    Welcome to Android Central! Are you using the Gmail app or the stock Email app?

    A surefire way of preventing automatic sync is to turn off Auto Sync. I'm not familiar with Samsung's interface in detail, but there may be a toggle in the Quick Settings. Otherwise, go to Settings>Data Usage, tap the menu button, and uncheck Auto-Sync. You should still be able to manually refresh email by swiping down.

    You actually put the app to update your emails everytime you open the app... Go to your sync settings and put the update interval to the time interval you want

    It should prevent all apps from auto syncing, although you can still manually sync from within each app.

    no its my ntl/virgin media accounts.
    the problem is even when i set the sync period to manual it ignores this and still lets the emails through randomly when i want to sync manually.

    I am guessing it depends on whether you set up a pop or an imap account and whether push or pull. Push may override scheduling?
    I know nothing.

    Give K -9 or Maildroid a shot to see if the problem still exists. If it does you know it has to do with the account. If it doesn't, you know it's a setting or bug with the app.
