thank you kindly for a quick reply and exact answer i was searching for!
i´m not sure about my google accounts have been deleted.
both of them are fine and working well, one of them belongs to my phone.
i´ll try to delete both of them from FM and register them again.
hope it helps.
anyway, once again thanks for your help and best of luck!

update:
it seems , that the problem has been fixed.
This error means the on-device Google account was deleted. This account is necessary to authenticate, hence the authentication failure. The alternative is to use an app password, please see this FAQ:

Please see here about how to delete an account:

Version 1.1553 is available on GitHub now.

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

@The_Two shared messages will have a link back to the message in FairEmail now, but only if the target app supports HTML links.

@Flexmaen AW: and Wg: should be removed now.
Hello Marcel,

I have checked the feature and the link is generated and works, but as you mentioned not in Google calendar app. Perhaps because it does not state that it accepts HTML.

I have created an entry with HTML and
the Google calendar app does render HTML in the description part. HTML link can be accessed.

But when the description is edited in the calendar app the HTML part is discarded and the link appears in plain text.
Even as such, it would be nice if it would be possible to get the message link into the calendar entry or as HTML snippet into the clipboard to add it manually.

Does someone know a calendar app that really can handle HTML in the description?

I translated the alternative 'Re:' to 'AW:' but I don't know what MS use instead of 'Fwd:' .... perhaps @Flexmaen knows it.
I see that there are both 'AW:' and 'Aw:' ist that equal?

Thank you very much.

"AW:" and "Aw:" is the same (usually it's with capital letters, i did find one "Aw" in my inbox though).
"Fwd:" is "WG:"

Sorry for moaning, but every project seems to use it's own tools, sometimes it's easier to get into it, sometimes not.

Upper or lower case doesn't matter for the removal process.

Does it work as expected with the latest release?

Emails containing inline attachments appear with this box (screenshot).
Is there a setting that would automatically always show inline attachments so I don't need to click on the box every time?

Or would that be a security risk?

Thanks.

Wow, this is great, thanks.

I did some tests with mails I had in my Inbox:

Original subjectwhen replyingwhen forwarding
Fwd: Fwd: WG:Re: Fwd: Fwd: WG:Fwd:
AW: WG:Re: WG:Fwd: AW: WG:
AW: AW: AW: AW:Re:Fwd: AW: AW: AW: AW:
Fwd: WG:Re: Fwd: WG:Fwd:
Re: Fwd:Re: Fwd:Fwd: Re: Fwd:
WG:Re: WG:Fwd:

So we see this works fine.
However, replying is not fixing Fwd: mess and vice versa. Is this something that makes sense, too?

Well, then of course it would be the same for the national language. However, you get this information from the content of the email at the latest, don't you?

    Version 1.1667 is available on GitHub now and in the Play store test program after Google's approval.

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

    @jmh2002 @deechte there is a new behavior option to auto close conversations on marking a message in a conversation unread. Please let me know if this was what you were looking for.

    This article describes why digitally resigning apps isn't a good idea:


    In the meantime Google has made an exception for existing apps for this. So, FairEmail isn't affected by this for now.

    - I've tried various combinations of Behaviour settings but when there is only 1 message in a conversation, and after reading it I then Mark Unread from the email body, FairEmail returns to the Conversation (where there is only 1 email), instead of returning directly back to the the Conversations List like I thought should happen. Is this my error in settings, or is it by design, or is it a bug?
    I agree with you that this is indeed not what one would expect. I dislike it too.

    I think most of us lovers of FairEmail are worried about the same thing.
    Unlike AquaMail, FairEmail is open source.

    Besides that I am a fan of my own app ;-)

    Version 1.1662 is available on GitHub now and in the Play store test program after Google's approval.

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

    There is a new behavior option to change the swipe left/right sensitivity. There are 10 'stops' and the default sensitivity is 7, which is a bit less than it used to be. I like to know if this is a good default setting. There should be a balance between sensitivity and accidentally swiping a message to the trash or archive folder (or whatever the swipe action is configured to do).

    The sensitivity is represented by the velocity (speed) of swiping (slow/fast) and the stops represent in fact a multiplication factor for the velocity threshold.

    Version 1.1646 is available on GitHub now and in the Play store test program after Google's approval.

    Changelog/download:

    A notable addition is support for Brand Indicators for Message Identification (BIMI), which you can enable in the display settings. When there is a BIMI DNS record and SPF, DKIM and DMARC are passing, a check mark will be shown before the sender's name. This will work for for example Booking.com.

    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.
