    Best Email App

    I am not on the stock ROM and what I liked about that was the fact the corporate email client would sync calander/contacts. I am currently using TouchDown, but wanted to see what other email apps out there you guys recommended that could sync calander/contacts.

    How is touchdown working for you? Sometimes the third party apps work better. For my calendar I just use the stock Google calendar, and I use Android Pro Widgets (for my calendar) more for looks than anything else. For email, I use Gmail, it syncs all my contacts so that when I flash a new rom I don't have to worry about losing any. What rom are you on (and phone lol)?

    I am on day 4 of the 30 day trial of Touchdown and it is working great, am very happy with the look and the feel of it. I have the Atrix MB860 and am running Beanstalk on it.

    Can you sync a corporate account with Gmail? I know it is one of the highest recommended in all my google searching (that and K9, but I use K9 for my personal mail and don't want the two to intertwine if I can help it.) But I also use Gmail to sync my contacts, 'cause like you said, switching to a new ROM or reverting to an old one, it's a simple click and you have all your contacts back.

    Good question. I know that Gmail has changed a bit to categorize mail, but I haven't had the time to check out the details yet. I would think you would have to import your contacts to your gmail, and I don't believe there is a way to seperate contacts (that I know of).

    It looks like the Google App Sync will sync up your contacts/calander onto the Google Apps Server but I haven't tried it. I am not sure though if this would allow you to "transfer" your corporate account to google either, meaning DO3274256@corporate.com when synced with gmail might become D03274256@gmail.com. I do not use google mail, so I do not know if you could create an alias or set up google mail to "show" that it was sent from D03274256@corporate.com.
