Droid-X Email and Emails Clients

I’m sure that some of the users who will read this switched to a Droid-X from Blackberry. I myself was a Blackberry user for many years prior to switching to the Droid line of phones. I started with the original  droid and then went to the X.  I’m sure some of you have noticed duplicate emails, lengthy waits for emails and maybe not getting them at all.  If you have a gmail account you are good and normally get them before your computer does.  But what if you don’t have a gmail account?

Lets say that you have a Verizon.net email account, Comcast account or Cox.  I noticed when I first switched to Droid that I grew frustrated quickly because my email wasn’t “real time” like blackberry.  I searched high and low for a solution to this and came up with this answer.

The Droid-X’s stock email client “email” is poor in my opinion.  I have switched from that to “Maildroid” an app in the market which is free with add support but also provides a paid version if you don’t like the adds.  Maildroid has given me back my “push” email and has yet to fail me after a good amount of use.  It seems more organized than the stock mail client and also has a feature where you can add multiple accounts.  You can also assign custom notifications to each email account.

In closing, if you are coming from a blackberry and have experienced issues with the stock email client DEFINITELY give maildroid a shot.  There is also another “aftermarket” mail client called K9Mail but I have found that maildroid takes the cake when it comes to email.
