In the other app the color will ALWAYS be visible, even if you scroll the mail text.

The messages in a conversation do not have necessary the same color, which will be a practical problem.

I just had to go to FairEmail settings to search for the left/right swipe options (which I could not find yet) and was pleasantly surprised by the many improvements Marcel made here. The sub-headings within each tab are very helpful. Great work Marcel and thank you for all the efforts and innumerable hours you have devoted to this project. Terrific app!

Like in this conversation (see screenshot) consisting of three mails, in which two different servers are involved. When opened, each mail only results in exactly the same coloring as its server.

How about displaying the conversation action bar at the bottom in the account color?

I have tried a vertical stripe alongside the messages at the end, but that looks ugly and overriding the theme colors is uneasy.

Yeah, it's worth a shot.

I have to say I am not a fan of this kind of "bling-bling".

Same here, I know I wouldn't like it

I have been thinking to use the detected language for the reply header too, but I am not sure if this is a good idea. Any opinions on this?

Please report any issue you discover, so it can be fixed.

I'm not sure how this would be privacy-wise. Does Android perform this detection fully offline?

It works similar to suggesting conversation actions, by using an on-device neural network.

Yup. Having your own mail server helps also. Only bad thing is that for sending messages you would have to relay through a known provider. Otherwise most mail is considered spam due to spam filters that check for originator ip adress

Sending messages yourself is problematic to say the least and the only feasible solution is using a third party to send messages. Indirectly, this is a kind of monopoly.

Given that people are not aware that their data is used in ways they don't want ("I did not know they were doing that"), Edison is violating the GDPR, for which they should get a huge fine IMHO.
