I love many things about my new Galaxy s7 however the native mail app is NOT one of them... So I thought I would share the CyanogenMod built Email.apk and Exchange2.apk files I pulled from an older rooted phone as replacements. The CM email app is my favorite as it is simple and very fast for IMAP/POP accounts and supports auto push for IMAP unlike the AOSP version. These files are from CM 13 (Android 6 Marshmallow) and all credit for their packaging and development goes to that amazing community - beyond the AOSP provided base of course

To successfully install don't forget to first turn on "unknown sources" under Settings/Lockscreen and security. Exchange2.apk is only needed to connect to Exchange servers. All that is needed is to download and then click on from your file manager...

As a helpful side note you can disable the native email app with Package Disabler Pro (or similar) app.

Hmm... what about the email does not work? Did it not install? Did you get it installed and you weren't able to set up an account?

Assuming you have the option to allow apps outside of the Google Play Store to be installed set to yes in your settings...

My solution is similar. I sideload Exchange Services, and that lets me use Gmail as my Exchange account's client. I subscribe to the Exchange Service's PB channel so I know when updates hit.
