cannot create new emails - Compose button missing

cannot create new emails - Compose button missingYesterday I updated to v5.802 from old UI version.
Now I have the problem that I cannot create new mails - “compose” button is missing.
Another thread here describes that on smaller displays some menu actions might be shifted to overflow/three dots menu on th right side.
But the three dots menu only offers me the options Sort by/Select all/Mark all as read. No more!!
Any Idea?
(I am using a Sony Xperia XZ1 with 5,2" screen)


It’s the pen icon next to the magnifying glass.

Hint: If you long-press icons in the action bar, a popup will show you the name of the action. This works in all apps (that use standard system components).

Oh. Indeed!
Did try eveything else, but not the pen icon.
Thank you!

on an oppo a53s with android 10, k9mail_5.802 doesn’t show the ‘pen icon’.
the option ‘rédiger’ (write a new message) appears and after clicking, the app crashes :frowning:
i’ve tried to reinstall but it’s the same.
the version 5.60 doesn’t start at all.
any suggestion ?
many thanks in advance !
