It does not prevent updates as you can still open E-Mail from the apps grid. But it will not notify you about updates in the events view. Still, you can see the "update available" tag on it in the apps grid. Sounds to me like some server bug with apps disappearing from My apps.

I had problem updating it, and then all of a sudden it showed up as no longer installed, but after that, I could install it.
Its presence seems to be a bit buggy, but I'm unsure whether it's due to the app itself, related to Jolla store, or had something to do with everyone trying to download the SailfishOS update all at the same time.

It doesn't show up under "My apps" in the Jolla store, but it is marked as installed if I go to the app's page in the store.

(So: in short, I seem to have the same setup as the one you have.)

(Also: this was written from my Jolla, so I have no possibility to go back and check if what I've written looks ok ... (reported elsewhere already))

Did the uninstall - install one more time, and now Mail app is back in My apps list. Also notifications about new mails works again. Probably something went wrong during last reinstall or in previous SailfishOS update. Anyway maybe you could try the reinstall also to see if it fixes tbe situation for you also.

Afterall Mail app disappear after a while from My apps after reinstall. --> reinstall not solving the problem.

@ZeiArr Hm. True.
Saw your first comment, uninstalled+reinstalled the Mail app, could see the Mail app in "My apps", but no notification ... then I discovered that my Google account had been disconnected (still there, but needed to re-authorize it).
I just sent an e-mail to myself: it took 5 minutes (the minimum check-email span), but then I received a notification. :-)

Checked "My apps" again: Mail doesn't show amongst them ...
(also: during/after yesterdays updating to SailfishOS, the icons for two of my apps have weird icons - some kind of "default" icon? - in "My apps", but they look fine both in Launcher and if I go to their app pages in Jolla store)

There is currently a bug with too many apps in My Apps. They simply don't show. But apart from being not visible in My Apps, this has no effects.
