I'm looking for an Android email client (preferably free) for my Galaxy S4 that has the feature of filtering incoming email by size, that is: some kind of rule of the type: if email is more than [insert number] Kb, don't download from server, etc.

An alternative would be to filter incoming mail with attachments, as all I really want is to not download big emails.

I have tried some popular apps including the default Samsung app, CloudMagic, Mailbox and all seem to lack this apparently basic funcionality.

Thanks in advance!

  • I'm not sure if it has it, but K-9 Mail has a lot of settings, so it might be worth a try.

K-9 Mail app (available on PlayStore) will filter by attachments, plus several other choices. It is open sourced and free.

  • K9 did the trick, it filters by size too, and it comes with that option enabled by default!! (Fetch messages up to 32Kb). Sep 24, 2014 at 19:24
  • @RossC thanks, my connection was really bad, also had issues editing....fixed now
