How about put the message in the non-pro version with an option to remove or modify it.

I'm searching how to put such a message as we speak.

Setup > Manage identities > Tap an identity > Signature

Maybe that could be set to a default too to promote FairEmail. I will think about that.

Edit: maybe "Sent with a privacy friendly email app: FairEmail" ?

Bluemail has that.
It is easy to turn off, but many people are too lazy . . .

If you insert a corresponding note in every mail sent with FairEmail by default, then it should be separated from the actual mail text by a "correct" signature - and then I would have to remove my own signature again ...

The signature will be set to a default on adding a new identity, also when using the quick setup, and existing signatures will be left alone.

I am not sure yet if existing empty signatures should be replaced by a default.

The default text is already available for translation on Crowdin.

Marcel, if you want to introduce a default signature - whether for new identities or empty signatures of existing identities - I think you have to
1. ask the user, like this: I would like to make FairEmail better known and therefore put the following text in the signature under each e-mail you write with this identity "...". Is that o.k. for you? YES / NO.
2. completely rewrite the signature handling. Because with a central, program-side signature, this would not only have to be displayed to the user in the draft, but he would also have to be able to edit it for individual e-mails or delete it completely. This editing of the signature would then of course also have to be saved in the same way (in the outbox) and would not then be replaced by the default signature when sending.

I would suggest taking some time to answer questions related to Email on Stack Exchange Android Enthusiasts. It does have a decent readership but more importantly draws tons of Google search results (I am saying this with the knowledge of being a moderator in the past and having insight into facts) . Without revealing percentages, let me assure you that Google search is #1 draw to the site, miles ahead of other options. And while you are at it, you can address XPrivacyLua related aspects too

I would have done it but my on line activities are severely restricted for other reasons

Signature idea discussed later in the thread stinks. No offense to anyone. It will only help you getting negative comments. Folks who care will support you anyway, and those who don't have another stick to bash you with.

In quick setup, user should choose what to put.
I recommend making it clear what signature would be so that user are not taken by surprise when they see it.
Which is also why I do not think having signature added to users with empty signatures. As all of a sudden signature will start appearing.
