Just move the message back to the inbox.

Please read this FAQ too:

https://github.com/M66B/FairEmail/blob/master/FAQ.md#user-content-faq92

All spam options in FairEmail should be seen as additional to the spam filter of the email server. They wouldn't be necessary if all providers offered proper working spam filters.

@M66B a suggestion that came to me while exploring Android 12 features. Enabling scrolling screenshot, if it adds value (it is enabled only for some apps like WhatsApp etc and not for browsers)

Hi Marcel!
First of all again, thank you so much for your amazing work and support! I'm a happy paying customer since a couple of years and I love your app.

I have a question which I haven't found an answer to yet.
Is it possible to hide the Account Name in the mailbox? I'll try to explain myself better. I have several email accounts set up, and I read emails from them separatly. I have assigned a different color for each one and in the main view I have the list of each account. So I click one, open the Incoming folder and read emails.
In the emails list header I have 4 rows: Sender, Object, Name of my account, Text Preview.

I would like to hide the line which contains the Name of My Account. I know which account I am in and I don't need to see it there, I think it just adds clutter to the view. I have looked around in settings but haven't found a way to do that.
Is it possible?

Dank je wel!

Hello, I have a relatively simple question: I have 3 accounts. 2 of them I want to periodicially sync once a day the other account I want to periodicially sync every 4 or 8 hours. How can I set this up?

I tried it the following way: Settings - Receive - When is put to "Every day". For the one account i wanted a higher checking freqeunce I went to the Settings - Main - Manual setup and account options - Accounts - Then the account which i wanted to have a sync every 4 hours - Advanced - Keep alive interval at for example 240 minutes. The setting at Edit properties for my Inbox at "synchronize" and "Check periodicially instead of continuous sync" - 1x240 minutes are activated. Unfortunately it does not work as I thought because it still syncs only every day. I looked around in the app and the FAQ but couldn't manage to get the correct solution for it.

My version is the current playstore version 1.1759.

There is no account name in the message header when viewing a conversation, only a folder name. The account name is the subtitle at the top.

If you mean the account/folder name in the message list, try to switch to compact mode via the three-dots menu.

Oh yes, sorry, that's what I meant!
I tried the compact view and it hides it correctly. The thing is that I prefer the normal view, I find it has better spacing in general. So, if that's the only way to hide the Account name in the message list, is it possible to edit compact view to have the same spacing as normal view?

Please change the keep alive interval back.

What you want is not possible. You can mix push messages and periodically checking for messages with one interval only. Different intervals for different accounts are not (yet?) possible.

You could do this with an automation app though, please see this FAQ:

You'll have to choose between normal and compact mode.

Whether the message was replied to, forwarded, classified, is snoozed, has attachments, the number of messages in the conversation thread, etc.
Nice! I still think that being able to hide it would give a more polished aspect to the mail list view, but it's not such a big deal and if it's useful for other purposes I'm fine with it.
Thank you for everything Marcel!

    It is time for a new, modern, open source, privacy friendly email client for Android.

    I have just released a first alpha version for feedback on the design and features.

    Not for production use yet!

    Most of the stuff basically works, but be prepared for crashes and error notifications.


    Safe email is a working name, but it is for several reasons not a convenient name, so suggestions for a name are welcome.

    I have just released alpha version 0.15

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

    With a bit of luck the next version can be a beta version.

    I am putting a lot of effort into this project, so thanks are appreciated.

    I have just released alpha version 0.10

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

    I have put many hours into developing and debugging this release, so thanks are appreciated.

    This version is still not suitable for production, but all basic functions are present now. The goal is now to stabilize this version into a first beta release, so please let me hear what problems you have.

    Edit: due to database changes you'll need to setup your accounts/identities again.

    I have just released beta version 1.745

    Changelog/download:
    https://github.com/M66B/FairEmail/releases

    The changelog might seem uninteresting, but in fact displaying messages has been rewritten to introduce inline displaying of original messages. I spent about two days developing and testing this, so at least a "thanks" will be appreciated.

    Some background: normally the web view cannot be used in a scrolling list (of messages in a conversation) and although there exist several workarounds for this, none were satisfactory. However, I had a completely novel idea (as far as I know) about how to approach this without the usual edge cases (hopefully) !

    To do: investigate if using a dark background is feasible (setting the background dark is simple, but the challenge is to modify the message so that everything is still readable). I will consider to add an option to always display original messages.

    Please report any problem you discover, so it can be fixed.
