I don't know how hard it will be, but if Tutanota was able to fetch mails from my other IMAP account, I think it'll instantly become the best/mainly used open source email client.

Currently K9-Mail interface is very very disappointing (to say the least) and, even through they are efforts to improve it, they've still a long way to go.
Other solution implies having an intermediate server that reads your email/stores your credentials (all proprietary software BTW) which is, at least for me, unacceptable.

Tutanota fills a current gap in this (kudos for E2E encryption) and if I could run a server on my side that would fetch my mails from all my accounts, encrypt them, and send them to Tutanota so they would appear in the mail list, then I would never come back.

It's related to #521 (support for multiple account).

This would be a tremendous help. I am sure that many potential users have email accounts they need to maintain. To be able to manage that in Tutanota would mean it could become THE email client for many.

Yes this feature will be very useful for many users. Any plans to implement it to Tutanota?

Currently, there's also SimpleEmail in F-Droid that works correctly. It's much more simple to configure than K9, does not consume as much battery as K9 and also have a nice material UI.
While the requested feature is implemented, it's worth taking a look.

Disclaimer: I helped in the UI change to look "material" in this software.
