Question [Q] native email widget - not magazine ux

Got the 12.2 yesterday and quickly decide Touchwiz had to go. I decide to use an alternate launcher and setup email and calendar widgets. Lo and behold...there is no native email widget anymore! What the heck is Samsung thinking? It doesn't exist in Touchwiz or any other launcher I've tried.

I really like the email client tweaks but not tw nor magazine ux. I can't believe Sammy removed the native widget and force you to use mag-ux to see email list on home screen. Root might help because emailwidget supposedly works with root but i haven't tried it yet. I'm trying to hold off rooting until we have some more root/rom options.

Any ideas or alternatives?

Personally I like keeping my email clients separate.

My ISP uses POP, for which I currently use Aqua.

I use stock Gmail app for Gmail.

For my exchange email at work I use Touchdown HD.

What other solutions and/or recommendations are there for native email and calendar widgets?? I am using Nova Launcher, so no Mag UX for me, and therefore no widgets for email and calendar.
Samsung Galaxy Note3
ROM: AT&T Stock ROM
Android: 4.4.2



Samsung Galaxy NotePro 12.2
ROM: ROOTED Stock ROM
Android: 4.4.2

I use EventFlow for my agenda and calendar.

Not sure about widgets for stock email application but perhaps Android Pro Widget ?

I'm using K-9, and really pleased with it. In fact, went back and installed it on my Note 2 and Xoom (which doesn't see much use anymore.)
