    A handy way to consolidate your different email inboxes

    • Well designed interface
    • Lots of features
    • Customization options
    • Intrusive notifications
    • Annoying ads
    • Can't load multiple photos at once

    "In A World Of Email"


    MailDroid is a mail client that allows you to consolidate your mail streams into one place. It has a load of features and recognizes most native mail apps. It also comes with unique security features and supports formats other mail clients do not.


    The menu is designed well and the app has a real ease-of-use. MailDroid supports a lot of different formats, and is able to handle certificates and PGP settings. Being able to customize folders and set up different notification icons increases user engagement.


    The email notifications are a bit intrusive. The ads can get annoying sometimes. It would be nice if we could load up multiple photos at once, instead of having to load up each one individually.

    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

    Used this app for several years Recent update appears to force default view of combined inbox. The option to display it is on but greyed out so I can't turn it off

    Switched from my android mail service because they changed permission requirements and i wasn't comfortable with some of the new permissions requested. A friend recommend mail droid- gave it a shot and no issues so far. My previous service had no ads so if you arent used to it they can be a little annoying at first but they dont pop up and stop what im doing so easy to ignore. Definitely worth the switch for me.

    I love it. I have been using this app. Since 2013 when I decided to go to college. I used it for my school email. I recommend this to any college students, you will never miss an email

    I love MailDroid, it makes it easier to keep track of all my email accounts. My only issue is sometimes there's a hiccup (like right now my accounts won't sync unless I have the app open).
