    K9 Mail client

    Ok found a thread a few days back that was listing top five apps for this and that... had a problem with the email client that came with the DX wasn't letting me send email (even after talking with my IProvider about my settings) so I tried K9. Two questions..1. how do i stop the email client that came with the phone from recieving emails 2. when i had an email with K9 that had an attachment K9 wouldn't show it, came up with the error "Unable to find viewer for application/octet-stream" the email that came with phone is able to read it. thanks in advance for any responses

    I can open up docx attachments through k9 and xlsx spreadsheets as long as they aren't pw protected.

    FWIW, K9 had a recent update in the market. I'm pretty sure I could do this before the update but I'm not 100%.

    The version that is in the market right now is the most current version. The devs however are not very good about keeping the market up-to-date. I just went to their website and checked and there were twenty updates between the two most recent market versions. So if you are going to use K-9 go to their website and update frequently: Downloads - k9mail - Project Hosting on Google Code

    You've gotten a good answer to your first question: just go into settings on the native email app and set polling to "never". On the other issue, when I use K-9 I too can open docx documents. I do use Documents to Go and I know others use Gdocs. You may want to go here and check out some additional info: Wiki Pages - k9mail - Project Hosting on Google Code

    Good luck.
