Default Best exchange email app

Hi,
I'm new to android, just got an S3. The stock email app is OK but not great, looked at TouchDown but you can't configure notification sound on it (or can you?), looked at Moxier but it's a bit basic.
Thanks

Touchdown, for sure. Yes, you can configure a notification sound. Don't have my phone with me right now, but it's definitely in there. You can use any sound you want.

Thanks for the reply, I can't seem to see the setting anywhere. Unless it's not available in the trial version?

The format on the inbox summary screen is terrible - font is too large, black background / white text - can only see a few emails at a time. As opposed to touchdown which looks great in the inbox summary screen.

On the subject of Touchdown can anybody advise how to get the icon showing the number of unread messages - I see there's various widgets etc for it but all I want is an icon which shows number of unread messages - same as how the stock email icon works.

Thanks

Touchdown shows the number of unread messages in the icon for me. Pretty sure that I've never seen a setting to change that though.

Notification sound is in menu->settings->advanced->email alerts

No idea if that's in the trial version or not.

Hi Scotwis,

I'm also dissapointed with the stock email - compared to the HTC stock email, there's no ability (as far as I can find??) to browse sub-folders.

I've tried K-9 but it's complicated to set up, am browsing the web for instructions now. It is one of the most popular email apps on Android, but I'm not sure if it supports Microsoft Exchange Sync. Give it a go.

Thanks for your post

Exchange email on the android is terrible, I'm really looking for an app that can do it better. (I used to use iPhone, which had excellent exchange/AD support built in)

Specifically, I want to be able to search messages on the server, I want it to autocomplete addresses from the GAL, I want emails that have been read on the phone to show up read in Outlook (and vice-versa), and I want to look up contact details from the Global Address List (GAL)

Mine actually took 10% of my used battery, which I thought was quite high for Push email in peak time and 4 hour off peak. This was one exchange account. 3% Client 7% exchange service. This same account, 100% on my old phone didn't even really register on the battery scale. 2% if that.

Touchdown is pretty good but still has quirks. Better than stock email using exchange though. The bottom line is the iphone handles exchange email perfectly, android has some way to go.
Has anybody tried anything other than stock email and touchdown for exchange email - maybe there's something great out there?

Touchdown is the best I've seen on Android, I've been using it for two years on my Nexus One. If there's anything better on Android I'd love to see it.

Exchange support on the iPhone is pretty good, but Touchdown supports a lot more native Exchange functionality, such as forwarding calendar invitations, out-of-office auto replies, server-side searching, remote wipe, etc.

I have Touchdown on my X and when I swap phones I'll install it on this one. My main gripe about the native exchange app (based on what I see on my E4GT) is not being able to delete an email without opening it.

HA! Takes a little finesse, but yes, it works! I also found a "delete" option in the menu, if you select it it puts check boxes up beside each email. Once you check the ones you want gone and hit delete, the boxes go away again. I might can live with that, but wish the boxes (and th eoption to delete) were persistent.

All, I am in the same boat with the Droid RAZR. What's really making me nuts is that I can only seem to connect to Exchange with the default android Email client (might be a Moto app...not sure). I've tried Enhanced Mail, Touchdown, and a couple of others (all with defined Exchange support) and my corp server rejects them when it tries to register.

Anyone else seen this?

How, exactly does one go about this? Seems helpful.

I have purchased and used Touchdown for myself and my other users. I have yet to install it on the S3 since I haven't found any fault with the stock version and I love the home grown widgets that work with it. Touchdown has a LONG way to go in the widget department before they catch up with Touchwiz. I can say that they have the best customer service of any Andriod vendor that I have come across.

Having serious and seriously annoying issues with native exchange app on my GS3. First of all, I'm connected to my work exchange server and had no issues with the GN and HTC OX previously.

My inbox randomly deletes all 1000 or so emails then proceeds to download all of the back right afterwards. WTF??? Anyone else seen this and any ideas how to stop it from happening? It seems to happen after a reboot which is rath inconvenient since I reboot about 2-8 times per week getting off and on planes.

Also I have issues with emails getting stuck indefinitely in my outbox and sometimes I don't realize for a couple days. This also happened with my galaxy nexus so I suspect it's an android issue.

Regardless the inbox purge and reload is killing my battery! Any help is appreciated!

Thought I might jump back on here as I started this thread.
Have now been using Touchdown for a month or so. It's definitely the best non-stock exchange app I've found (unless anybody can still recommend better?!). Its widgets are terrible though, and the scroll jumping when reading longer emails is very annoying.
The main advantage with Touchdown over stock though is not having to lock the entire phone with a pin - our exchange policy forces pin lock on devices. Touchdown only required the pin when opening the app rather than locking the whole phone down.

Does anybody know if there's a workaround when using the stock email app to remove the force pin lock on the phone (you can do this on iphone with jailbreak apps). If this could be done I'd go back to the stock email app as overall it's better than Touchdown until Touchdown sort out their widgets etc!

Thanks

On mine Addresses do Auto-complete.
...and emails read on the phone do show up read in Outlook & vice-versa (just tried it as I started to doubt my own memory!)

Good point about the global address book...lucky I have a Blackberry, too! (It's a work BB, personal S3).

Thanks for that, hadn't heard of it. Just installed it and it's pretty good. However there's two annoyances with it:
1.. Colours aren't changeable - hard to see the white on black on the email summary
2.. To/CC are hidden when reading an email - need to tap the top bar to see them every time - these are essential parts of reading any email.

I guess it's a toss up between the annoyances of touchdown and Moxier as to which one to go with. Unless there's still better ones out there?

Cheers

Anyone found a better email client? The stock Samsung is junk with the huge fonts (can only see 4-5 emails in the list). Can't see the recipients on any email (have to click the drop down above, which is a huge pain every time).

It has to be Samsung with this problem because my RAZR had a great looking native email app. RAZR had great widgets too for email.

Your absolutly correct. The stock email client for Samsumg is pure junk. Stock ICS, HTC Sense on the X1 and the Motorola Razr phones all have a superior Exchange client.

You can't do server side searches, searching the GAL is flakey (it suddenly stopped working until I rebooted) and I get a ton of connection errors (which would explain the GAL search stopping working)

The fact the the S3 is the first Samsung device that is SAFE certified for enterprise use is ab absolute joke.

I've used Touchdown and it's pretty powerfull. As mentioned in other posts, the widgets are not the best and the UI is not great either, but it does do a good job with exchange.

Personaly, I'm not going to stick with a phone that doesn't have good integrated exchange supporrt so I'm returning the S3 for an HTC X1 (which has excellent exchange support)

I too am using the stock email account and find it not as user friendly as the Iphone, I am new to the droid market but I use exchange for work and I am also having issues with emails only coming through with a couple lines and not the whole email and also the security function on my phone is disabled and I must have a pin number in order to unlock the device but this is only when I install exchange on it with the stock app?? Anyone else have any probs like this?

I like enhanced email. Does this trick, uses the built ins for calendar and addressbook, removes security requirements.

Email app is OK, does the job

I use the official Hotmail App and it is 10x better than stock.....so if you are a user of hotmail (I have an original msn.com account) then I'd check it out. Also syncs the calendar and contacts well.

I have a Touchdown license from back with my Droid X and decided to give it a try. No issues so far and much better than the stock email client from Samsung.

After I deleted my exchange account, it deleted all of my work calendar from the stock calendar widget. Is there a way to sync touchdown with the stock calendar?

How did you move your license? I have one from DX but can't find it to move it to the S3.

N/M, just realized the license email came to a different account than the one I was looking for it on! All good!

On a related note, has anyone tried to set an AOL account? Mine is struggling, not happy about that. Won't synch, and had a hard time even getting it to reach the servers to set it up. This is on the stock app.

It's simple actually. You just put the phone on "Modem Mode" (under the WiFi settings) and turn it upside down on top of the Matthew-Broderick-in-WarGames dial up modem.....

A few short minutes later you'll be AOL-ing at a swift 28,800 Baud

To answer my own question, it doesnt look like you can sync the TD calendar with the phone calendar. Luckily I have purchased Pure Calendar and it syncs with Touchdown.

yeah i would like to have the same thing. are you using touchwiz or some other launcher? i have launcher pro and cannot get the notifications. though i will recommend installing executive assistant and it will put the unread emails on your lock screen (along with upcoming calendar events, missed calls, and missed text messages). i have the free version and not sure why anyone would pay for the full version, unless it's a timed trial which i do not think it is. still, can someone chime in on how to set up the notifications on the icons? either we are the only ones that can't get them or others are lying...

as for touchdown i will probably buy it. my biggest gripe with the stock exchange program is that my company requires admin privileges and an 8-digit PIN that you have to enter every time you unlock your phone. it can timeout for a max of 30 minutes before you have to re-enter. at least with touchdown you only need it when you log in to touchdown only, and my company does not get admin privileges.

I can't believe Samsung is letting these out for Enterprise user's email. The email interface is like something I would expect on a Nook or a tablet you buy on the home shopping network. Not a flagship device to compete with the iphone.

Touchdown would be great if their widgets were better (and even then, i have to pay extra for it).

Haven't tried the others yet.

I've tried K-9 but it's complicated to set up, am browsing the web for instructions now. It is one of the most popular email apps on Android, but I'm not sure if it supports Microsoft Exchange Sync. Give it a go.

Thanks for your post
You can browse the subfolders in the stock email. At the top of the screen where it says inbox, click on that and it shows which accounts are linked and at the bottom says show all folders. When you select show all folders, it lists the folders out.

The one thing I like about Samsung's Exchange client is the ability to view shared folders on my companies network w/o VPN. (Menu button -> Documents) For example, entering "\\myworkstation\share" and I see all the files on that drive, even outside the company's WiFi network.

Is stock Android's client that much better? It seemed pretty much the same to me. Maybe the font's are smaller, that's all I noticed.

The client on my Droid X would remove the notification icon from the phone and stop the LED flash if I read mail on my PC - something stock JB (CM10) and TouchWiz don't do.

I want to use Touchdown because I can't open any attachments on the stock app, but everytime I have installed and synced Touchdown it pulls over my calendar but no e-mail whatsoever. Says it is syncing Inbox but the Inbox screen is blank. Has anyone had this happen?

Also whenever Touchdown is open it syncs over and over continuously. Some kind of server loop maybe?

Default contacts

Does anyone have an issue with contacts not showing up right? What I mean is, can you get rid of the default contacts that comes with Droid and make TD the point of record for contacts. Right now if I try and add a contact the contact app takes over and also it will not add to my touchdown which is on exchange. If anyone has solved this or can tell me what I am doing wrong I would appreciate it.

Well... ONLY if the folders are at the "root" level of the Inbox in my experience. Any sub-folder of Inbox won't show.

I am using Enhanced Email which is better than Touchdown(single account only) and Stock JB Email(Security PIN requirements - not that I don't mind just like the option to disable).

Folders are to the right of each account. Multiple Exchange Accounts with Notification bubble on unread emails, customized colors for unread and read emails, White/Black theme only(who cares - I use black). Ability to choose font sizes. I choose small fonts to get a lot of emails on the screen of my Nexus 4 and still readable. No Notes obviously. Sync Calendars and Contacts is there.

I am happy with the client. I have TouchDown and Moxier Mail and they are not worth the money for Multiple Exchange Accounts or even for the Single Exchange Account for that matter. I have a license and I don't use it. Enhanced Email is like the CM 10 Email client. Customized colors, etc.

Need to correct myself! Just noticed that you can tap on the Inbox folder and it will expand.

With the native ICS e-mail client, if you have an exchange account with rules to receive certain e-mails to vertain sub-folder, you will not get notification when new mail airrives in those sub-folders. it only notifies you for the "Inbox". Furthermore, the search on server is not optimal and mails are limited to only 30 days.

Try going to manual configuration and verify that you have the same server name defined. Check the SSL settings too.This has been true on all my email clients. I find that the automatic sensing does not work with my companies settings. Finally contact your corporate IT support. They may not have everything setup for this or are actively blocking it.
