    Default Picked up a new Exchange mail client

    And I really like it; beats this lame Samdung mail client that is so laggy I wanna toss my phone against the wall. It's called Nine - Exchange Active Sync and it's brands new in Googleplay.



    It looks and feels much like the stock Gmail app, but it's not. It works on EAS only, not POP and not IMAP, but it's fast, simple and they are going to include Notes and Tasks at a later date for no additional cost. Today, it does e-mail and uses the stock calendar and contacts app. Blows Touchdown away at the current price of $9.99 (it's free for the 1st two weeks of usage). I loaded my EAS corporate account as well as my Hotmail and Outlook.com accounts.

    I give it a thumbs up and hope to see the updates from them; well worth the money!

    Thanks for the heads up. I can't use it until it supports tasks, but I'll keep an eye on it.

    What issues are you having with the Samsung Mail client? I use it constantly and have never run into any issues at all?

    It's nice looking, pretty similar to the ui of Gmail.

    I hope they consist lower the price, and add a dark mode though.

    Just found another one called myMail. Seems lack of configurations, but nice looking.

    You don't need it for tasks or notes, there a great free client called Exchange Notes and Tasks on Googleplay. Its what I use now. Samdung app... ever try hitting the reply button or the forward button and see how long it takes to actually switch screens? This is only when I'm in my corporate EAS account, not my IMAP accounts.

    The other major issue I have with the stupid native app is this:

    Using WiFi - I have a few site-to-site VPN's here from my home office to my corporate office with 4 local subnets. I'm on a Windows domain and there is a DC here with a private DNS server.

    One of the subnets traverses the VPN and it uses local, private DNS servers on each side of the VPN. It's how we connect to all servers and intranet sites and you can't join Windows domains unless your primary DNS is one of the Windows domain DNS servers. When I connect to that subnet, the Samdung mail client doesn't connect to my Exchange server.

    If I connect to the guest network on a different subnet, using public DNS servers, and NOT traversing the VPN, the Samdung app works. That's pretty useless for me, as I can't access our servers or intranets on that subnet, by design. With Touchdown and 9 Exchange Active Sync, it makes no difference at all how I connect; it works under all circumstances. This is a Samdung issue and you can bet they'd have no clue if I were to call them. They'll just tell me it's my network - ya right.

    Touchdown is highly configurable, almost to highly, but the UI is a huge fail and of such poor design it makes you wonder who built the app. It's completely disjunct and has no fluidity whatsoever.

    Yes, it works, but it's a horrible and unintuitive navigation experience. I had it for 2 weeks and dumped it; it was so unpleasant. I wouldn't install it for free, or even if they paid me; I hated it that much.

    I have no doubt, but for me, it doesn't mitigate the poor user experience. It's different for everyone.
