What's a good alternative email app for Android?

Don't really like the default one! Any good free alternatives on the market?

I use K9. Basically because I'm a geek and it's got a picture of K9 from Dr Who.
It's free (of course) and I find it more friendly than the basic Android one and has a unified Inbox if you've got several accounts you want to look up. And you can SEARCH your inbox. Wonders!
Of course things may have changed from the basic Android email in 2.1 but I haven't used it since last year and upgraded through 2.2 to 2.3 since then and stuck with K9

If you have native email software available for your email account (Gmail, Yahoo) it's better to use it. They come with push technology that will save you data charges and battery life.

I use K9 for ymail; the ymail app is horrendous. Massive, loads at any opportunity...poor. However, all my other accounts are gmail, and I can't find a better option than the stock gmail app. Sorry.
