The stock email client does not auto fill a previously used email address. I've tried searching but this isn't something developers highlight in their description. Anyone know of a clean, intuitive client that does this?

Gmail can be setup to check 3rd party pop3/SMTP addresses.

I'll Google it, thanks.
You set it up though the browser interface not though the mobile phone app. I use it to check my email address i get from my ISP. The only downside is that you can't get it to manually check the 3rd party email unless you delve though the settings on the webinterface, the frequency it checks it depends on how busy the email address is.

I am becoming a big fan of Blue Mail. Supports just about every email providers, design is nice, supports swiping gestures, and its free.

Blue Mail.

Yeah if im reading this right, the stock email doesnt provide links to go to the site. Dont like that. BlueMail does and you can ste it up with the many choices it gives you.

Back when I was using Android, I found the email app to be the weakest link and the major reason why I jumped back to iOS. I wish the stock apps would be tightened up and improved.

Maybe they have since I last used them but that was my impression

You mean that the inability to attach files to email or save attachment the main reason you switched back?

Yea this was a sticking point for me moving to android.

Real attachment support.
Indeed, I still can't believe Apple won't do this and it's bad enough for personal use but very annoying when used for work. What about when you want to attach a file to an existing email thread?

That's right it can't be done...

^ indeed my friend

For those that are using bluemail, I'm having issues with only some emails not auto sizing to prevent the need for horizontal scrolling. When I pull the emails in question up in the stock gmail app, they auto size correctly.

Fwiw, I have sync set to 30 days in blue mail, along with autodownload set to 200kb (maybe the fact that there is no option to auto download the entire message is the root of the problem)

I was actually having the same issue with the stock android mail app for my work exchange account. The nine app appears to correctly auto size every time :) very pleased with nine, too bad it doesn't fully support gmail.


I love the unified inbox of bluemail , but I hate scrolling left and right / resizing!

No the inability to access my work email in the stock apps, I had to go and buy an email app just to get my emails. :rolleyes:

What's wrong with Google's own stock 4.4 email app (rather than GMAIL app) ?

It can be side loaded easily and is certainly one of the best apps for email on android devices.

I enjoy it very much and was using it for my work exchange account.

After reading about Nine, I switched to it for my exchange account because
-exchange policies can be set to lockdown the app rather than the phone (yay!)
-it more reliably auto sizes HTML emails to fit the screen (hasn't failed me yet, where the stock app will on certain emails)
-doesn't look bad like touchdown :p

I do still like the stock app though :)

I went back to using the gmail app for my gmail accounts due to bluemail not reliably auto sizing either.
