Default Email app?

Anyone have a good solution for email? Gmail app doesn't work, and the browser based gmail is slow enough to make me not want to do it.

Maybe the Tab email app?

Does K9 provide notifications in the notification bar on the NC?

BTW is multi-touch working for anyone within K-9 mail. I can pinch and zoom using k-9 from my Samsung Vibrant but it doesnt work on the NC. I have enabled the option from the settings and all i get is the -+ overlay to zoom but not pinch to zoom.

I already have enabled multitouch systemwide using the xml file posted at the forums.

Agree that K-9 is the best alternative to GMail for now.
