so, I’ve been using this app for years with zero issues. I’ve recently installed the latest version of the app from Fdroid, on LineageOS 20.
Since I’ve set it up I cannot seem to get my sent items to display in the k9 mail app. I’ve tried enabling all folders, I’ve tried reverting to the older app password method of authentication, nothing makes a difference.
When I send an email from the app, it works, and it does display in my sent items in the web interface, but no matter what I do I cannot get K9 to show me more than just my inbox. any other folder (sent, bin, spam, etc) simply does not display in the app.
It has to be something account specific; I’ve just added another gmail account and it’s working fine.
When I look in the “manage folders” dialogue, I can see the “sent” folder is set to “automatic (none)”, when I select that, the sent folder is not displayed as an option to select. I guess it has nothing to do with K9 mail, but must be something to do with my gmail account?
Honestly not even sure where to start looking to get that resolved, any suggestions welcome.
Otherwise I’ll make sure to post up the answer if/when I find it in case someone else comes across this thread in the future.
Well f*ck me. no idea how these settings would have ever been changed, but here we are. As this has basically nothing to do with K9 mail, I can delete the post if needed, but here is the answer inside gmail settings:
