Boxer is an awesome Android mail client app with different mail actions and swipe actions. I liked the feature to customize swipe actions as per your preference, which is missing from most of the mail apps. The only thing that disappointed me a lot is that the free version supports only 1 email account. This practically means that I really won’t be using this app. If you are OK with this limitation, or don’t mind upgrading by paying (or referring friends), then do give this app a try.
