    I would gladly pay "real money" for a real email program. I'm not talking $1.95, more like $20.00 to $40.00, and I bet thousands of other business users would do the same.

    I'm moving from a 2+ year old Blackberry Curve to the Sprint Epic 4G. I've spent the better part of the last 3 days trying to find a reliable email program that meets these criteria:

    1. Has spell check, preferably as-you-type
    2. Works with IMAP, GMail, Hotmail, Yahoo -- I'd settle for IMAP and GMail.
    3. Retrieves my email every 5 minutes or less (I'd like instant, like the BB, but I'd settle for reliable every 5 min.)
    4. Notifies me consistently of email received
    5. Easy copy/paste/edit, forward with/without attachments, reply with/without original text.

    So far I've tried the OEM email and Gmail apps, K9, and MailDroid along with Email Notifier. All fail in at least one of the above, most fail in all 5.

    Thinking of item 3, if a monthly fee is needed for a server to push all that mail I'd probably pay that too.

    Not sure if it would fit all of your needs, but I've heard awesome things about Touchdown.

    Thanks, I'll try anything once ;)

    BTW, so far MailDroid is working best for me. I've only tested one mailbox. Having some issues but still hopeful.

    GMail is a distant 2nd since there's no spell checker.

    Checked out Touchdown. Looks good except no spell check. Thanks again!

    Gambler, take a look at the sleep options under preferences. This will make push more acceptable.
