Is there any Outlook for Android? If not, should I use an IMAP or POP3 client for Android instead? Which one do you recommend?

    IMAP is almost always better than POP3, as you have two-way synchronization. Android's built-in email applications (called Email) supports both IMAP and POP, it just depends on your email server.

You don't mention which phone or Android version you're using. On my Motorola Droid (Android 2.2) the built-in E-mail application allows me to connect to my employers Exchange server. When I created the account, I had three options for connecting: POP3, IMAP, and Exchange.

There are other e-mail clients out there that may also connect to Exchange.

  • I thought the built-in app was only for GMail accounts

    Gmail is a separate application.

You could try K9 Mail. I use it for non-Exchange accounts and it works great, so I know it's a great email app in general. I believe it has the ability to connect to Exchange servers, too, so...there you go!
