Airmail Mac 3.x

How can we improve Airmail?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

  1. Composer overhaul

    I know this is rather a summary of different "ideas" and not all are new but I am afraid that 15+ ideas with 4-5 votes will never get the attention so I figured I'd just summarize them. So maybe it's me but I think proper email formatting is a basic functionality that should be given. The way the composer works today is beta status *at best*:

    * Everytime I add a bullet or numbered list via markdown editor, I get double spacing between the bullets/ list items (when I paste from Byword, it looks fine!)
    * In general, there is…

    • Different signatures for different recipients

      This solution I had in "The Bat" for Windows.

      When you type a recipient in TO: field, the signature changes based upon recipient email.

      You can define different signatures and connect them with different recipients and they are applied automatically.

      So you can define different signature for your friends, different for business partners and different for your mom :)

      And then you don't need to switch them manually so it saves time.

      The Bat had it like 10 years ago :)

      • Default 'from' email address to the inbox being selected

        I have 4 email addresses configured in Airmail. Right now when I pick an email inbox and then choose to compose an email, the 'from' field is defaulted to a particular email address. Each time I have to remember to select the correct from email address before I send which is proving to be a difficult task. Please automate the from email address to whichever inbox I have selected or to which email address the email was sent to in the first place.

        • email autosuggestion does not work when Airmail is fullscreen

          When I compose a new email and start typing an address or a person name while the airmail app is in fullscreen mode, autocompletion of email addresses from my contacts doesn't work. If I exit fullscreen mode, everything works as expected.

          • Automatically use different email signature for replies

            I can see that this idea has been suggested a couple of times previously but not had the attention it deserves, so this is an attempt to finally get a desperately needed feature added.

            Coming from MS Outlook, I really miss the ability to have a separate signature for new emails and one for replies and forwarding. I know that Airmail allows multiple signatures to be created, but manually selecting a different one for replies in tedious, time-consuming and simply doesn't make sense when using the Quick Reply feature!

            • Ability to set default font for markdown output

              So, even if I have my default font set on an account basis at Account -> Composer, if I compose a mail using markdown, the markdown output is always Helvetica.

              Another thing is, if you start your composer in Markdown as a default, the generated HTML already includes the font-family Helvetica. So the default font doesn't even get applied.

                When you are doing a bulleted List - the Tab key should move in the bullet - not add a Tabbed Space next to the bullet.

                • Clear text formatting (both mac and ios).

                  After pasting text into the composer i need to be able to clear it's formatting so it looks and acts the same as the default text. I need it after the fact as it's always an after thought and i've missed the chance to match formatting as you paste. I find myself wanting this whenever i paste into an email, which is 3 times a day.

                  • Remove RGB coloring to every paragraph

                    When we convert e-mails to Atlassian JIRA issue comments, these are simply unreadable.

                    • Font changes. Why?

                      I use a specific font when I compose my emails but after I send the email the font changes to Helvetica? It's so annoying. This makes the content of my email have a different font than my signature. It looks unprofessional and ugly. How to fix this?

                      • Set color for recipient names based on domain in Composer

                        (Existing mac os mail feature). There are scary stories about people accidently putting external recipients on CC of [top scret] internal emails. Also, never want to send confidential customer info to a wrong person because of autosuggestion typo for CCed name.

                        I'd like to configure recepient names colors in Composer by domain. Say, use blue for colleagues from my company, red for customer A, green for customer B and, say, brown for all other recipients. Being able to visually check the recipients removes a big part of email anxiety!

                        • Per-email rather than per-account signature

                          Add ability to choose the signature on the per-email rather than per-account basis. I like to use formal/informal signatures depending on the recipient and the only way currently is switch in the Preferences. Just add a pull-down menu of signatures in the email composer window.

                          • Confirm send & No attachment

                            I often compose a large business mail which is important and I alter and extend the content multiple times. And it happened to me multiple times, that I accidentally send the mail before it was finished. It would be great if there's an option which we can active for every mail, that when I hit the send button, a confirmation window shows up if we are sure, that the mail should be sent out.

                            Also, I often write in mails "I've attached you the document in this mail" etc. and then forget to add the attachment, please implement something like…

                              The templates feature is awesome, thanks for implementing! I just have a few small issues with it.

                              1. Embedded images saved in a template don't show up when using the template in an email.

                              2. When using a template to respond to an email, it erases all previous correspondence and only includes the template.

                                When typing in an URL, the link generation automatically triggers but incorrectly. See attached.

                                Link generation needs to detect all the new TLDs, like .digital, and others.

                                • Bring back tabbed "compose" windows

                                  AirMail used to allow you to have multiple messages you were composing be in the same window, just tabbed, much like MacOS Sierra works in Finder. The feature was removed a few months ago. Can it be brought back? Very helpful when composing multiple messages at once.

                                    • see bcc recipients

                                      In sent items I can not see my bcc recipients. This is a major flaw.

                                      • Quoting improvements

                                        As a coworker pointed out to me, at least in some circumstances Airmail is stripping quoting off emails (or not including it), making discussions difficult to follow. It'd be nice to fix this. I've attached example (person's original email + my reply -- both from a public mailing list).

                                        • Please support "copy to new email"
