Thread: Any way to disable the native MAIL app?

  1. #1
    Default Any way to disable the native MAIL app?
    I use mbox mail since I have a live e-mail account. I'm wondering if there is any way to stop the native MAIL app on coming up and running in the background. When I check my processes I always see it there. I delete it and it still comes back. I don't even have any e-mail accounts set up in there. I disabled fetch new data and push as well.

    Any ideas?

    no one? =(

    Yes. But it would be safer if you download iFile and navigate to Mail.app click edit and choose te mail.app folder and back it up as a zip file then delete it (Just in case anything goes wrong)

    I used iFile and just moved the mail.app out of that folder into a different folder via cut/paste link. Looks like it's fine. Thanks guys.
