    Default Is it just me or is the native email app atrocious?

    Lots of problems with it. First, how do you get back to the main page if you got there via notifications?

    Pressing back just takes you back to the home screen. Incidentally I don't think that the back button should ever take you home. That's what the home button is for... But that's an android "problem" and not the app's fault.

    Does anybody have a good alternative app for non Gmail accounts? K9 still reign?

    I can honestly say that I never use the stock email app on any phone.

    I've been using K-9 for a long time now but recently switched to SolMail from the Play Store just to try something new and it's going pretty well so far.

    I don't mind it...but it does have its problems. The thing that is bugging me most about it is no LED notification for emails. Are you seeing them when you receive an email?

    yep - the LED notification is hard to see. i was blaming that on the phone though.
    it's very small and dim... i guess the screen sucks up all the juice ;-p

    So it doesn't come on for you either? I was just wondering if it is a defect.

    If it's an exchange account, try the one from Nine Folders. Very well done.

    Press the < next to the name at the top left. It will take you back.

    Nope. The only arrows at the top left when you get there via the notification bar cycle through messages. They don't take you back to the main screen.

    To the left of the email address at the top of the screen there is a < sign on mine. Pressing there takes me back from a message I pulled up via notification.

    That is different than mine. Don't see any setting to change the layout in mine. I'm on Verizon if that makes a difference.

    sprint. very strange. i really just assumed you had no idea what you were talking about, but you're absolutely right - yours is obviously working the way it's supposed to. why on earth would you not want to go back to the index of messages but rather have to manually scroll through all of them?
    definitely a bug.

    I would just like a widget that shows only unread email and a way to cut down on how much shows in the notification swipe down. I have out set tho subject only, which works in the app but not the widget.

    No problem. I figure the picture would explain what I meant better and show what I meant. Seeing your picture let me know that I was very different. The icons at the top on yours is on the bottom of mine. Definitely a different layout. Oh and it isn't a bug it is a "feature". LOL Like you I would assume that there would be some way of returning to the index, strange.

    I tried the stock email app for a day but I couldn't get used to it so I side loaded the Google Email app. So much better to me.

    I find the email apparently way better than what Samsung has to offer but yes its slow very slow at times but hopefully LG has this set for a fix in an update.
    Unfortunately no phone is perfect but this is probably the only issue I have with the G3.

    i hear you, and i know you're joking - but it has to be a bug because it operates differently depending on how you get there. i'm going to dump it and try one of the other options others mentioned here.

    thanks all!
