I setup the email app on my new iPad 2 and, unfortunately, linked it to my old gmail account, which has thousands of ancient emails. Now, the iPad (or iTunes sync) is trying to copy every *#@ing one of them into the ipad's limited storage. I have to stop this annoying automatic transfer and replace it with a simpler, manually? controlled, file transfer.
So, I am thinking of changing the iPad's email to a new account that would be used only as a gateway for moving useful files between iPad and Desktop storage.
Is this a good plan? Can I just uninstall the email app or are there ties to the iStore that will also have to be fixed? Or is there a better way to solve this problem?
