    Hi,

    I have a number of busy email accounts that I have recently added to the Email program on my Galaxy Core Prime. As I spend most of my time sat at my desktop PC, I do not need my emails to be automatically downloaded onto my phone all the time. However, I do want to be able to retrieve them manually on the odd occasions I am away from my PC (ie only when I make a specific effort to retrieve them).

    So, here are the main settings I have used:
    Sync email - checked
    Set sync schedule - manual
    While roaming - manual
    Peak schedule - unchecked

    But... it still periodically retrieves new emails from the servers.

    Can anyone tell me where I am going wrong?

    Many thanks!

    Hi

    Try sync email disabled, then enable it when you want to sync

    Ah yes! Thank you, Girolez. It seems obvious now you mention it!
