hello,
I got myself a new phone and after trying to install aquamail in it,
I faced two issues:
1) there should be an option to skip the startup wizard,
maybe an option to import from a backup instead,
cause, since I had a backup I didn't need to go through it,
anyway, I did but i deleted the account afterwards and
restored all my accounts from the backup

2) I cannot backup/restore to external storage,
it says the app doesn't have access,
so? why doesn't it request access like other apps do?
I had to move the backup but is it possible to give it access to the sd card?

the informational hints should also be disabled when restoring, I know the app, I wouldn't want information on how it works since I'm restoring

The Back button. Every Android phone or tablet has one :)

Some do some don't.

The procedure is complicated for "the average user" and there are additional complications around implementing this.

Therefore, access to "real" microSd is not a priority. We have enough of other - email specific - things to work on.
