Version 1.1469 is available on GitHub now.

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

This version has a redesigned setup screen I like to receive feedback about. The texts are not made translatable yet because it might not be finished yet.

A nice addition IMHO is a dark original message view, which is possible now because newer Android System WebView versions support this (you'll need version 76 or later).

I love the new setup screen - reduction from five items to three! Also the dark original view and the delete button in the search dialog are enrichments.
Two comments about the setup screen:
1. in the manual setup, the German translations of the explanations overlap a bit in the middle (see screenshot - don't get irritated, the yellow sidebar on the right edge comes from Everywhere Launcher).
If you could solve it for the German by moving it slightly outwards, other translations might be even longer, so you might have to limit these fields in the middle, right? If necessary, longer translation texts will be wrapped on two lines.
2) If you have opened the manual setup in order to fine-tune accounts or identities, shouldn't the manual setup still be opened when you are done with the settings and come back via the back button, so that you can continue directly with the settings for the other point?

I guess you have to use a theme which is able the follow the system theme ...

The new dark view is wonderful btw and even though I don't have to use the setup function anymore I was checking out the new setup screen and found it very useful and clear!

@M66B
If you are looking to clean up the Main menu section, why don't you hide the "Done" blocks (i.e. grant permissions an battery optimization) when effectively done with them?
You could add a downward arrow to unhide them or add an option in the Miscellaneous section to revert those settings, which people will rarely do.

Marcel, you could also move the two items to the 'Manual setup and other options' section after they are done - then only the one item would remain.

The idea in itself is good, but for support I need to have a consistent layout. Imagine if I ask somebody to check if battery optimizations are disabled, the answer could be "I can't find it", etc.

Yes, that's right, you would have to add that in case of doubt he has to open the section with the manual setup - just like you always add it with the longpress on support in the main menu ... ;-)

That is why I suggested to have them hidden behind an unfolding arrow

    @M66B, can you help me please to point me to correct direction, as i don't know how to add a second sender email to an existing rule? It is possible this? Anything i have tried, don't work.
    You can either use a regex (see the FAQ) or copy the rule and change the email address. The latter is simpler to maintain and less error prone.

    You can copy a rule by long pressing it in the list.

    Hi, cool new Feature to make the notes more prominent. Appreciate it.

    By applying this to an email I realised following: I copied an email to to be located in two different folders. A color change in the note did not only affect the changed email but also the copied one. Is the copy only a reference or a real copy?
    The copy is a real copy, but notes and colors will be applied to messages with the same message ID.

    Version 1.1551 is available on GitHub now.

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

    There is one new feature which is hidden for now because it is still experimental: using HighestModSeq for a quick check if a sync is necessary on reconnecting. This will probably reduce battery and data usage, especially when there are many reconnects due to an unstable / often changing internet connection. The email server needs to support the CONDSTORE IMAP extension for this. For example Gmail and Dovecot based email servers, like of Disroot.org, do.

    You can enable this option by temporary enabling debug mode in the miscellaneous settings and enabling the MODSEQ option. You can disable debug mode again after this.

    Version 1.1541 is available on GitHub now:

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

    A number of things, like periodically checking for new messages, waking up messages after snoozing, checking if sent messages exist on the email server, etc, were moved either to the sync or send service to comply with new restrictions on foreground services in the upcoming Android 12. This is a significant change, which is why this is an ALPHA VERSION !!!

    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.
