There may be situations where you'd like to stop receiving email from one of your email accounts. For example, maybe you're on vacation and don't want to receive business-related messages. The following tip temporarily disables the account on your iOS device. The account still receives incoming messages; however, they don't show up on your device. Here's how to temporarily disable your account on your device:
- Open Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars.
- Under Accounts, tap on the account you want to disable.
- Toggle Mail OFF. (If you are disabling an IMAP or POP account, tap or slide Account to OFF.)
