In the end, the email program that came pre-installed in the A500 is totally a waste of time for many reasons but deleting messages / emptying trash is the most significant (one at a time is a time killer).. Since I have a Samsung tablet (unlike my wife's A500), the email program that came installed in it works just fine.. Are these email programs designed and installed by the different mfgs or are they off the shelf programs they decided to use.. In my case, I should have bought my wife the same tab I have (Samsung) so I could help her with it.. QUESTION.. is there anyway to get the email program that came installed in the Samsung 10.1 so I can put it in the A-500?.. As a last resort I will install K-9 in her tab but that means that I have to learn another system to keep her happy.. I am getting confused as it is having to operate and maintain phones, tabs, desktops and laptops with Android 2.2, Android ICS, Windows Vista, Windows 7. op systems.. .
