    I really like K-9 mail app. It works great with my imap mail account. But can i put it on the launcher bar thing at the bottom of the screen instead of the current mail app?


    I am a captivate newbie.

    Thanks

    sure you can use K-9 as default mail app. if you're using gmail or outlook account to sync contacts, let those emails still be on the original email app. just set it up so that it doesn't check for new emails.

    thanks - Yes - but can I put it in the dock at the bottom of the screen and move the default app away?

    This is also outlined in the Captivate FAQ... perhaps you missed the forum sticky and many users signatures? ;)

    Get a new launcher like ADW and not only can you change all the apps there, you can add more than four as well as a second set.
