I want to control when I receive new mail in Mail for Exchange. Can I do this in Mail?

Yes. You can specify how often you want to receive new mail.

  1. In the Mail for Exchange (or Exchange ActiveSync) inbox, select Options > Settings and select the account.
  2. Select When to sync.
  3. Specify the sync days, peak start and end time, sync frequency for peak time, and off-peak time.
