According to Google FairEmail is spyware because it uploads the contact list. My guess is this is because of the usage of favicons, which will use the domain name of email addresses to fetch info. This feature has been removed from the Play store version now.

FairEmail is a pretty critical part of my current email strategy. I guess I have to go looking for a decent alternative.

It took me forever to find a solution that worked for me.

Okay. Other people have already copied the source code of FairEmail.
They only wait for your 'okay' to maintain them further on F-Droid under GPL 3 License.
@★Miller↯ Technically, if it's GPL'd they don't need permission. They already have irrevocable permission to fork the project.

I'd do it myself, but I don't have the resources to take on such a project.
@Jonathan Lamothe (he/him) so here is your first fork:

Interestingly enough, I just got an update of FairEmail from the F-Droid store this morning. No mention of this is the release notes.
