    Is there a mail client that will allow me to check multiple online accounts and view the megs but leave them in the mail boxes so that I can download them to my main pc when I get home? Only had the desire a couple of days and just loving it at the moment, the freedom to txt with a keyboard, heaven!

    I think that's about the newest (stable) thing you'll find.
    How did you root you magic? Tried one set of instructions but didn't get far.

    The standard mail client will do it, just make sure its set to leave mail on server

    See here for problems with standard client reliability

    Gmail has never failed once but there is an up to 40 min delay in receiving emails.

    It seems you can't have your cake and eat it with email on Desire

    I've found the best Email app for Android is K-9 Mail. It's free and supports lots of features with push and poll options. Nothing to lose by giving it a go

    Hi Craig
    You've mentioned before about k-9 - but what does it do for you better/nicer/easier than Google Mail

    And does it have a fault that you don't like?

    (Just don't want to spend time re-setting email accounts settings if there's no real gain )

    regards

    Gmail is nice on the Nexus, but the default client for IMAP/POP is a bit basic and an all-or-nothing approach when it comes to the many folders I have on the school Zimbra server.

    In K-9 there are settings for display, push and poll for 'classes' of folders, which you define. You can set the class for individual folders so only the 'important' ones are shown and sync'd

    This is just on the Nexus though - I don't know for certain if there is a different app on the HTC-branded devices. If I was only bothered about my inbox folder and wasn't fussed about others, the default app would probably suffice.

    I tried K-9 recently based on the recommendations here. It crashed 3 times in a couple of hours, and despite uninstalling it 4 days ago, I still got an alert from it on my phone today saying it couldn't synchronise... check the program list to check I wasn't going crazy and I had indeed removed it. WTF?

    Well I'm due for a phone upgrade in July - I must admit that the HTC Desire is coming out on top for me - especially with so many others recommending it. But I have to ask the stupid question... I currently have a Nokia 5800 XpressMusic. I'm assuming there will be *some* way to transfer my contacts and such to the Desire and that it has some kind of PC-based software suite that means I can back up the phone to PC etc.

    But the list of Apps for Android are... impressive. I've always used Symbian phones, so this - if I go for it - will be my first Android.

    I synced my Nokia to Outlook using Nokia PC Suite, and then from Outlook to my Dell Streak, using the software that came with the phone. I don't know if the HTC phones come with similar sync software as the Streak software was Dell-branded.

    I synced my HTC Desire with google contacts, mail and Outlook on my PC - literally took 2 mins, most of which was time taken by me checking I was pressing the right buttons.

    Good question... I wrote it down on a piece of paper for such an occasion, tell you when I find it :-)

    Just got the email app up and running on my Desire, what are the 'Download options' for? or am I just being Monday morning stupid? And where do I tell it to just show me what emails there are and not download them from the server so I can download them on to my PC at home? Don't know if its doing that by default?
