Discussion: should forwarding a message start a new conversation or is it part of the existing conversation?

My point of view is that forwarding a message starts a new conversation. The original participants of the conversation don't see the messages of the new conversation after all.

There could even be as privacy concern when not starting a new conversation:

I love these new quick actions, the delete helps me a ton everyday.

Would adding Mark as Read/Unread be an option you'd think about adding? Or maybe having the ability to select which options you want to see.

I know there is a lot of talk about people thinking there are too many setting and all the BS, but having options/settings to customize the app to your liking is what truly makes FairEmail one of the best app out there.

Marking messages read this way is a good idea, so:

I disagree, for me forwarding a message means making the new participant part of the original conversation.

For starting a new conversation one should use Edit as new, which should also address the privacy concerns you mention.

First step is to move the messages back to the inbox. If there is a block sender rule in the app, it will be cancelled this way. It also trains the email server to consider similar messages not as spam anymore.

I left the beta program last week and am just staying with the Play Store version. The app is working fine for me, but I am not seeing the latest versions the Play Store. The latest installed version I have is: 1.1887a, and that matches what I see in the Store. Is Google just being slower than normal or is it something else?

There will be a new pubic Play store release about once a month only because 1 star ratings like "Too many updates" are rather frustrating.

You can join the Play store test program to get more updates:

The next version will have configurable quick actions. You can select:
  • Set low importance (new)
  • Mark as read
  • Add star (new)
  • Move to inbox
  • Archive
  • Report spam
  • Trash

Is there any other action which you use commonly?

    The next version will have a new option in the privacy settings tab page to remove tracking parameters from links by default. Since removing tracking parameters can lead to links that do not work anymore, this will be done only when showing the link confirmation dialog, so that removing tracking parameters can be disabled always again if needed.

    I have cooled down again, after a good night's sleep. Supporters will still be treated with "priority", meaning interesting features will still be implemented if requested.

    How was the call with Google today, Marcel?

    Google was pretty friendly and cooperative and told me the favicons are indeed the problem, and it can/should be fixed by updating in the privacy policy to "disclose how your app accesses, collects, uses, and shares user data":

    Privacy Policy​

    All apps must post a privacy policy in both the designated field in Play Console and within the app itself. The privacy policy must, together with any in-app disclosures, comprehensively disclose how your app accesses, collects, uses, and shares user data, not limited by the data disclosed in the Data Safety section. This must include:
    • developer information and a privacy point of contact or a mechanism to submit inquiries
    • disclosing the types of personal and sensitive user data your app accesses, collects, uses, and shares; and any parties with which any personal or sensitive user data is shared
    • secure data handling procedures for personal and sensitive user data
    • the developer’s data retention and deletion policy
    • clear labeling as a privacy policy (e.g., listed as “privacy policy” in title)
    The entity (e.g., developer, company) named in the app’s Google Play listing must appear in the privacy policy or the app must be named in the privacy policy. Apps that do not access any personal and sensitive user data must still submit a privacy policy.

    Please make sure your privacy policy is available on an active URL (no PDFs) and is non-editable.

    So, I have updated the privacy policy and added this new table:

    https://github.com/M66B/FairEmail/blob/master/PRIVACY.md#summary-of-shared-data

    I am not sure if it covers everything, so feedback is more than welcome. @mkasimd maybe you can take a look?

    Note that I have also enabled BIMI, Gravatars, Libravatars and favicons for the Play store version again.

    The short term goal is to release a Play store test version (and associated GitHub version) and to get the update approved. I will think about the next steps after this has been accomplished. Given the huge number of supportive messages I received (much appreciated!) the project will be continued in some form in any case.

    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

    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.
