Hi, how do I turn off auto checking for emails? I want it to check only when I tell it to.

Open Settings, scroll down to Mail and activate it.
Double-tap Accounts.
Scroll down to "Fetch New Mail" and turn it off.

Thank you. Can I also turn off threaded view? Do you know the keyboard command to check for new mail when I want to have it check?

Threaded View is one of the configurable options in the main Mail page. Open Settings and activate Mail. It's about halfway down that screen.

I don't know any of the keyboard commands for Mail. I use the touch screen.
