I spent the lat 10 hours installing and testing every single mail client in the repository for Flat and zorin. In every case they either do not function once you get a couple steps into the installation of your first email account.
Some of the show screens that are just blank, others express concern for gmail and the change to people.api so you can't have your contacts, Evolution just keeps asking for you to put in your passwords even though you have given access to gmail from within gmail. Blue Mail, and Kmail and lots of others all have issues and the worst part is it seems that the repository has a lot of old versions of things in it and still houses applications that have not been updated in 3 years.
I finally decided on BLIX as my choice email client which at the moment also does not allow GMAIL accounts, so that blows, but I can find anyone to tell about it. There is an error when you try to set up your gmail account that is like a 401 or something stating that this application has not yet been reviewed by google and has temporarily been yada yada..
I understand that linux is open source, but after being away from linux and coming back to it I am starting to realize why I did.. Chances are in the past I could not get a complete functioning desktop.
So I guess the question here is does anyone know how to contact blix so I can send them a screenshot of the error. I found some forums but they were from a blix page pointing to a snap forum and when I searched the forum there was nothing at all regarding blix.
I would like to let them know of the error so it can be reviewed and quite possibly I might just get that complete desktop I always wanted with Zorin.
On a sidenote: after installing telegram, even though it is at the most recent version the software updater continues to say it needs to be updated and when you click update it does nothing.. I have uninstalled and reinstalled but to no avail.
I firmly also believe that Zorin has a few issues with the taskbar, especially icons of open apps that are suppose to start on boot, but don't and then icons that should be by the clock that aren't or they are completely white and can't be seen at all, when I know that the icon should be green.
Any and all information is appreciated.. I really wish I was a developer and could help the team. All I can do is point out the problems and errors and that really sucks.
