PS - I'm not seeing much feedback on Exchange/EWS.... Did this turn out to be a feature that barely anyone needs?

I think pop3/imap is more common than exchange.
The most wanted feature seems to be threading  ;)

However, thanks for your hard work and that great e-mail client!!!!!!!!

I don't think that many people need EWS - BUT those who DO need it, need it badly!
It is good that you implemented it, because it gives AM an even better reputation. It is like an airbag - 99% of the drivers will never need it. But if you DO need it, you sure are glad, that it's there!

I am not sure if I already mentioned it, but I would be so happy about swiping....? Maybe to the left to reply and to the right to delete? O0

^-^

Yes, Exchange is like an airbag. A very apt metaphor.

And yet... it has been the number one requested (missing) feature for a long time.

And in firmly in second place, amazingly enough -- being able to insert images into signatures.

Hey, dirkliesenfeld, think it's time we badgered Kostya about some swipe actions again, yet? :D

Don't tempt me. Kostya  already hates me for that. He probably wakes up every night from the same nightmare. Seeing me with an axe in my fist, shouting: swipe, swipe, swipe or I'll cut off a finger....
Ah, f*** this!
I'll do it anyways.

Ey, Kostya, what about that swiping¿*¡¢$¥^¥¥¥

Nope, not yet.

I've got to fix 4.4 WebView issues ("load completely" and "show images" panels overlapping the top of message content), and given that I've got to "ship" this thing at some point, I'll have to go for the easy-but-not-quite-as-good-as-I'd-like option (like in K9 and stock EMail).

That's just a compromise I have to make, to get Exchange support into the users' hands this year (sounds almost gloomy).

But I'd like to fix it the right way too, so that's one possible task for just after the release. Another is that damned side navigation drawer (that also falls into "swipe stuff"), and being able to swipe from message to message (damn, another "swipe thing"). And yet another is this one, swipe actions in message lists. Guess I'll try to work on them all at more or less the same time.

BTW, @Rachel, do you happen to know anyone in the Exchange or Forefront product groups at MS?

Hi, I'm new here and kind of lost. Just downloaded AquaMail with the intention to upgrade if Exchange (for work email) is working. How do I get access to the Exchange feature? Do I have to use a beta version?

1.3 with Exchange support will be released soon (I'm really trying for "before" x-mas).

Feel free to try the latest dev version. It installs over the released version (e.g. from Google Play) without a data loss.

Got it, thanks! Does this work with ActiveSync as well? I can't get it to communicate with the server and in Touchdown I had to select Active Sync.

ActiveSync is not and will not be supported due to Microsoft's complicated licensing scheme.

I'm using EWS (Exchange Web Services protocol), available in Exchange 2007 SP1 and later (released just over six years ago).

BTW, @Rachel, do you happen to know anyone in the Exchange or Forefront product groups at MS?

I might be able to share a tree there - still got a few contacts from my MS days. What sort of thing you looking for?

Sorry for the delay. Think I have Kostyaitis - a horrible need to to work all hours of the day and night to meet a deadline.

So there is already an illness named after me, I feel honored :)

Re: MS:

I'm trying to figure out how to work with Exchange servers protected by a product called Forefront.

It appears to be a security-enhancing (?) proxy that sits in front of Exchange servers.

This Forefront thing blocks my apps's EWS requests, redirecting to an interactive account validation page that's intended to show in a web browser, where the user needs to fill in their login / password. This obviously doesn't work in a non-interactive scenario.

I got two independent reports about this, so it looks that something about my app's EWS requests triggers Forefront's alarms ("what is the airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow").

Here is a link to my question posted of MS's support forums for Forefront, the responses have been underwhelming...

Hi Kostya, I'm new to the forums and a recent AM user.  I've bought the key and I'm glad to see this app has exchange support.  The main question I have in regards to EWS is speed.  The android stock mail app supports OWA and has instant (push) mail.  Will AM using EWS have the same capability anytime soon or should I continue to use the stock mail for Exchange and AM for everything else?
