In the early versions of Android the native Email app has had its fair share of bugs and issues. We wrote a post on this site a little over a year ago that encouraged users to bypass the Android Email app and run all of their pop3 email accounts through Gmail. Since that post was published we have graduated from Android 1.6 all the way to Android 2.2 and I’m happy to say that I’m much more satisfied and impressed with the native Email app that comes installed by default on your phone.
This new email app also supports Microsoft Exchange email accounts. In the past you would have purchased one of several expensive email apps in order to sync with your company’s Exchange/Outlook system but that is no longer necessary.
It is as easy as ever to setup multiple POP3 accounts. You can manually set the sync intervals and notifications do arrive properly. This also makes it easier to control which of your email addresses appears in outgoing email that you compose from your phone. Thank you to Android for making this a priority.
