When I share to Slack and the Slack interface shows up, and I click send the error message is "Error sending message. Try again."

I am unable to share what it posted as the link because I am a new user.

Share how to Slack?
How is this related to FairEmail?
Isn't this a Slack problem?

At the top of the incoming email there is a menu opt i on to share the email, I wished to share it on a Slack channel (like Discord), the process will not complete. When I tried sharing the link FairMail created, it did not work (it actually shared 2 links, when tried separately, neither worked.)

I will try to share to slack feom another email in FairMail...

FairEmail uses a standard ACTION_SEND filling in the extras:
  • EXTRA_EMAIL: from email address
  • EXTRA_SUBJECT: message subject
  • EXTRA_TEXT: plain message text

I don't see what could go wrong with this.

FairEmail shares plain text (not HTML), so this seems a Slack problem to me.

Well, I showed you what it shared... I will check with Slack, though other apps are sharing just fine.

I guess it is far from a deal breaker as my old mail client, Maildroid also does not share. I was just excited that FairMail offerred the capability. Please remember, the link it is sharing does not work.

I will check with Slack and let you know what I learn.

Thank you for your time.

The signer name being the certificate name (usually user's email for s/mime)? It should definitely not show the name taken from mail header as that could be From: Susan and Signed by Mary.

For comparison I just sent myself a pgp signed email and looked at it with FE. There is a 'signed' icon which, if touched, shows 'Message Signature Valid'.

a) It would be nice if it also shows the UID of the signing key as many people use different keys for different purposes and as above the From and the signer do not have to match
(lets ignore dkim/dmarc )

The UID being "First Last Comment <[email protected]>"
I assume same would be true for s/mime signature - its important to know the UID or at least the email part of the certificate as well I'd think.

Thunderbird enigmail, for example shows:
Good signature from UID
(click to show) Key ID: 0Xxxxxx / SIgned on Date Time
There is also a details button which shows the certificate info and validity (which could be done using openkeychain).

For s/mime the UID would simply be <[email protected]> - cert of course has a key id (fingerprint) as well.

b) it also shows 2 attachments (application/pgp signature and text/plain content asc - do these need to be shown? Doesn't really matter just asking.
