    • 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)

      • Allow resizing of printed emails

        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

          • Send and Label

            Hey, this would be really great and easy to implement:

            Just as you can currently "Send and Archive" a message with a single click, you should add the option to "Send and Label as [user selected label] " with a single click.

            For example, I currently label the messages that I send and need to follow up with as "Waiting for...". Currently I must send the message, go to the Sent Mail folder and manually label the sent message. With this new feature I could just use the "Send and Label as Waiting For..." and the sent message would get…

            • Show other recipients without having to click

              In order to see if there are other recipients (and who they are), I have to click on the tiny downward arrow (screenshot attached). I would like a preference to always display recipients in the preview pane. The audience of an email is critical context for reading and responding to it. Thank you, Tony

              • 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.

                    • 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.

                      • Collective Signatures

                        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.

                        • Message self-destruct setting

                          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…

                          • 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 :)

                            • The buttons for reply, forward and forward-all disappears when scrolling an email.

                              The buttons for reply, forward and forward-all disappears when scrolling an email. This is very odd, considering that I most often want to reply to a mail when i've read it all, implying that it has been scrolled to the bottom - but then the buttons are gone. Very odd design choice.

                                Instead of interrupting me every time an email comes in, it would be nice for Airmail to check the server at a selected interval, i.e. every hour. Apple Mail does this for all accounts.

                                • 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.

                                  • using conversations in Draft folders should be separate option from using convos in Sent

                                    Settings has a checkbox for "use conversations in Sent and Drafts folders". It is one checkbox for both folders; it should be two separate checkboxes.

                                    Conversations in Draft folders gets very confusing to figure out which message in the thread is your (unsent) draft, especially if it should happen that the conversation proceeds forward (ie, more people start sending more emails to you) before you have managed to get back to your draft and finish and send it. Finding where your draft message went in the display is difficult. So for Drafts, far better to be able to disable conversations.

                                    • 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?

                                      • enable or disable automatic synchronization of email accounts based on time or days

                                        enable or disable automatic synchronization of email accounts based on time or days
