Whenever I have a internet connection, my settings app shows that something is syncing. If i look in transfers, there is a big number of failed transfers listed (all with an e-mail icon). I dont have the e-mail app installed, i have 2 e-mail accounts registered, though.

Only way to do that from user interface is by either disabling the email accounts (for what you want them without email app, btw ?) or by installing email app and then in Settings->Apps->Email disable the scheduled sync.

Unfortunately that does not work. I have the e-mail application installed and automatic sync disabled and still my transfer screen is full of failed transfers. I checked the journal and according to the time the event happens, this could be Mitäkuuluu (maybe when no connection is possible)? Would this be shown as e-mail syncs? @qqK: Do you have Mitäkuuluu installed?

@Jörg - Don't know about Mitäkuuluu, but I doubt that, did you modified your email account settings via the command line ?

@VDVsx: Nope, no modifications via command line. I deleted my transfers a couple of hours ago and so far no failed transfers have appeared. As soon as they appear again, I'll check my journal and try to give you more details. BTW: I had this "problem" already in the previous firmware version.

I had the email app installed and sync deactivated, then uninstalled it to see if the transfers would stop - well, they didnt. I have Mitäkuuluu, it might be, that the problem began after the update to v0.1-23

Can't reproduce such behaviour, if I turn off sync in the settings nothing syncs after that.

Still can't understand why you need email accounts without email app :)
