With this turned off, I am getting new mail "sometimes". It doesn't pop up on my phone, but the Mail Icon will occasionally show new mail. Shouldn't this setting prevent new mail?


3G, iPhone OS 3.1.3

    If you have Manually selected under Fetch at Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars > Fetch New Data, the email account (if the email account does not support Push access for received messages) should not be automatically checked for new messages in the background.

    With Manually selected, the email account or accounts should not be checked for new messages unless you launch the Mail application.

    'Fetch New Data' cannot be set to OFF. Push can be set to off, but if you have Push off and still have an interval chosen for Fetch, mail will be checked. If you set Push to OFF and Fetch to Manual, that's as close to off as it gets. Mail will still be checked as soon as you tap the Mail app icon, though.

    Very good, thanks.

    I now have Push to OFF & Fetch to Manually.

    same here - in settings, push is off, fetch is manual, but it still checks for email. I don't like that! i'm careful not to touch the mail icon.

    My iPhone is doing the same thing. Push is set to "off", and Fetch is set to "manually". I even went into advanced settings and turned both of my email accounts to "manual" and I am still getting emails showing up from my Yahoo account.
