  1. Attachments Hard to Find

    It's too hard to find attachments. It's routinely takes several minutes for me to figure out how to get to them in a long thread. Ideally, I could just click the paperclip or see a separate pane at the bottom.

    • Unread Badge Count for all Folders, not just Inbox

      I use Exchange account and folders.
      I see my badge count is equals of inbox folder, but not for all folders.

      • Highlight messages with label color

        This used to be the default behavior, but changed in the latest update to Airmail 2.0 - label colors now only highlight the top right corner of the message which for me makes them much harder to see.

        I used this feature extensively to visually distinguish messages - I would love if this came back.

        • New icon. Improve the overall design and animations - cleaner, smoother. Attention to detail.

          Spend time perfecting what's already there, making it beautiful, and work really well. Airmail doesn't need any more major "features" as such, what does need to happen is refining what's there.

          • in-line reply editing

            If someone sends you an email with say, 10 questions, when you reply using Airmail, you can't say, "See my answers in red below," and then answer each question, because nothing that is shown from the original email is editable! Not sure why this is, but it would make me a hundred million times more productive when using AIrmail.

            • TOOLBAR IMPROVEMENTS

              You really need to make the toolbar better. I like BIG ICONS, I like to
              be able to SPREAD THEM APART so I don't accidentally hit the wrong one because I go through a lot of email each day, so I like the icons to be
              easily identified as in COLORED ICONS (see the POSTBOX app). Please change this!

              • Focus Mode for composing emails

                Apps like iA writer and Markdown have a Focus Mode that only highlight the sentence you're currently typing and fade out the rest. That would be an awesome feature for composing emails:
                Example: http://images.computerwoche.de/images/computerwoche/bdb/1842754/890.jpg

                • UI Font is too small/light

                  The font in the sidebars/interface is way to light to be easily readable.

                  It would be nice to allow us to select bolder or larger readable fonts.

                  I've attached some screenshots to illustrate what I mean

                  • Improve visibility of messages in a conversation

                    Improve visibility of messages in a conversation to allow seeing messages in a conversation on the message list. This would also allow deleting a single message in a thread.

                    • Make Accounts Hierarchical / Support Account Groups

                      I very much need a feature to group Mail Accounts like e.g. in the Postbox or Thunderbird apps. I have more than a dozen accounts, some of which are for specific purposes.

                      So I like a group of "priority" accounts.
                      another group of "private" accounts,
                      yet another group of "-Commerce" accounts,
                      plus a group of "mailing list" accounts etc...

                      Each with separate unified inbox, customizable notifications, the option to quickly switch per group, a GUI feature to collapse / expand all contained accounts etc.

                      And the top feature would also be to have accounts be part of multiple groups (even…

                      • Data Time Selectors On Snooze Settings Do Not Respect Regional Settings

                        When regional settings are set to use 24 hour clock, snooze preferences still use the am/pm 12 hour clock system. Time settings in preferences should respect the system's regional settings.

                        • Sync customized swipes between iOS and Mac

                          On iOS, you can customize your swipes in the message list, and there are two levels of swipes on the left and the right.

                          On the Mac, there's only one level of swipe, and the actions are non-customizable, which is bad for muscle memory.

                            • Stop switching app window on deleting emails from OSX notification banner.

                              After clicking on the "Bin" button in OSX notification banner it changes from current active application to Airmail. Ideally I'd like to bin an email without having to switch to Airmail view. This is how it works in OSX's Mail.app.

                              Details:
                              OSX El Capitan 10.11.1, Airmail 2 Version 2.5.5 (335)

                              • unread message count keeps changing

                                for some reason, the unread message count in "all mailboxes' always shows a larger number until I click on it, then it syncs and drops down to the "real" count. Do I have something set incorrectly. I'd like to know the true unread message count no matter what folder I am in.

                                • Quick reply keyboard shortcut conflict

                                  Normally when editing text, cmd-left and cmd-right work like Home and End keys (important on a Macbook which lacks these keys). In the Quick Reply mode, this is overridden by shortcuts for hiding and displaying message detail. So, intending to move the cursor to the start of the line instead hides the message and quick reply entirely! This message detail show/hide shortcut should be disabled when editing in the quick reply box, so the standard home/end shortcuts work properly.

                                  • Arrow icon showing when you replied to a message

                                    When you forward an email from your inbox, an arrow shows next to that message showing that you forwarded that message, but when you reply to a message, there's no arrow. I consistently forget if I responded to an email and then have to search through my sent items to see if I replied or not.

                                    • A plugin for for time tracking

                                      Time tracking apps (e.g., Timings) use the window title to track usage. But the main window exposes no info about the current email via window title.

                                      • Multiple window view

                                        I would like to be able to have more than one folder open at the same time, ideally in different windows. Often I have a specific search result in the main window and before I am finished working on those results I need to look at my inbox or review some other folder. I would like to be able to right-click on a folder (like All Inboxes) and select "Open in new window"

                                        • Show labels only when they contain unread messages

                                          Gmail has a feature where you can choose to only show a label in the label list if it has unread messages within it. I would love to see such a feature in Airmail.

                                          Some backstory: I have set up many filters to put messages into various labels (bypassing the inbox) where I treat them as todo lists. When every label is visible at the same time, the UI is a bit overwhelming and it can be difficult to tell which label needs my attention. When labels are only visible when unread messages are within, it's easy to see what…
