If I install a 3rd part app to manage something (say K-9 Mail), would it be wise to let the OS still run Gmail in the background constantly? Or does K-9 access that specific "app" in order to run. Basically, would it be wise to kill something I don't need? Or just let Android do it for me?

Nice Article, I will post it in the first post. I am not sure if the ins and outs of K-9. But I do know that you have to have a gmail account to use the phone. I don't know what would happen if you kill off the Google mail client. Only thing I could recommend is to give a shot and see....post the results if you do it ;-)
