Hi, I am using an HTC desire S with Android v 2.3.3 installed on it. I have a question on Background Data and Auto-Sync settings and the combination of these settings. I have my work email (MS exchange) and gmail (IMAP/POP3) set up on the phone and access it using the Mail app which is pre-installed on the phone. I have set up my Auto-Sync update settings such that my work email updates via Push and gmail updates every 5 mins but Auto-Sync is turned OFF. My Background Data however is turned ON. With this combination of settings, I don't get emails on my work email (as expected) but get emails from gmail every 5 mins. Not sure why gmail is completely ignoring the Auto-Sync OFF setting. Is this standard functionality? I would expect that if Auto-Sync is turned off then all accounts listed under Auto-Sync will not automatically sync (even if Background Data is enabled). Thanks in advance.
