The pre-installed Android email client and Gmail app are great, but are there any
other reliable alternatives? Yes! Discover your best Android email app!
Android device comes with some pre-installed email app. This is usually
Google Gmail app and some email app for other accounts which you can access by
clicking "Mail," "E-mail" or "Mailbox" depending
on the manufacturer of your Android device.
The beauty of Android is that you
don't have to stick to these default apps. There are many other great Android
email apps you can use if you like. On this page, you will discover a few best (in my opinion)
A word of
I use the pre-installed Gmail email app for my Gmail accounts (as this
is in my opinion the best Android email app en earth!) and use an alternative
one for other non-Gmail accounts.
In most reviews and rankings, K-9 Mail is at the top. This is not without a reason. What makes it so great?
This is an open-source 100% free app. Its main features include search, IMAP push e-mail, flagging, multi-folder sync, filling, signature, bbc-self, PGP, mail on SD, use of gestures and many more.
The app looks very simple but it fact is
highly customizable. You can edit fonts, colors, combine different e-mail boxes.
The only problem many users encounter is that K-9 Mail doesn't support most free Hotmail accounts.
This is also a very nice app. I tested the free version but there is also a Pro
version with additional features.
Its main features include the possibility of
saving/downloading attachments to SD, bulk tools, support of many mail
providers (including Yahoo, Hotmail, Aol, Gmail, GMX, FastMail and others),
status bar notifications, spell check, password protection, sleep mode and so
forth. In the free version, there are ads on the bottom of the screen.
This is in my opinion one of the best Android
email apps. I like it for its "looks" and reliability.

Enhanced Email is not a free app but it's certainly worth its price. The app has
many most useful features and is quite lightweight for the system. What's more
it's pleasing to the eye.
It's main features include custom font,
backup/restore accounts (together with settings), full e-mail search, sorting
emails in a variety of ways, auto BBC, copy/select
Even though the app has many different features, it seems simple and you
certainly won't feel overwhelmed by the number of options it offers.
Aqua Mail is quite a new app. I tested the free version. The app is nice to use and no
ads are displayed in it.
Its main features include automatic and very easy
setup for popular e-mail services (Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail and many others), push
e-mail, ability to save attachments on memory card, widgets. What's more, the app is simply pleasing to the eye.
All of these
four Android email apps are a great alternative to the default email app. Which one you choose is simply a matter of taste. None of these apps created any problems in tests.
