Hi !
I'm experimenting some imap email program for Froyo 2.2

I don't understad which version comes with the JJR9.
The "vanilla" install shows two imap client: Gmail and "email".
Is the "email" app the "improved email" app found on appbrain ?

How does it compare with "improved email " ?

Stock android (and JJ) comes with both email and gmail. GMail only handles gmail accounts, mail can add whatever. Improved Email just sounds like a 3rd party mail client. If you're asking which is better, it's just down to personal preference.
I use Seven, it's a non-market beta app you have to sign up for.

"Email" is for POP3 emails (not sure if it supports SMTP too) while "gmail" is online for gmail mail accounts

So it seems that JJR9 comes with the stock imap Email client.

I checked in the shops other android phone, and all seems to use the same app.

I can ensure that E-mail app manage IMAP --and-- POP3. I personally use it for one of my account; I use also K9 for another IMAP account.

I checked on many sites, and the improved_email seems a gratis program, very well known and suggested.

But I cannot understand the benefit over the stock Email program....

Improved Email at one time was the better choice because stock email had a security bug with Exchange. Latest stock email app works fine with Exchange. Improved email also has a homescreen widget that can display number of unread emails, stock email does not. LauncherPro has a feature for displaying unread email in the drawer, but this is only for Gmail not the stock email app. I always remove gmail.apk from all the roms because the stock email app can do pop3, IMAP and Exchange so gmail seems superfluous.
