But Gmail is an excellent email client, too, and I assume adding your Exchange account to Gmail would also put your calendar into Google Calendar, which is my favorite mobile calendar app by far. ) And while I’m throwing wrenches into things, I’ll also point out that Google Inbox is even better when it comes to email, with a super-simple UI. I write “assume” there since I haven’t yet figured out how to configure my own Office 365 business account for Gmail: It asks for server and port configuration, but that’s for IMAP/SMTP, not Exchange. Although we currently don't support POP accounts, you can work around this issue by adding your POP account in an account, and then set up the account with our app.
The original blog post announcing this change is coming up with an error, so I’ll have to go by Google’s social networking posts instead.Which is fine, because this one is understandable enough.Anyway, that’s all changed, and modern Android versions no longer include that terrible Email client. My general advice is that Exchange/Office 365 users should look into using Microsoft Outlook Mobile on Android, which I like quite a bit and use regularly.
“All your mail in one place,” the Gmail team tweeted.
“An update to the Android Gmail app is now rolling out with support for Exchange accounts.” A similarly brief post on Google+ basically repeats the message.
