This is a great question. Does the NC allow for logging on and off of your email? In the account settings under "outgoing settings" there is a box checked that says require sign-in, but I am never asked to sign in, nor do I see a place to do that.
This is just through the email app, btw.
Hopefully someone can help me.
I cannot turn off/lof off/sign out of my email since the new update.
I have tried restarting the NC and have also tried turning off the Wifi connection.
When the email APP is selected it still opens up my email account and shows the last 25 emails.
I want to disable this because I often let my friend use my NookColor but don't want her having access to my emails.
Thanks for any help you can give.
Did I mention i LOVE my NookColor!
I don't have my NC in front of me right now so I might be talking out of my butt...
BUT...most e-mail clients have a save password option in the incoming and outgoing server options. Did you check there? Most e-mail clients automatically assume that you want to remain "logged in" if you have save password checked.
Well, I said I wasn't going to download the update for awhile; but curiosity got the best of me and I did. I too, noticed that you cannot sign out of your email account. Someone earlier said they were going to try signing out on their PC to see if that works. I tried it. It doesn't work. Hopefully B&N will correct this problem with a patch or download. I agree that we should let them know. But let's not be rude or snide about it. A phone call or email, explaining the problem and asking nicely for help will be met with more of a positive attitude. Just my opinion.
The new email APP works much better than the old way i was accessing my account-which used to "hang up" all the time. however the privacy issue is a major concern and i will write B&N a polite email and ask them to address the issue.
Thanks for this thread, I think I'll wait to try this feature as well. My concern would be not so much privacy as kid-proofing. I downloaded a lot of "kid" apps for my preschooler to play on an upcoming roadtrip, but he just LOVES pressing that little "n" button, and my luck would have him somehow land in my email and start deleting or forwarding things at random.
I wrote to B&N and expressed my concern.
They emailed me back and verified that at this time there is NO way to sign out of the email. But they have forwarded this concern to tech help/developers.
Crossing fingers and hoping a fix comes soon,
