Default toggling email accounts

Please Login to Remove!

Is there a way to toggle an email account on and off without having to remove it from the phone and add it again later? I like being able to read my email on my phone but when I go on vacation, I would prefer for my email to not come in on my phone. Sorry if this topic has been covered already.

You can go to Options > Mobile Network and set Data Services to Off. This will stop all data services including email and browsers.

You can also delete the CMIME service book and resend them when you get back.

Remember, please try searching first!

Need a screenshot? ... Like JavaLoader?
Try using BBscreen .....Use JL_Cmder!
or BBScreenShooter!

The only way I know of to stop individual email accounts while keeping others is to remove the account from BIS (if that is what you are using)
