I've got a gmail account and I use the browser to read, write and manage my gmail account.

I wrongly opened Apple mail and it started synchronizing with gmail.

I would like to maintain google calendar synchronized with Apple Reminders, but I would like to free the space on HD used by Apple mail.

Is it possible?


Try system preferences -> Internet accounts -> uncheck mail from google account

  • Thanks Bart, do you think that this solution will clean disk space? – kiks73 Oct 4 '15 at 16:40
  • It will stop safari from downloading any more of your emails, but I am not sure if it deletes emails that have already been downloaded. You can check how big your mail folder is by going to finder -> holding alt/option, clicking on "Go" tab and open "Library" -> scroll down and look for "Mail" -> you can right click and get info to see how big the folder is. I found this link about deleting files from mail folder, but maybe do a bit of research just to be safe link . – Bart Oct 5 '15 at 0:08
