I have two accounts on my iPhone: Gmail and work (via VPN).

The Gmail account is managed via 3rd party app (Gmail app).

But the system won't let me send e-mails such as photos from the Camera Roll via this 3rd app automatically, so I have it on the Mail app also.


So every time that I have to check or reply my work's e-mails I enable VPN, launch Mail app, wait for the system to timeout checking the Gmail account (because the VPN won't let it reach the Gmail server), and then it checks the work account successfully. And that takes a long time (and uses cell data).


Can I prevent the Mail app to check every account that I have added to it? Or putting in another words, can I have a send-only e-mail account on the Mail app on iPhone?


Sorry, English is not my native language.


Thank you,


iPhone 4S, iOS 6.0.1
