Android Mail App

2 posts in this topic

Posted

Hi,

On my old HTC Desire, I used the standard Mail app that came with the phone to connect to my Company Exchange Server.

I presume this mail app was part of HTC Sense.

I now have a Nexus4, and am using the standard Android Mail app.

I prefer the HTC one, but can live with most of the differences.

However, the main problem I have with the android mail app is that there appears to be no concept of peak / offpeak hours when sync'ing mail.

I would prefer to be able to receive my email via push updates during office hours, but only receive them manually outside of those hours.

(Otherwise, I end up checking work emails in the evenings and at weekends.... and working on them :( )

Firstly, is anyone aware of how this can be achieved using the standard Android mail app?

If not, is there a good alternative that will connect to an MS Exchange server, and allow different sync'ing option based on the time of day?

Thank you for your help

The best Exchange email client, by far, is Touchdown. It can do everything you're looking for, and a whole lot more. I've been using it for several years now, and couldn't imagine going back to the native client again. NitroDesk (the vendor) provides excellent support. The product is enhanced actively (they just brought out versions for iOS and Windows Phone), and they're quite responsive to enhancement requests. Many large organizations allow only Touchdown to connect to their Exchange systems from Android, because it offers much better support for enterprise email security policies. One of the few Android apps that's worth every penny!
