    I've been using the stock email app for my work email. Just wondering what else others are using out there?

    For some reason it seems I can't type as well in it, like it doesn't auto correct as normal. Maybe it's me but it seems that way.

    Why not Gmail? I use that one to check all my other email too (Yahoo, corporate, etc). Push notifications, email alerts from selected labels, the whole bit. I haven't seen another email client that offers anything Gmail doesn't.

    Perhaps less compelling if you don't already use Gmail. LOL It's hard for me to consider switching because I've lived in Gmail as my primary environment for 10 years now. I have a couple dozen labels and hundreds of filters. Do any other email apps support those? Because stuff just piling up in an inbox is a no-go.

    That said, there are things I'd love to do that Gmail doesn't allow. I'd love much more formatting (even just italics would be great) and label management options. Do other apps to do that better? I'm really not so dedicated to Gmail that I'm not open to alternatives. Android is all about alternatives. :-)

    @metropolitim:
    You should check out AquaMail. It's very configurable, many options and should do everything you need. Loads of color options, dark themes, etc. IMHO the best general-purpose email client available. Fast, stable, secure, and well supported.

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d....kman.AquaMail

    K-9 and Maildroid are also good:

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...=com.maildroid

    I cannot recommend BlueMail or TypeMail due to serious security concerns. Please, see this for details:

    I've always stuck with the android app and GMail because, supposedly their Push protocol is less battery intensive than ActiveSync, and definitely better than periodic checks.

    Actually, the IMAP_IDLE command used for Push by most IMAP services is very easy on the battery, contrary to popular belief. Any of the Push systems is better than periodic checks.

    True, but then you have Contacts, Calendar, Tasks etc, which do not benefit from an IDLE feature in their protocol.

    But if you use Gmail contacts and stuff, they sync separately from email service, so it doesn't matter. Maybe I'm missing your point..

    Maybe it's my assumption, but multiple processes checking gmail would seem to use more battery than just 1.

    Thanks for this. I might switch over to Aquamail to see how it is.

    Are you saying that using the Gmail app is more efficient than using a separate app such as AquaMail or K-9? Configured equally, any difference would be miniscule, totally insignificant. I'd bet on AquaMail being the stingiest.

    Maybe it is apples to apples now, but when I was using the non native app a few years ago (moxier, k9, TouchDown) the consensus on many forums was that the native gmail app was much easier on the battery due to its proprietary push protocol. Maybe all the gmail compatible apps now use the same protocol.

    It's a common misconception that IDLE Push is a power hog. I believed it myself a few years ago. Totally untrue. If nothing else, I can say from my own experience that it's very power-friendly.

    Read the link below. If you want, I can look for some backup information. I think I might have some links saved. Not at my computer right now.

    Ok, I use Gmail for one of our apps accounts, then I have another account we use outlook on desktop and the native app for that one. Can you use Gmail for an email that isn't Google apps?

    Does you have to have an office 365 account to to use that or can you use with any email servers?

    You can use it with any email. I use Gmail and a work email with it.

    I use Nine for Exchange and the stock app for all others. I like Nine as it circumvents the exchange security settings allowing me to read and respond to emails on my Gear S. Just combine with G.N.E. to do so and all is great
