    Default Disable Gmail app?

    I'm new to Android and using the low-end T-Mobile Concord with Gingerbread 2.3

    The Email app freezes up, so I'm ignoring that.

    The Gmail app is fine, but I have several non-gmail accounts, and I'd like to have all my email in one client. So I downloaded Aquamail and it works fine.

    I disabled notifications on the Gmail app, but it keeps downloading updates of itself and resetting. It also has a duplicate set of my mail, taking up storage space, but if I delete data, etc., it starts downloading again.

    Is there anyway to delete or disable it and to keep it from wasting storage space?

    Welcome to Android Central! Unfortunately, the Disable feature was introduced starting with Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich). I don't think there's any way to disable system apps with Gingerbread.
