This improves the setup time (often taking 60 seconds, now 10) and also
reduces message size. We are aiming to support ECC/ED25519 keys which
will much reduce key sizes.
If you are wondering if RSA2048 i safe enough you may consider:
- gpg (the command line tool) defaults to RSA2048
- Autocrypt setup messages (transfering your secret key)
are not safer than RSA2048 encryption keys.
- general advise still is that RSA2048 is enough

Hi Holger, apologies for the lag.
That sound like great news, it seems that (surprisingly!) something has
moved towards the changes I've been advocating on this list.
To double check that this is indeed the case: under which conditions (if
any) now using the default settings a chat message could remain in the
If you want to see both chat and normal e-mails from
contact, you can enable that in “advanced settings”. Some people also
like to read all their e-mail with delta chat and they can enable
seeing “all” messages as contact requests.
We made the algorithm more robust that automatically moves chat
messages to the DeltaChat IMAP folder. You should now see less clutter
in your INBOX with your regular e-mail app. There were many community
discussions in the last year around this topic and we hope we finally
found a way that is robust and easy to understand. All chat messages
will be automatically moved to the DeltaChat folder. Also any reply

This would seems to indicate that all of chats will be filtered by
default. Can you confirm this?
And if it's the case, does that include also initial/invitation chat
