Handles "Doze mode" on newer Android devices more gracefully. Doze mode was the cause of the app showing the "syncing disabled" message and preventing it from syncing mails in the background.
Added floating action buttons (compose and reply). This gives an extra action button in the menu bar.
All action button icons have been changed to be compliant with material design guidelines.
