Hi sailors,

  1. Impossible for me when writing a mail to attach a file as an attachment. With my J1, K 9 mail was able to open a photo explorer and it was possible to attach a jpg format file.

  2. when I receive emails containing a file .jpg format (and certainly .jpeg): k 9 mail offers just to open "Book", osmand or OpenKeyChain and not Gallery or an other soft as Fotoo. In short nothing that allows me to open the photo :-(

How to get around these problems ? Curiously, Signal app is able to find jpg files in the memory of the XA2. But not k9mail.
Forgive me if the question has already been asked, but my research did not allow me to find points or answers on these bugs.

Thanks a lot

Both issues seem to be side effects from removing built-in Android apps in aliendalvik.

I fixed the issue by installing "Simple Filemanager" & "Simple Gallery " from F-Droid, but I assume any file manager / gallery app will do...

Yep, any filemanger and gallery helps

Thanks a lot ! Even if it doesn't solve the problem it's a very good waiting solution. I close this subject ;-)
