I made the terrible mistake of updating when I saw the support for Oauth had been implemented.
After being aware of the real changes beneath, I want to get back the accounts overview screen and the message fetch in a minute, the kind of things why I used K9. So, I want to downgrade to my beloved version 5.6 (correct me if I am wrong and it is not the one that included those features). I got it from f-droid, but when installing, it fails for an “unknown error”.
I know it would only a matter of uninstalling the cool new one and installing the old, ugly yet ideal one, but I fear losing my settings and having to reset it all. Is there a way of preserving my config while installing an outdated version?
I don’t want to change my email client, because k9 was all I needed, but I think it’s about time of thinking of an alternative. Were it the case that a fork resembling the traditional k9 existed, I would be glad to know it.
you will find export and import settings options under “settings”. i’m rashly assuming that settings exported from 6.x are backward compatible with 5.x, but i don’t think i’ve seen people who have retro’d say otherwise.
