Review from Danny Tan
Been using K9 for nearly 4 years now very user friendly and has performed all what such App should have. However, right now it allow mail movement to another folders within the same email ID but it would be better if it allow mails to be able to move from different email ID. K9 team please consider as many folks out there believe is using more then I email ID
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.
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.
K9 Ver 5.208 Samsung S7. Been using K9 for several years on older S4 device, loved it. With newer android K9 will not reliably get email. Mostly I have to manually request it. I have tried several of the claimed tips to fix it. I had hoped the claim of the problem being fixed for this version was true. Nope, after a couple of days use, not fixed. I'm tired of fighting it. I really wish it was fixed but I'm wasting my time with it.
The only message I get on this now is "syncing is disabled". Even after reinstall and fresh set up. I do not know why, mail does not update properly, notifications do not work and manual updates are temperamental. I have not amended any settings. Samsung s7, android 7. Time to abandon this app, but not before leaving a 1 star review to let you all know what you are getting into. The ironic thing is, the app will not notify me if this review receives a response. Bye.
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
Pretty basic app, used it for quite a while. Fine when it works but too many issues. Syncing is unreliable. Emails occasionally just disappear, nowhere to be found, after working on them for lengthy periods. The forum to address issues is also the worst in my experience, no search function to search for solutions. Looking for a replacement mail app.
Fixed bug where automatic synchronization wouldn't restart after the device exited doze mode
