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.

    Hello, I have a relatively simple question: I have 3 accounts. 2 of them I want to periodicially sync once a day the other account I want to periodicially sync every 4 or 8 hours. How can I set this up?

    I tried it the following way: Settings - Receive - When is put to "Every day". For the one account i wanted a higher checking freqeunce I went to the Settings - Main - Manual setup and account options - Accounts - Then the account which i wanted to have a sync every 4 hours - Advanced - Keep alive interval at for example 240 minutes. The setting at Edit properties for my Inbox at "synchronize" and "Check periodicially instead of continuous sync" - 1x240 minutes are activated. Unfortunately it does not work as I thought because it still syncs only every day. I looked around in the app and the FAQ but couldn't manage to get the correct solution for it.

    My version is the current playstore version 1.1759.
    Please change the keep alive interval back.

    What you want is not possible. You can mix push messages and periodically checking for messages with one interval only. Different intervals for different accounts are not (yet?) possible.

    You could do this with an automation app though, please see this FAQ:

    Hi Marcel!
    First of all again, thank you so much for your amazing work and support! I'm a happy paying customer since a couple of years and I love your app.

    I have a question which I haven't found an answer to yet.
    Is it possible to hide the Account Name in the mailbox? I'll try to explain myself better. I have several email accounts set up, and I read emails from them separatly. I have assigned a different color for each one and in the main view I have the list of each account. So I click one, open the Incoming folder and read emails.
    In the emails list header I have 4 rows: Sender, Object, Name of my account, Text Preview.

    I would like to hide the line which contains the Name of My Account. I know which account I am in and I don't need to see it there, I think it just adds clutter to the view. I have looked around in settings but haven't found a way to do that.
    Is it possible?

    Dank je wel!
    There is no account name in the message header when viewing a conversation, only a folder name. The account name is the subtitle at the top.

    If you mean the account/folder name in the message list, try to switch to compact mode via the three-dots menu.

    Ah interesting, like what?
    Whether the message was replied to, forwarded, classified, is snoozed, has attachments, the number of messages in the conversation thread, etc.

    Nice! I still think that being able to hide it would give a more polished aspect to the mail list view, but it's not such a big deal and if it's useful for other purposes I'm fine with it.
    Thank you for everything Marcel!
    There is a configurable padding on my to do list, but it won't be high priority.

    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.

    A documented reason why privacy friendly apps are pretty important:


    The most common tracking library on Android is Google Play Services (in 87.3 per cent of apps)

    None of my apps contain any tracking library!

    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.
