MailDroid can also be found on the google market (it was moved from slideme at version one, but still lives on both sites). I am fairly responsive to users who email me (and who post in forums). I am biased, so I won't compare. However, both K9 and MailDroid are good programs. I personally have not used seven and mainly have just heard that the client was just "ok". MailDroid was written from the ground up since I also had problems with K9 which was built on top of the stock client. Having said that, K9 is a solid email client for many people.
I look forward to any feedback that you may have.

I want a mail client that will show unread count, that can also understand folders (or as gmail calls them - labels). Either a list of all my folders with unread count..
Or just have the labels with unread (don't show labels/folders that have no unread). I don't want to have to select "Folders," I should get a list of all folders initially, then I can choose which want I want to drill into.
Make any sense?
I like the looks of Maildroid, and it seems to work pretty good. I would pay for a no advertising version. It certainly looks better (to me) than anything else I've looked at (7, k9 gmail and sense).

I just set up my MailDroid and it has a much better feel than K-9 to me. I too and coming from a BB Storm and this seems to be the closest to BIS we can get on Droid. I still miss my BBM, but maybe Cnectd will catch on and get better.

Would like to see ability to select a signature. I like how, in K9, I can set a default signature for each account but select an alternate if desired. I'd be OK with a single default for all of MailDroid with the ability to select alternates. I use some of my accounts in different contexts, using a different signature for each context.

I gave up K-9. Malldroid is working much better. It actually syncs my yahoo and hotmail over wifi. alot easier to work with too. There are some improvements that need to made on MallDroid, but it is still better than K-9 in my opinion. I think it is the closest to BIS on the Droid right now.

I take back everything positive I said about railroad, this app is garbage. Im not sure if its supposed to be impossible to navigate around within an email but it definitely is. Also the settings area is lacking. Time to find a new app.

I've used K-9 on my Moto Droid for many months now. It handles POP great!
Unfortunately, it falls short with IMAP. I cannot get the changes from my phone to sync to the server. The changes from my desktop always sync fine and the changes appear on my phone. But when I read, delete, flag, etc. on my phone, the changes do not appear on my desktop. In fact, when I read a message, the next sync it shows as unread again. Only after I read it on my computer does it show as read on the phone.
But, I do like the signatures, folders, ease of use of K-9. I like being able to select multiple messages from the inbox and and the ability to purge deleted e-mails. It would be nice to have "select all" function for other mail boxes.
I may try Maildroid. The inconsistent IMAP coordination is getting annoying. My main account is IMAP and I get tired or re-deleting e-mails on my computer that were read and discarded on my phone.
K-9 is still way better than the stock application. But the quirks are getting tiresome.Droid Bionic
