I didn't try Matthew's solution but it seems the safer solution to try first. If that doesn't work though, I deleted the entire conversation from the outbox, having given up on trying to keep the conversation. I was surprised to find that this only deleted the queued message. The rest of the conversation stayed intact in my inbox.

There is no stock option to do this. Here's what I do, and it works pretty good, but isn't perfect. Download Reduce Photo Size from the Play store. When composing an email, click Add Attachment. A choice of locations will pop up. Choose Reduce Photo Size. Then choose either Select Image or Take a Photo. If you click Select Image, then choose Gallery. Once ...

Unfortunately, the Stock Android Email app has the IMAP folder names hard-coded in the application, they cannot be changed by the user. The app expects the folders to have the following names: Inbox Outbox Drafts Trash Sent Junk If your IMAP server uses different names, they are not properly synchronized with the Email app. There are two solutions to this: ...

From the Gmail web interface, create a rule to give it a label of your choice and skip the inbox. Then, from the Gmail Android app, change the settings for that label to not notify you.

Google Voice Actions has what you want. Simply enter voice command mode, say "note to self", then say whatever your note is. When you're done an email message will be sent to you with the text of your message.

Your employer is informing you of the security you need to implement on your device to access company mails / apps etc. This is a standard practice to endure that company confidential information is not compromised owing to your not having secure lock screen etc. They are not changing it for you. They are asking you to change it. Going by the screenshot, it'...

Not for a specific person -- but still a shortcut, which simply opens the "compose new mail" screen: Compose Mail Shortcut. There's also Send Mail Shortcut which, from the name, sounds to exactly fit your purpose -- but as it helds no description at all, it's hard to tell. Last but not least: Mail Linker even seems to fit right from its description. ...

Image Shrink Lite is just right for me; there's a paid version with more options.

You might want to take a look at e.g. Mail Myself / SelfMail (which integrate into the Share menu), or Email Me / Email To Self: Create homescreen shortcuts which use a preselected email address and/or label by long pressing on a blank space on your homescreen, then select Shortcuts, then Email To Self. Guess that's what you're looking for ;)

After some mucking around, I discovered Google (un-intuitively) changed the way you can share photos in the gallery for email and wifi. You now need to do this Open Gallery > Select Menu button > select "Select Items" > select the share button at the top of screen. All the icons should appear now in the share dialog window.

With Tasker, you could try this: Condition: State → Power Task: Send SMS (Note that Compose Email / Compose MMS / Compose SMS only open the dialog and let you edit, so you would need to use the Send SMS option to have it automatically sent).

From the Email app, press the menu key, then choose Settings. Pick Account settings, then click the account you want to change on the next screen. After that, you have to scroll to the bottom to get More settings, and to the bottom again to change the Incoming settings and Outgoing settings.

There is currently no way of doing it. You can download apps again to the same userid account on different devices, but you cannot transfer those licenses to other userids. So you'll have to rebuy the apps on one account which you wish to keep if you want to stop using both accounts.

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 ...

One way would be to clear the data for Gmail via the Settings app.

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, ...

Not sure if you've made any headway on this. I was searching for answers for this today and got it figured out. I've got a Galaxy S4, running 4.2.2 I had to open the native email app. Menu > Settings > Exchange Account with sub folders > More Settings > Folder Sync Settings. From there I think it should be self explanatory. Not sure what ...

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 ...

I had the same problem and this is what I did... Start at your home screen and swipe down from the top to display your notifications. At the top right, tap the gear/wheel (which is settings). Then, tap accounts. Next, email. If you have more than one email on this app, you have to do the following for each email address--I have two on mine. You will have a ...

You cannot uninstall Email as it's a system app. Either disable Gmail or Email from Settings->Apps->All . Or root your phone and then uninstall it using apps like System App Remover If you can't do either of the above two, just somehow try to logout from either Gmail or Email so as to avoid double mails. Or if you just don't want those notications alone, ...
