Stop receiving email

How do I stop receiving email?  I set up the email accounts, but I am being woke up at night with email alerts and want to stop receiving email on my BOLD ... how do I stop it?


Also, can I set up a seperate ring tone for specific people?

Re: Stop receiving email

You can set the profile to phone only, you can edit your current profile so that certain people get email messages but going to profiles/advanced and edit your profile.  but if i were you  I would just use the phone only one when your sleeping, personally I set it to phone only all the time, and just try to make a habit of checking it alot

If someone helped you give them kudos. Research all info!

Re: Stop receiving email

Right, the best thing would be just to change to another profile.


However if you want to stop the emails you should be able to go into Manage Connections | Mobile Network Options and turn the Data Services to Off. Doing that will disable all data though, not just email, but you'll still be able to make phone calls and send/receive text messages.

Or if you don't want phone to wake you as well just create auto turn on and off and set the time.
