Mail notification not working

Just finished installing and setting up /e/

All app notifications are permitted. I setup mail to enable notifications.

Yet, I get nothing in the status bar when I receive an email.

Can anyone help point me in the right direction?

Thank you


there is a bug with Mail and notification on the 0.11 version that will be solved with the 0.12 update.

Thank you for the info.

This issue is not resolved with e-0.12-p-2020102981459-dev-FP2 and IMG-e-0.12-p-2020102981459-dev-FP3, at least not for me.

And does the synchronization occurs correctly in background?

See here to know why I’m asking this.

Yes, mail syncing works, only the notifications are missing, with all notification settings being go.

The issue is resolved for me with IMG-e-0.12-q-2020111084008-dev-FP3.

For me, the issue remains after uprgrading /e/ from Android 9 to Android 10. [begin edit] I can’t switch off e-mail notifications. [end edit]
I use a Fairphone 3.
/e/ build: e_FP3-userdebug 10 QQ3A.
200805.001 eng.root.20211027.184504
dev-keys,stable release

In Settings → Apps → E-Mail → Notifications, the following two buttons are greyed out [begin edit] and set to “on” [end edit]: “display notifications” and " mail_channel" [translations from the German].

Why is that so and how can either I myself or the developers fix it?

Thanks in advance and best regards


Did you try to play with Notification from within Mail app (Settings from main screen) ?

The issue of this topic here was that mail notifications weren’t working.
If you can’t stop them working that would be the opposite and a bit confusing. A new topic for this might be better.

Seconded. The Mail App has its own notification settings in the App, because notifications can be fine-tuned there in a way the general system settings can’t handle.
