If you are looking for a good email client for your Android phone then the K9 mail Android might be a really good fit for you.  With the help of this app you can actually get a lot of sweet features.  This is a much better email client than the one that is already provided by Google so it is worth a look into.  One really cool thing that this app does is that you can use the iMap folder synchronization in order to have certain signatures and also to multi-manage a bunch of your emails from different inboxes all from your mobile phone.  The only gripe about this app is that it does not have ActiveSync.  Although the IMAP integrations help to speed it up quite a bit you will see a noticeable difference with the ActiveSync email clients.  But the great thing about this app is that it is completely free so it might be a good stepping stone to start out with until you can afford an ActiveSync account.

This app has gotten really good reviews from people who have tried it out and you will see that it has been given a status of 4.2 out of 5 stars by Android app users and that you can download it off of the Android marketplace for free.
