Mozilla launches email for Android devices | #firefox | #chrome | #microsoftedge

Mozilla today announced a new email client for Android devices called K-9 Mail. The new mobile app is being launched as part of Mozilla’s Thunderbird family of open-source desktop email and chat applications.

The Mozilla Foundation said it is also currently evaluating the development of a K-9 email client for iOS devices.

K-9 Mail includes an improved account setup using Thunderbird account auto-configuration, improved folder management, support for message filters, and synchronization between desktop and mobile versions of Thunderbird, Mozilla said. (K-9 Mail is available for download through these various sites.)

“Ultimately, K-9 Mail will transform into Thunderbird on Android, once certain development milestones have been achieved which align it closely with Thunderbird’s feature set and visual appearance,” K-9 Mail Project Maintainer Christian Ketterer said in a blog post. (Ketterer is better known in the Mozilla open-source developer community as cketti.)

Thunderbird is a free and open-source email, calendaring, newsfeed, and chat client with more than 20 million active monthly users across Windows, macOS, and Linux.

Like Thunderbird, the K-9 Mail project is entirely funded by the Mozilla Foundation community of open-source developers.
