I've always used POP and have no plans to use IMAP. Just got an LG Venice
(very nice**) to replace my problematic ZTE Warp.  Installed K9Mail and it
seems quite nice so far.  No matter which system I check my mail from,
only my main laptop is ever allowed to delete from POP server.

Of my many email accounts, I've setup only 5 on the Android and am quite
happy so far.  K9Mail has auto-BCC which allows me to keep copies of any
mail I send from the phone.


** Been playing around with "Terminal IDE" -- gives reasonably complete
Linux environment which can be accessed from desktop/laptop for full
screen & keyboard via telnet & ssh with 4 terminals; root not required.
