Hi :)

On Thunderbird there is the option to keep the folders structure when archiving messages. Could this be possible also with FairEmail?

Thanks!
I am not sure what you mean. Archiving messages is done by moving messages to the archive folder. The folder structure is stored in the email server and the app will follow this.

I am not sure if this the right place to ask for new features.

When "showing the original message ..." in addition the check-boxes "do not ask ... email-address" could there be a box or option to allow any message from *@server or just server.

For example if I get and email from [email protected] I could elect to elect to allow from any sender at mybank.com.

TIA
I am not sure if this is a good idea. Not all addresses of the same domain name, for example *@gmail.com, will be trustworthy, which could lead to enabling the less safe original message view when this is not desired.

I will put this on my to do list and think some more about it.

Version 1.1461 is available on GitHub now.

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

Since Android language detection is still broken on Android 11 and doesn't seem to get fixed, I have added the Compact Language Detector v3 instead, which makes language detection available for all devices and all Android versions. Since the neural network is embedded in the app, the APK size is about 3 MB more.

You can enable language detection in the behavior settings.

If you want to detect the language of existing messages, you can clear local messages and synchronize the messages again by long pressing a folder in the folder list.

Actually if i select the option to mantain folders structure when archiving, Thunderbird automatically creates the same folder structure for the message into the Archive folder.

If i archive a message that's in "Inbox-->folder" and i archive the message then i will find the message in "Archive-->Inbox-->folder".

I have lot of subfolders for my inboxes so it could allow a really better management of the archived messages.

I tested this feature on Thunderbird and i saw that it actually create the folders it needs under the Archive folder, also on the server, not only on my local PC.

I see, but I am not going to add this to FairEmail because it is the rather complex and few people will use this. Note that it isn't always possible to create folders and that some servers reject this due to security policies. In other words, this would inevitably lead to more support questions, of which I already get plenty (think thousands each month).

The updated theme count is:
  • blue/orange light 3
  • blue/orange system 3
  • red/green inverted dark 3
  • red/green inverted system 2
  • black 4
  • black/white 1
  • grey dark 3
  • grey system 1
It looks like the default blue/orange is the favorite, although the red/green inverted seems to be appreciated too.

Note that you can now select the theme via the three-dots overflow menu of the start screen.

I agree, there are risks associated with this idea. However, I think the benefits out weigh them.
You are the developer the decision is yours. Do not do anything which you feel might put the reputation of your stella software at risk!
Your appreciatively

I think black themes matter ;)

hi all, I bought the Pro version, I have both imap and pop accounts, I wanted to know if there is a system on the POP account to enter emails as spam. thanks
The POP3 protocol gives access to the inbox only, so there is no way to move messages to the spam folder and to report spam. So, it is not possible to train the email server to recognize spam. People using a POP3 account often complain about spam for this reason. When the POP3 protocol was designed, in 1988, there was no spam yet.
