    Default HTC One Mail App has no option for shrinking content to fit the screen, and no widget.

    Hi, can anybody please help to suggest any tweak or I miss any option. I'm the heavy email user, and being able to see the entire mail shrinking to fit the screen is a huge time saving for me that I don't have to scroll left or right to see the content of mail. I find no option for HTC mail app. Yes it does have this feature within Gmail app, but I'm not using Gmail only. Btw Samsung Galaxy S4 Mail app has this feature option including the widget that can display mail by each account or all mail of each account. Your comment is much appreciated.

    Sorry, the stock email app is anemic at best. It helps though if you turn your phone sideways.

    Turn into landscape?

    Maybe pictures will tell thousand words.
    I've uploaded 5 pictures:
    _ One is Samsung Galaxy S4 widget. The best I could say. You could scroll through list of emails smoothly. Touch the header to switch to each email account. The widget use up one page of home screen. Just swipe the screen to see list of new emails arrived. It's quick and convenient way using emails. Touch the message to launch the mail app and see the entire content that shrink to fit the screen in a glance plus without always touching to show images on each mail message (this setting is missing in htc One also).
    _ 4 other pictures are the comparison of two messages in portrait and landscape mode with the most zoom in with htc One and shrink to fit with Samsung Galaxy S4.

    My daily driver phone is the htc One. HTC should not miss this feature in it's latest model. Is there any way to request this feature to htc? I love to see the update of htc mail app in the next 4.2.2 update.

    Email is so important in today daily communication, and email with the phone require just the right quick and convenience way of using with the small hand size screen.

    Maybe other third party mail client in Play Store can do better???

    Somebody has any comment? It's always appreciated.

    I'd suggest using a 3rd party application for emails if you're not happy with the stock one, because no, the options you're looking for aren't available.

    Here are some good alternatives:

    5 Excellent Email Apps For Android, Compared

    Check out the last three. I myself have used K-9 Mail once and it wasn't bad, but I always use the stock email as my default one anyway because I don't need to shrink my emails.

    One of my concern is about security since I'm throwing all of my email accounts into one third party mail app if I'm using it. Is there any security?

    There are security risks involved in ANY mail client you use, even the default one, and that's a gamble you have to take. All of the ones listed, though, claim to provide maximum security possible. I'd contact the developers if you're concerned about this, maybe they'll give you a better insight as to what security protocols and systems they adopt and such.

    Touchdown is what we have to use for work email... Our IT department demands it.

    This is one thing I noticed as soon as I configured my account in the One. At least the double-tap to zoom in on content works well.

    It would be nice to have the default email client updated with a proper "fit all content" feature.

    I run an IT department and this is what we ask people to use as well, it's great for Exchange. That said I use Enhanced Email. It works with Exchange 2010, Gmail, iCloud, standard IMAP and POP (haven't tested this one) and it can auto configure them all from entering an email address.

    The older HTC OneX phone has an email widget for exchange emails. Is it possible to put the APK file on the newer HTC One so I can use the widget?

    I'm so bummed that HTC removed so many of my favorite widgets in sense 5

    Has the new 4.2.2 update made any difference to this issue ?
