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).

Just set up several accounts and tested, synchronized messages are extremely fast. looking forward to further development. Thanks!

I don't know if it's a well known email provider but including mailbox.org would be great:

<provider name="mailbox.org">
<imap
host="imap.mailbox.org"
port="993" />
<smtp
host="smtp.mailbox.org"
port="465"
starttls="false" />

I'm really looking forward to test your app!

Did you test if this provider works with the app?

Been using K9 for years, haven't found anything else I've liked to replace it. Looking forward to this -I'm a big fan of your work!

For yahoo.com:
imap.mail.yahoo.com:993,SSL/TLS true

smtp.mail.yahoo.com:587, STARTTLS True

When I try and configure yahoo with imap.mail.yahoo.com, port 993, it says "IDLE Not Supported" when I click on the OK button.
I am able to configure the SMTP server however with no issues using port 587

Great program.

Seems the number of synced emails in some folders is arbitrary? Only showing 7 in my Sent with gmail with no way to refresh.

Got this off the IzzyOnDroid repo.

Edit: scratch that, I figured out how to sync more days.

To others: long press folder name in the folder list
