    So I've been using K9 for a few months now, and have been pretty happy with it, although sometimes it just won't update when I have new mail.

    Now with the Gmail app, is there a way to make the messages all pre-load, so that it doesn't take 5 seconds to load each message you click on? That is absolutely killing me. And that's really my only gripe with it.

    As far as the HTC Mail, I would probably use it, but I can't figure out a way to do multi-select of messages. If there is a way, please let me know.

    Ditched the HTC Mail til they fix the horrendous memory leak in Froyo. Also, it would remove messages from Gmail server.

    Am so far happy w/ K9.

    K9 while it doesn't update as well as HTC and GMail . it's hands down better, especially being able to copy and paste text from emails that's a big help. Plus I think the layout is just all around better.

    Anyone used Touchdown? is it worth the money?

    Touchdown is Corp Exchange only. I use Touchdown for work and K9 for home.......both are fantastic programs. Have never had a problem with K9 loading messages. I go the the site daily and always update to whatever release they are at.

    I haven't tried K9 or the HTC app. But i don't have this issue you speak of. Maybe mine aren't preloading, but the load times are not noticeable at all to me.

    For me Gmail does not handle nonGmail accounts (obviously), so I never even tried it. HTC had the same memory leak on my eris, so I moved to K9. Then I got the pure message widget, so I moved to K9 for pure. A version or two behind regular K9, but the widget makes up for that.

    I have my Gmail and my work email set up with K9 and I notice that my computer gets my work emails way before my phone (2-10minutes) and Gmail on my phone will get it before K9 by a few minutes also.

    Really I don't care , just stating that it's not as fast. And I have it set to update always

    I've never noticed a problem with K9 not updating, but I only use it for a POP3 account, not IMAP/Exchange. Don't use a task killer / Don't kill tasks.

    ***

    K9 has copy/paste, though I'm not sure how it compares to HTC's implementation. I use it in K9 all the time and it works fine.
