    So I just bought a Samsung Epic and have loved it until tonight. I use this phone for business so I have my business email account on this phone. I just got eight emails from clients about a half hour ago. Some that were sent at 1:30 this afternoon. Was there an email outage today?

    No the stock email sucks. I thought it worked at first but unless you check it, it takes a long time to push it to your phone. Only Gmail works on this phone, where you get you mail right away.

    Try K-9 Mail, available in the Market. It works really well.

    Edit: I am also using an Epic.

    K-9 rocks, but be sure to set it up correctly.

    Another option is maildroid (free in the market). I tried both K-9 and maildroid and I prefer the maildroid interface better. Cleaner look, IMO.

    Has either of them implemented pinch-zoom in the message view yet? That was a deal-breaker feature missing from both of them when I evaluated a few weeks back. K-9 also did not have the ability to select multiple messages at the time, which I do a lot to delete things.

    K-9 can definitely do multiple selections; in two ways, actually. Either enable the touch-friendly features and you can swipe-select, or menu->Select All can be used to select all messages in a given folder.

    Don't think it has pinch-zoom.

    Ah, OK, thanks for that, I may have missed the way to multi-select, but like I said, I've got to be able to zoom in and out a message view. Even buttons for incremental zoom would be livable, but pinch-zoom would be ideal.

    The latest K-9 says it has pinch to zoom in emails... available for free in the Market.

    If you have your email forwarded to gmail, the gmail client is push, so it should be pretty much instant. If you have gmail checking your work email, then the frequency is shown in Gmail. Go on gmail from your computer and select settings>accounts and imports and it will show you how often it was checked.
