  1. Apply labels faster

    Applying labels in Airmail v1.x and v2.x was lightning fast. Performance of applying labels in v3.x is a regression.

    When I type "L" to invoke the labels popover, I immediately begin typing the name of an existing label that I wish to apply. Rather than refining my list of labels, the app begins executing other keyboard-shortcut commands.

    For example, I type "L" immediately followed by "R" -- rather than refine my list of labels to those beginning with R, a new Reply window opens!

    Please make the labels popover appear and respond to keyboard input immediately.

    • List Mode User Tab Key and Shift+Tab to the writing Functionality

      When i'm using the bulleted List or the numbered List when i'm writing an email, there is a big problem when i use tab or shift tab it does not add a sub-list to the list.
      If you see the Mail from Mac, and the Microsoft Office all of those have the same functionality when you Press tab and shift+Tab.
      This is very anoying because it increate the amount of time that take to write emails with lists.

      • Auto-snooze emails from particular sender

        Hey, snooze feature is big deal and I'm glad you released it. It will go even further, if you plan to add an additional option:

        1. right-click or longer-tap on email
        2. option to auto-snooze every email from this sender to tonight-tomorrow-etc.

        Thanks! :)

        • Select next message behaviour on delete

          Add an option to choose which direction the selection moves when a message is deleted.

          Currently, the selection moves to the next message below. So if I start marking messages with the oldest unread message, every time I delete a message, it moves to a message I have already read. So I have to delete message, then manually move to the next message to read.

          Would be nice to have an option to reverse this behaviour, so when deleting it would move the selection to the next message above the deleted message.

          • Move to trash for invidividual messages doesn't work

            HI there,

            There is a problem with deleting individual messages from an email thread.

            According to the UI, by clicking on the "arrow down" and then on "Move to Trash" is should only move the one message to the trash, right? However, it moves the whole conversation to the trash.

            • Restore "Copy Email Address" to Right-Click Menu

              "Copy Email Address" seems to have been an existing feature, but it is missing from the right-click menu in AirMail 2.5.5. Only Copy Link is available.

              • Make a placeholder list item during long undo operations

                When you're a hard-core zero inboxer, you make archive/delete mistakes all the time - that means a lot of undoing. Of course I'm love archive/delete undo to be instant, but I get it, IMAP ain't that fast. But your current solution isn't good enough. Right now in beta 2.6, when I undo an archive, I absolutely no feedback that my action has been received. I've learned to wait about 3 seconds, but initially, I assumed the mac app was broken and I ended up hitting undo ten times, which lead to unwanted results. Instead, just put a placeholder message in…

                • Can't delete message in conversation

                  With emails in conversation view you cannot delete a message. This should be default functionaility.

                  • Shift + Space Bar = Page Up

                    Shift + space bar should scroll the page up. Right now space bar scrolls the message down -- this would compliment that well.

                    • Bring Back Mute as Menu Option

                      In a recent version of Airmail, the mute option was removed. It is still available using a hotkey but it would be great if it was put back in as a menu option.

                      • Swipe interaction is too sluggish and not responsive

                        I have given up trying to use swipe with my Macbook Pro (Retina 13" ... a fast machine!). The animation is too sluggish, and I have to swipe too far (like, more than halfway across the trackpad). It's painful.

                        • Improve handling of email links in message body

                          AirMail lets the OS decide what to do with an email link. So if I'm using a computer where the default email program is NOT AirMail, but I'm using AirMail to view the message, when I click an email link, the system unexpectedly attempts to open another program to create the email. Please have AirMail intercept email links so that when an AirMail user clicks on one, AirMail's Compose window always opens. If there is currently any preference to control this, its default setting should be to behave this way.

                            • Clicking on some messages opens a blank pane

                              Sometimes when I click on a message to read it Airmail opens the pane, displays the correct title and addresses, but the message body remains blank.

                              If I reply to the message, the body correctly appears quoted in the composer window.

                              If the message is part of the conversation, minimising and maximising will cause the message to appear. This seems to be happening with both my Exchange and Gmail accounts.

                              • Select multiple mails with shift-J / shift-K

                                I love the inline keyboard shortcuts of Airmail - and especially navigation with J/K instead of using arrow up and down. Only thing missing is the shift-arrow equivalents for selecting multiple mails. I do that all the times: Selecting these four, archiving them. Selecting the next three, snooze them. And this would be perfected with the shift-J and shift-K keyboard shortcuts. <3

                                • Swipe Multiple Selected Emails

                                  When you have multiple threads selected if would be very helpful if you could swipe them all at the same time. I switched over from MailBox (thanks for adding snooze!) and you could batch swipe emails with ease. This helps when your snoozing a large amount of emails or archiving or deleting.

                                  • Keep new message window in front when toggling between apps

                                    As you write a new message its useful to toggle between apps to get information, drag and attachment etc.. But when I toggle back to Airmail the composer window is always in the back making things like drag and drop impossible unless I plan ahead of time and place my inbox and composer window side by side. The composer window should stay in front when toggling back to Airmail.

                                      Please allow me to group certain mail accounts. As with a 'unified inbox', I would like to be able to unify two or three email accounts.

                                      I have two or three addresses come in from the same domain: accounts@, info@, sales@, and would really love the functionality of having them grouped together with colour coding delineating which email corresponds to each address.

                                      This would be amazing!

                                      • Add a "Send and Snooze" button option when sending a message - like send and archive

                                        I love the "Send and Archive" button, but often I need to Send and then snooze so I can make sure an item was followed up on or completed by whomever I'm sending it to. So can we add a "Send and Snooze" button to the composer window when sending an email.. Click the button and it would open up the normal snooze option list, select the snooze and then the email would send.

                                        • Clicking on Airmail dock item should bring minimised window back on screen

                                          With other apps you can bring back a minimised screen by clicking on the apps Dock icon. With Airmail you need to click on the minimised Airmail window on the right hand side of the dock. Clicking on the dock icon does nothing. Minor, but pretty annoying.
