Privacy friendly email app
Version: 1.159
Added: 30-08-2018
Updated: 17-11-2018

This email app might be for you if your current email app:

  • takes long to receive or show messages
  • can manage only one email address
  • cannot show conversations
  • cannot work offline
  • looks outdated
  • is not maintained
  • stores your email on their servers
  • is closed source, potentially violating your privacy

This app is minimalistic by design, so you can concentrate on reading and writing messages.

This app starts a foreground service with a low priority status bar notification to make sure you'll never miss new email.
