Please relax.  Your privacy is not your at starting point - when you switching your phone ON.  And yes, opting collecting data feature is a must, but I really doubt if it gonna change something. 
Another thought, if it so matter, broadcast reciever can be opted out to server X with some root tools.

So Mobisystems is pushing an Aquamail icon to users' home screen via OfficeSuite?

If true, that's a real bad sign of things to come.

what about rolling back to the previous version and sticking there forever?

I disagree but, again, this is OT now.

Sure, maybe it can be done. But Don't you think it's better to have a built-in option (It shouldn't take so long to add a simple switch in the "privacy" section)? It would also confirm the good-will of the developer(s).

This is a non-solution. Like you, I'd like to receive security and feature updates but I'm simply not willing to send unknown stuff around the world. Is it so difficult to understand? It's a simple (working) on/off switch I'm asking for, nothing else.

yes, I know, and for me you're right,
last week I installed an (irrelevant) app,
which had 2 options in the settings:
1) send anonymous data
2) show ads
you could uncheck only one of these (i.e. unchecking the 1st would check the 2nd and vice versa),
but this was because I downloaded the free version,
downloading the paid version you could remove both checks (obviously..),
so aquamail should respect its paid users at least and
give them the option to opt out of sending out bs!!!

This is super disappointing.

Love AM but hate Mobisystems. They screw everything they touch with ads, pop-ups and nag screens -- and that's just the paid/pro versions!

Clearly one of AM's strength was its transparent and honest privacy policy and respect/security of user data - that seems dashed now unfortunately.

Kostya -- I'm grateful for your work on AM and understand why you'd want to partner with someone, but please consider how to restore the biggest feature that brought many AM users onboard in the first place: user privacy/security being paramount.

Regards.

No, just a link to have the idea, what I'm talking about. 
You get it from other sources if you wish.

Some French and German speaking users are not happy with AquaMail, pushed on their screens by Mobisystems advertisement  (see Google Play comments).

Would you please check in your own languages?

Same in Spain:

Definitely, not a good sign.
