Default Exchange Email App for MAXX

What is everyone using for Exchange Email??

I am looking to set-up my work email on my MAXX, I tried the Email app but it seems to want to use more power/battery then my Gmail app with 3 accounts.

I dont get a bunch of email but would like to have access now that I can ( current company allows it for me). If I turn off the push notification where do I set the calendar/contact sync times/refresh?

Or is there a better app I should be checking out

K-9 Mail is always a good option. It's one of my go-to email apps.

Default Using the Email app

FWIW: I'm using the standard Email app for work exchange email with no issues. I'm using Automatic (Push) frequency without any issues -- thanks to the Maxx's absurdly huge battery. I had thought to restrict that to less frequently, but didn't notice any significant impact in a very informal test over a couple of days.

Yeah I used k-9 a long time ago. LOL

but it seems to only support exchange 2003/2007 going by this:

K-9 supports IMAP, POP3 and Exchange 2003/2007 (with WebDAV).

I am quite sure we are on 2010 and migrating to 2013

I still use K9 and wish, wish, wish they would support Exchange 2010.
Alas, they do not...

I'm using Touchdown, because I wanted better functionality, and I wanted to be able to sync my Exchange Tasks.

It is very good, but not perfect. Overall, I am pretty satisfied. AFAIK, it supports all versions of Exchange, since that's their bread and butter. We're on Exchange 2010, and it works well. There is a small issue with editing instances of Recurring Appointments, but hopefully they're working on that.

I have no idea how good or bad Touchdown is with power requirements. I've got a Razr Maxx, and one of the things I love about this phone is I DON'T HAVE TO BABY THE BATTERY!!!

Enhanced Email, although there is a bug on Android 4.2.2 where a phone reboot looses the accounts. The work around is to install Enhanced Email then back it up with My Backup Pro or Titanium, delete Enhanced Email and restore it then you are good. Has something to do with initial install files going to wrong location.
