    Some folks here introduced me to this app a few years ago but I never used it because I switched to an iPhone (lol) but now I'm back with a Nexus 5 and wanted to know what was the best mail app amongst users besides the stock email app (or the stock gmail app-I don't use gmail so I don't care about that app.)

    Thanks

    I do use K-9 Mail as it works best for me, but there are plenty of mail applications out there.

    Mailbox is another client that recently made its way into the Play Store. As mentioned above, there are more options now then when there was a few years ago.

    I use AquaMail as it allows me to turn off the smart / unified box. For some reason I have getting erroneous counts with Nova Launcher and the icon badges when using the stock Nexus 5 email client.

    I still use the default email app, as many of the others don't do my email address correctly (I want it to look like it was sent and have the reply to address be different from the address it's actually using).

    I heard about mailbox but apparently it only works with Gmail or icloud email accounts. I use Yahoo.

    I switched from the default e-mail app to K9 because it's Pebble compatible. However the Pebble interferes with Bluetooth phone calls so I've stopped using it as anything other than a watch. I'm happy with K9 so I haven't swithched back but I don't find it any better that the default e-mail app.

    How did you setup the default email client to do that? I was under the impression that the default email client could not support email aliases.

    Thanks,

    If you need to sync with a coprporate Exchange account, consider Touchdown HD https://play.google.com/store/apps/d....honey.nitroid

    Yes, it is expensive (after the 30 day free trial), but the functionality is 95% of what you get with Outlook. Calendars, Tasks, server-based address books, Notes, Reminders, everything.

    Plus it limits any Exchange Device policies your workplace enforces (i.e. requiring the phone be password protected, ability to remotely wipe the device, etc.) to the one app instead of the entire phone. For example, if you are required to have a lockscreen password by your company, you will need to enter a password to enter Touchdown, but you can still use the lockscreen security method of your choice. If your company sends the comand to wipe your phone, it only wipes what is contained in Touchdown (which is where all your corperate everything will be) instead of wiping the whole phone.

    I use Nine for my Exchange account at work. Touchdown's UI is terrible, in my opinion. Nine does everything I need, including conversation view, and the interface is beautiful. I highly recommend it.

    Create a new account, name it the email address you want it to be seen as, and then fix the login info to the email address you actually are using. It will send emails as "Sent on behalf of" (it used to not do this till my Nexus 5) and the reply email address will be the account name.

    If you don't set it up exactly that way, it won't work.

    There are definitely better alternatives now. CloudMagic, Gusto mail and others.

    Touchdown does not handle shared calendars & rooms. The rest is OK.

    I'll give this one a look. Agreed on touchdown--it's looked the same for years.

    I use Enhanced Email. Haven't found any issues with it and you can adjust pretty much everything. They were just bought by Boxer not too long ago and are working together to push out a new app.

    Okay, I decided to give Nine a try and have to admit I like the user interface. I would prefer that it maintained its own calendar (like Touchdown) rather than blending my Exchange calendar into my personal calendar, but that is a personal preference which others may not share.

    Touchdown also supports syncing of Tasks and Notes; Nine does not currently do so however the developer's web site says, "(Please note that Tasks and Notes will be supported in the near future.)" so we shall see.

    Of course, whether this has anything to do with the original poster's issue...
