  1. 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. If i delete a mail of a conversation the deleted mail ave the deleted label but stays in the converstaion. If a delete a conversation the conversatiion…

    • 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.

      • 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

        • 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…

              • Password protected inbox

                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.

                • 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!

                    • When you type V to move to folder it will only show the folder if it starts with the text

                      Moving to a folder you click V and then type text. The folders only show if the folder starts with the text. It should be smart enough to show all folders with the word.

                        • 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…

                          • 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.

                              • 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.

                                  • Change the Account Creation using the email Address

                                    Hello,

                                    The Account Creation should not be linked to the email address I believe. It should have some other free Text form or some other format. Since this prevents creating another email account with the same address when we want to preserve of existing mails when the email server is getting retired or changed

                                    There is not much thought process is been done on this i presume

                                    This feature would improve the value of the mail client

                                    • 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.

                                      • Create a Recently Downloaded bin

                                        I'd like to suggest creating a recently downloaded bin within Airmail. I'd like to be able to click a button that opens a small window (within Airmail) that would allow me to see my most recent downloads in chronological order so that I could easily retrieve a recently downloaded document.

                                        thanks!

                                        • Allow true custom shortcuts

                                          Gmail allows remapping the shortcut keys (I remap "go down" from 'j' to 'n' as I use an alternative keyboard layout). It'd be great if Airmail either read the shortcuts I use or allowed me to remap the vi-style ones as well as the system ones. Also, '?' should bring up a list of shortcuts. That's a very handy feature that Gmail, Facebook, and GitHub all use.
