Is if possible to stop e-mail downloads when connecting to new WiFi hotspot?


I have multiple e-mail accounts set up on my playbook.  They are all set for manual download schedules.  Despite this I find that when I connect to a WiFi network, all the accounts download the latest e-mails.  I woudl like to switch this off so that my e-mail credentials aren't sent over WiFi networks that I don't trust.

if your accounts are using SSL, you have nothing to worry about


if they are not using SSL, you should switch to a service that supports SSL
