    Default Turn off email notifications at night?

    Just upgraded to ICS and really like it. One thing that I need to do is turn off my email notifications at night. I get spam email in the middle of the night and do not need to be woken up for that. I would like to be able to get text messages at night. With Gingerbread I was able to use Timeriffic to accomplish this. With ICS Timerific does not appear to work with this feature. Is there any way to turn off email notifications at night other than manually going into settings and doing this? Thanks

    Suggestion: Use SmartAction... turn off Background data... this will stop any emails, but still allow text messages... plus you can do a lot more if you want to including setting Ringer Volume and VIP calling.
    Current: HTC One (M8), Pebble, Chromecast
    Retired Device (in order): Samsung Galaxy S4, Droid Razr Maxx, HTC Thunderbolt, HTC myTouch 4G, Blackberry's Bold, 8900 (Curve)

    In timeriffic settings under experimental check that. In ICS apparently ringer volume and notification volume are tied together. That's why you see unsupported for notifications in timeriffic until you check the experimental feature. I had smart actions set to turn off background sync last night and it didn't work. I still got email and fb notifications. I started a thread about this. Tonight will find out if timeriffic works with the experimental checked. Hope so, hate getting woken up in the middle of the night.

    Is timeriffic better than SmartActions?

    For me right now it is. The smart action to disable background sync isn't working for me.

    Did the link mode in timerific work for you? My D4 just upgraded to ICS today and am curious about this. I don't want to get email notifications but need the ringer to work since I'm on call this week

    So far yes.

    If you use a calendar, your phone already has all the info it needs about when to mute itself - "lecture", "ball game", "family dinner" are all events which require different ringer volumes. Why not have that calendar automatically manage your volume? Here's an Android app that seamlessly does so:

    Eventador: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...arringervolume

    Eventador, also an Android app, hooks into your existing calendar, and seamlessly mutes (and restores!) your phone during selected events. No more duplicate events!

    I use Ringleader. I set up a night profile that sets all notifications to silent except for phone. Works like a charm.

    Llama can do this, or SmartActions. SmartActions are simpler to set up, but Llama is much more powerful. Also, Tasker can do it, but Tasker is an entire world to learn, so don't bother with it unless you want to automate LOTS of stuff and have time to learn it.

    I'd start with SmartActions, and if you find that you like it and want to do more stuff, get Llama. You'll like it!

    Hope this helps.
