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:
I don't know if it's a well known email provider but including mailbox.org would be great:
I'm really looking forward to test your app!
