Thanks very much @M66B!*- I just purchased the pro features via the Google Play Store to ensure that it will survive ROM updates, different phones, etc.

Same for me, using mailbox.org and v0.26. Do you still need a log file?

Edit: I mean the message "Attempt to invoke virtual method 'int java.lang.String.lenght()'"

I have just released beta version 0.27

Changelog/download:
https://github.com/M66B/open-source-email/releases

This version will be available in the Play store too after Google's approval.

@geronimoge the bug you wanted to report should be fixed in this version.

This version fixes all reported bugs and adds two new big features: Gmail OAauth and standard answers.

Gmail OAuth is available as 'Select account' in the account dialog. If needed you are requested to grant the GET_ACCOUNTS permission, which seems to be illogically grouped under READ_CONTACTS. If you have already granted READ_CONTACTS permission or if you are using Android O or later, no permissions are required and requested (although I have not been able to test this because my Nexus 5x "ist kaput", so reports if this works properly on Android O/P are very welcome). Hopefully this new feature stops the questions about how to login to Gmail.

The FAQ lists all the mandatory and optional permissions and the reason why they are needed:
https://github.com/M66B/open-source-...er/FAQ.md#FAQ1

As you can image, I get a lot of email. As you likely know, I prefer to answer questions in a personal way. However, lots of the same questions are asked over and over again, so it is rather convenient for me to have at least a standard answer template, so I don't have to type more or less the same response over and over again. I guess many of you have an application for standard answers in more or less the same fashion as well. Standard answers will be a pro feature in the next release. Should 'standard answer' be called 'standard replies' ?

The goal is to work to a first stable version now, so bigger new features have to wait.

XDA thanks, donations and purchases are appreciated.

So in my main email account I use a lot of folders on (It's a vanity domain hosted on Google Apps, so I'm using Gmail as my provider). I have FairEmail set to sync several folders, but yet when I open them from the app, it shows no message, even though there are definitely messages in them, even from today (For most of them I have it set to sync seven days, which is the default). Is there any way to force a folder refresh via pull down or some other method? I tried turning off WiFi and Mobile Data, waiting a few minutes then turning it back on, but that didn't help. I'm running version 0.27.

First of all consider to send me a log file (via 'about').

You can force refresh folders by long pressing a folder since a few versions.

long pressing on the folder does nothing - debug info sent. Thanks!
It just shows a cloud with a line through it and no messages in the folder.

Just have a little patience. There is a wait to reconnect to not overflow the server with requests (and to be locked out). I have already made a change to make this smoother in the next version because the wait is not necessary in all circumstances.

Edit: see the legend about what the cloud with a line through it means.

It is also on my to do list to show if a folder is syncing.
