  1. A schedule interval for checking email

    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.

    • count unread

      cannot see count of unread messages under "Today", "Unread", VIP contacts, etc. Is there a setting I am missing or this does not exists?

      • sync flags with Apple Mail. Both colour and label

        I use Apple Mail and all my mail is flagged with a different colour for "business",Interests" etc etc. I prefer to use Airmail though and would like it to pick up Apple Mail flags and labels and allow me to use the same in Airmail.
        Thanks

        • Default alias should be per account

          I have two accounts. Each should have its own default alias for outgoing mail.

          • Restore the "Directional Selection" option in Airmail 3

            It used to be possible in Airmail 2 to select this in preferences (which option took me ages to find in the first place!). Now if I start deleting messages from oldest first, the message automatically moves down rather than up the list, which is really irritating!

            • 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.

              • possibility to add custom folder in "hide Folder" options in view is enable

                Hi !

                It can be great to add custom folder to the left little menu when "hide folder" view option is enable.

                For example, here it can be really nice if I can add my Notifications or Family folder in the left panel, and more awesome, get a badge count !

                • Load favicons from senders's domain

                  Like the gravatar functionality.
                  If no gravatar is found, load the domain's favicon instead.

                    • Editing Received & Sent Emails

                      My favorite feature in the Postbox (Thunderbird-based) email client is the ability to edit the body of a text. I often add "notes" to myself within the body and then I can see my "notes" from any device or email client. This would be an excellent power user feature.

                        enable or disable automatic synchronization of email accounts based on time or days
                        this would no longer receive business email from a certain time on weekdays or weekends for example.

                          • Mark text in received mail

                            I receive mail with multiple tasks to do. I mark these mails as to-do.
                            As I start doing the requests in the mail I would like to mark some of them as done or mark them for something else.

                            In short it would be nice to change the color or background color of the content.

                              Hi, I, love the "Share" button, it makes it easy to share a document by e-mail.

                              Idea: add an option to
                              1) Share by new e-mail;
                              2) Share to existing conversation.

                              Thanks

                              • Allow mapping from one account to another

                                When configuring the IMAP settings for a given account, it would be great if one could map the category of one account to an IMAP folder of another. For instance, I have one account with strict limits on mailbox size. It would be great if archiving from this account could automatically transfer to the archive folder of my account with unlimited space.

                                    • 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!
