I know what you mean, but on the other side, it would look cleaner / less cluttered. As one of my design teachers used to say: "Don't be afraid of white space."

I think you are exaggerating with being cluttered. The action bar and the content below it are two different things with a different function, which do not need to be aligned. Look at other apps and you'll see this is almost never aligned.

It's just an idea (and you've asked for ideas - it's your app, do what you want). The other point, about the indentation of the sender and subject in the list you might really want to consider.

It is not about being my app. It is about finding the right middle ground.

I think it is important to keep as much a possible space for the subject because these are often on the long side.

At least in my case there are just occasional contact photos, so it would be a waste of space to display an open space in most cases. The from address has a bigger font, for good reasons, and tends to take up a lot of space already.

Ah, OK, for the Play Store purchases then, I presume. Because I bought the Pro features separately and have identifiers blocked in XPrivacyLua, and I still have them.

File Viewer for Android (Sharpened Productions) works, as does the Dropbox viewer.
Thinkfree Office viewer does not.

Connectivity change? Don't worry FairEmail will automatically reconnect.

Is it possible to use two FairMail devices with same accounts at the same time?
Get i collisions?

That is possible without any problem because FairEmail does two way synchronization.
