There is a free (as in freedom) application Send Reduced, available at the F-Droid repository of free software. Install F-Droid, install Send Reduced, select your photos, press Share button, select Send Reduced and then select the sharing method. Your photos will be sent reduced in resolution and file size.

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. In more detail, the first part is: Log into Gmail in a browser, and click the settings button (gear icon). Click the Filters tab, then Create a new filter at the bottom. ...

Unfortunately, it is not possible to change the frequency of emails sync using Outlook for Android (see the thread Set sync frequency and quiet times on outlook app). From the link above: There are no such settings in the Outlook or OWA apps from the play store Outlook for Android users have requested the feature on Uservoice. However, it has not been ...

Modern email clients are often able to detect the email server settings just from the username / password tuple. If you are suddenly asked for an protocol (and possible outgoing/incoming mail server settings) then you should look them up on your mail providers homepage. E.g., a quick Google search came up with this page for Bell Canada.

There is no option to set notifications on sub folders using the stock email app. You can set each folder to sync but only the inbox will throw a notification. There are some email apps that will do it though. Touchdown does for sure but it is a $20 app. K9 is another popular email app but I have not tested for this functionality.

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 ...

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'...

Had issue that "None", "Slide" and "Face unlock" were all greyed out. Went to Security->Clear Credentials and all options became available.

Unbelievably this bug is still outstanding as of Android 4.0.4. http://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=1029 The only fix for this is to use a different email app. Most people end up switching to GMail. Not happy. I miss my Nokia N900.

If it's not available in the app settings, the functionality most likely simply isn't there. There are other clients you can use if it's important to you. If you want some tips for alternative apps, I suggest you look at The Best Alternative Android Apps to Manage All Your Email, or Google for a similar article.

Mozilla have not created a Thunderbird app, so you're not going to have that option. That said, there are dozens (or more) email apps in the Play Store. (Not to mention the stock email app that ships with the device.) A large number of them can handle multiple email accounts just fine.

I've tried on my Galaxy S3 and I couldn't find a way to do this. Searching on the web returns nothing more (aside of trying to delete/recreate an account until it's given the color you want, which I didn't try). You can use another mail client than the one pre-installed on the GS3. I've tried the following ones: MailDroid: great one, possible to choose ...

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. ...

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 ;)

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

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.

In the latest release of Gmail you can long-press on the link and a menu will appear showing you the link. You then have options to "Open in Browser", "Copy link URL", &c.

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).

You will need to go into your Google Account settings and revoke issued permissions for any app which you no longer wish to have access to your Google account. You can review connected apps at https://accounts.google.com/b/0/IssuedAuthSubTokens?hl=en

Within the gMail app you can select multiple messages by using the big capital letters in front of a message.

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. Samsung appears to have taken lessons from Microsoft on hiding ...

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.
