    On my AT&T/s7/6.0.1 my stock email app is using battery and data even though sync is turned off. There is an exchange account on the device, but it is just there to get my contacts to make phone calls.
    See pics for details...

    I'm at a loss. Any ideas?

    Check the if you can find a newer build for the app.
    May there's a leak / bug that causes battery drain even though the sync is disabled.

    My advice: disable if possible or remove your account.
    Get another like Gmail (my favourite).

    For future reference... I removed the exchange account and added it back in. I also remove every permission from the stock app. That seems to resolve the issue.
    Plus, over the weekend, nougat was pushed out. That has made a monster of a difference in battery life on my s7.
