    Im using K-9 mail and it is working ok with gmail and my email at work but im looking for something with a nicer UI. What are you currently using and what do you recommend?

    btw, in sweden we cant buy apps in Market so it has to be a free one

    Seems to be a bit of a shortage of email clients for Android still. I use K-9 Mail as it seems the best. Latest update on Market seems to have improved navigation and it all flows a bit better now.

    Why do you use anything other than the default app? It's all i've used so far and it seems to do everything I might need..

    I used the Gmail app for about ten minutes - hated it. Never got on with Googles stars and labels and so on, I am a "file it in folders in Outlook" kinda guy. Tried the other standard Mail app and found it to be very basic - couldn't delete more than one email at a time, couldn't send attachments other than photos, etc. This was on Android 1.5, may be different now. But then found K-9 and it just works so much more like a proper desktop email client that I have stuck with it.

    The email client in the Desire's a bit flakey IMHO....

    I've just a mail while on my PC and a few mins later it came through on my phone.

    Whilst I could read it okay on the PC..the same email was showing up as totally blank on the phone (and before you wonder - no, there wasn't the option to download the rest of the email...) - it was just a blank email showing the sender and that's it.(pressing Menu and all other arrows etc didn't help either..)

    On another account I've got set up on the phone, it doesn't show attachments that I KNOW are on the mail (coz I've opened them up on the PC later/earlier on in the day....

    Must be a better alternative methinks :(

    I use Gmail and Touchdown for my Exchange mails. Tried to use K9 but gave up getting it to work. Touchdown doesn't have the nicest UI, but it is the first time I've ever been truly satisfied with the handling of my Exchange emails (particularly subfolders), and I come from E Series Nokia devices. Recommended.

    Hi Kendoji,

    do you have access to the "GAL / Global Adressbook" of Exchange Server?
    I don't, just have access to the contact which I have in my local profile.

    I use the Gmail app. I have a Google Apps account, and the Gmail app on the phone is absolutely perfect for my needs. If I could find a way to disable the automatic push, that would be great though.

    Hi, on k9 go to settings in accounts, you can choose to download only 24 hours, and not 3 days

    I used K9 forever but the swipe to next/last email feature is too sensitive on my G1. If you're trying to view an html message with scrolling bars you have to slowly touch the screen or it loads another message. I emailed the developer to see if there was a way to disable it but I never heard back. I've gone back to the basic client for now. I'll see how K9 performs on the EVO in a few weeks here. It does seem like there should be more clients on the market, though.

    I use the built-in Gmail app but wish it had the ability to make the fonts larger, too hard to read! The HTC app let's you do this but it is not push and sucks the battery dry. Any good apps that have both? Larger fonts and push?
