You are running two email applications. From your screenshot the one with the big "N" is the Gmail appliction the other is from the HTC Email application, called email. You can remove your account from either, or disable the whole application if that suits better. To remove the account from HTC Email. Press the "Application Menu" button at the bottom ...

YES, you can delete the stock Email (Email.apk) and stock Calendar (Calendar.apk, CalendarProvider.apk) app. For a list of other apps you can delete on CyanogenMod, see the expandable list at the bottom of the CM wiki. I'm not so sure for AOSP though.

The stock email application and many other I've tested present a list of 25 emails per page. The user can however load older emails on demand. This is done due to two main reasons: to prevent large transfers of data that end up using the device communication thus leading to a faster battery drain; to preserve memory consumption that in turn would leave ...

DISCLAIMER: This is based on the stock email app on a Samsung Galaxy S4. If you click on an email quickly, it opens that email. If you long-press on an email, it selects that email without opening it. Then if you click another email, it also selects that. Now, you have two selected emails. You can then click the delete button to delete both emails.

What's even worse is that it's not just a combined view; the text messages are actually inserted into your Inbox, so your private text messages sync back to your corporate email account, so they show up in Outlook on your PC, and they're available for your company's Exchange administrators to snoop on! It's probably the most annoying anti-feature I ...

Just an update to the solution for Android 5.1: you may have to deactivate auto sync before selecting the exchange account to be able to access the settings where you can remove it. Otherwise it kept kicking me back to the "accept/cancel" notification and not allowing access to alter the settings. Auto sync is a checkbox option in the "..." menu on the ...

You can't, the Gmail client for Android only syncs the Inbox folder. The other folders are only synced when you enter into each one. If I'm not mistaken the K9 Mail client have the ability to sync more than one folder. EDIT to add some new information provided by "Mr. Buster": The current version of Gmail client for Android phones actualy have this option....

I finally gave up on the stock email client for Android 4.0 because of this problem and others. Now I use Enhanced Email and I love it. Its screen-real-estate-efficient UI is based on the Gingerbread client and the dev team is very responsive to user suggestions and feedback. And it doesn't kill battery life like Touchdown.

Summary of comments, as requested by the OP: If your device is running Android 4.x, you can simply go to Settings → Applications → Manage Applications, scroll to the app, oben its entry, and hit the "Disable" button -- et voila, it's "gone", and will no longer appear in any other place. If you need it again at a later point, it will still be at ...

If you have root you can do as suggested and use Titanium Backup to remove the stock email app. If you aren't rooted you can remove the duplicate notification by going into the stock email app, settings, and then delete your email account from the app. If you want to keep your account you can also go into your phone settings and find the application ...

It's in the settings for your Exchange account, hidden rather well. Go to: Settings Accounts Exchange Settings Select your Exchange account More Settings Uncheck "Sync SMS"

No. Inbox is a very different application that was opened to the public in early 2015. It's primarily designed around the idea that your inbox is like a to-do list of sorts. The project's website explains this in more detail. The "Android" email application is no longer developed by Google in any meaningful capacity, aside from ensuring that new platform ...

There are standards for this, as in the XLIST command for IMAP, which has recently been superseded by the Special-Use extension of the IMAP LIST command. Gmail supports these, and Fastmail, and mail clients like Thunderbird and Opera, and even Outlook 2013 apparently. The problem with the Android Mail app (at least for me) is that it doesn't understand these ...

K-9 Mail allows to choose the "from" mail address when composing a message (or replying to a received message). Click the "from" address field and a pop-up menu will appear which allows you to choose the appropriate account. K-9 supports pop/imap/exchange(via webdav) accounts. Pictures for illustration compose window: account chooser:

Probably a bit late to the party, but I'm recording this here for posterity. My wife's Xperia Z5 Compact (Android 5.?), as well as my own Samsung S3 (4.3) suffer from this same problem. I've pulled down the source code to the most recent email client, and it appears that the only authentication mechanisms that the native email client supports is PLAIN, ...

The behavior you described is what I'd expect from an account that uses both IMAP and POP protocols. Your emails are deleted from the server when you open Outlook and sync over POP but when you sync your phone over IMAP it keeps the mails on the server. You can get the desired behavior by switching your outlook sync protocol to IMAP. This keeps the emails ...

I think there is no need to set those settings in the Email app. You only need to set them in e-mail clients where you are getting duplicate copies of the email, provided those clients have a way of setting those settings. If you notice in the image below (from the desktop GMail web app), there is a Sent Mail and an [Imap]/Sent folder. The Sent Mail folder ...

This depends upon the ROM that you're using. If its stock, you're stuck, for most OEMs don't allow sending big reports as such. If its a google device, or any other device running AOSP, then, the link you've posted is appropriate. Be sure to provide as much related and useful info as possible. If you're running custom ROMs, they'd often provide you with ...

I had exaclty the same problem. I use Sony Xperia Z with Jelly Bean 4.3 The solution that worked for me is like this: 1. Stop contact autosync of google account. 2. Clear all data and cache of Contact Storage App. After this Email app will not autocomplete with Gmail contacts. The drawback is that the native Gmail App will not autocomplete either. In ...

The email accounts are saved in the the file accounts.db under /data/system/users/<userId>/. If you're the primary user, then the userId should be 0. You can also consider taking the accounts' backup using Titanium Backup. Offline contacts are handled by Contacts Storage (com.android.providers.contacts) app and the contacts are stored in its data ...

There are another one or two topics on this over at XDA-developers, and I haven't been able to find a solution or cause for the problem. I suggest you use the Gmail app, because it has great support for Emails that are "non-google". The most obvious (however I could be wrong) answer to this is a bug in the Samsung Email app (But if you're on Lollipop you ...

I ended up deleting the account and re-adding it. Space used by Email went from 2.7Gb to 16Mb. On my Moto X, running Android 4.4.4, Delete the account from System settings (i.e., not in the Email app) -- under Settings, in the "Accounts" section, find the account with the Email app's icon and name that matches the name in the app. Tap the account name, ...

Found it - you have to go through the phone's general settings, not the Email app. Settings > Personal > Accounts > Exchange ActiveSync, then select your account, then there's a option "Remove" in the menu from the ... dots menu icon at the top right of the screen.

Cache is a kind of temporary storage for faster access to e.g. files loaded via network. In case of an email app, this most likely holds contents that where attached to a mail (like images: you even named a .jpg, that's it), so it doesn't need to be re-loaded via the network each time the user looks up a message (see: Web cache). Also see our cache tag-wiki....

From the Android stock email app, you can permanently delete emails if you access the trash folder and delete them from there: Select and email to delete and touch the delete icon; Access the Trash folder; Repeat step 1 inside the trash folder for the same email. With this steps, the email gets permanently deleted from your account. I've tested this ...

You can use Kaiten Mail, an advanced version of K-9 Mail. It supports multiple IMAP, POP3, Exchange 2003/2007 (via WebDAV); but not Exchange ActiveSync. When you reply to a message, you can change the sender. If you click on the header (email address), a "Send as" dialog will popup.

As far as I can tell, no, there is not a way to configure where sent mail is placed using the IMAP email account on the Galaxy S III. There may be a 3rd party email app that can do this, but not the stock one on the S III. As suggested in the comments K-9 Mail does what you want.

Email APP If you are referring to the APP named "Email", you don't have to make any adjustments, the subscription process is fully automated, I just test. Ps: No options available on this application for that type of settings, perhaps the reason as to why its fully automated and by default in sync. Gmail APP If you are referring to the Gmail APP, you ...

Does having the sync option enabled for an account literally mean that the account will remain synced with the mail server - regardless of type? The Sync option means your device will connect to the server automatically at established intervals. If your device sees what is on the server or simply download mails depends on which kind of connection you use ...
