Give FairEmail a try: Open Source, well supported (constant updates), supports Android accounts on phone, blocks trackers, etc.

Re: Kinda curious

As the planet orbits and is about to pass behind the sun, or as it comes from behind, the sun's light bounces off the planet's atmosphere and its spectrum can be observed (though added to the sun's own spectrum from this distance). It may also be possible to observe the spectrum while the planet is in front of the star (the light passing through the atmosphere around the planet where not blocked otherwise by the planet), but don't quote me.

Science has improved on Galileo's telescope.
