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 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 ...

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).

Proper aliases, where you can pick either address as the sender, isn't possible in Gmail. However, in your case I understand you never want to use ab123456@domain; you always want to use first.last@domain. In that case, when adding a new account, use first.last@domain as your email address and choose manual setup. Enter your password when prompted and then, ...

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, ...

Direct phone-to-phone data transfer, on sound channel, is today inherently incompatible with the system. Some decades ago, an (even at the time) slow communication was possible by modems (with maximal transfer rate of 56 kb/s). Today the providers use various compression algorithms which optimize the sound transfer (for human voice), but limit the bit rate ...

I was able to achieve this on my Droid (running version 4.4.4) by updating the Outlook rule, instructing to flag the messages that were automatically being moved to the sub-folder. I now receive email notifications on my phone (using the stock app), even though the messages are going to a folder outside of the Inbox.

The images come from your Gmail contacts so you would need to create a contact for the "The Nudge" and assign a picture to it. To easily create a new contact for that email, open it up and click the icon next to the name. You should then be prompted to "Add to contacts?".

I respect your desire for pirvacy, but if you're so leery of Google-backed software that even the open-source Chromium is suspect, then I don't know that anything simple will meet your needs. I'll do my best to make suggestions for you. 1: Remove the Samsung ROM and replace it with something else. I'm not a privacy-demanding individual, and even I don't ...

Only Gmail app currently supports archiving for Gmail. Other mail providers do not have the concept of archiving emails, so this is limited only to Gmail and hence to Gmail app alone. If you want to archive the emails, you should use Gmail app, I see no other workaround.
