    I tried searching for this but had no luck. Is there any app you can download that will make your email accounts stop polling when the app. is run, such as at night? This would make it easier than having to go into each account and change the settings....

    TIA

    That only seems to work with Gmail, but if I am using another email client it still seems to poll even when the sync is off...thanks tho for your help.

    The only thing that would help is to either switch the synch frequency to "NEVER" or switch the phone to "airplane mode"

    There's no app that you can select that will change all your email accounts to "sync never"?

    That only works for synced accounts [ie Facebook and Google/Gmail]. As Gmail actually "pushes" e-mail, you are still likely to get at least SOME e-mails with sync off, but it will happen less.

    If you're using the EMAIL app, You'll have to disable notifications...

    Here's a list of apps that might allow you to setup automatic "profiles." I haven't looked through them all, but you should check them out. I know there are apps that will allow you to setup to have certain things disabled at certain times that you set [Like when you're trying to sleep]
    Sound Profiles applications for Android? by popularity - AndroidZoom.com

    Personally, I've disabled all notification of e-mail except for the LED light, so I only get bothered if I happen to see it flash. If you rely on your Droid for IMPORTANT e-mails, I'd suggest an app though.

    Or, depending on the specific goal, maybe just turn off the notifications? There are apps for that.

    Activate "Airplane mode", which disables the radios. No radios = no data in = no notifications. (This also means no phone calls or weather data, etc.)

    If you use the Sound Manager app you can schedule your vibe and sound notifications to turn off while you're sleeping. At least I think that's the idea.
