    Acer A500 Tab

    Why no stock Exchange Mail App?

    Hi,

    New A500 owner and just to let you know I love it even though this post is a minor complaint...

    I was totally expecting there to be a stock Exchange Mail App? I guess because there's been one with all the mail clients on my Android phones (HTC Hero & EVO).

    Just kind of bummed out about it because I like TouchDown and I like being able to get my work emails on the A500 but I don't to have to pay $20 to do so (and my work isn't going to pay it).

    Do you think Acer will eventually come out with Exchange email support on their stock mail client (like HTC did) does the Xoom have Exchange support?

    Just curious. Other than that no other major complaints, although I wish Google would get a move on with updating their apps for tablets (i.e. Voice and Docs) they're not going to win the Tablet OS battle if they don't get a move on with their apps!

    Hi,
    I just got my Iconia tab last night, and out of the box it DOES have exchange email support, i typed my settings and everything worked just fine.
    Go to Settings->Accounts & Sync Settings->Manage Accounts, click +Add account on the upper right corner, from the list choose "Corporate", enter your settings and there you go.

    Dude! You are awesome! I feel so stupid that I didn't see this before, duh! I owe you, I was moments away from buying an exchange app...

    Thanks!

    Ok, stupid question. When you set up your accounts, what app should the email open in? I have a GMail, a Yahoo, and a corporate Exchange account that I need to manage for email. All are set up in Settings\Accounts, but I want to combine all these into one email client. Unfortunately, the GMail account is defaulted to the GMail client and I have tried 6 - 7 other different email clients and some configure for one account but not the others. The only client I have been able to open all my accounts with is "Enhanced Email" but it doesn't show email folders in a hierarchical format (which is a necessity for me) and the UI isn't great. Am I missing something that will allow me to combine all my accounts using the default email client the A500 offers?

    Thanks

    Okay, I wasn't as stupid as I thought Apparently there was no Exchange Support on my unit until after the update was pushed, that's why I didn't see it before!

    The default "Email" app should be able to include all your email accounts. True, in the "Gmail" app you can only add Gmail accounts. However, you can add Gmail account in the default "Email" app as well.

    I have all my email accounts setup in "Email" (gmail, yahoo, exchange) and they all work fine from within that single app. It also has combined view as well.

    What level operating system do you have? I have A500 Android 3.0.1 and no Exchange yet. Here it is June 23rd. This thing is going back soon if they don't push the update. Can someone that have exchange working tell me what version OS they have?

    Thanks

    Best Android Email package is K-9.
    It does everything. Even signs and encrypts mail if you want.
    Free in the market.
    YMMV.
