Top Best Email Apps for Android

We depend on our smartphones for everything from news to weather to entertainment to communication. Even though we sometimes spend hours trying new apps only to never use them again, we often stick to default email apps without considering what alternatives are available. That’s why we’ve prepared this list of the best email apps for Android, featuring a selection of email clients with innovative features and a modern user experience.

Google Gmail

The chances are that Google Gmail came pre-installed on your Android smartphone, but we couldn’t resist featuring this popular email client anyway. With Gmail, you receive 15 GB of free online storage and access to other Google products, including Google Drive, Google Photos, or Google Docs, just to name a few. The Gmail attachment file size limit is 25 MB, which is almost twice as much as what you get with other email services, and Gmail has a number of useful features to help you communicate with those who you love and care about. We leave up to you to decide whether Gmail is the best email app for Android, but the fact that it’s used by more than 1.2 billion people on the planet speaks volumes about it.

Microsoft Outlook

The modern Outlook is Microsoft’s answer to Gmail. Long gone are the days when Outlook was an ugly and clunky enterprise-grade Windows application that everyone hated to use but couldn’t live without. Microsoft has reimagined what Outlook and developed an excellent and user-friendly email client for Android to make it accessible to everyone. Besides Microsoft’s own email services, Outlook for Android also works with Microsoft Exchange, Office 365, Gmail, and Yahoo Mail. We recommend you give Outlook a try especially if you’re a Windows user as you can use your Outlook account as your Windows account.

VMware Boxer

You probably wouldn’t expect a company known mostly for state-of-the-art virtualization software solutions to develop a radically innovative email client for Android, but VMware has done it. Boxer, as the company calls its email client, has been nominated for best mobile productivity app of the year, and it has received a lot of praise from a number of influential technology magazines and websites. At its core, Boxer is all about working with emails smarter and faster with features like bulk edit and quick replies. The app is built upon the belief that storage space is cheaper than time. As such, it prioritizes bulk email organization and sprinkles it with intuitive gestures and support for multiple email accounts.

K-9 Mail

K-9 Mail is a perfect email client for the supporters of open source software. Despite being a community-driven project, K-9 Mail has more features and better support for IMAP, POP3, and Exchange 2003/2007 (with WebDAV) than many other email clients from large companies. It supports multiple accounts, search, IMAP push email, multi-folder sync, flagging, filing, signatures, BCC-self, PGP/MIME, and much more, all while being completely free and hosted on GitHub. Perhaps the only thing K-9 Mail doesn’t have compared to many other best mail apps for Android is a modern user interface as it sometimes feels a bit outdated.

WeMail

WeMail is a progressive email client that has been designed with smartphones in mind. It respects the fact that most people today read, send, and organize their emails on smartphones by providing one-tap access to email attachments and voice email capabilities, among many other things. It works with Gmail, Yahoo, Outlook, AOL, and all other IMAP email services, with Exchange support coming soon. WeMail has been praised by Emmett Shear, the funder of Twitch, as well as by Steve Huffman, the co-founder and current CEO of the content sharing website Reddit.

Blue Mail

Blue Mail is an enterprise-ready email client with support for virtually all popular email providers as well as IMAP, POP3, and Exchange (ActiveSync, EWS, 365). Blue Mail allows its users to specify when they wish to receive new emails with customizable mobile notifications, and it can display rich-text signatures, allowing you to wow your business partners with your company logo and neatly formatted contact information.

Newton Mail

Newton Mail isn’t a traditional email client but a subscription-based email service designed to make email organization easier. It costs $49.99 a year, which is about $4, and works with Gmail, Exchange, Yahoo Mail, Hotmail/Outlook, iCloud, Google Apps, Office 365, and all IMAP accounts. Essentially, Newton Mail enhances your email experience with features such as Read Receipts, Snooze, Send Later, Undo Send, Sender Profile, Connected Apps, and others, helping you keep your inbox nicely organized.

Yandex.Mail

Yandex.Mail is a free email service from Russian corporation Yandex. It starts from 10 GB of free storage space and supports email attachments larger than 25 MB thanks to its integration with Yandex.Disk, cloud service created by Yandex. The official Android app of Yandex.Mail is polished, capable, and free. If you have a fairly common name and always struggle to register a decent email address with Western email service providers, Yandex.Mail might be just what you need.

Edison Mail

Edison Mail is the winner of Google Play Store 2017 Android Excellence Program and one of the most elegantly designed email clients in the Google Play Store. It works with email providers including Gmail, Yahoo Mail, AOL Mail, Hotmail, Outlook, Exchange, IMAP, Alto, iCloud, and others. Edison Mail features an intelligent personal assistant that manages your inbox for you and instantly responds to your questions, greatly reducing the time it takes to find information from emails.

Bonus: Clean Email

Clean Email is an email clean up tool that can automatically sort out your email into different categories, making it easier for you to organize your inbox. If you’re like most people, you probably have hundreds of unread emails polluting your email accounts, not to mention thousands and thousands of opened emails that are just sitting there and taking up storage space. With Clean Email, you can turn any messy inbox into clearly organized and meticulously labeled groups of related emails, and the app even allows you to block unwanted senders with the press of a button, so you never get into the same mess ever again.
