About this app

As one of the first email clients added to the store, MailDroid focused on making email usable again. We were used to blackberry email and we wanted something like that here. We did not find anything, so we wrote our own. Give our app a try and once you see all the features it has, I promise you won't be disappointed. You can always email us and we will reply right away with help (even on weekends! Yes, we love our users!).

How is MailDroid different? For starters, it is a pure email client which means we don't have a back-end server looking at your mail. You set up your POP, IMAP, Exchange connections and the client speaks directly to the server. Second, it is powerful and yet easy to use. If you don't want to use the PGP or sMIME encryption, simply hide it. Want to use the old navigation over the new navigation drawer, your choice. Want to snooze your email or send it at a delayed time, you can do that as well! Third, we have oAuth2 to Gmail, Yahoo Mail, AOL Mail, and Outlook. oAuth2 means that the app just gets a token from those providers and does not see any password. For those of you who have had issues recently with these providers (specifically Gmail and Yahoo Mail), this is the solution! We worked with all these providers to make sure you feel super secure. Fourth, we have integrated with important and helpful third party email companies like SaneBox! Finally, we support our users! We email you back when you ask for help!!

You are our users and we have built this mail client around feedback from users. We have no agenda of what we need to add anymore, just what people want us to add. We support so many email providers automatically and for those that we can't figure out the settings for, a manual option always exists. We have added support for so many features, that many times we even forget some of the things we have added. Here is a short list:

1. Complete re-write and not based at all on the standard email application
2. Idle Push for all IMAP servers that support it
3. Download attachments to your device using any file explorer or use the built in file manager to manage your files
4. Settings Support for signature, font size, ring tone, led color, icon selection etc.
5. Custom Mail Rules
6. Spell Check
7. Search your mail online (for IMAP servers only) or offline for both IMAP and POP3 servers
8. Password Protection
9. Microsoft Exchange 2003,2007,2010, Office 365 servers
10. Full WYSIWYG editor
11. Split screen for tablets
12. Calendar integration using ICS attachment (exchange 2007/2010 and CalDav support is coming)
13. Cloud storage integration to save attachments (dropbox,, Google drive and SkyDrive/OneDrive)
14. Customize your inbox styles and themes to your preference
15. Spam Filter Plugin --> REQUIRES IN-APP PAYMENT
16. Email Threaded Mode
17. Light Flow, Tesla Unread, Apex Launcher, and Dashclock Integration
18. Different notification styles and icons
19. Identities/Aliases supported
20. Backup SMTP Provider
21. open PGP support using PGP Inline or PGP MIME
22. S/MIME support for all email providers
23. oAuth2 support for Gmail, Hotmail/Outlook, Yahoo, and AOL Mail
24. Support for SaneBox
25. Much more....

OK, that was a long list, but at least we left it with Much more... instead of going on. So why are you wasting time reading any more, just download the app and mail will finally work again for you!

NOTE: This is the ad supported model, a pro version exists as well on the store

Please email support if you have any questions

A few years ago, I was excited to find this very flexible and configurable email app. I use Thunderbird on Windows; Maildroid had the same level of ability. I used to get replies from the developer to my email questions. But, over time, as I send in questions or problem reports, nothing happens. Now there's a serious problem: the (IMAP) inbox on my main account doesn't show any messages. I could try reinstalling from scratch, but I think it's time to install the Fair Email app instead. ☹️

This is one of the E-Mail app sytems that I like, but it is somewhat complicated with all of its adjustments and/or settings. After using it enough, it gets easier to understand all of its adjustments and/or settings. In the adjustments and/or settings section, it allows for Inverting Colors. That makes the Compose section have all characters as white on a black background. That is exactly what I was looking for! Also, it shows help and support articles while offline!

I installed and uninstalled about 10 email apps before I tried MailDroid. I was delighted to see that it has two features that I was looking for, one of which is fairly unusual - the ability to set a 'reply-to' address since the email address I give to people is merely a forwarding service and sends it on to GMail which I rarely look at and our actual email address - and another that everyone should be concerned about - just one tap to see the actual email address that a message was sent from to make it easier to screen for phishing attempts. So far, so great. The interface is sensible and attractive and I liked the ability to customize the colors. I like the paper airplane icon that appears in the notification bar. The icon for the app displays a badge indicating the number of unread emails. There is something weird with some - and only some - attachments though. A bus company sent me two tickets as PDF attachments a few days ago and the page listing messages does indicate that there is one or more attachments and the email itself has a paperclip icon indicating attachments. Tapping on the paperclip jumps you down to the bottom of the message but there it showed a link to download the message to a file and then listed "Embedded Images" but not the PDFs. I searched all the menus but found nothing relevant (including no ability to turn off the display of embedded images). The Forum's page on the develper's site is not working and I was unable to find anything else online that addressed the issue so I sent the developer a message two days ago but perhaps not surprisingly, have had no response. I have the impression from other reviews that the developer has moved on to other things. However, I have other messages with PDF attachments and they work just as you'd expect with the ability to Save the attachments to the Downloads folder. (There is no View option but for me that is not a deal breaker since I can just go to Downloads and view from there.) The Sony email app on my old phone, Gmail and desktop email (Thunderbird) had no problem with this message so it is unclear why MailDroid stumbled on it. So there is a lot to like but test the attachments issue for yourself. I'm trying AquaMail in parallel and it seems to meet all my requirements.
