Aqua Mail Gets My Perfect Email Vote

Aqua Mail

Aqua Mail has completely ruined the old epithet that it is better to travel than arrive.  Over the years I have liked nothing better to try out a wide range of Android email apps and finding their strengths and weaknesses before moving onto the next one.
