    Hello All,

    I sure hope someone can help.

    I am new to the G2, and have been a Blackberry user for the last five years, which I always justified because of my business use and needs from my device.

    I was told the android system, and the G2, was a good business choice for an upgrade from a blackberry, but now I'm starting to wonder if I should have stuck with a Blackberry.

    Can anyone point me in the direction of a good email app or program that will work on the G2? I just experienced the embarrassment of going to business meeting with fellow associates and some clients, where all were watching, as some of my latest email communication from my new G2 (as well as other peoples) where being presented to a large group of people on a slide show for all to see, and as far as mine go from my G2, it looked like a moron had written the emails...........My mistake for not first reviewing my email on a large monitor, but was in a pinch for time, and was trusting the G2 email app.

    This is kinda embarrassing for the G2, and the android OS, to have a native email program that is reminiscent of early 1980's technology. Yeah, that's how bad it is.

    Here's what I'm looking for and what's needed, (btw was basic to all blackberrys).

    > > > Need something that will allow the G2 user to compose an email where the user can choose from a good selection of different fonts, and choose several different sizes of fonts, at a minimum. > > > So that when someone receives it on a standard office monitor, it doesn't look like it was composed by someone who knows nothing about good communication... ..... maybe a stand alone Application made for Android? preferably something compatible with POP and/or IMAP ? but please no suggestions for some Web-Mail in any form.

    Is that asking too much LG/Android, geez? .... If Blackberry was able to do it, shouldn't Android at a minimum be able to produce something equally as good for business users of their product?

    Who in business wants to receive an email from the native email application that comes with the G2?...anyone.....anyone?

    Please help.......can anyone provide some options that will allow a business G2 user to compose basic, decent emails, that when received by someone who is reading them on basic office desktop monitors they don't look like something that originated in the early 1980's (when programmers where just figuring out how to create scalable fonts and providing basic communication options for email).

    ... ... ... there must be some good business options out there for all G2 users that are in business, and that care about how their email communication comes across to the receiver.

    Sorry for the rant, but my brief initial search at Google Play has turned up crap.

    I'm sure I can't be alone on this issue.

    Thanks all in advance. Any help is greatly appreciated. :)


    kind regards,

    TahoeRunner

    You apparently want to be able to compose mail in HTML. Check out Maildroid. It should be able to do anything you need. There's other good mail clients such as Aquamail, K9, Enhanced Email etc but Maildroid is probably the closest thing to a Swiss Army knife of Android email.

    Hello Crashdamage,

    Thank you so much for your suggestions to me for a good email app on my new G2. You're a life saver.

    I'm starting to really like my new G2, however still working on the apparent learning curve with me switching from the Blackberry to the Android system, but people such as yourself help make a big difference.

    I'll check out your suggestions.


    with much gratitude,

    TahoeRunner

    Would using one of the mail programs you mentioned above solve my problem of not being able to see recipients on emails that I receive? I use only exchange mail and I receive mail fine but I cant tell who is on the actual email because I see no way to show recipients? am I missing this option somewhere? Im knew to the whole droid but couldn't stand the iphone any longer and jumped ship. Any help would be appreciated.

    Sorry, but I've never used Exchange and never will so I can't help much with Exchange specific questions.

    so on your gmail or whatever you use, you can see all recipients on mail you received?

    I just use the standard basic email app included in vanilla Android on our Nexus devices, and with that I do see all recipients. Of course, the sender can hide them by using BCC.
