    I have a Samsung S10e; here's what I'd like an android email app to be able to do:

    I'd like to be able to set a time interval for the app to contact the server to download new emails.
    I'd like to be able to manually cause the app to contact the server to download new emails.
    I'd like to be able to create folders and move emails from one folder to another.
    I'd like to be able to erase any or all of the emails located on the android device without erasing the matching emails that are on the server.

    Any suggestions about which app would be most suited for me?

    A pithy answer, but perhaps a bit unclear. Could you elucidate a bit further? "Not one" because there are no good email apps? "Not one" because the question is too stupid to deign to answer? "Not one" because you've never used an email app and therefore you don't have an opinion?

    Have a look at Aqua Mail. It has a setting for just about anything. As for the last request: I think the only way you could delete local copies of mail and not affect the server version would be to set up your email account as POP3 rather than IMAP and have the client download the email and leave the original on the server.. Then any future local action wouldn't affect the server version.

    Have a look at K9 mail, in conjunction with Tasker.
    Not one was my initial answer because it will take 2 apps independently to do what you are looking for

    An app came out last year, open source, and I couldn't give it a higher recommendation. It's called Fair Email, and I believe it does all of the things you're looking for. I need a client that does reply-to and bcc by default which amazingly isn't all that common features anymore, I found that Fair Email had a really extensive feature set beyond that, including integrating seamlessly with Open Keychain. No ads, but there is a small area that asks you to purchase it if you like it, hardly noticeable. I did buy it, I have no problem supporting good software. It's in the playstore if you're interested.
