kindle fire email - how to stop emil from synchronising

I don't want my Kindle email to sync with my exchange account, because it would use a large amount of my 8Gb storage. How can I prevent it from synchronising?

RE: kindle fire email - how to stop emil from synchronising

I am really disappointed. Since I posted my question, I contacted the amazon adviser who advised me that it cannot be done. So I then set up my email system using the web browser. It works a bit but not completely - I can read my emails but I cannot delete anything, and it is very haphazard about selecting particular messages (sometimes tapping on the rectangular box works but mostly it doesn't)
This is a double disappointment. I bought the Fire specifically because the specification said it could do emails and webbrowsing. Now I find that the email functionality is very limited, and also that UK Prime membership does not include access to videos only books.
I am definitely "off" Amazon!

When you set up your account, did you set it as POP3 or IMAP. Generally, if you use IMAP it won't download all mail to your fire, but keep them stored on the server.
