    You could try the GMail app?

    It really is very full-featured. You can forward all your mail to the GMail account, and GMail has an option where you can send mail from their servers but have it appear like it's being sent from a different email address. Like if you have a hotmail account, everyone receiving emails from you would still think they were getting them from that email address.

    I'm trying out something called k9 email, but that sounds good also. Thanks.

    The email app truly blows, in my opinion. And sadly the Gmail app isn't much better in certain ways. My issues are:

    - No way to select all messages at once. I mean really, why is this feature missing?? Happens on Gmail too.

    - When messages are deleted on the Email app, they go into the Trash but then are never purged from Trash. After checking 2 prolific accounts for 30 days, I had something like 180 messages in Trash. AND, thanks to no "Select All" option, I had to go through and manually select each and every message just to purge my Trash. Ridiculous.

    - From time to time, the last few messages in my Inbox (the oldest ones) appear to have a date of 12/31/69. What in the world??

    I'm curious to know if K9 works better with these issues, or if I will continue to be held hostage by the Android email app until a proper 3rd party one comes along. No fun.

    Hm- Gmail might help with the trash purging issue in that you can simply purge your trash from your desktop browser, and your GMail app will echo that.

    Not ideal I know-- but at least it's something if the trash bothers you, which I can understand.

    have you tried the the mobile gmail site? it almost seems like google is focusing more on making its web apps better than the native ones...

    For me, the email app doesn't work. It doesn't check my email. I have to manually refresh to get it. This is for my work IMAP email, which I don't want to have forwarded to gmail. It's very frustrating, as is the lack of a truly integrated inbox, the way my Blackberry had.

    Oh how I miss the days of having three email accounts in one inbox, with Facebook messages picked out and labeled with a Facebook icon, and which would launch the internal client. Now I have gmail, which works fine, no facebook integration (I just get the regular emails, it doesn't know or match them to the FB client) and my work email won't download on its own.

    I called them about this (Verizon) and they had me talk to a guy who told me to set up the account again. This caused it to work! For a day or two. Now, back to the same old. Anyone else have this happen?

    After setting up the native "Email" app I noticed deleting on the Droid did not result in the email disappearing from my Outlook client. Which worked fine with my Treo's native email client. This resulted in the email coming back to my Droid the next time it checked for messages. (flagging worked fine both directions)

    I then tried K-9 Mail. Pretty much the same except marking a flag on the Droid would not appear on the Out look client but marking through the outlook client would appear on the K-9 mail.

    Seriously. How hard is it to follow the IMAP protocol and make a freaking client?
