    Hello all.
    I've been an android user for a few weeks now and have seen been trying to find an app to send and receive emails.
    The problem is that the ones I've tried have one or two of the features I need, but not all.
    Here's what I'm looking for, hoping someone knows of an app that does all three:
    - True push email for hotmail and yahoo accounts
    - Different notifications (led colors, ringtones...) for different email accounts
    - No ads. It can be paid for, I'd gladly pay for it but I hate ads in my apps.

    Any help finding an email app that complies with all three of the above would be greatly appreciated.

    Yahoo doesn't support push. General push comes from an exchange server account which hotmail and Gmail support but yahoo doesn't. I use enhanced email and forward my old yahoo account to gmail.

    I might be wrong, but I think yahoo does support push on its plus accunts.
    I read somewhere that maildroid users do have push yahoo, the problem with it its that it doesnt support separate notifications, at least for now.
    In addition, Ive had yahoo push for years on my blackberry.

    I to am looking for an email app that works. I was a WebOs user for many years I am really bummed at how bad Android email apps are.

    I actually am ok with the stock email app but it wont deliver gmail. I tried K-9 which works great with my gmail but it wont work with my work servier. Touchdown works with the work server but you cant add a gmail account. I guess I can use two different programs but that kind of sucks.

    Have you found anything? I just moved from Pre (Sprint) to Verizon to get a Galaxy S III and am having trouble with the built-in e-mail app. In particular, the built in app doesn't display text of some incoming e-mails.

    Also, the built-in e-mail app is missing some features I want:
    • Ability to reply from a different e-mail address than the one the e-mail was sent to.
    • Ability to have a different Reply-to address than the one sent from.
    • Auto Bcc to a different e-mail address than the one sending from.
    • Poll frequency for POP e-mail more frequent than every 15 minutes (different for each account).


    Does K-9, Enhanced E-mail, Touchdown or MailDroid have these features?
