    How to stop Gmail from downloading attachments automatically when using Wi-Fi?

    When my android phone is connected to Wi-Fi it automatically downloads attachments from the Gmail. It will be stored in my phone and is available to use later. But this application which works on the background consumes my phone’s resource and battery life. How to fix this problem?
