New to AquaMail, explored settings thoroughly - questions
« on: January 30, 2017, 12:50:45 pm »
- I figured out that server side searches don't work properly through Smart Folder view, only when I select the right inbox. Is it possible for AquaMail to group conversations in a server side search or only for cached messages? When the server side search works properly, it's tough to find the right message since long email chains show as individual messages.

- In conversation view (not message list), how do I get rid of the other person's identity photo (circle next to their email address in header)?

- In "Mail, receiving" users can select both Push Mail and Scheduled Sync. I have Push Mail selected, so isn't Scheduled Sync unnecessary?

- In Look and Feel, I've tried checking/unchecking Animation, I can't see any difference, what are the effects?

- In Look and Feel, I'm considering using the Two-Panel UI. In the left panel, account names are indented to make room for vertical arrows, and there are refresh arrows and unread message count, so it only shows 2-4 characters of the name of each account. Is it possible to resize the panel, or to change what is displayed in the panel so I can see full account names?

- In Look and Feel, I can't figure out what the Accounts Panel options do. Is it possible in Smart Folder message list when I tap the left navigation drawer or the top Smart Folder name, that it shows me all accounts on the left? Instead of having to tap accounts? The options of one hour, eight hours, etc may be helpful to some people but not for me.

- In Conversations, what are mosaic contacts?

- In Smart Folder settings, there's an option to show account and folder names for each message. Is it possible to split these settings? I'd really like to show account but NOT folder names. Adding folder names makes the Smart Folder message list more cluttered and doesn't help me, but I do need it to show account names on each message.

Thanks so much everyone, I appreciate the help.

Even when you have Push enabled, you want to have Scheduled sync as well, it will ensure that nothing falls through the cracks. Leave it at 15 or 30 minutes setting.


@Kostya: this Q&A belongs to the FAQ already.  ;)

The account list panel is currently only available in "regular" folders (not the smart folder).

You can turn this setting off and assign a color to each account instead (long press on the account(s) on the app's main screen).

Yes it is possible to resize, please try dragging just to the left of the divider line, and right near the bottom. The drag "area" is visible when you go from accounts / message list to message list / message view and back.

But two panel mode isn't really that great on phones. Some people do like it though.

And one other tip: you may want to try keeping two panels enabled, and also set "portrait mode" to "single panel, full screen" -- then two panel will only be used in landscape.

Re: smart folder search

Only searches the messages already loaded into the app.

To do a server search (for older messages), please initiate it from a particular account / folder (requires IMAP or Exchange, POP3 doesn't do server searches).
