    Default Google Nexus 5 - What email app are you using on Nexus 5 Kitkat?

    So I'm slowly getting there, getting my whole life moved over from my iPhone 4 to the android and sure there are snags here and there (like missing voicemail notifications until power cycle).

    The latest snag is the stock email client. It seems kinda... meh... In fact it seems to be having an extremely hard time downloading image attachments from iphones? or maybe attachments in general?

    What email apps are you guys using for multiple POP3 accounts?

    Out of curiosity, what service are you using? Because depending on the service they may have a proprietary app. And most services offer at least imap if not exchange.

    But to answer your question, I use Gmail. I have all my other accounts forward there and I have it set up to send from Gmail as those addresses.

    I don't think I really know what EXCHANGE is all about but I have several websites that are my own sites/hosting accounts that come with pop3 mail server access and I use those. From what I've been reading the stock Kit Kat app may have a few bugs in it here and there that they are looking in to.

    Still waiting for my Nexus 5 but K-9 mail worked great on N4...I'm hoping it is compatible with 4.4.

    Maildroid is my favourite , working seamlessly on nexus 7 and nexus 5 . I was using mailbox on the iPhone and boomerang is the nearest to that on Android but prefer Maildroid for ease of use . I only use the free version as the tiny adverts at the bottom never see to get in the way .

    I've used AquaMail for a long time and really like it.

    I use exchange for my outlook.com account. Exchange is a way to sync and I find it to be the best for contacts, calendar and email. Exchange is a sync technology owned by Microsoft. Nearly all companies use it for email

    Well as I said I have multiple accounts and would love to be able to answer as SOnSO@whatever.com in one email and MEnME@whatever.org in another email rather than forward everything to GMail and then respond from the GMail account.

    I have to say that I an much happier with the stock email client in android 4.4 than I was with the nexus 4. The combined inbox used to suck since it didn't always work and you couldn't zoom out in html emails to see the whole email on one screen. Now that works!

    Still wish you didn't have to enable seeing the graphics by sender. There should just be a seeing to do it for ask emails.

    Anyways, I an happy with the improvements. Still not as good as email on my BlackBerry (since they still have more features) but better than before. If aquamail supported exchange active sync I would use that but it doesn't.

    And I don't use gmail and all my addresses (4 of them) are through Hotmail.

    The latest K-9 release, 4.8, was made specifically for KitKat and,for now, is only available on devices running 4.4. It works fine as far as I can tell.

    If your using live hotmail or outlook.com or a custom domain hosted by them try the free no adds version of outlook for android app by Microsoft. It will also sync your contacts and calander to the stock apps.

    Nice app and provides true push capability.

    Actually I went back to the stock email app once I figured out its bugs.

    For me it doesn't update when I read an email sometimes. I have to READ the email, then exit out to the ACCOUNT SELECTION screen then come back into that specific account and THEN it shows it as read. Probably just a small update/refresh bug.

    You can set up GMail to do just that. I have my personal & professional gmail addresses, along with my Live.com and Yahoo mail being sorted into gmail, and I can respond with any of them.

    I've gone from K9 to Kaiten and have now settled on AquaMail. It is my favorite of the three.

    I'm going to try some of these. I'm using K-9 right now because of problems with the stock app. K-9 was the only 3rd party email app I think I'd ever used. The stock email app was deleting all the emails from the server despite having it set to never do so. I'm using kitkat on N7 and N5. I had to disable app on both. I even uninstalled then re-installed to test it out. As soon as I re-installed the app and it ran sync, I lost the email on the server. I guess no one else is having this issue as I only read about Exchange server issues. I really liked the improvements in the stock app but can't live with that bug.

    I happen to like most of the new improvements in 4.4's email (on my new Nexus 5). I've tried K9 and others on past devices and each had one issue or another I didn't prefer.

    I guess my recommendation would be the stock app (admittedly I've had this phone for 2 days). In 4.4's email, its clean looking and fast, I'm not having any real issues (exchange 2010) EXCEPT.... there doesn't seem to be a "conversation" view that groups like messages together as it did on 4.2's email. This is infuriating as I'm part of 100, mulit-person emails conversations a day. Does anyone know how to fix this?

    I use the stock email client (hotmail, work exchange, and gmail), and also the gmail app.

    Are there any good email apps that also sync calendars? I keep having issues with the stock email app in 4.4, e.g., right now when a URL is embedded in a link (say from this forum), it is not hyperlinked so that I can simply press it and go to the web. I have to copy and paste the link into the browser, which is a pain. I don't recall changing any settings either so not sure why this is happening. I also have issues opening certain image types (e.g., tiff images) though this is likely not an email app issue but annoying none the less.

    But overall I find the stock email and calendar app a far cry from what I was used to with the BB Q10. The BB OS 10 "hub" (the OS in general) was astonishingly efficient and useful. Too bad the hardware wasn't very good and the app selection stunk. But there must be better apps out there. I've tried Aquamail (The free version) and K9, both have decent email interfaces but do not seem to permit syncing of calendars.

    I guess I could consider keeping the stock email app for my work email and calendar syncing purposes, then use one of these apps for actually viewing emails but not sure if that would reduce battery life at all. E.g., setup my work email on the stock 4.4 email app and have it sync calendars, then throw that app into the background and not use it but use something else to view all emails? Would doing this reduce battery life at all since now 2 email apps are both syncing the same emails?
