It is time for a new, modern, open source, privacy friendly email client for Android.

I have just released a first alpha version for feedback on the design and features.

Not for production use yet!

Most of the stuff basically works, but be prepared for crashes and error notifications.


Safe email is a working name, but it is for several reasons not a convenient name, so suggestions for a name are welcome.

As I always say with your new projects: "Downloading..." Feedbacks will come later.
I finally left K9 mail after using it for several years.

Thanks again for your work for the Android community!

I have just released alpha version 0.2

Alpha versions are not for production use!

Changelog/download:
https://github.com/M66B/open-source-email/releases

In case of error notifications you can now send me a logcat via the navigation drawer menu, but please check this XDA thread first to prevent me from looking into the same problem over and over again.

Feedback about the design, structure, navigation, features, etc is very welcome.

If you were wondering why you occasionally need to refresh messages in most other email apps, including the Gmail app, to get new email: these apps don't start a foreground service like this app does. This means that especially recent Android versions will kill the background service(s) of these app after some time, which will results in not only missing emails, but also in polling/synchronizing again, which is a waste of battery power and of internet bandwidth.

The foreground service of this app will synchronize messages in real time with the disadvantage of showing a low priority status bar notification, although the notification is a reassuring sign that things still work and it even shows some useful information, like the number of operations pending (mark as read, messages to send, etc).

If you use a well known email provider with this app and the provider is not listed in the account/identity screen, please provide the details of the provider (name, IMAP/SMTP host name/port number/STARTTLS) here.

The details of the current providers are here:
