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

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

Can you try if this works too:

Code:
smtp.mail.yahoo.com:465 no STARTTLS
(source: https://help.yahoo.com/kb/SLN4724.html)

STARTTLS starts with an unencrypted connection and is therefore less secure.

Absolutely f£&-ng awesome! Great work. It is sobering to be reminded of the privacy leaks we all endure presenting embedded links the way you do!

A little more about that: most email apps show HTML formatted messages and prevent displaying images in some way. This is generally safe until someone discovers a leak in the HTML rendering process. Safe email (I am still looking for a simple, easy to remember and unique name) puts security first and removes all HTML formatting and makes it possible to see the link targets first and to show individual images. This often results in easier to read messages (sometimes the font type and size is rather small for a small screen) and saves bandwidth because you don't need to see all images always.

Currently links/images are opened in an external browser, but this will be improved later.

Usually we directly select a provider and enter our credentials. Having to decide between "Configure account" and "Configure identity" is a bit disturbing.

I can't create my email account. I get a toast message saying "No drafts folder".
What does it mean?

If you are interesting by Free provider (french provider):
imap.free.fr
SSL
port 993

smtp.free.fr
SSL
port 465

EDIT: this time, I would go for a black theme instead of dark (Amoled user here lol)

Great project.
How are multiple accounts handled?
Do they all appear in folders and unified inbox?
Or are they separated per account?

Is this post a ToDo list:

  • search
  • star?
  • undo?

¿?

For outlook users it would be nice to have the option of "report phishing scam", currently only report spam is available.
For outlook the following options are possible:

I finally left K9 mail after using it for several years.

Curious, which app do you use instead?
I still have not found an open source which allow you to compose inline image attachments.

This allows for configuring receive only or send only too.

It means the app didn't detect a Drafts folder. Can you please send me the debug information?

Just add more accounts using the Accounts navigation menu.
Yes, they will all appear in the folder list and in the unified inbox.
Just try and you'll see.

I want to keep it a generic email app and this is provider specific, so I don't want to add this.
