    Is there a difference in storage/memory used between the native iPhone email client and an outside app? And about how much memory/storage are we talking for an average email account that doesn't have many emails involving graphics/pics?

    I have a couple hundred emails across 3 different emails accounts. Very little media in my mail. I have 4 different mail apps on the phone:

    Gmail (just 1 email account signed in): 147mb
    Outlook (all 3 email accounts signed in): 129mb
    Spark (all 3 email accounts signed in): 60mb
    Mail (all 3 email accounts signed in): 40mb

    Thanks, that should be helpful with the math.

    I'm really trying to see how much storage an email account with the iPhone client uses and it appears that as long as there isn't a raft of pics it's not very much.
