A more direct way to address the outrageous data roaming costs is to shut off data roaming. Settings>Mobile Network set "While Roaming" to Off or Prompt. That way, you can use WiFi in France to get your mail, when available, and you will automatically get all your mail when you return home. Caveat, you'll probably want to turn data roaming back on when you get home. Your carrier probably uses local roaming agreements to provide full coverage in your home area.
OTOH, given that you've already left for vacation, my advice is probably not very useful to you.
