Edit: Found it and yes it seems like they want the focus on the free version with mainly just mentions and links to the paid version so deleted my original comment.
I'm sure the press asks pretty much the same questions. Maybe it's worth publishing a press release on your website and nicely pointing them to your statement there might save you some time, if too many journalists are writing to you.I prefer "normal", so I can start developing again, which is at this moment hard given the sheer volume of messages I receive (including press inquiries, that is). What I want to do for myself, to satisfy my perfectionist nature, LOL, and to create opportunities for new features, is to write a new styled text to HTML converter. Currently, the app ships a modified copy of the Android converter , but this is not really ideal. In fact the latest version added some more "hacks" to fix some, but not all, bullet/number lists issues.
Your old and grumpy developer aka drama queen.
It makes me really happy that the discussion with Google led to the continuation of the awesome email client! And I'm also glad that your girlfriend is recovering too.
Did you specifically ask for a response? They may not even bother replying . Just the fact that they approved the release means you are good to go.
Normally, approving apps is an automated process as far as I know, but in this case I should receive direct feedback from Google's privacy and policy team too.
I've only discovered the various drama that have affected both your personal and dev lives because I hadn't been on this forum for months and hadn't updated FE for quite some time (FE is so good and already satisfies my needs well enough that I don't feel the need to upgrade too often). So reading backwards through 40+ pages of this thread was a shock to me.
First, I hope your GF keeps recovering. Life in good health is so precious.
Second, I want to reiterate my strong support to you. FE is by far the best email client out there. I couldn't manage my multiple accounts without it and would be quite desperate/sad should its support end. And you Marcel are the nicest and most dedicated dev I've ever "met" either virtually (through public forums such as XDA) or in person (at my workplace). So, whatever the next steps I want to warmly thank you!
I hope you'll be able to learn how to become insensitive (or less sensitive) to unfair negative comments (this earth is full of as***les and you have no control over this). You should only feed yourself with positive energy received from all the good people who love and respect you and your fantastic work.
You're having a strong positive impact on people: not only the daily happy users of your apps, but also now beyond. Your story has been in the media, and now it's seems that some political parties or lobbies could use your story to encourage the EU increase their support towards independent dev, FOSS, etc...
So now you're reaching a new iconic status, and you'll have to learn to live with it!
Sending more positive energy from France
FairEmail already adjusts colors for the reformatted message view, usingApparently there's a while field of science behind the question of what colors are perceived as light / bright. This article is interesting on the topic:

But this should work too, I think. In the worst case, we can send a few emails with different background colors in a test version before you push an official release. Just to be certain.
