Exactly, it's a list to block something. I would assume that I can enable such a list BEFORE I get spam. But your implementation let it look like that I have to receive one spam mail first. This means I can enable it AFTER I receive spam. This concept is weird in my opinion.
You can activate the feature in the settings beforehand. The switch has ALSO been added to the spam dialogue as an additional comfort option.

@M66B, just an improvement idea. If I understand correctly, the blocklist option will leave the message in the inbox but add a flag to it, right? How about auto-moving it to spam with the classified icon, showing it was moved by FairEmail?

Gravatar support wil be removed from the Play store version of the app in the next release. According to Google there is no privacy policy for the Play store listing and in the app, which is non sense, but I am not going to argue with Google about this because none of my earlier arguments with Google were taken seriously.

Moreover, Gravatar support is disabled by default and includes a clear privacy warning.

I make some requests on some features that I would like to be present in FairEmail: maybe they already are there and I don't know how to set them!

1) To select one or more messages, I must use long pressure for the first message and then a single tap for other messages. Would it be possible to introduce a sort of quick selection by tapping on the icon to the left of the message?

2) When one or more messages are selected, this button / menu is activated:

From this I can access the possible actions that can be applied to the selected messages. Would it be possible to introduce a bar with 2 or 3 actions similar to this one?

A sort of "quick action bar"...
It would be nice if the actions in the bar were user configurable.
This would allow you to apply actions quickly "saving" a tap ...
Thanks for your attention.

Tapping the contact icon already navigates to the contact info (if available). Also, multiple selection works generally this way, which is what people are used to.

A navigation bar would take space from the messages list, which I think is not nice of you are selecting multiple messages. Moreover, the possible actions depend on the selected messages (folder, accounts, etc) and this can't be evaluated in real-time because this would could cause stuttering, which is why this is done on tapping the action button only.

The "quick action bar" should only appear after selecting one or more messages (just like with the current button).
Also, if the bar were to hide an element, the list would still remain scrollable, as it currently is.
Finally the bar that I showed in my previous post (which is the one that FairEmail displays in a message) in my mobile is very thin and does not take up much space.

My request was for the messages list in one folder, not all other lists.
The actions I have in mind (move to trash, mark as read, ...) should be applicable to all selected messages...

Move to trash is available only when there is a trash folder. The POP3 protocol can access the inbox only for example. The folder you are in determines the actions too. Generally, this is not as simple as you might think.

tl;d;r there are good reasons why it is like it is. In fact, changing this would mean removing features.

Besides that, the the navigation bar would take vertical space as already explained.

Hello,

I am a new and unterested user of fairemail - thanks for this great open source app.

I use posteo.net as an email provider. I met an issue with from the app sent emails. They do not appear in the sent folder, nor elsewhere. Actually I have no sent message stored.

There is no issue with from the website or from Thunderbird sent email : they do appear in sent folder.

I did not find any setting to choose the folder for sent email, or any clue to a solution.

Could you please give a hand ?

    Version 1.1727 is available on GitHub now.

    Download:
    https://github.com/M66B/FairEmail/releases

    We all hate spam, therefore blocking senders is done by creating special entries in the local contact database now, instead of using filter rules, so it can be a free feature. You can see the entries via the manage button in the send settings. There is a new filter option in the three dots overflow menu of the local contacts list to filter spam entries as well.

    Another change is that the background of the original message view will follow the background of the current theme (dark/light) now. In the horizontal three-dots message menu there is a menu item to override a dark background if it is necessary to view the message with a light background. It is possible to add a button for this as well, so you can quickly switch.

    Verifying S/MIME signatures failed if the sender didn't strip trailing spaces from the encoded message content. PGP requires this, but S/MIME oddly enough doesn't, but FairEmail "fixed" this in both cases. Hopefully, removing the fix for S/MIME will not result in other signatures failing.

    I usually don't need the section with the (other) collection folders and therefore I usually don't have it expanded. For me it would be better if - like in the past - waiting mails were visible in the outbox in the same way and at the same time with possibly still open processes.
    You can still see waiting messages at the bottom right in message lists.

    I think it is more consistent to move the outbox, which is for all accounts, to the unified folders section. Moreover, the quick navigation folders have been moved under the accounts, which is why there can be one section less in the navigation menu now.

    I noticed today (don't know from which version this behavior is) that tapping 'open with' on an internet link no longer offers me - as it used to - my 10 or so different apps that are able to do this, but only the same default app, which also opens after pressing 'o.k.'. Can this be?
    "Open with" will hand over the link to Android.

    I guess this might help:

    Version 1.1719 is available on GitHub now and in the Play store test program after Google's approval.

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

    Like most previous recent releases this is a maintenance release. There is one new feature: tapping on the folder name in the message header when viewing a conversation/message will navigate to the folder. This feature is not available in the Play store version yet.
    13
    Version 1.1720 is available on GitHub now.

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

    Tapping on the folder name in conversation threads has been changed into long pressing the folder name to prevent interference with expanding/collapsing messages.
    12
    Since the app is pretty stable and pretty feature complete, I am going to concentrate on solving practical problems (bugs and small missing features) for the time being.

    Version 1.1721 is available on GitHub now.

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

    This is mostly a maintenance release. Sophos Email Appliance links will be decoded now, so you can see which link you'll open, avoiding the proxy server. Some businesses use this. Note that this can be used to track you too.

    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.
