I want to only manually sync my email. I generally don't use the email on my phone but occasionally want to get some. For example, right now I have a couple reservations (hotel and other) that I want to have the confirmations on my phone rather than say printing it and bringing it with me. I have a couple accounts set up and basically the email works ok. but in a prior version of email (original moto droid) I could leave auto syncing off and on the occasion where I wanted the email press the sync item and I was good. with my S4 mini this doesn't seem to work right. This is using the email not gmail app. I have two comcast accounts set up. If I keep Sync Email off, when I press the little yin-yang circle at the bottom of the email list I get "Email Sync turned off". OK. So I turn on email sync and then set sync schedule, roaming, everything I can find to manual. When I do that, it still retrieves email periodically. Short of digging deep in to settings when I want to get email to turn on sync is there any easy way to just get email when I want it. That being say once a month or so?
