  1. 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…

      • Mark all as read

        Is it possible to mark all as read quickly and easily, perhaps I have missed it but would love to know if it is available or in the pipeline

        • Turn sounds on and off for different actions individually

          I would like to keep the sound on when a message is sent, but I don't want to hear the sound every time a mail is deleted or moved to another folder. Instead of all sounds on or off, how about check boxes for which actions will have sounds.

          Thanks

          • Delete archived messages over a year old

            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.

              • 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.

                • 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

                  • Hide "Done" items

                    Be able to hide "Done" items (exactly like "Show Starred")

                    This would be a better/simpler workaround for this, and I think basically solves my problem:

                    • Waiting for Answer

                      You have an folder "answer awaited"

                      When you send out an email there should be an checkbox "answer awaited". This lasts in a copy of the send email into the folder "answer awaited".

                      If airmail receives new mails where the Subject starts with "Re:" oder "Aw:" etc. - Airmail checks if there is an email with the same subject in den "Answer awaited" folder. If so airmail moves this email to a folder called "answered" ... or something like that.

                      This would be a really great feature!

                      • Herald-like customizable notification popup

                        Herald (http://erikhinterbichler.com/apps/herald/ ) is a plugin for Mail.app that gives you a customizable notification popup. It's so much more powerful than standard banner popups, you can react very quickly to all sorts of emails right away. It would be great if you could add something like that to Airmail.

                          If you are looking at a message in a smart folder, you can't archive it. You should be able to.

                          • Please can there be more definition between READ and UNREAD messages?

                            If you look at gmail, the difference in styling between READ and UNREAD messages is very clear, i find the blue dot for unread is messy and doesn't help clearly define. A darker background would be clearer.

                              It would be nice to be able to set respond by context to the email, see attachment.

                              For instance , lets say i send an email out my team, instead of me saying in the body of the email i need this done by END OF DAY, and they miss it , i can set a label or a flag that add a something to the email that stands out,

                              options like

                              Im expecting a response by end of day
                              I need this done ASAP
                              Please review I'm not expecting a reply things like that

                                  Can you please do just like Mailbox app and just store the account details on the cloud? I have 4 devices and every time that I add one account I have to add in every single one of them.

                                  Also if one of the macs is erased, I have to add all accounts again it's very annoying.

                                    • calendar requests not showing correct time if coming from another time zone

                                      When calendar requests are sent from another time zone, there is no indication of this in the red calendar bar in the message.

                                      Instead, if a calendar request is sent from UTC+1 to a GMT location, it shows the time in the local time (11am instead of 10am) and does not indicate that its a different time zone.

                                      Ideally, the time shown should just say the local time of the event, using the recipients time zone, not the senders time zone. And if this isnt possible, then it should at least indicate a different time zone. Otherwise I would think…

                                      • empty trash key command

                                        Just a simple key command to empty all trash. On Apple Mail, it's a simple <Command><Delete>, same as finder. Would be nice to have the Apple standard follow through here too. At the moment, it's click on trash, click delete, confirm delete. One simple key command for this very often used activity!

                                        • Alias default based on recipient

                                          Short: it would be great to be able to save default alias to be chosen when writing to a particular recipient.

                                          Explanation: I use Airmail for three main accounts: work 1, work 2, personal. If I can send a personal mail with a work account (it won't harm) contacting a work 1's customer/colleague with work 2 alias could be awkward so a contacts based way to select optionally a default alias for a specific recipient would really help me in this. Also a forced "check before send" option that throws a popup asking to choose the alias before sending would…
