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.

    Unfortunately, software development is much harder than this. It is pretty rare that a solution presents itself. The Play store reviews of past night are not a motivation to continue looking into this either.
    You may dislike this mindset, but sometimes a "won't fix" is okay too too if you deem it's not feasible (e.g. costs you more resources incl. stress and time than it's gain). Especially so, if it's a bug at some edge case most of your users won't be affected from.

    My two cents. Don't overwork yourself in such cases and put your own health first, that includes mental health. Then check your to do list and see what has higher priority for you and the widest majority of your user base. Regardless of a few stupid reviews.

    @cklassen how about using the accent color for the buttons at the end of the fields?
    I added a screenshot of your test version, so everyone can see how it looks like. In terms of consistency it's better because now everyone can see that the icons have different functions. It would be a good thing, if you could apply this change to the next release.
    (too many people hate change)
    I know. You can see that everytime Mozilla changes the UI of Firefox :D

    I have been busy for days to find a hard to find bug and I am giving up for now due to a series of 1 star ratings for reasons which have nothing to do with the app at all. I am tired. Maybe another time. It feels like my effort doesn't matter anyway and a bug is in any case a good reason to rate bad.
    Sorry to hear, that's frustrating. Those 1 star ratings are ridiculous. Not to mention a lot of PEBCAK. Keep in mind they don't even register on the scale. Most positively love this app!

    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.

    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.
