What if any is there a benefit to using the Built in iPhone Mail app?  Or, is it better to just download and use an app like Yahoo's app.  Please help, phones are confusing to me lol.

 

Or, is the iPhone Default Mail App just going out and getting and using the same app engine as the seperate Yahoo app.

 

EIDT: Okay, I found some info, but I still feel a bit in the dark as to if it's a good idea to Uninstall the Default, and still if it is a good idea to install a Third Party App?

 

Thanks, pc

Its better to use the default mail app as you can add multiple accounts on the app. Using third party apps takes up space so better use the default one.

Well it appears that the iphone app is quite good, but I see here where it was not working with yahoo very well at one point.

 

The Yahoo Mail app does work, but this is obviously not an ideal fix; there are a lot of advantages to accessing your email through the system Mail app rather than a third-party client.

I'll use my yahoo app for now lol.  As for others, will use the built in app I guess.  Space would be the concern I guess as I don't see any other reasons not to use it.  I thought I read somewhere that some of the (what would you call them Second Party apps, like gmail etc.?) are a little better in functionality.

 

I suppose all of these are little email like Clients?  Good stuff!
