My Huawei P8 should only ever sync mails whenever I open the mail app and manually ask for it. This is for mental hygiene to keep my spare time free of any unwanted distractions.
So I've disabled any sync schedule in the account settings of the mail app:
I have to keep the "Sync email" switch on as otherwhise sync wouldn't work at all anymore.
I'd expect that there's no automatic sync at all anymore. But still it happens every 1 or 2 weeks that I get a notification on my home screen even though I did not touch the mail app:
That's quite annoying. How can I really disable automated sync and make it only check for new mails when I want it?
It shouldn't be related but I've "secured" the mail app with the built in "App lock" feature with a PIN.
