  1. Please Allow Customization of the Condensed Sidebar

    I'd like customization options for the sidebar in condensed view. Currently, in normal view, you can customize your favorites, or the folders that appear in the sidebar. In condensed view, though, only the default favorites show. I'd like to be able to see my chosen favorites only in the condensed sidebar, rather than the favorites chosen by default.

      Allow users to save custom views. For example I'd like to sometimes use a view of Inbox showing Unread Messages, sorted by Sender then by Date. Then be able to revert to another view showing all messages, sorted by Date.

      • remember my search history

        Search history. I want Airmail to remember past searches as a dropdown list as I start typing a search. In the same day I will often repeat the same search. As I switch views I lose my search and have to go back and re-create it. This is particularly true because I cannot have multiple inbox windows (will request separately).

          • Make banners interactive too

            Currently we're able to set actions for quick access from the OS X notifications, which is a neat little feature. However, those notifications always require a manual action to disappear. If we could set the same quick access-actions for banners, we could decide whether we want to take action or simply let the banner fade away.

            • Conversation Support

              The ability to deal with a single mail inside a conversation adding labels, delete or move email of a conversation without affecting all the other messages of the conversation.
              E.g. if I move a single mail in a converstaion in anew folder the single mail is also moved to the folder but remains in the conversation. The same applying a label to a single mail of a conversation, without affecting the remaining messages.

              • Use "Move to [folder" again

                Have context-sensitive menu display "Move to [previous folder]". After you move a message or messages to a folder, remember that folder and display it when messages are selected. 9 times out of 10, that's what I want to do.

                • Add the standard OSX menubar item: "Window > Zoom"

                  Add the standard OSX menubar item: "Window > Zoom"

                  Practically every Mac app ever has had this menubar item. I don't understand why Airmail developers would remove it or not include it.

                  With every app I use, I know I can count on the CMD+Shift+Z keyboard shortcut (set in System Preferences > Keyboard > Shortcuts) to re-size an app's window size between my preferred max & min sizes.

                  But with Airmail, I have to either manually resize the Airmail app, or ALT+Click the green window button (which I never do), or find some loophole in BetterTouchTool… but nothing works and/or…

                      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

                      • 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…

                        • 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!

                                I have kids, and i get mails that i want to "hide" from the kids and anyone else that i don't want to read my private mails, lets say from my lawyer. I would love to see a feature where you can password protect the whole app or just the inboxes, like i could chose to keep my iCloud inbox "open" but my Outlook inbox password protected. Been searching for mail clients that can do this but no success so far.

                                  • Fuzzy/partial search for folder operations (move to folder, etc.)

                                    Having hit "v" to move a message to a folder, I can only find the folder "Teaching/Admin Hiring" by entering a search string starting "Tea..." Unfortunately, I sometime remember only part of the name of a folder. I'd like to be able to find this folder by typing any part of its name: "Admin" or "Hiring". MailActOn for AppleMail also allows me to match this folder with "Tea/Adm", which would be nice.

                                    • Put message count on "To Read"

                                      Put the message count on the "To Read" folder so you know how many messages are unread across all accounts.

                                      • Pinning folders from multiple accounts to sidebar

                                        As with most users, I have multiple email accounts even within our business. It would be nice to pin active folders from these accounts so that it makes it easier to manually select where they go when they are in the unified inbox.

                                        • Viewing and working with multiple email addresses

                                          I'd like to have a way to easily see all the emails in the To:, CC:, etc. fields at once and to be able to copy them all at once.

                                          In Apple's Mail.app, I just have to select the field to see the addresses and copy them. In Airmail, from what I can tell, I can only copy one email at a time from the down arrow by the from address. I also have a limited view of all the email addresses in each field which is problematic if there's a long list.

                                          There are a few requests for copying…
