  1. 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.

      • 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!

          • unstrap

            Make it possible to unstar all messages. Airmail has decided I have 10K of starred messages and can only fix that 3 at a time

            • 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.

                • To do list sidebar

                  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.

                                • Enable/disable collection of email addresses

                                  We have a policy at work not to auto collect email addresses to prevent the autocomplete/user to make the mistake of sending the email to johndoe@thenewyorktimes.com instead of johndoe@client.com.
                                  We fill the address book with only internal addresses so mistakes stay within the company.

                                  So the only way we are allowed to use airmail is if we can prevent the collection of addresses.
                                  Please make it an option which we can disable.

                                      I'd be very happy to have 2 different tones (dark and bright) on Airmail depending on the hour of the day...
                                      BlueMail offers this already. It's a blessing to read email early morning without wearing sun glasses:)

                                        • I will move to Airmail if 1) move folder between local mailboxes 2) export all emails to mbox format in case of need of change client

                                          1) need to move folder between local mailboxes - it's crucial. Outlook, Thuderbird have it, why AirMail doesn't?

                                          2) In case of need of change mail client I'd like to export all my e-mails with folders from local mailbox to any mbox format, etc. Why it is not there, while all other mail clients have it?
