How to use gmail only with exchange account?


Friday 25th of February 2011 / androidforums.com
Hi guys, I'm wondering if there is a way to use gmail as a sort of email client in the sense that I basically wouldn't have to log into my windows live account which is an exchange account I use for school. I know we can have email forwarded to gmail, but is there a way that I can delete emails and send emails from my exchange account, from within gmail?The reason I'm asking is because I want to stop using the email app and use only the gmail app. Can I add an exchange account to the gmail on my computer somehow? I've gone through the settings but don't see anything solid, just forwarding stuff.

Useless contacts in messaging app?


Monday 08th of October 2012 / forums.androidcentral.com
Apparently when I logged into Gmail on my new Samsung Galaxy S3, it imported all of my Gmail contacts (ie every person I've ever sent an email to or received an email from), but not into the normal "contacts" app where they can be edited, ONLY to the contacts listed when I send a message. This is really frustrating because I like to send pictures to multiple people, so I tend to scroll through my contacts and pick who I want it to be sent to - now I have hundreds of useless contacts to scroll through! I thought maybe if I deleted the useless contacts from my Gmail account, it would also delete them from the messaging app - however, that didn't help. Any advice?

Copying the Email App In Gmail


Saturday 12th of May 2012 / droidforums.net
Is it possible to imitate the behavior of the email app with GMail? I'm not sure if it is normal, but clicking the email app on my phone is essentially equivalent to logging into my email from a browser(Georgia Tech college e-mail). If I delete an email on my phone, it is deleted from Tech's server and if I log in through their system it will be gone, and visa versa. I don't think that I've done enough testing just yet, but using "Send mail as:" and "Check mail from other accounts (using POP3):" under Accounts and Import seems to effectively just create a double of my school account instead of working through it like the email app. Also it is not updated instantly.I am not sure if this is possible, but based on the way that the app works, I expect that i should be able to do this with GMail in a browser. I know that this is not really a phone question...but Google's customer service is...non existant.

Duplicate email addresses when sending in gmail client


Sunday 23rd of October 2011 / forums.androidcentral.com
On the Droid 3, when sending an email through gmail all my email addresses appear twice like this: "user@domain.com" <user@domain.com>. The email is then unable to be sent, unless I delete one of the addresses. My Corporate synced account (the default email client??) can handle this format, but the gmail app can't. There are no duplicate contacts and everything looks fine in my Outlook Contacts (where the contacts originated from) Other than deleting one of the addresses before I send an email, or going through everyone of my contacts, is there a way to correct this? Thanks for your help!

email accounts won't delete from mail app on Droid Razr (ICS)


Friday 06th of July 2012 / droidforums.net
How can I delete email accounts from the stock email app on my Droid Razr (ICS)?I have given up on the stock Android mail client. It did not work under Gingerbread and still does not work under ICS. Even the gmail accounts did not work, which is interesting. I now use K9, which seems to be working (I have two gmail accounts, a yahoo mail account, a hotmail account and two pop mail accounts)I just want to stop the stock mail client from trying to download messages and there are 3 mail accounts that I cannot remove (gmail, yahoo and Cox pop mail).I get a message saying "invalid credentials" when I try to remove the accounts (which never worked in the first place because I was already getting the invalid credential message when trying to set them up).Why would I need credentials to remove an account from the phone is beyond me.But I don't need to understand why Google is unable to make a mail client work with their own mail system, I just want to delete the accounts.Any help appreciated.Thanks in advance,DidierPS: I also use an iPhone 4S that my company gave me for an overseas

Gmail vs Mail - confused.


Saturday 24th of December 2011 / forums.androidcentral.com
I am confused by trying to figure out the difference between Mail and the GMail application. Configuration under accounts:Google: Sync's everything (see note below).Gmail: Yes - sync So I have it setup twice under accounts. I had the Google gmail sync turned off for a while. I haven't been able to tell the difference. The notification bar shows mail with the Gmail icon. When I open it via notification I think it is taking me into the generic mail tool and it shows all my emails even if they were deleted off of my gmail account that day. I added the Gmail app to my home screen and removed the generic Mail icon. This seems to work. So what I want to accomplish is:1) Have one email tool that is pulled up from notification and home screen.2) When I delete an email in the gmail app I want it to delete it from my actual gmail account - it doesn't seem to3) Is there a way for the gmail app to let me move emails to folders in my gmail account? Thanks for any help.

How do you delete an email account on Gmail 4.5.2?


Thursday 29th of August 2013 / forums.androidcentral.com
I use the gmail app to check my gmail accounts but I just graduated college and now have a defunct academic account that I want to delete. I can't login to it either so I constantly am getting sign-in error notifications. I see how to add another account but I can't figure out how to delete one.

Email vs Gmail Apps: Deleting an Account?


Friday 10th of January 2014 / forums.androidcentral.com
This morning, at 0538 hrs, I discovered that both the Email and Gmail apps were checking my gmail account for messages (I had turned off notifications for one app but not the other and got an email). Looking at the accounts handled by each app, I see my gmail account in both. How do I remove that account from the Email app but leave it in the Gmail app? In Email, I see the option to add an account. But, I see no way to delete an account. At the phone level, if I go to IMAP under Settings | Accounts, I see that gmail account, but I worry that if I remove it I'll be removing that account throughout the phone and not just under the Email app. Is that same gmail account I see under Settings | Accounts | Google just a sort of logical pointer to the same account as under IMAP or are they completely separate entities?
