    Is there a viable (read good) e-mail program to replace the default one?

    I've searched around a little but have not found any.

    thanks

    +1 for K-9 Mail - seems to do everything I need to do with an email app.

    Pardon my ignorance, what makes K-9 better than the stock email app? Better yet, why should I bother switching?

    I like Touchdown a lot. It is more stable than the stock one, I got force closes on the stock that deleted my account, which has never happened with Touchdown. The only negative I've found is that the widgets are not very pretty to look at.

    I have Touchdown too. Love it.
    Only problem it is an Exchange Server only solution.

    At my office I am on a Macintosh and use the Mail function for my e-mails. I have many folders within Mail, which I use to help me manage my e-mail flow. I am thinking about purchasing a Droid so I can have access to my e-mails while away from the office. But, I need to be able to access my e-mail folders to really make this purchase worth while. I understand that the Droid out of the box will not allow me access to my folders. I have been researching and I think Touchdown Exchange will allow me to access my e-mail folders. Can anyone here confirm this? Thanks.

    So long as the folders reside on the exchange server you can see them.
