    Hi folks,

    I'm pretty sure that the answer to this one is going to be "no" however I'm going to ask anyway. Is there an alternate email app for the iPad? I find the stock version a little bit on the simplistic side and I have a few different accounts so I want to access them in one location.

    Any suggestions?

    Well, I would first suggest listing your needs for an e-mail program and your specific issues w/ the limitations of the built-in program for the iPad?

    The 'Mail' program is rather complete if you have thoroughly reviewed the options in the Apple user's guide for the device; multiple accounts can be retrieved and viewed separately or in a combined fashion.

    The eBook shown below goes more into these options than the Apple guide - it was a 'free' download for a while but is now about $5 on Amazon.

    Ah see now here's the forlorn hope that I have. I guess the comparison that I am looking for is Office Outlook. And I'm guessing if there was an App comparable in functionality as Outlook, I would have heard about it as I keep fairly up to date with new apps that come out.

    Well I don't know about the functionality but how about the Outlook Mail Pro app, it may just do what you need.

    I too have multiple e-mails, and the stock program does just fine giving me access to all of them. I have two yahoo addresses, one being used for e-newsletter subscriptions, and it allows me to have both yahoo e-mail addresses separately. Gmail is my primary e-mail for friends, but Gmail also allows me to pick up my Comcast e-mail that I use professionally, so I don't have Comcast configured there as I don't need to. So I have three accounts altogether and I pick up e-mail on all of them with no problem, and it actually is 4 e-mail addresses total.

    I have five accounts on my iPad consisting of one office Exchange account syncing mail, calendar and contacts, one personal gmail account, two Yahoo accounts, and a Cox account. All function flawlessly. One strength of the native email program is that a gmail account can be set up as an Exchange account, enabling push email. Unlike most platforms, you can have multiple Exchange accounts. As far as I can tell, there is no reason to use an alternative email client.

    I have a couple of gripes with the built-in email client;

    1. I Can't seem to find a "Delete All" for the Inbox. I receive 75-100 emails a day, so it would be a really nice feature.

    2. I have to hard reset the iPad sometimes to remove "No Sender, No Subject" e-mails that have no content and can't be deleted ( it must be a bug? ).

    Other than this, it ain't too bad. I have a googlemail account and two POP3 accounts and it manages them reasonably well otherwise.

    The default client refuses to retrieve certain emails from the IMAP account that I use it with, with no error given or apparent reason. Every other client does it just fine. So there's a reason that I need an alternative. Same with the stock browser which is unable to search in largish text documents without crashing to the desktop.

    I have 3 accounts and receive 76-100 emails a day. A friend on Android uses a client that has a unified inbox and allows "select all" and then delete.

    Are there any ipad email clients that have these features?
