    Just picked up this phone yesterday. Now I own a iPhone 7 Plus 256 GB and this phone. On my iPhone I used AirMail for my companies SMTP Mail accounts. What's the best program for Android? Right now I have Boxer. It's nice but for some reason it doesn't show mail notification numbers on the icon like the messages icon and default ma program did.

    OEM launchers that support unread count badges often don't support a whole lot of apps -- typically just the manufacturer's own apps, as well as the more common ones like Facebook and LinkedIn. If you install a 3rd party launcher (like Nova Launcher, along with their companion app TeslaUnread), you have more control over which apps show unread count badges.

    And with Nova you can backup the settings in the cloud/locally, too...

    I had airmail as well. I run the action launcher and Gmail as the app. Didn't like the Samsung stock app. I'm also running the Google keyboard which helps me type much better. Didn't like the stock Samsung keyboard. To hard to type on. I also swapped out the messaging app for textra which allows me to send out all messages MMS so the iMessage recepients r happier with me because the text doesn't deliver it of order or all parsed out.

    I'm using Textra and SwiftKey for my keyboard. Does the default mail app support many IMAP connections? I know in Gmail directly online you can only add around 5 extra accounts!

    For email, I have been using Aqua Mail. Have been since my first Android device, my S4 back in 2013.

    Careful with that one - they apparently store your credentials on some 3rd party server

    Just finished setting up Novalauncher Prime. Looks really good. Any extra battery drain not using the stock UI?

    I had similar when using gmail.
    I'm ok with the stock launcher so decided to use the Samsung Stock email app and now have my multiple email accounts through that.
    This way I have the Notification Badges.

    Go to the App Manager, then Menu and Show System. Is there an app called Google Contacts Sync? If so, select it, tap Storage, then Clear Cache/Clear Data.

    If you don't see an app by that name, then go to Settings>Accounts-Google, select your account, and see if there is a Sync Error listed under Contacts. See what happens if you turn off sync for Contacts, then turn it back on again.

    I've never seen any significant change in battery usage with Nova.

    Have Gmail pick up your SMTP mail from the server and use Google Inbox as your client. Another benefit is having mail available on an IMAP server for access from multiple clients.

    They limit accounts to 5 I think. I need more than 5. I used to use Gmail to check my mail but needed more accounts.

    Don't know if it's still the case but when i used nova before it was actually better on battery life than stock samsung's UI , might have changed now but i can't say ( quite happy with stock UI + themes atm)

    You can forward email Frome​ an unlimited number of accounts to one Gmail. Or set up an unlimited number of Gmail accounts.
