Hi,

Thank you for your reply and thanks for the suggestions.

I have updated my settings to take account of the suggestions and reposted with an update, to which you have replied with the suggestions I have tried.

Please may I politely ask you to consider the other points.

Thank you,

Julian

Aquamail is far away the best email app for Android (thanks to Kostya!)... I use it for several years (maybe six) I don't see any good reasons for the followings:

1) The conversation counter was initially on the right and it was great, now it's on the left of each image, honestly it's awful and out of any logic. Please put it back where it was (or eventually give the option to put it back)
2) Please put back (or on option) the bottom bar with the buttons 'refresh, new, search, all selected'
3) Take off this awful multicolor refreshing line, it could be the bottom button as initially or a basical unicolor

Until now, I've been back to version 1.7.2-121 with an APK I could get with the app Myapks (fortuneatly)...

Please keep Aquamail the best
Bertrand

Just a quick 'work-around' for the "... much less visible date received time":

-> Settings -> Message list -> scroll down to the section "Customize" -> you can set
1) an appropriate color for 'message times (unread)' / 'message times (read)'
2) enable 'Bold: message times' for 'Unread' and/or 'Read'

Mikeone,

Thank you for that - good idea and it helps a lot.

Now all I need is a little help with the slim padding and the paperclip and I may get my 4 missing messages back too - fingers crossed.

Thanks again and regards,

Julian

The bottom button? What bottom button? :)

Just want to say that I love the app, it is very well designed and I appreciate your work. It's not perfect but it's pretty damn close. The abundance of customization options is awesome. And love it that you listen to your users and implement changes quick! Well done, keep it up!!

Is there any sign of a customisation option for the "accent" colour? My tablet has updated to the latest Play version but I can't see that this has been added so I still have the (in my opinion, quite horrible) teal accents. I've switched off automatic updates on my phone so that I can avoid the latest version until this option is available, but that's tremendously inconvenient.

Thanks
John

-> Settings -> Look and feel -> Title bar and icon bar color -> choose one of the predefined colors or define an individual one under 'Custom' - 'Exact' :)

Nope - that's not the 'accent' colour. I'm talking about the overlays that appear when you select messages in a message list. They're still teal which really doesn't fit with what I've already set in that option you described.

Overlays - checkboxes?

Assuming you have turned off "contact images" in message lists?

I purchased this 5 years ago (maybe more) and always appreciated that it kept evolving. I always wrote the original developer to thank him every time he made an update. So thank you, too, for the updates to the UI. Keep up the good work. 😊

No. When you're in the message list, select one or more messages and the top toolbar changes to a different bar that's a teal colour with no option to change it.

To give credit where it's due - the design update was (mostly) the work of @lpetkov, he's here on the forum:

Ah, in the light theme? Yes, true, very light "pastel" teal. Sorry no setting for this one.

Would you please consider adding an option to change it, which should hopefully be quite simple? The current 'standard' colour in the 'light' theme you mention clashes horribly with my custom settings for other colour options (and it never used to be this way!).

Thanks
