    Are there any apps out there that would allow me to have both gmail and exchange switch from "as mail arrives" to "manual" certain times of the day?

    For instance, I sit in front of my work computer most of the day and don't require immediate email to my phone, same with gmail.. So from say 8-5pm I don't really need instant mail. Also, from say 11pm - 6am I also don't need instant mail since I'm sleeping :)

    it would be important that this would be controlled by days (for instance, I would like to be able to schedule the instant mail off on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 8am - 5pm.

    TIA for any suggestions,

    Haven't tried Setting Profiles. But if that doesn't work...

    The Android Power Control widget allows you to turn off sync. Then you can turn it on when you want, and it will sync right up for you... then turn it back off.

    Thanks guys...

    I installed the lite version of settings Profiles, and did some basic setup. I can't turn off syncing in the lite version but I can test the location based profile changing. that actually works better than time based... On days I'm not at work I'd just assume keep things on.

    Thanks again!! Hopefully settings profiles works out, and I'll buy the full version.

    If you want it time based after all, look at timerriffic. Can't beat the price (since it's free ;)) and it works perfectly.

    Timmerriffic will only control the audio/vibrate notifications, it won't allow you to schedule sync times. I use it though, and it works well.

    Wifi and bluetooth control is available out of the box and if you install APNDroid, timerrific can control your 2G/3G data connection too.

    What does the paid version give you that the free version does not?
