't find that in particular but I can go:

    Menu button -> Settings -> Goggle Account -> Gmail sync -> Google Account -> Sync Gmail?

    Is that the one? Also, will that remove the mail from my account? :D

    Nope it wont remove the mail. It just means it wont download emails unless you open the app and click on refresh

    I have the same issue and have to hit refresh. Not if its because I have synch turned off. i do this because I don't want all the Google contacts etc. downloaded to my phone. Is there a way to sync just the mail and not the contacts?

    If you go to menu>settings>accounts & sync and tap on the gmail account you can uncheck sync contacts.
