  1. 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.

      • Set a folder to which a new message is moved after it is sent

        I used a plugin in Apple Mail (either Mail Act-On or MailTags) that allows me to set a folder to which a new message is moved after it is sent.

        I prefer to use a hierarchical system of folders for archiving my emails, and it is so much easier to tag a new message before I send it than it is to send it, then go to the 'sent' folder and move it from there to where I want it.

        • Highlighted email

          A highlighted email becomes unhighlighted when you click away from Airmal, say back to Finder.
          When you return back to Airmail, your last highliged email is no longer highligted, so becomes a task to find the one you were last looking at.
          Please leave the email highlighted.

          • Create Web App

            Hey Just wanted to see if creating a Web Based app for access to all platforms is in the future. I am stuck using a chromebook for work but I love your app. If you had a Web App it would allow me to use your awesome program on my chromebook.

            • Hide signature blocks by default

              For example Mailbox app and many traditional *nix email clients have this really nice functionality that hides signature blocks after "-- " by default, which makes reading lengthy email threads much faster. However, you should be able to expand and read them if you wish.

              That is many companies that nowadays choose use signatures which contain all possible ways to contact, disclaimers, advertisements, cat pictures etc. resulting in several paragraphs of noise and annoyance.

                • Is there a regular version of the app in the works?

                  I read great reviews for the application(!), but was sad to see you can only get it through the App Store. Are there plans to release a full featured version (e.g., w/o artificial sandboxing and the like)?

                  • Auto update "To Read" area

                    I would LOVE to see the "To Read" section refresh just like the regular email. Currently, if I get any new mail while I'm in the "To Read" area, I can't see it unless I leave the area and come back, or go to the inbox it's in or All Inboxes. I would use the "To Read" area as my primary view for Airmail, actually, except I would never know I've got new emails if that's all I ever stay in

                    • antivirus

                      It would be great if you included the ability to support antivirus scanning engines for mail attachments.

                      What would be even more awesome is if you supported something even more powerful like a milter interface so that airmail could leverage a "standard" api to have email processed by a secondary applications:

                        • Default to inbox for todoist integration

                          I have a lot of projects in Todoist and therefore it is time consuming to find the right list when forwarding an email to Todoist. The inbox is at the bottom and that means scrolling. I would like the feature that if I click on "todoist" it automatically goes to my inbox in Todoist and if I want to I can instead choose a specific project. That would speed up things tremendously.

                          • Would be great to be able to distinguish a 'resent snoozed' message from a new message.

                            Like is done in Mail Pilot. Mail Pilot is the buggiest app, but has the greatest workflow for email ever.

                            • Package Tracking

                              I know there are dedicated package tracking apps out there, but to do it seamlessly and automatically they have to scan your mailbox for tracking numbers. I think it makes a lot of sense for it to be integrated into your email application. It's probably a tall order, but I think it would be awesome to have a dedicated section that detects email with tracking numbers in it and has a view designed specifically to show you their status. Maybe down where the To Do and Spam and Memo sections are. It wouldn't need to be too complex or have…

                                    After digging though my drive, I noticed that airmail is using 3gb of space for archived messages. I enjoy searching for recent messages in the archives, but I rarely need messages over a year old. If there was a way to ignore or delete old emails, this will provide extra space on my disk.

                                    • Ability to reset only one folder

                                      I can rebuild a whole account so that all messages are re-downloaded. This is good but not very practical when there is a lot of messages in that account, so I'd like to be able to rebuild just one folder or mailbox.

                                        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.

                                        • Reuse user name with different providers

                                          Now that Apple has allowed iCloud accounts to have any user name, I have used my Gmail email address (in full). When I've set up Airmail, I have been told I cannot have a Gmail account and an iCloud account with the same user name ... which is silly, because it is with 2 different providers! Please allow this functionality
