Question [Q] Push email on stock Rom unrooted

Dear friends...

One of the very few disadvantages of this fantastic device is that the stock email app doesnt support push for more than one hotmail account.
(or windowslive or live etc)
Appart from the main account, the others use manual fetch. (Only the time periods for fetch can be adjusted)

I've tested a number of apps and the only one that seems to be working properly with push and no problems is Touchdown HD.
The problem is that this app is a little expensive (after the 30 day trial)

Any other recommendations verified to be working?

Please keep in mind that for the time being I don't intend on rooting the device so all suggestions should be for the stock phone.
My device is the international version.

Thanks

I use outlook.com app for hotmail (official microsoft email app).
I syncs everything and gives you push email. However I dunno if it supports more than 1 account.

Great! A trick is to keep 1 account on default LG email app and the other on outlook.com app!

Wow! I just read the comments on the play store and they are horrible. I just remembered this is why I didn't download this app when I was looking. Someone even mentions that they blocked his account after some confusion. A bit of a gamble this one....

Update on my last comment:

The app (oulook) works great and looks just like I like it!!! Clean and minimalistic!!!
Not a lot of settings (like notification sound for example) but I dont care. Looks nice, push works fine!!!

For now, Im keeping it.
Thanks again

Wow man!!! You made my day!!!

I also learned an important lesson:
Comments are useful on google play but sometimes you just gotta give it a try for yourself!!!
