How to turn off Sync on an account (2.3.3)?

2011-10-14, 11:43 AM

Hi All,

While I really like a lot of the 2.3.3 improvements, I find one behavior annoying, and was wondering if anyone had an idea how to fix the problem.

Problem - every time a new email comes in, I receive a notification alert.  Since the notification is useful for other critical functions (receiving alerts on a system down - I am a Network dude), I cannot disable notifications.  I find it very annoying that I have to run over to my phone every time I receive an email, thinking it might be a system down notification.  I cannot selectively disable notifications by account.

On My Xoom tablet, when setting up accounts, I have the option to Sync the account automatically, or not.  If automatic sync is off, I can check my email at my leaisure, while only receiving notifications for important events.

Any ideas how to resolve?  Might a future patch (2.3.4) fix this?

Thanks in advance,

Mark

I get around this by using gmail and a third party app. If you use gmail, you can have different notification tones for each account.  I also use TouchDown for Exchange (have since the original Droid) and since it's a separate app, I assign a unique notification tone to it and accomplish the same thing for my "work" e-mails.  Options are limited if you use the native system exclusively as far as separate notification tones are concerned.  - MarkC

Thanks for the feedback- much appreciated. Touchdown looks slick. Am evaluating it now. It synced right up with Exchange 2010.
