  1. Delete spam without downloading HTML content

    Allow deleting of messages from the messages list without loading the content into the detail pane. I can usually tell marketing spam from the snippet in the messages list, but cannot delete it without Airmail loading the full message, including dynamic content that lets the spammer know I'm a real person. MS Outlook provides a delete button for each message in the list, and clicking on that button deletes the message without loading its contents.

    And yes, I know I can turn off "Autoload Remote Images" in Preferences/Appearance, but then it affects all the email that I DO want to…

    • Provide a switch to toggle an email account Offline/Online in left hand column/pane

      Hi There;

      It would be nice if you could provide a switch (say in left hand column/pane where the accounts are listed) to enable you to toggle an email account Offline/Online - so you don't have to go menu [Airmail] -> [Preferences ...] and then uncheck the "tick box" for the specific email account.

      • Ability to drop my vCard (.vcf), my digital business card, into my signature

        as in other email programs, I want to ad my vCard, so that everybody who gets an email from me can easily add my address to his address book!

        • Different colors for Aliases

          Can you please add an option so that i can choose a different color for aliases instead of using the one from the main account?

          • Add "unread" as a search option for smart folders

            "Unread" isn't a search option, so we can't integrate it into a smart folder. This is valuable, for example, to set a workflow where i can find unread or starred items to a particular address. I use this in Apple Mail instead of my inbox and thus I see all new messages, or ones I've flagged for later.

            • VIP unread notification

              To be more specific regarding the VIP list. In Apple Mail I depended on the VIP list to show me if there were new (unread) emails for any given contact with a number to the right. This is a must have feature. Seems like it was just perhaps overlooked. Presently, the VIP list is simply a filter showing only email from that contact, read or unread. Please add - fix this asap! I have moved to Airmail on all devices... (5). I am swamped with email from multiple accounts... I need to know at a glance if important email is…

                • Delete without read the email

                  Sometimes I want to delete emails without opening the content, right now if I right clicked the email then this is opened automatically. I would love to have the option of deleting the email without showing the content (triggering some actions that the email could have behind)

                    As in AppleMail and other email clients please add a resizing feature so an email can be printed so it fits on one page.

                    • integrate labels into message list

                      It will be fantastic if the labels could be integrated into the message list. Currently I need to select a mail to see its labels which is annoying if you use labels intensely

                      • Make airmail:// reference links work with Archived messages

                        When I send a message to Omnifocus (in either mobile or desktop client) a nice link is included so I can click on it and get my original email back. It looks like this: airmail://message?mail=foo%40bar.com&messageid=A99B22CC-7FAA-1B8D-0DA3-3808AD2BEE11%40bar.com

                        Unfortunately, if the message is archived, and you're using the OSX version of Airmail, the link does not work. It works fine on the iOS version of Airmail.

                        Can we make airmail:// links work on OSX like they do on iOS, and have the message appear even when it's been archived?

                        • Themability

                          If not "one single email configuration fits every user", then also not "one single UI theme fits every user".

                          Since Airmail is already that much configurable, why aren't there any custom themes yet? A system where every user can make their own theme with a style guide we can share would be great.

                          • Different signatures on Mac and iOS

                            It would be nice to be able to disable syncing of signatures between the Mac and iOS applications, so that different signatures can be used on each device for a single email account. Currently it is only possible to use the same signature for each email account on all synced devices.

                            • Delete email from a push notification

                              When a notification comes in on my Mac (top right) it would be great to have the option to delete it right then. You offer the option to REPLY to the incoming email, and a DELETE option would be great as well. Apple Mail allows this. It’s a really quick & efficient way to delete something you immediately know you don’t need, rather than having to open the app.

                                  Having a single signature database from which all accounts could draw would greatly simplify the use of signatures. As it stands now, I have to enter the same signature into multiple accounts, which means multiple times. It's getting a bit annoying having to do this again and again.

                                    A self-destruct action would be like a snooze action, except that instead of resurfacing at a particular time, the email would automatically move to the Trash or Archive (per a preference setting).

                                    This would be very useful for limited-time offers, newsletters, etc., that might have a limited shelf life. If an offer from a retailer is going to expire in two weeks, I might want to keep the email around in case I decide to shop at the store before then. But I don't need a bunch of expired offers littering my email.

                                    Even better: If the app could use…

                                    • 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!

                                      • Use color labels

                                        I use an independent mail provider. In Apple Mail you can put multiple labels in different colors on one message, what I use a lot. But when I use a label in Apple Mail, Airmail just put a star on the mail despite how many labels/flags and which color I put on a message in Apple Mail. Please fix that. As I had to buy your app to find this out, because there is no trial version.

                                        • Enable "Trash" button option for incoming Notifications (like the Mac Mail app)

                                          You know how the native Mac Mail app has two button options for incoming mail notifications banners, "Trash, and Reply"? Yeah, we need that in Airmail :)
