    The default Gmail app which comes pre-installed, i dont find any option to reduce its frequency of mail check. Its always in a "push email" mode. Since its consuming alot of power i was wondering if there is any way to fix this. for me a check in 1/2 hrs in enough :D

    Only if you use another app to check mail, like K9.

    actualy you can change the freq' on the stock email app.

    just to to the email app, when your messages come up click "menu" then "more" then "account settings" its the third one down

    ive set mine to every hour

    There is nothing wrong with Gmail app, but you cant change mail check frequency.

    actually i found a way for that

    setting>>accounts and sync >> list of accounts added for background data sync and auto sync options

    their in the gmail account you can disable sync for gmail, picasa calender etc...

    but point is this will never check mail now, i'll have to manually open "Gmail" app and keep checking. or use another app for notifications. But yes this saves alot of battery :)
