    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.

    I've been using k9 for about 2-3 months now with no issues. Gmail, imap and a corp exchange acct. Works great.

    I've been using "Improved Email" by "mtwebster" for about five months now. I love it. I tried K9, but found it a bit buggy on both my Droid and Droid2. I've had no real issues with Improved Email. It handles Gmail, POP3, IMAP, other webmail services (Hotmail and the like), etc. I think it handles Exchange servers, but I don't recall. (I use the stock app' for my work's Exchange server, which is one thing the stock app' does well.) Improved Email keeps separate sets of folders (all folders on the server - inbox, outbox, drafts, deleted, plus ones you create) for each account and they are easy to navigate. Plus there is a combined inbox, for a quick review of all mail. It's intuitive to configure. It's easy to single or multiple delete. I like the visual cues better than other app's, although that's purely personal preference.

    The only feature that doesn't work on my phone is the feature to color different folders differently, but it is a feature I think would muddy up the interface and I wouldn't use it anyway. The only feature I wish it had is the ability to send mail with a 'reply to' different than the mailbox account. But I've written the author and he is working on it.

    Anyway, you might want to check it out.

    Is your school account setup as IMAP or an Exchange account. If it's the former, then try setting it up as an Exchange account.

    Strong believer in K9 here. I've been running it since December last year without any problems. You can even use a PGP/GPG app called AGP which is integrated right into K9's interface. I'm currently running 2 IMAP accounts with SSL/TLS. One for my personal mail server and the other for my army mail. I've never had a problem with K9.
