can you please check why the notification light flashes only once when receiving mail. I have no problems with the LED under LOS 16 (https://github.com/cryptomilk/androi...ice_sony_lilac) with other apps.
I would be happy if the LED also works with FairEmail, too.
LineageOS 16 is based on Android 9 Pie. From Android 8 Oreo apps do not have control over notifications anymore after being installed. Apps can only send a notifications, but the appearance of notifications can only be changed by the Andoid app/notification settings (conveniently accessible via the FairEmail notification settings).

What does "Oreo apps" mean in this context? Apps programmed with an older api can control the notification light.
Is that the difference why other apps have no problems even if the LEDs are adjusted in the settings of android (e.g. color, sound)?
The question arises at which point does the program code have to be improved?
Maybe there should have been a comma:
"From Android 8 Oreo, apps do not have control over notifications anymore after being installed"
Apps designed for older Android versions might behave differently, but Google will not allow updates for such apps anymore, see here for the details. Recent Android versions will also show warnings when installing an app designed for older Android versions. In generally this is a sign the app is not supported and maintained anymore.
By chance, I have always narrowed down the problem with the notification light.
If Fairemail has received a mail and the phone is only switched on after FE receives another mail, the LED flashes permanently (rhythm, color), as set in the Android.
Does this indicate a problem with Android or Fairemail?
very good work, I really like the app! Anyway, I have one question: I can't find the `advanced settings` and specifically the option `allow insecure connections` (The option `allow insecure connections` when setting up an account does not work for me and I really need this). Am I completely missing something and just blind or is it hidden somewhere? (https://github.com/M66B/open-source-...-content-faq41) I would really appreciate a reply.
Thanks again for your work!
