    In iOS 10 I'm only seeing a single global setting, that applies to every account, to be able to specify the Fetch time.

    For some reason in previous iOS verions I remember being able to specify different times per account.

    Did I remember this correctly and iOS 10 no longer allows this? Or did I just remember incorrectly?

    I dont have a non-ios 10 device around but my memory confers with yours. I think you used to be able to set Fetch intervals per account. Now it seems you can't.

    Fairly certain it was a global time at least in iOS 9 (but I think even before). You simply chose between Push, Fetch, or Manual on a per-account basis, but the Fetch timing was the same for all that used Fetch.

    I don't remember it being other than global - I know because I didn't want to fetch very often for one account but found only the global setting - at leas as far back as I remember

    Interesting. I dispensed with any Fetch accounts (Google, after they ditched Activeysnc) some time ago so indeed my memory is probably faulty.
