I didn't try Matthew's solution but it seems the safer solution to try first. If that doesn't work though, I deleted the entire conversation from the outbox, having given up on trying to keep the conversation. I was surprised to find that this only deleted the queued message. The rest of the conversation stayed intact in my inbox.

You can also simply disable email checking from one application. For Email: Settings-> [Account] -> Sync Frequency, set to never.

Just an update to the solution for Android 5.1: you may have to deactivate auto sync before selecting the exchange account to be able to access the settings where you can remove it. Otherwise it kept kicking me back to the "accept/cancel" notification and not allowing access to alter the settings. Auto sync is a checkbox option in the "..." menu on the ...

Probably a bit late to the party, but I'm recording this here for posterity. My wife's Xperia Z5 Compact (Android 5.?), as well as my own Samsung S3 (4.3) suffer from this same problem. I've pulled down the source code to the most recent email client, and it appears that the only authentication mechanisms that the native email client supports is PLAIN, ...

It seems that this isn't possible at the moment. The support article for Gmail on Android states: [You can] set default action & swipe to archive or delete messages for Gmail accounts. For non-Gmail accounts, the default is always delete, so even if you change this setting to archive, your messages will still be deleted.

One way would be to clear the data for Gmail via the Settings app.

You cannot uninstall Email as it's a system app. Either disable Gmail or Email from Settings->Apps->All . Or root your phone and then uninstall it using apps like System App Remover If you can't do either of the above two, just somehow try to logout from either Gmail or Email so as to avoid double mails. Or if you just don't want those notications alone, ...

I just tried it out and it seems like this is not possible. However, did you know that you can use aliases for your Gmail Account? If your address is for instance "maxmuster@gmail.com", you can also use "maxmuster+school@gmail.com" or "maxmuster+work@gmail.com", and all E-mails will land in the same inbox. Then you can filter them by recipient-address, to ...

Everything in the notification is set by the app that created it. So in the case of your email, it's the email client. Note that in recent Android versions, you can expand most notifications by pulling down on them with two fingers. In Gmail, for example, if you have a notification about several emails, you can expand it from "3 new messages" to show the ...

You can easily sync your desktop Outlook with your Samsung phone using the Samsung Smart Switch software. You can find the program at http://www.samsung.com/us/smart-switch/. The only thing I do not like about it is there is no way to just sync your calendar from Outlook to your phone. It insists on syncing in both directions. The contacts can be ...

This is happening because your phone is setup to use POP3 and the POP server is marking emails read after downloading them on your Galaxy S7 Android. You can set up Exchange on your phone to have an exact copy of the mailbox on each device or you need to manually mark the emails as unread which is not a very practical thing to do.

POP3 is meant to mark the server copy as read once it's been downloaded Completely. The default setting in the stock Email app is 2kb of the email is downloaded. If changed to one of the higher options, you risk completely downloading the email, and the server will mark it read at that point. (It's not a bug, it's a feature, see an old Superuser question): ...

I think that you want to use eNotify. It is an email notification filtering app with extensive Android Wear support. It supports use cases like: "Only notify me if the mail is from my boss or wife and it is between 8am and 10pm Mon through Fri" For Wear watches, it supports a stacked inbox view of notifications and allows voice replies and other commands.

The email accounts are saved in the the file accounts.db under /data/system/users/<userId>/. If you're the primary user, then the userId should be 0. You can also consider taking the accounts' backup using Titanium Backup. Offline contacts are handled by Contacts Storage (com.android.providers.contacts) app and the contacts are stored in its data ...

Yes you can, to get this working just click on the button on left upper side of window and click on you email, now you'll get option to add another account. *P.S on the image it shows "Personal" you just click on "Google" since it's Google account

There are another one or two topics on this over at XDA-developers, and I haven't been able to find a solution or cause for the problem. I suggest you use the Gmail app, because it has great support for Emails that are "non-google". The most obvious (however I could be wrong) answer to this is a bug in the Samsung Email app (But if you're on Lollipop you ...

Found it - you have to go through the phone's general settings, not the Email app. Settings > Personal > Accounts > Exchange ActiveSync, then select your account, then there's a option "Remove" in the menu from the ... dots menu icon at the top right of the screen.

I figured this out myself and I'm posting the instructions below in case others have trouble as well. Login to your Google Voice account. Click on the cog near the top-right of your screen then select "Settings" from the drop-down. Click on the "Voicemail & Text" tab. Under the "Text Forwarding" header, uncheck "Forward text messages to my email:" ...

Download Microsoft Outlook and have it replace your default Android app. When I did this the problem was fixed without making any special changes.
