So there you have it - ads are very likely going to be part of Gmail soon. After all, it seems almost silly to not monetize a core app with an absolutely massive install base - between 500 million and a billion. I just hope these ads won't be overly intrusive, and from the looks of things, the Gmail team is approaching the situation with care.

Ads on my Android Gmail application? Seriously, Google?

Alternatives?

k9mail for Android looks best for me and I'm using it for all my emails. Just use the latest versions from their website https://code.google.com/p/k9mail/downloads/list or better use Fdroid open source application store. They tend to provide latest versions. k9mail on Google Play is usually outdated.

That is not correct.

The K-9 Mail app published on the Play Store is the latest _STABLE_ version of the app. On Google Code you can download any development release to play around with.
