    Hi all,

    I'm trying to understand the email database.

    Here is why I am asking the question.

    Our phones came with 2 email apps, one just called email (I'm assuming its from Samsung) and the second is GMail (no surprise, its from Google).

    I use email, and pretty much have gotten used to it, even though it is not full featured .

    Back to my question.

    Do both of these apps read and write to the same database?

    I know if we are using IMAP the data is really in the cloud.

    But for all those pop clients, are they the same database.

    Here is what I want to do: I want to install the powerful email client K9.

    And because I'm do so used to the regular email client that I just mentioned.

    I want to use K9 for features I need, but normally would like to just continue using plain old email.

    If the read and write to the same database, then I could go back and forth between both email clients .

    So are they using the same database, and would I be able to switch back and forth?

    No they don't one is to register as you already know to with Google and purchased from Android Market the other is whatever other email account you designate it whether it's in my case Yahoo or AOL, even though those email services have their own app. What I did was deleted the regular email since it was receiving all my Yahoo and replaced withe the Yahoo app but I also have of course Comcast and Verizon apps in addition to Gmail.
