    How can I stop email (Gmail) from being checked all the time. I want to manually check it as required.
    Thanks.

    I think you can do this by clicking Menu->Settings->Data Synchronization->Google and turn off Auto-Sync.

    Or, if you only want to turn off Gmail synchronization, just uncheck the Gmail option (in Settings/Data synchronization)

    Is there any way to tell it not to check e.g. between 23:00 and 08:00?

    If you dont want it to check while youre in bed stick a wifi on/off switch on one of your screens and just switch it on/off before/after bed.

    Or, if you want it automated, you could use Locale to turn off wifi/mobile settings during this time.

    For the first one -do you mean every night to remember to switch it off manually? I'm far too lazy and forgetful for that, right up until an email arrives and I get woken up.

    Yeah Locale is definitely an option, but I was expecting time-based profile switching to come in the phone as standard.

    Why don't you just turn off the "sound" part of the notification ?
