    How many of you have used the K9 Mail for pop 3 accounts on the Droid? How does it compare to the native email app?

    I use it, love it. I can set different signatures for every account and that's important to me. I can set different notification tones for each account and that's a nice feature as well. It does everything that I need.

    Does it by any chance let you zoom in or change font size?

    Not that I know of but I haven't looked for it. The font size seems big enough for me, and I'm an over 40ish person.

    On some of my emails it does work well, some you have to play with, and some do not seem to work with zoom at all.

    I tried K-9 and it was almost as bad as the native POP3 client

    Better than native in my experience. Don't care for the doggie icon, but other than that, no complaints.

    Don't you have to turn off or uninstall the stock email app to use K9? If so, how do you turn off or uninstall that app.:confused:

    You do not have to uninstall the native app to use K9, just remove the accout to avoid double notification.

    I'm using K9 for hotmail, verizon and comcast w/no issues. Barbara created a Road Runner account, for testing and troubleshooting for another member here, and it was also issue free. You just have to configure all your folders for desired sync preferences. Some folders may not sync by default.

    Overall, its more stable and flexible than native app...just remember that you won't get a full blown mail app on a cell. At least not for free.
