    Hi there,
    I have a SG S4 i9505 and would like to know how to stop push notifications.
    I have gmail, yahoo and outlook as email programs that are the main problem. I couldn't find anything in the settings.

    Thanks for your help

    Cheers,

    Maxy

    as far as i know, the "push" feature can not be stopped removed on those native apps. most people love "push" as it is a killer feature. you might be able to use a third party email app which allows you to select "polling" intervals for each account instead of instant "push". perhaps K9?

    why don't you want "push"?

    I like the apps I'm using I just don't want push on my phone when i have a laptop and a tablet that's pretty much always with me that i check mail on. I like to send mail from my phone if it has to be done in a hurry otherwise I check and respond on my other devices.

    I use llama (tasker will work too)... You can control when you want sync. While I'm at work i have my phone sync Gmail for 1 minute every 90 minutes. Or you can disable sync in settings?

    Go to the settings menu, select the account you want changed, select sync schedule. You have a setting for peak and non peak. Default for exchange is push. If you don't want any, select manual. Otherwise pick a frequency.

    Maybe you could explain exactly where these settings are.

    I think you will find they no longer exist if they did at all.

    The settings are listed for the default Samsung email app. They work perfectly to push or not to. They are located in the app itself, so open the app, then hit the settings... If such settings didn't exist, how would you add or remove mailing addresses?
    Gmail app also has similar settings. In fact, all mail apps should have similar settings.

    I hope that helps

    Only thing I've been unable to find in these settings is 'Push'? I have one gmail account and two others. Maybe it comes up if you disable sun and re-enable it? As of know I select Sync schedule only?

    In the Gmail app, yes. Check sync if you want push. Uncheck it if you don't want push.

    In the Samsung app (far better, and can show you multiple accounts at once) you can leave sync checked and then just change the synchronization schedule... Manual is off or will only push when asked to.

    Ah thanks for that. I'm using the Samsung App and already have the schedule set up which i assumed was a fetch arrangement. I do prefer the Samsung app to the gmail one i must admit.

    I solved it by going to Settings<My device<sound and notifications<application notifications. Then just tapping on the apps I want to stop and blocking them.
