This happens when you open the app from the notification screen and minimize it by swiping. Not sure it happens all the time but i've seen it happen quite a few times.

UPDATE: I 've seen this happen even after starting email from the app grid and minimizing the app.

Request: Can a mod remove the rejected tab or this is something only jolla people can do?

Bump to remove rejected tag, i faced this issue couple of days ago with latest release as well.

In which view is the app minimized ?

The way i get it is: 1) Swipe up to enter notification screen 2) Tap the email notification 3) Swipe to go to inbox 4) Minimize 5) You read 0 unread emails and there are no cover actions.

Doesn't happen all the time but i've seen this on occasion.

This happens when you minimize the email app while an email is opened. When you go back to folder view and minimize it, you get the controls back. You could say that this is not a bug, it's a feature :). But I agree that this is a kind of "anti-feature".

It would be more logic to have the controls also available when an email is opened. It would make sense that the left control would provide the "reply to this email" function in this case. But that could be confusing on the other hand.

Nope. I minimize from the inbox. As i said it doesn't happen always.

Cover for email viewer and email composer does not have any cover actions as per design, so that's expected.

No it's not expected, it's a bug.
