    I tried to do this but it only seems to let you add Google accounts. I was hoping to add my work email to it.

    Which email client? If the inbuilt one doesn't do what you want, what about a 3rd party one?

    Though to be honest I've no experience with this, so can't give any real advice. I only use a low-traffic personal gmail on my phone - my work accounts receive several hundred mails/day, and I'm not having that on my phone.

    What type of mail system is it (pop, imap, exchange,...)? I'd think that most if not all should be able to handle the first two, but not all handle the third.

    I'm personally using Kaiten, which is a paid extension of K9, but as noted only use it with a Gmail anyway (both Kaiten and K9 say they support Exchange, if that is what you need).

    There isn't a built-in one for dGB, there's an APK if you want it. K9 does the job for me.

    Various apps including the email one can be downloaded from the dGB site here Index of /rootsu/rootSU/app

    Copy to your sd & install from there.

    HI Mac,

    I have the HTC Desire (2.2) and use pop3 with my e-mail account at blueyonder.co.uk. I have no technical knowledge to help you, but it can obviously be done. Hope this helps - keep searching - try Blueyonder ?
