Push mail has not been working reliably for years, always leading to the error message "Syncing disabled" and tp delayed incoming mail. Why K-9 disables syncing remains unclear. Other email clients, like Thunderbird, do not have any such problem. K-9 also has too many, too complicated settings and some user interface problems. Apart from these problems it is good.
K-9 Mail is having trouble when OpenVPN connect is activated. All other apps and web sites work fine. Even when the VPN is then disconnected on LTE the problem persists. Moving next back to WiFi the problem still persists as well. Only a reboot of the phone seems to help.
Actually, it is a very good email app. The new icon totally sucks and the main developer seems to be completely deaf to users feedback about it. Don't be fooled by the icons you see on the Google play page for k9. It isn't showing the new icon. Even if the old icon doesn't come back, the icon needs a different look from what it is now.
Been using K-9 Mail on my phones since my first Android. Brilliant email app, does everything I need flawlessly. Have to agree with all the other users complaining about the new icon though... it is truly truly awful (Sorry to the dev who designed it!). Any chance we can go back to the old, better-looking icon? Other than that, 5/5, would highly recommend (and often do).
It's a great very versatile app. The only thing I'm wondering about is it's energy consumption. It does wake the CPU quite little and also data usage is not that high compared to others. Yet it consumes quite some power. Any thoughts?
Installed on my s7 Samsung edge, works well but will not poll automatically, says syncing disabled ????? Not sure why they can not fix it. I filed a trouble ticket online but it was ignored. My guess is they can not figure out the syncing disabled problem. JUST FOUND A POSIBLE FIX ON FORUMS. TRYING NOW .....
