can I remove gmail email account but leave gmail contacts and calendar?

hello everyone,

 

I want to remove gmail e-mail account from my HUB, but I don't want to remove gmail account entirely as I still want to sync calendar and - more important - contacts. Is any way to do that? To fullfil your quriosity I have configured domain with my google account, so I have secondary email account which is the right domain address and I rather don't use google address in my messages.

 

OR at least:

 

Is there a way to entirely disable email account sync? I have set refresh in settings to "manual" but it still does refresh when I enable wifi or data which is crazy because bb10 ate my all data plan when I wanted to check bus because I get a lot of emails.

Should be no problem. You might have to re-add the account from scratch and leave email off but calendar and contacts sync on, but this should work as long as your GMail account is still valid.

I was ready to delete all account and re-add it, so I entered Accounts->Gmail->Messages, I've pressed "Delete" and there is message that "messages, calendar and contacts will be deleted" but actually it deletes only e-mail, so it works without re-adding, like it should, but with wrong warning.

 

Thanks for inspiration!

Re: can I remove gmail email account but leave gmail contacts and calendar?

I have the same problem, but I could not find the ''Accounts - gmail - messages' menu. Are you refering to set-up / internet email accounts? If that's the one, when I click on the gmail account, there is no distinct menu for messages , I only have the option to delete the full account. Did this work for your w/o deleting the contacts, or is there another menu I should be in?

thanks for the help.
