Mailspring icon in system tray not showing

As you can see, the icon is there next to update manager and it works like it it supposed to, but it will not appear until i untick and tick the option to "Show icon in menu bar / system tray" in the mailspring settings. It also works if I remove and add again the system tray applet. Is there a fix to this? It worked perfectly on 18.3 but i have this bug on mint 19.

My thought was using a command to sort of "restart" the system tray and put it as a start-up command after mailspring opens. Is that possible?

For the time I tried that mail client I had this bug too - M18.3. I think it's the program's icon that's bugged. Restarting the DE didn't change anything, so I'm pretty sure it's a mailspring problem.

P.S. "Tray" is a Windows term. Some people call that area "status panel", others call it "launcher bar" but AFAIK there's no such a thing as "tray" in Linux.
