I have a question about email apps; if i use a email app (for example, maildroid) to check my 2 emails, will the independent gmail app be running as well? and wouldnt that waste battery life, keep in mind that you cant log out of gmail for some reason, i researched it already, any advice or thoughts?

All I did was disable notifications for the GMail app and I have K9 controlling notifications for my GMail account.

I think if you go to the app info for GMail, you might be able to disable it. Not sure though, you can double check.

Just go into accounts under Android's main settings and deselect syncing email under your Gmail account, if you don't want to use the Gmail app.
