K-9 Mail does load attachments only on request. But your problem is not only the Client, it's more the protocol used for retrieving E-Mail: POP3 does not support the partial download of an E-Mail without their attachment(s), whereas IMAP does. Besides of that IMAP has some nice extensions when it comes to mobile usage: Lemonade Profiles

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 ...

I had the same problem and think I found the place to correct it: 1) Open the e-mail client program on the Samsung 2) Go to "menu | account settings" 3) Disable SMS-sync Hope it works!

You can enable vibrate for SMS from Messaging -> Menu key -> Settings -> Notification settings -> Vibrate. Not sure about Email since I use K-9 (in case you use it too it's in the app, Long-press the account -> Account settings -> Notifications -> Vibrate).

Yes, you can use multiple accounts -- did you try it? I use 3. Add them like any other account through Settings -> Accounts and sync -> Add account.

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: ...

No, they are not. For as long as you have the account registered in your email app, the policies are applied, however, if you remove the email account then the policies will no-longer be enforced. The app is given a "device administrator" status (you can see any apps which have this in "Security" in your settings), and you can revoke that at any time. ...

Reposting answer for future people! Naturally, I figured it out 10 minutes after posting. Can't answer for another few hours because I'm a new user. Under the security section of the settings, there is a Device Administrator page. I deactivated the "Email" app as an admin. It warned that it would delete all my mail and stuff and I accepted. No factory ...

The majority of web based email providers have a limit of 10MB for the size of the attachment of every message sent. Since an email message will often pass through several mail transfer agents to reach the recipient, some or probably all of them impose size limits due to the storage capabilities they have to deal with. This is due to the fact that every ...

The Gmail application speaks Gmail's own proprietary protocol back to the Gmail server, whereas the Email application speaks open protocols such as POP3 or IMAP, as well as supporting ActiveSync. The Email application also has somewhat better support for multiple accounts. If you are only using a single Gmail account then it is better to use the Gmail ...

You could create a shortcut on your home screen to your Contact info. First make sure you've got an entry for yourself in your Contacts with your email address (not the "Me" Contact, but an extra one). Then go into your Applications screen, tap the Widgets tab at the top, find either the 4x1 or 1x1 "Contact" widget and add that to an empty spot on your ...

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. ...

Open Email. Enter your email credentials (the address and the password). Choose Manual setup. Choose IMAP. Enter server settings.

This feature is already provided by many email apps including official Gmail app. Gmail app even allows to set different notification tone of different labels. In Gmail, go to Settings ~> [Email-id of attached Account] (under Account Settings section) ~> Labels to Notify ~> [Label Name] ~> Ringtone (from pop-up). If your Gmail app doesn't have these ...

I know it's a workaround, but I frequently use SelfMail, which adds itself to the pretty-much-universal "Share" action. As an example, open a picture, select Share, and pick it from the list.

You could just save drafts (with GMail), no need to send the massage at all. or You do not need to use the "To:" header to send yourself mail at all but instead can send email to a `default-BCC field and leave the "To:" empty. K9 allows this:

There are many email apps for Android, each one should have an option within the app itself where you can check or uncheck to be notified of a new email arrival. This list covers the most popular ones: Email Allows you to have a notification on the status bar, when activated within the application: Access the application; Tap your device "home" button; ...

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.

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.

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.

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 ...

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'...

I went to the folder list. I then hit my menu button & a new menu popped up that said "refresh folders" on the bottom. When I did that, it grabbed the new folders I created & removed the ones I had deleted (from using previous webmail programs).

Default email app on my G2 supports IMAP, including encryption. I personally use K-9, which is free.

This probably depends on the device, as devices with custom UIs (TouchWiz, Sense, Motoblur) will have different email applications. On CyanogenMod (and I believe vanilla Android) you simply tick the checkmark next to the message or messages you want and the button slides in from the bottom.

K-9 Mail supports Exchange 2003/2007 via WebDAV. No support for Exchange 2010, unfortunately, since Microsoft removed WebDAV support in the newest version. See the official wiki page for configuration instructions.
