Just a simple suggestion

Postby PhoxFyre » Tue, 24 Jan 2017, 04:16

Maybe could we have FossaMail for Android (FM4A)? If not, that's fine, FM is perfect just the way it is (so excited for FM 27! :mrgreen:)

There are two problems with that:

1) Pale Moon for Android exists because it was derived from the Android version of Firefox. To my knowledge (someone please correct me if I'm wrong) there is no Android version of Thunderbird to use as a base to create an Android version of FossaMail.

2) Development of Pale Moon for Android was suspended because the dev team does not have the resources to devote to further Android development. Until someone from the community jumps up and takes that over, support for the Android version of Pale Moon is limited to the occasional security update. With that in mind, they certainly do not have the resources to create an Android version of FossaMail.

Sorry.

There are already plenty of available mail clients for Android to choose from, as well :)

If I had to use an e-mail client under Android, this would be the one:

Yeah, I set it up for my father on his tablet.
It was actually the only decent Android mail client I were able to find!
