    I have 2 email addresses synced to my phone. My gmail syncs great with the gmail app, but my school address (imap) is synced with the other stock app and it never syncs my emails correctly. Its a microsoft live account. I want an app that can manage both accounts. What is best for that?

    I think your best option is going to be linking your school account into your gmail

    How do I do that? So that will forward all my school emails to my gmail inbox? What will happen if I reply, will it reply with my gmail or school address?

    Well it should be under settings then accounts. Yes you will be able to chose which email to send from. Also have you tried the stock email app? I don't believe it supports multiple accounts but its a second separate app. Should already be in your phone

    Try it as the previous poster said. If that doesn't work then contact your schools IT department. I'm not sure what they do, I've just read a lot of post by people who are students who have had issues.

    The stock email apparently does support multiple accounts. I have 2 yahoo accounts with it. But I never thought Microsoft's email was any good. I say forward to Gmail also. That's what I do with mine.

    I don't know of any sorry. Your better off forwarding it to your gmail. You really are.

    Check out K9 email. I have 4 email accounts: 3 google apps and a personal gmail (all imap). K9 supports universal inbox and more.

    I personally wouldn't use this app. I have had a lot of trouble with this app. The app is buggy and even verizon couldn't get it working.

    Yes, the universal inbox just lets you see messages from both accounts simultaneously, but you don't have to use that view. I have 2 IMAP accounts set up with it as well with no problems (both Gmail).

    @kraxyk what problems were you having? I rarely see people having problems with k9 on this forum and most of those are generally fixed.

    I meant if I link my school address to my gmail, can I have the emails come in seperately instead of mixing my inbox?

    For me its laggy, has errors and sometimes doesn't work with email accounts. It also seems to force close a lot

    I have been using K9 for awhile now for my 3 different email accounts and have had no problems with it. I like it a lot better than the stock email app.

    If I link my school act to my gmail, can I have all my school email automatically go in a seperate folder?

    That more likely a configuration issue. K9 is rock solid and preferred by many power users (whatever that means)

    Yes, though you'll have to setup filters and labels for it.

    Yeah, yeah.. I'm on my phone. So?

    I believe so. But I'm not 100% sure. If not a specific folder I know you can sort or find it by the label or filtering

    Gmail doesn't support folders as we know them, instead things are put into labels which appear like folders.
