If you return to the account settings you can modify the amount of time the mail will be kept or delete the account from your device.


Data usage

By default, the Fetch New Data option will be set to Push. This means email will update immediately, which also means it may use your data if you are not connected to wi-fi at the time. It is therefore recommended that Push be turned off and Manual selected.
