Hi Marcel,
I just upgraded to 1.1171 through app store.

When I have the button pressed to just show unread messages then the buttons to go to previous and next msg are created out.

They are there if I turn off the filter.

I can't reproduce this. Is there a previous and/or next unread message?
Previous/next navigation is based on the underlying list, whatever that list is.

Yes there are previous and next unread messages. If unread message filter is on then arrows are gray. if filter is off then arrows are colored.
Please reproduce the issue and send me ASAP the debug info by long pressing 'Support' in the navigation menu (left side menu) of the start screen. Please include a short problem description, indicating the time you opened the conversation as accurately as possible.

Edit: please enable debug logging (not debug mode) in the miscellaneous settings first.

Small bug; If a folder has 'Notify on new messages' on, but not 'Show in unified inbox', then clicking on a new message notification doesn't load the message. It just shows an empty screen.

I have the spam folder set to notify new messages and it isn't (obviously) part of the unified inbox. Opening messages from a new message notification (mostly I mark them as read from the notification) works fine for me. I just double checked.

In any case the option 'Show in unified inbox' is not related to new message notifications and opening messages from a new message notification.

To reproduce, I just set a new folder to 'Notify on new messages' and not 'Show in unified inbox'. Sent myself an email, copied it to that folder from desktop client, and then manually synchronized the folder in FairEmail. The notification showed up, but clicking it led to an empty screen with the loading spinner.

Hello,

Google Translate

I have only recently since and search for a way to disable the query for deleting mails. I only have pop accounts and the mails stay on the server. The message is unnecessary for me and therefore annoys for each deletion of individual mails.

Thanks very much

Loading spinner: can you please send me a screenshot of this?

Maybe stupid: try to restart your device.

View attachment 5378181 It shows the correct account name but not folder name at the top. Phone was just restarted, monthly patch :)
Okay. Please enable debug logging in the miscellaneous settings, reproduce the problem and as soon as the spinner shows, go to the start screen and long press 'Support' in the navigation menu to send me the debug info. Please include a short problem description.

Is there a specific file that would help with the debugging? Looking at all the debug files, there's a bunch of private/personal info, so I'd prefer to exclude stuff that is not necessary.

What I need to see is logcat.txt. You can replace the email addresses, etc, if you are worried.
Please capture the debug info right after reproducing the problem.
There is mostly not more than about 30 seconds in the logcat.

    Confirming msg receipt by a link. So many times I wish I knew if the recipient of my emails had received it. Even though I ask for delivery/ read receipts I rarely get one. I understand that privacy is a concern here but it would be nice to know if someone got/ read your email.
    Why would someone click a link as a read receipt when they can send the built-in read receipt with the same effort (usually just one click)?

    This would also require Marcel to stop sleeping😄. He is already at it 7 days a week with only a few hours of closed eye!
    I sleep every night 8-9 hours like a baby, so no worries about me.

    Because many people use their webmail that very often doesn't handle receive/read receipt.
    And I think that this action must be automatically done when the user opens the mail without asking him to manually click on any link/button.
    So I think too that it would be a great thing.
    However, such an automatism would not go well with the goal of FE, insofar it should already be a conscious click by the recipient.

    As an app that tries to remove tracker pixels, it's quite contradictory to add one yourself IMO. The only way for confirming the receipt ethically is IMO if you put in a clickable link with a clear text such as "confirm that you received this message by clicking on this link" while it is the viewers choice to click the link or not (thus, an opt-in for the recipient). Then again, @fraschi51 is right, the current receipt confirmation should be sufficient here. No need to add an own solution when a standard solution is already implemented.

    Temporary email addresses sound nice, though. Especially so if one can use them to register to services without giving away their own email address, similarly to how Apple does it. For this to work (especially when one forgot the account password and needs to receive an email), the addresses would need to be valid for as long as the user doesn't remove it, but you can utilize aliasing to not create dozens of real email accounts per user.
    It wouldn't be a tracking pixel of course!

    Stopping with improvements wouldn't be fair to the people appreciating my effort, so I will keep improving the GitHub version and reduce the Play store updates to once a month.

    Since it happened too many times to me that I answered a message while a new message arrived making the answer less useful, the next version will show a bottom notification when a new message arrives in the same thread as you are composing a message for. Tapping on 'Show' will open the conversation, so you can quickly check the new message.

    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.
