Description Fabio Valentini 2021-02-20 10:40:06 UTC
Spec URL:

Mail app designed for elementary

Fedora Account System Username: decathorpe

koji scratch build for rawhide:

Note: The last stable release still uses the old insecure and retired webkitgtk3 bindings. The upstream git repository contains a complete modern rewrite, which is why a git snapshot is used for packaging.

Comment 1 Fabio Valentini 2021-03-09 18:43:28 UTC
After discussing this with Pantheon SIG members, we decided to not submit an official elementary Mail package to Fedora, at least not in its current state.

Functionality of the project is still very limited, for example, it's impossible to set up accounts (neither in Mail nor in the Online Accounts plug for switchboard), it has to be done externally in Evolution

I think it would be better to recommend Geary as an E-Mail client for Pantheon for now.
