    I just cannot stand the gmail app which I have to use for work and personal. I can deal with personal gmail but I cannot for work with the group conversations they do so large and take so long to open and crash and crash and crash when they are too large.

    Please help... what is the best alt? I tried to use sammy stock app but I cannot get that to setup with my corp email. I also tried boomerang but didnt like that [no calendar function] and i couldnt find a way to ungroup the conversations.

    Any advice is greatly appreciated.

    If it's for a Gmail/Google Apps account, there's really not much better. For Exchange, I recommend Nine.

    Gmail app and Inbox are pretty solid apps for just Gmail use.

    If you're using Exchange, the stock app isn't terrible. I haven't used K9 in a few years, but it used to be a really solid app. I hear great things about Touchdown, but I have never personally used it.

    I don't either. It looks good but it's functionality is horrid. I don't know about you but on mine, if I slide to delete, it stays there until I touch another email. And when I do that, it opens that email. So I have to back out and do it again. It's a real PAIN!

    The best overall email app for multiple accounts is Aquamail.

    Huh? Inbox is a Google app. Designed to run gmail accounts.

    i loaded it and it said right there its not for use with google apps [which is sync for outlook that my company uses] they recently dropped using exchange.

    i did find an app called aqua mail which doesnt group the conversation which is helping me. i like that alot! not sure if its a good solution yet but its working ok so far.

    I too can't stand Gmail and the default Exchange app.

    The best that I've found is MailWise.

    Responds quickly, easy to change accounts and delete or move mail, and it does a nice job grouping email and stripping out all the clutter you may not need to see.

    I have nine accounts including one Gmail account and love MailDroid. It's bulletproof. Rock solid. Expensive, but there's a free version to try it out with reduced features.

    I'll chime in with Blue Mail as well. It works well and looks like it can handle any kind of email server, so I don't think your work email would be a problem for it.

    I also like Aqua mail the best of the ones I have used. I like that all my mail accounts will show up in one inbox and the many ways to customize it. I did pay for the upgrade.

    +1 to aquamail. One of the few that will mail to groups created in Google contacts.. Gmail doesn't even do this as of yet..

    It's a little hard to find because Aquamail let's you have different signatures per each email account.
    Open Aquamail>Long press on the account name (for example: ...@gmail.com)>Composing and Sending>Signature>Add your signature
    (I believe this is only available on the paid version of AquaMail.)
