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".
(thinking…)

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. 'Pending Reply' Filter

    Canary Mail had a great filtering feature allowing you to see only email that has been read, but had not yet been responded to.

    It could be another icon with the other filters (see circle on image). It's a way to see, at a glance, the mail awaiting your response.

    • Text Encoding selectable for mails

      Sometimes it shows contents of the mail with incorrect text encoding (i.e. Chrinese-Big5 incorrectly selected as UTF-8). And I could not choose the right one to show contents correctly. Just like Mail for OS X, Airmail should support this feature in the future!

      • PLEASE allow the "send e-mail" button to be removed from the touchbar

        I have accidentally sent 10+ incomplete e-mails because my finger grazes the touchbar when entering numbers. Being able to move or eliminate the "send" button would prevent this embarrassment that I never suffered with the standard keyboard app.

        • AppleScript support for the date of emails

          Please add AppleScript support to get the date of an email. Now you can get the sender, the subject, the recipient and the body out of Airmail with AppleScript, but not the date.

          • Add support for Gmail Categories

            Add support for Gmail auto-labels / Categories;

            ie: Social, Promotions, Updates, Forums and work the way gmail does by hiding messages that fall into those categories from the main inbox.

            • Hide "Done" items

              Be able to hide "Done" items (exactly like "Show Starred")

              This would be a better/simpler workaround for this, and I think basically solves my problem:

              • mark emails while composing

                It would be great if there was an option when composing an email to flag addresses. Example, in Apple Mail, you can toggle an option to flag addresses not ending in @work.com. This is a great option when using your work email, so you don't accidentally send a work related item to a friend, or to a colleague's personal email. It simply highlights the address in red when you are composing your email.

                • Font size control

                  I can find no way to permanently set larger display fonts. On my 27" retina display, the fonts are painfully small. I'm considering giving up on the app entirely because of this basic, simple problem. Please, give us a way to set ALL font sizes in the app (display, in-message, everything).

                  • Read Receipts / Tracking Notification Every time email is opened

                    I like how the 'Read Receipt' works, however, I do not like how it only shows a receipt the first time the recipients opens the email. Rather, I believe that the user should receive a notification every time the user opens the email. As an everyday user or even a sales professional, it would showcase that the email is being read, but no response has been given. It might spark to send a quick follow up sparking a response.

                    • Waiting for Answer

                      You have an folder "answer awaited"

                      When you send out an email there should be an checkbox "answer awaited". This lasts in a copy of the send email into the folder "answer awaited".

                      If airmail receives new mails where the Subject starts with "Re:" oder "Aw:" etc. - Airmail checks if there is an email with the same subject in den "Answer awaited" folder. If so airmail moves this email to a folder called "answered" ... or something like that.

                      This would be a really great feature!

                        • Alias default based on recipient

                          Short: it would be great to be able to save default alias to be chosen when writing to a particular recipient.

                          Explanation: I use Airmail for three main accounts: work 1, work 2, personal. If I can send a personal mail with a work account (it won't harm) contacting a work 1's customer/colleague with work 2 alias could be awkward so a contacts based way to select optionally a default alias for a specific recipient would really help me in this. Also a forced "check before send" option that throws a popup asking to choose the alias before sending would…

                          • Herald-like customizable notification popup

                            Herald (http://erikhinterbichler.com/apps/herald/ ) is a plugin for Mail.app that gives you a customizable notification popup. It's so much more powerful than standard banner popups, you can react very quickly to all sorts of emails right away. It would be great if you could add something like that to Airmail.

                              It'd be great to be able to drag emails to a sidebar that becomes a 'to do' list... I've made a folder but a sidebar (with an option to hide) is better ;)

                              • calendar requests not showing correct time if coming from another time zone

                                When calendar requests are sent from another time zone, there is no indication of this in the red calendar bar in the message.

                                Instead, if a calendar request is sent from UTC+1 to a GMT location, it shows the time in the local time (11am instead of 10am) and does not indicate that its a different time zone.

                                Ideally, the time shown should just say the local time of the event, using the recipients time zone, not the senders time zone. And if this isnt possible, then it should at least indicate a different time zone. Otherwise I would think…

                                      Often emails are related even though in different threads. The ability to link threads somehow would be very useful.

                                      • Enable permanent deletion of email. Or disable archiving of deleted email. Basically now

                                        I thought that I had been deleting emails when I sent them to trash and then emptied the trash. Unfortunately it looks like Airmail is somehow archiving ALL email even after it's been deleted. I just found gigabytes of old email that I thought had been permanently deleted. You can test this by doing a search for old email that otherwise should have been deleted. Seriously this is a deal breaker. There MUST be a way to permanently delete email instead of archiving it forever.
