Review from Anthony Carter
I've been using K9 for over 3 years now, as a POP3 client, most recently on my Samsung S8 and have found no problems at all. Nice little app has all the features I need including the setting of an alias return email address to my domain account.
Latest update youtube emails no longer show images. Best free one I've found for more than two email accounts. Good amount of customization and dark theme. Two requests: on LG V10 can't set a sepparate notification sound and can't add addresses to my gmail address book from (to allow always show images) inside the app.
Won't sync with my Gmail accounts over open wifi networks. Every time it tries to I get a security alert and a recorded login attempt from somewhere random within the United States. This does not occur with my other non-gmail account. This issue has persisted for a year and has never been fixed. I put up with it for a long time, but now I'm switching to Blackberry Hub, which handles Gmail just fine. No other email client I've ever used has had this issue with Gmail.
After the last update: REALLYYYY? NO SELF SIGNED CERTIFICATES? NO EXCEPTIONS? NO PERMANENT ADDITION OF MY (free) CERTIFICATES? Can't say anything good about this so I will not say anything. My previous review: AWESOME EMAIL CLIENT!!!! Keep up the good work and please put in the next updates a link or something where people can donate or somehow appreciate your awesome work!!!
Sync does not seem to work with Android version 7+ on my Note 8 so it does not always automatically push emails. However I was able to find a workaround to get it to work by turning the battery optimize setting off for K9 by doing the following: 1) Go to Andriod Settings- Battery. 2) Click on the "Battery Usage box toward the top center of the screen. 3) Click the Menu (Three vertical dots in upper right). 4)Click on Optimize Battery Usage. 5)Select "All Apps" from the drop down arrow at the top of the screen. 6)Scroll to K-9 Mail and toggle it Off
I got this app to consolidate emails and to get away from Google. But Google is listed as one of the authors! Anyway, 2 stars because a day after i got this app one of my emails blocked a sign in attempt from San Francisco. No other changes were made to the emails besides deleting everything after creating email backups. Seems like this app caused a security issue.. Nothing is safe
Have used K9 for years and loved it. Now, as many of you I have the sync disabled amd emails dont get pushed through unless manually do it. I rated it a 2 in hopes that this will be fixed. Would love to keep it over others but it has become a deal breaker. Fixing the battery optimization has not worked. I am on the S8+
Fixed bug where automatic synchronization wouldn't restart after the device exited doze mode
