    Just use the hub, there is nothing like it and the search function is on point. I use the hub for 4 email accounts and no other notifications, color code the personal accounts separate from work and put my work account as a shortcut on homescreen. I've tried others and can't even get through a full day before I switch back to the hub.
    Sounds familiar

    R2Mail2 is a good email client, you can use it for IMAP and Exchange and you can add S/MIME and PGP encryption.

    I found out that if i want to have the best experience using phone and my lap i have to use gmail. If you have more than one email account the only way to have the same Inbox view foi all emails, and at the same time postpone , tags and starring using either phone or laptop (or desktop) you need gmail.
    Unless you use just your phone for every email subjects, thats the only way to have the perfect sync
    I can use HUB for whatsapp, sms and calls
    Others do not offer web acess, only apps , so you´ll never have the perfect sync (inbox, postpone, starr and tags or folders) between device and web (using lap or desktop)

    I have never receive spam email in the hub but receiving it in the outlook on my laptop..
    I don't sync my spam folders, so I don't get them. Please note the Android Outlook is not the same as Windows Outlook. They are both made by Microsoft, but have different features and capabilities. It's likely a setting you have on your laptop's Outlook, or how you have your emails syncing from the service you use.

    Now that my employer went the MDM route, I have to use their secure apps for all of my work stuff. My big problem is that I was using my work Outlook as my universal address book. And now, it is unavailable to my personal accounts in the Hub (and dialer). I am questioning whether to keep using the Hub at this point and just move my personal stuff to the secure apps (they allow you to setup personal email accounts). Of course, I really don't want my employer to have access to my personal stuff, but it would be a lot easier.

    Anyway, they are offering us the option of either Boxer or Outlook. They are fairly similar and decent.

    I use Nine. I think that the hub is great *but* the formatting makes it difficult to read a lot of html mail without zooming (it's possible that this has been fixed now) but Nine just works, and we have the same user experience across PRIV's, KEYone's and even S8's
    I am attempting to drop Hub due to it's reliance on BlackBerry contacts (for Add to Contacts function) and BlackBerry Calendar (for Invite to Meeting function). I just tried Nine and it really seems better than the other email clients but I can't seem to find a way to quickly toggle notifications (on/off) for each email account as there are two work email accounts that I want notifications to be turned off for when I'm in the office (as I will receive notifications through my laptop and don't want to be notified twice).

    It's just so frustrating that Hub really seems like the best one around so far but yet I can't use it for all functions without adding other BlackBerry apps.

    Hi Dawn, hub is semi abandoned at this point. It's only getting security updates and if there are major bugs, otherwise they seem to be taking away functionality instead of adding.
    I am still using Hub for my newsletter and other stuff, but I retired my work and primary personal email to Nine.
    I would also suggest look into Aqua Mail.
    Price wise Nine was great and time to time Aqua Mail goes on sale. Dont subscribe, but buy the license.

    I really wish Hub would keep up with the improvements and not be stale like it is now. There are many free apps with better functionality, it's a shame BB Hub went from most productive email app to a crippled basic hub.

    You can set quiet hours so you dont get notified when you are in office. Nine has hours you can set.

    Otherwise it doesn't have location based notification.

    Or you can use your phones location based settings if it supports.

    I am not in the office regular days or hours so setting quiet hours won't really work. Location is not going to work as well as there are some places in the office (like when I go for meetings) that I want notifications on. There just seems to be no easy way to have very specific notifications for different scenarios.

    Perhaps what I really miss is custom profiles in BBOS. During that time, I could quickly toggle between the different precise notifications I want (like when I'm at home, or office, or in a public area).

    the absolute best is to simply disable to revert to stock Hub and then disable auto-update for it individually on Google Play
