K-9 Mail which is an open-source email client. Recently I've been playing with K-@ which is derived from K-9 but a bit more modern.
K9 mail and open keychain work perfectly, with all 5 mail accounts i have :)
K-9 mail (also on F-Droid) is quite reliable for me, though many people find the appearance a bit lacking.
K9 and FairEmail are open source, free, and they don't send your data to any 3rd party servers (unlike Spark, Bluemail, etc.).
OpenKeychain, as posted by /u/hpka, integrates quite well with K9 for email.
If you specifically want that key to work with Text Apps, I think you will have to copy/paste from OpenKeychain.
Otherwise, use an encrypted Text App like WhatsApp
I switched from Blue mail to K-9 Mail recently. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fsck.k9
Allows for manual sync and offers PGP support. Could look a little.more up to date but its function over form works.
K9-Mail Material Design
Both open source
You should have a look atK-9 Mail. It may not exactly be a simple client, but it has tons of functions, is very relieable, completley free, has no Ads AND is open-source. If you are willing to do a bit of tinkering, this is imo the best mail app currently available.
> I have always used the outlook client. Is that still a good idea
I'd recommend swapping over to Thunderbird instead if you want to use an email client. Yes, it'll take a little getting used to because Outlook is a smooth piece of software with a very nice UI but it's still fairly invasive and most likely sends, at a minimum, meta data back to them regarding your emails.
As for Android, K-9 Mail is the most often recommended in terms of privacy. I'm sure there are others but I'm not an Android users so I haven't really looked into it much. Here's the link for for K-9. You can download it on either Play Store or F-Droid, whichever you use.
I don't entirely get your point. You're worried about the client's privacy, but not worried about continuing to use the email services (e.g. Outlook) themselves? Or which accounts do you use then?
K9 is an open source client, a bit rudimentary. I think there's a more material looking beta if you join the beta/alpha program.
And for actually secure email, see Protonmail and Tutanota.
Check out K-9 mail. I used it for a couple years and push email worked flawlessly. Only reason I don't use it anymore is because my work switched hosted exchange provider.
A couple of free options that will not compromise privacy ...
Your phone may have a built-in email app provided by the manufacturer. For example, Samsung and LG usually provide their own email app. Other brands may or may not.
You can also check out K-9. It is open source and free. [link]
If those don't meet your needs, then consider buying AquaMail, MailDroid or Nine.
K-9 Mail is the way to go. It does essentially everything a desktop IMAP client does, plus it has a system for defining the level of notification for any given folder.
Be sure to change the default signature, though.
K-9 Mail, though I prefer using Inbox or the regular GMail app for GMail.
Try adding a new line after "-----BEGIN PGP MESSAGE-----" and before "-----END PGP MESSAGE-----" (better: copy it with new lines intact, if possible).
Additionally, I'd suggest using K-9 as your email app and Thunderbird with Enigmail on your Windows machine as they both support PGP/Inline and should simplify the process of decrypting considerably.
Edit: And while your switching Apps, have a look at OpenKeychain, an APG fork.
K9-Mail has a "BCC all messages to" option under Account Settings>Sending mail>Composition Defaults.
I use this for my email client, pretty happy with it.
K-9 Mail has the option to disable quoting of the original message. But the UI is still not updated to Material Design (but they are working on it as far as I know).
K-9 Mail is what I use, and it has a "Quiet Time" feature. There are Global Settings and Account Settings; so you'd enter to Global Settings > Notifications > Quiet Time (to disable any ring, sound, flash), and then you'd set the Start and End times. You can also enable "Disable notifications" so that not even an envelope appears at the mobile's Notifications/Status bar.
I haven't used it in a few years, but K9 Mail should be able to do that. You can read through their online documentation if you want to check it out.
You would have to run one of these to have it trigger Tasker.
K-9 Mail – Android Apps on Google Play - [link]
Aqua Mail - email app – Android Apps on Google Play - [link]
K9 is free. I am not sure if Aqua's tasker support is part of the free package.
Yup, as is K-9 Mail as well, but I'm not sure if both Notable Plus and K-9 Mail on F-Droid are still streets ahead of the ones on the Play Store like they used to be.
For mobile (Android): K9-Mail. First setup might be confusing, however, it's really powerful and has a tidy interface.
For Desktop/Laptop(Windows/Linux/OSX): Thunderbird Very easy setup, very comfortable to use. If you want all of your mails in one place, not just one program you have to change View->Folders to "unified" instead of "all". Then you get one big mailbox for all you accounts.
Both K9 and Thunderbird are completly free and open source software.
Gotcha. K-9 Mail is open-source, has been around for a while, and comes highly recommend in various security communities :)
iOS und Exchange server ergeben einfach nur noch mehr Probleme. Hast du es mal mit einem anderen Android Mail Client versucht? K9?
I wouldn't think there would be much call for this kind of app - it's a real edge case scenario I reckon.
You could try something like K9 Mail, which is (relatively) lightweight and give you the notifications you want.
Fair point, although I'd argue it's very easy to set up the encrypted inbox.
Also fair, although the advantage of PGP is that it's a widely adopted standard. If I'm not mistaken the encryption scheme of tutanota/protonmail only works between tutanota/protonmail users. Everyone else just gets a link to tutanota/protonmail where they need to enter a password. Which means you now need to manage a bunch of passwords for different recipients and you need to send those passwords on a secure channel. The recipients don't even get a "proper" email they can archive for their own needs. Also, with PGP, other people only need to know your public key (which mailbox.org can upload to a key server so everyone can access it) to send you encrypted emails. If I'm not mistaken I can't send encrypted emails to tutanota/protonmail users.
mailbox.org works with IMAP (and POP3 I believe); you can use any client that supports these protocols. This means you can also use Thunderbird on your desktop. For Android I'd recommend K-9 Mail (also available on F-Droid).
You could try blowing away the email profile and setting it back up. If that doesn't work there are plenty other email apps. K-9 Mail is good lightweight app that supports encrypted emails.
Not with the official GMail app. I use K9Mail on multiple devices, and even if I check it on my phone, the notification is still there on my tablet.
K9-Mail ([link]) is my favorite ever since I started using it. Lightweight, does it's job well, add multiple accounts, change notification sounds per mailbox etc.
K-9 Mail anyone? Open source and amazing.
Must have apps will always differ person to person, but here are some good ones IMHO:
K9 mail - Open source email client with support for most services and has built in support for PGP. (Free)
- The most customisable and feature filled SMS app on Android. (Free)
Tasker - Allows you to automate anything on your device. Take your time learning it though because it has a bit of a steep learning curve. (Paid)
Combine Tasker with AutoVoice plugin to control everything you want to using voice commands.
Join - Allows you to join multiple devices, seamless sync. (Paid)
Open camera - Open source camera app, highly configurable with manual settings for ISO, white balance, exposure, etc. (Free)
Island - Sandbox any app you wish to. (Free)
Nova launcher Prime - Hands down, the best launcher on Android, highly configurable to get your phone looking exactly how you want. (Free or Paid)
- Let's you add / create a customisable widget for just about anything you want, looking however you want. (Paid)
Adobe lightroom CC - One of the better apps for photo edits (Free)
Samsung Health You won't find a more feature packed health app than this one for free. (Free)
K-9 Mail (GitHub <em>repo</em>, Google Play)
FOSS; extensible with other tools, e.g. for security

I use K-9 Mail
K9 should be good for your purpose: [link]
K-9 mail: [link] or Play Store.

> I don't want to use Gmail since I'm using it for my personal accounts.
Outlook isn't any better than Gmail (privacy wise), you should change of email provider like Tutanota.
These features work with K9 Mail (source). Unfortunately they haven't yet added support for voice replies on Android Wear, which Pebble would inherit by extension. It's been a logged enhancement request for a while, though.
ETA: Specific notification actions K-9 offers are: reply, mark read, delete, archive, and spam. Only "reply" doesn't work properly (it opens a new reply message in the phone app).
The latest release of K-9 Mail (source) provides Pebblers (along with Android Wear users) more actionable notifications for mail messages: delete, mark as read, mark as spam, and reply -- though unfortunately, I haven't been able to get reply to work yet.
ETA: I just discovered that when I select "reply", it starts a reply message on the phone. Any K-9 users with an Android Wear watch, can you say what happens when you try to reply?
Here's mine: image
Swipe up to toggle the dock, swipe down to toggle the status bar.
Pressing the time/date opens up my email (K-9 Mail), pressing the battery bar opens SMS (Textra), and pressing the weather opens up the dialer.
The background is HD Ocean.
I'm a big fan on minimalism
I've used K9 email before, open source app, was happy with it.
Since he linkme bot didn't work, here are the links for the lazy:
Inbox by Gmail
I second K-9 mail.
If your Chromebook supports Android apps you could try using K-9 Mail
Tu viens par la même de m'expliquer pourquoi l'application de messagerie Android K-9 avait pour logo un chien... Merci.
> the phone cannot connect to secure wifi networks. I tried troubleshooting over the course of a few days but in the end the only way I could get it to connect was if I removed the password and made my home network un-secure. I can't be doing this for every network I need to use. At the moment this phone is eating up data because it can't connect to the networks my laptop and old phone worked fine on.
> the cable that came with this thing is absurd. If Google wants to use Type-C USB, fine, but why would both ends of the cable be that? Without a regular USB at one end, I can't connect the phone to my computer. I just went to a store to buy a Type-C to USB cable or adapter but they had neither, so I will have to order one from online. This just seems idiotic on Google's part. The only thing I can connect to right now is the wall charger, and I don't want to have to bring that everywhere and it'd be nice to be able to sync stuff straight to my computer since the wifi performance on this phone is so bad and I'd use up data trying to do it wirelessly.
> syncing music for android seems like a hassle, and if I want to get it from iTunes I will probably have to buy additional software like iSyncr or something, but I haven't done that yet because honestly I'm not sure I want to keep this thing. And keeping track of things like play counts is important to me, and I don't know if that will be preserved. I haven't been able to try any of this stuff, though, because of the lack of a cable.
> email syncing for non-GMail accounts is spotty. I have a GMail and Yahoo account and the Yahoo one doesn't sync properly. On more than one occasion I have deleted emails on my phone and then found them still there when I went to my email on my laptop.
> the battery life is laughably bad.
> Chrome kept freezing and crashing on me. I have tried Firefox instead and that seems okay, but Chrome is more integrated to the Android OS so it would've been nice to be able to use that.
> keyboard shortcuts don't work when I want them to. On iOS, I mostly used keyboard shortcuts for email addresses, so I could type @@ or something to insert or something. But on Android, keyboard shortcuts don't seem to work in email input windows - either when I'm composing and email or logging into an account - only in the body of the email or in text messages where I never need them.
For browsers, use HTTPS-Everywhere plugin if possible.
For session between computers use OpenSSH
For IM chat (XMPP, Hangouts, Facebook, etc..) or IRC query (private messages) use OTR
For email and non-IM encrypted messages use OpenPGP protocol standar:
For MacOS X:
For Windows and GNU/Linux (it could be on MacOS X but I don't see it)
For Windows, GNU/Linux and MacOS X:
For files in a disk use any encryption software:
For voice encryption, use ZRTP protocol:
If someone wants to put Solaris, OpenBSD and FreeBSD, feel free to do so. Most of the software above can also be compiled for those OSs.
And that's for software only. You may want email providers, cloud providers and other kind of providers that support real encryption (no, Dropbox having the keys is not real encryption...) and if possible, with their code open-sourced.
Edit: Forgot to add voice encryption with ZRTP protocol
I suppose K-9 Mail doesn't satisfy the looks requirement?
Last I read, Mail app store credentials on the device if you use 'fetch' notifications, which means they don't get sent to a server.
>In order to function properly, Canary Mail for Mac and for iOS accesses your name, email address, credentials (such as OAuth access tokens for email servers which support them), and email content.All of this information is stored on your device and is never transferred to our servers.
>The only scenario in which we will temporarily store this data is if users of Canary Mail for iOS choose to enable Push notifications when they receive email. In that case, Canary will temporarily store your email address, credentials, sender, subject line, and first line of the message on our server. All data is cleared from our server when notifications are disabled on Canary Mail for iOS or when a user switches from using Push notifications to Fetch mode, in which case all data is stored on the device.
Same thing for Airmail
>No data is transmitted to our servers if you do not have push notifications enabled for an account.
As for Android, K9 Email is probably one of the better ones. Here's the f-droid link or Google Play
Or you can also use K9Mail if you don't feel like giving Google more of your personal info.
K-9 Mail ??
K-9 Mail maybe?
If what you are looking for is an email hosting provider for your domain, this are some privacy respecting email hosting providers, though to use your own domain you are going to have to pay. If you want something free with your domain, ZoHo is an option, though I do not think they are as privacy-conscious as the other providers.
If you are looking for a good email client on android, K-9 Mail is open-source and has support for PGP. It can be downloaded through the Playstore or through F-Droid.
POP3 only downloads emails from the server, whereas IMAP can also report changes back to the server (move one email to certain folder). I personally prefer using IMAP since my emails are organized across all my devices.
Try K-9 Mail, you can get it on Google Play or F-Droid.
That should get you going. And it can send emails to Tasker as well.
> I just moved to samsung from apple. I'm confused which email app to use. There's an app that says email on the first page, which I'm guessing is for the primary email account, regardless of the provider, and one specifically for gmail. For those of us who's primary email is Gmail, which do we use?
You can use whatever email client you want to use. I use K9Mail.
>I've found a lot of my contacts are on my phone without my bringing them over. I'm guessing they got imported from my Gmail.
As for the contacts, go to [link] and delete the ones you don't want in your phone's contacts, then sync your account on your phone (Settings > Accounts > Choose account > Sync). It doesn't matter what email client you use, your contacts get synced to your contacts app. If you have contacts on your iPhone, you can sync them with your Google account.
K-9 Mail (open source)
I think K9 Mail might suit your needs. You can set individual push, poll and sync settings for individual folders
> Excelin tasoinen taulukkolaskentaohjelma
Mitkä excelin tasoista ovat sinulle relevantteja? "Haluun Windowsin joka ei ole Windows" on aika huono lähtökohta alkaa ehdottamaan vaihtoehtoja.
> Tekstinkäsittelyohjelma jolla on word/excel tapaiset integraatioedut ja tiedostojen on auettava MS-ohjelmistoilla. muotoilun ei tarvitse säilyä mutta sisällön kyllä.
Melkeinpä mikä tahansa itseään kunnioittava vaihtoehto-office osaa kyllä lukea MSOfficen tiedostoja, mutta tuskin mikään niistä osaa tehdä sen täydellisesti. Tämä voi oikeasti olla iso ongelma vaihtoehtojen suhteen, jos on käyttänyt Officea vuosikaudet. Pahimmassa tapauksessa saatat joutua asentamaan MSOfficen Winen tai vastaavan avulla.
> Sähköpostipalveluna varmaan Thunderbird on ok?
Thunderbird ei ole palvelu, vaan asiakasohjelma, mutta sellaisena kyllä ihan pätevä valinta. Androidille näpsäkkä asiakasohjelma on avoimen lähdekoodin K-9 Mail.
Jos sen sijaan etsit sähköposti*palvelua*, niin niitä kyllä löytyy pilvin pimein. Edellämainitun Zohon lisäksi sellaista voi kysellä internet-palveluntarjoajaltaan, työpaikaltaan tai vaikka pystyttää oman postipalvelimen. Tietoturvan kannalta joku Hushmail voi olla hyvä, mutta toisaalta myös PGP:n käyttäminen vie jo pitkälle.
> Pilvipalvelu joka on turvallinen.
"Turvallinen" on etenkin tässä kohtaa todella suhteellinen termi; pilven käyttö edellyttää jonkin tason luottamusta palveluntarjoajaan. Onko Dropbox turvallinen? Entä Tresorit?
Yllämainitut tukevat ainakin Linuxia, Androidia ja iOS:ia.
> selain tars kans tehdä turvalliseksi.
Firefox on varmaan hyvä lähtökohta. WebKit-pohjainen Midori on myös ihan kiva. Linuxille löytyy myös Chromea vastaava Chromium.
Ja taas pitäisi miettiä sitä turvallisuuden määritelmää, sillä tietoturva on prosessi, ei määränpää. Voit käyttää CD:lle poltetulla live-linuxilla tarkoin tutkittua avoimen lähdekoodin selainta i2p:n kautta nettikahvilassa kommandopipo päässäsi, mutta jos itse postaat henkilötietojasi nettiin tai klikkailet satunnaisia latauslinkkejä pornosivustoilla, ei mikään näistä keinoista sinua voi pelastaa.
Käyttäjä on lähes aina se heikoin lenkki, josta muutoin turvallinen ketju katkeaa.
What I have does exactly that! Let me break it down for you:
On your PC: Download Thunderbird (it's free!). Once installed, it should ask you to add an email address. Add in your gmail / yahoo / work email. Thunderbird will look through it's database for email settings. You're then presented with two options - IMAP or POP3. Choose IMAP, as this will enable to 'read' synchronization across your devices. It should pick up Gmail and Yahoo settings fine, but for your Office365 settings you'll probably have to find the IMAP settings somewhere in the online webmail portal for 365. Go ahead and click 'Done'. You've added your first email address to Thunderbird! Click on the 'Get Messages' button on the top left to start loading all your emails. To add more email addresses, click on the settings icon, and click the arrow next to 'New Message' and select 'Add Existing Mail'. Simply follow the steps previously done. Do this for each email account. You can also create a 'Folder' in Thunderbird that shows every email in the one folder. If you want to do this, press 'Alt' + 'V' and select View | Folders | Unified from the menu.
On your Phone and Tablet: Download K9Mail. Open it up and it should prompt you to add an email address. You'll need to manually input the server settings.
For gmail, these are:
> Incoming Server:
>IMAP server: imap.gmail.com
>Security Type: SSL (always)
>Authentication Type: PLAIN
>SMTP server: smtp.gmail.com
>Security Type: TLS (always)
>Check the “Require Sign-in.” box
>Authentication type: PLAIN
> Incoming Server:
>IMAP server: imap.mail.yahoo.com
>SMTP server: smtp.mail.yahoo.com
To add extra emails to K9 Mail, just head to the accounts list (do this by pressing the K9 logo in the top left) and press the "+" at the bottom to add a new account.
There's heaps of other ways to do it, but this is how I work it :)
It literally says that it's discontinued in K-9 Material's GitHub.
Also, K-9 Mail is still highly active in development. You can see it in their Github. Their last upload to Google Play was 2017 Sep 5th. You can view all of the commits here. You can see all of the releases here. I get all my updates via F-Droid though, not Google Play.
Had to go stock. k9 is said to be the best alternative for the time being
A Free, good, mail client.
The less shady alternative is K-9, it's open source but it wasn't update in last five months and it needs Material Design (or in the meantime you can use this fork from XDA)
Are you using K-9 email as your email app?
K9 mail has an option for external SD card storage but I am not certain if that means all emails or just attachments.
I use K-9 Mail. Try it out.
Apparently K-9 Mail does it too :o
Check out K9 for a fantastic email client with minimal permissions.
I've used it for years.
Try a different email client, like K9
