Android is a mobile operating system developed by Google, based on the Linux kernel and designed primarily for touchscreen mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets. Android's user interface is based on direct manipulation, using touch gestures that loosely correspond to real-world actions, such as swiping, tapping and pinching, to manipulate on-screen objects, along with a virtual keyboard for text input. In addition to touchscreen devices, variants of Android are also used on notebooks, game consoles, digital cameras, televisions, automobiles and other electronics. Applications are usually developed in Java programming language using the Android software development kit (SDK), but other development environments are also available, including Delphi, Ruby and Visual Studio (using C++).

Android Email Apps
In my humble opinion (IMHO), TouchDown from Symantec is the best in class for this type of application, but Symantec has end-of-lifed it and although one can keep using it, it will no longer be supported or upgraded. Time to look for alternatives to getting Exchange email on your Android phone.

Unfortunately, Symantec TouchDown has become fairly problematic for me on my Galaxy S9.  So, I am looking for a replacement (curse you Symantec!)

Can someone confirm that the 9 app contains all Exchange info in the app itself so that a remote wipe will only wipe out data in the app?  Or, will a remote wipe clear all the data from my phone including pictures, texts, apps, etc.? That's one of the reasons I love TouchDown:  it's self-contained and doesn't effect the rest of my phone (it is my own phone, not issued by the firm).   I think Steve Markert said in a comment that the 9 app does do that, but the article says it doesn't.

We have very strict information security policies at my firm. So, I need the email app to accept our firm's security policies to allow a remote wipe of all data related to my firm email.  If 9 won't do that, using it would be a violation of our firm's security policy and would probably get me in trouble (especially since I work in IT and I am one of the ones tasked with enforcing our information security policy).

I am not at the moment updating all the reviews, but I met someone who works for the company which makes Edison Mail.  They encouraged me to take a second look.  I have taken a look and one thing has changed, one can now see all unread email.  Everything else in the review remains the same.  The net takeaway is that Edison Mail and TypeApp now rate the same, a 3.0 out of 5.

Modern OS from Windows 7 onwards will disable disk cache and you will not have performance gain on using a RAMDisk.

Besides, the wearing from disk read and write will not have a significant impact to your SSD.

https://www.howtogeek.com/256859/dont-waste-time-optimizing-your-ssd-windows-knows-what-its-doing/

I have changed the HDD to SSD for a number of desktop PC for more than 18 months and they are still running to top speed like Day 1.

Before I changed to SSD, I did use RAMDisk to make Windows 7 ran faster by moving all cached and temporary files to the RAMDisk and my experience shows that the article in the link above is correct.

Besides, unless you are staying with 32 bit MS Windows, you will not have spare RAM for RAMDisk and it is better to let the OS to handle memory management.

I found that on my Windows 10 64 bit machine with a 256gb boot SSD (1tb data drive HDD 7200rpm), RAMDisk made a huge difference.  I found the same on my brand new laptop (Lenovo Yoga) with SSD.  I even bought the software.

I don't use the built in email reader and did not have that problem with email.  I use touchdown from Symantec for my exchange/work email and inbox from google for my gmail email.  Both of these apps seem to work fine after coming back from UPS.
