    Ive got email set up on my DHD for when im out/away from home for a few days and might want to check it on the go.

    In the settings for send and recieve, ive got it set to only update when I tell it too manually, which in theory means it should do just that, only when I tell it too!
    Yet without fail, it goes and downloads the last days worth of emails at least once a day on its own, sometimes twice, then goes and marks the lot on the webmail as read which means I then forget about them later if its something I want to view on a computer.

    Ok so its not a big problem, but its annoying. Any fixes known bar removing the account settings and just re-adding every time I want to use it?

    To add to the above, which settings for send and receive, within the app or via the accounts and sync menu?

    The send and recieve setting in the default mail app.
    But now you mention it, I hadnt actually thought of looking in the accounts and sync area, which I just have done and sure enough, IMAP/POP3 mail is now on the sync list whereas it never used to be!
    Have now told it to stop through there, so will see if that stops it! Cheers!
