Used to be the best mail app I used but the latest update has changed how notifications work. Instead of going straight to an account's inbox it just goes to a list of folders instead which means an extra tap... An option would have been great for any UI changes. Reading mail was a lot quicker before this. It's also getting quite buggy... Emptying trash doesn't free up space any more. Either numbers not updating or it's really not being freed. Sometimes an old email gets marked as unread or suddenly my emails are duplicated... Some aesthetic update wouldn't hurt like some icons.
I've used this app for several years and the fact I could easily set it up for multiple self hosted accounts was initially what drew me to it. Lately I've noticed all too often connections are not released on the server end and due to that ill have to ditch K9 for something else. If that issue could be resolved I may come back
Latest update makes it a PITA to get my mail. It says its "loading" them but it just hangs. Tough to be more useless as an email app really. I gave 2 stars because I used it for years and has always worked great. Uninstalled.
Will not let me set up gmail accounts. Not even using manual setup. Tells me my username or password is wrong; it's not. No problem with setting up yahoo accounts though. Turned on Allow Access settings in Gmail. but k9 still can't get past the first stage of set up for it
Great when it works, but for the past few weeks it has stopped syncing, it says syncing disabled at the top but all the settings are correct. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling to no avail. Missing important e-mails when they come in due to this, and having to constantly manually refresh the email in order the check for messages. Also opening messages has slowed significantly, even just plain text messages take 20-30 seconds to load. Would be five stars if not for these issues.
Sync with mail server has become dysfunctional since latest app update. It will start sync and stay stuck in sync mode until I force stop the app and restart it. This has rendered the app useless. Worked great for past 3 years now it's a wreck!
