Android/PC 2-way sync works ok for me. What messed up was having Google in the mix. I can't have my pc syncing with google and android at the same time.

My sync settings are: EPIM PC and Android are in a 2-way sync and Android syncs with Google 1-way.

This way i have zero problems.

Why don't you sync your PC with Google and Android EPIM with Google, as well? In this case you don't need to sync WinEPIM with AndroidEPIM.

@Admin, that's something, but how about Passwords? I need the module on Android.

Same thing, passwords can be synced through Google, as well.

Can't create offline account (folders) - would be great to move there old, but sometimes needed emails, not synchronized folders work, but they're shaded and bararely visible.
Kind of archive offline folder.
Second - can't find selection for folder for sent items. Would be nice option not to bother with actions on this topic.

First option is in plans. Not sure I understand the second one. Sent folder is usually assigned by a server for IMAP types of account, we wouldn't be able to re-define it.

Yes, it's assigned, but in f.ex. claws Mail you can change folder, in which program stores sent emails. Sam in Mozilla, MSOutlook and many others.

I can't remember email client, that can't do it. It was surprising thet EPiM can't.
Information about offline archive folder is nice and I'm glad it comes.

What you can do in EPIM is to create a message rule that will place all outgoing mail into a folder of your choice.

I can't think of much I "don't like" about EPIM. The mail feature needs local folders before I could consider leaving Thunderbird (and a message scheduler) but I am not crying about that as the bloat might not be worth it. That is just an aside comment. Anything else to be said would be tweaks
I am very happy with the program the way it is

By local folders you mean a feature that would allow you to move/copy emails into a local folder not synchronizable wit the mail server?
And a message scheduler should allow you to choose when to send the message?

Admin, despite I don't use email here, but yes, there is such an add-on in Thunderbird and probably other clients, Send Later.
You can set many detailed stuff, like default day and hour, say, Monday 9 am, so you can write emails on Saturday, and set them to be sent on Monday at a given time.

Yes. I get a lot of email and have a ton of filters to move it into local folders. (local folders could be a folder structure in the same folder as the database instead of keeping the data base trim. Same with POP if enabled)

Keep in mind I love EPIM as is!

I use the SendLater addon in Thunderbird extensively. Not only for next day email, but I have it set to delay all sends for a minute. That way I don't have to wait for it to connect and send; sending is almost instantaneous while I am working. Yes that is lazy 8) :lol:

+1 on the email Local Folders, I want to reduce the data left in the cloud as much as possible, and I have several gigabytes of email going back years that I want to keep in Local Folders. For now, I need to use something like Thunderbird to manage that, hopefully adding that feature to EPIM wouldn't require much development investment
