Like it so far No fault in the app but Google has blocked me from signing into my Gmail account because this app doesn’t meet the security requirements. Sure that’s just an excuse for them to get me to download the Gmail app.
Defacto is a bit disappointing It's a well known mail client for a long time - almost the defacto standard for 3rd party Android mail clients perhaps. But it feels like it needs an interface overhaul. Just feels a bit dated and stale. Functionality is good but for me I found connectivity to exchange by owa far slower than other clients I've tried. Also it seems unable to deal properly with nested folders. Some folders I've been unable to see at all.
Push notifications don't seem to work reliably. I can see open IMAP connections to the server but it won't report new messages. Doing a manual "fetch" will eventually retrieve new messages but takes an inordinate amount of time. Disabling power saving features doesn't help. Android 6.0.1 on Nexus 6P.
I'd like to use it but... Seems it doesn't want to accept my works email exchange account. Keeps saying a valid url for the exchange account could not be found. It's funny because plenty of other email apps don't have a problem. And why are the time and date on the emails so far behind the actual time and date? Get it sorted, K9!
Awesome app, but unable to star emails I've used this ever since i got my first android phone over five years ago, and love it. The only thing that could be better is a fix for starring emails - when tapping the star on an email, it scrolls the interface instead.
Rapid sync, no clutter, privacy Thanks to the developers for this wonderful application which replaces my android stock app. I almost gave up on finding a mail app which doesn't ask for a ton of permissions until I found K9. A few minor suggestions for improvements: It should be possible to move mails to folders of different accounts, and generally the moving of mails could still be simplified. Another desirable feature would be a rapid delete gesture and an undo button for the last move/delete action.
