  1. Day/time based scheduling of email fetching (per account)

    Enable (per account) day/time based scheduling of fetching email.

    E.g. I have 3 email accounts, 1 personal and 2 business/company accounts. I want to schedule the personal account to fetch mail 24h 7 days a week and the company ones e.g. from Mon-Fri from 7am to 6pm.

    • Offset message when dragging

      When dragging a message from the list to a folder can you offset the message from the cursor so it is easier to see where the cursor is and which folder it is hovering over?

      • Add "unread" as a search option for smart folders

        "Unread" isn't a search option, so we can't integrate it into a smart folder. This is valuable, for example, to set a workflow where i can find unread or starred items to a particular address. I use this in Apple Mail instead of my inbox and thus I see all new messages, or ones I've flagged for later.

        • When you try to select a large portion of an email for copying you can only copy what is shown in the window.

          When you try to select a large portion of an email for copying you can only copy what is shown in the window. It would be good to enable the scroll and select function.

          • 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

            • email accounts only for sending mails

              I tried Airmail which is better than Thunderbird. I forward all emails from other accounts to my gmail account. When replying to those emails out of Thunderbird it uses the original outbound email service.

              Unfortunately, in Airmail I cannot create email account only with an SMTP server only.

              Therefore, I would like to see this feature in Airmail as well

              • 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.

                • Dark text color on lighter colored labels

                  Dark text color when using lighter label background colors.

                  For example, my yellow label currently has the default white text color, which is hard to read. A darker text color would be more sufficient.

                  • 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

                      • Feature request: highlight *something* when searching

                        Hi. Maybe it's just me, but I'll often leave Airmail open with a search term in the search bar. Thus, later on, a quick glance at the program makes it look like there are no new mails. I have to stop and consciously check to see if I'm searching for something and that's why.

                        I would like to see some kind of visual cue that a search is in progress - maybe as simple as dimming the top bar and/or highlighting the search box. Just something so you can see when you glance that you're not in the Inbox.

                        Thanks.

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

                          • move email to last local folder used

                            With a large number of local folders, going through the entire classification tree for every single email which should end up in the same local folder is boring... (for example one original email and its answer are in two separate Imap folders : Incoming mail and Sent. I cannot select them at the same time and direct them to the same local folder once treated...
                            Mail.app has this function : "move to the last folder used", and once a series of email is treated, sending all the series of emails to the "last folder used : XXX" would save time.

                                    Just like it sounds - create custom actions/workflows through chaining of built-in actions.

                                    Example workflows (that I currently chain manually):
                                    1. In the message list: Send to OmniFocus, then Archive.
                                    2. In the Compose windows: Send Email, then find sent email, and send copied email to OmniFocus

                                    The second implies custom Send actions in the Compose window...

                                    • photo browser

                                      With the apple mail and the iPad version airmail you can select photos directly from the photo app, and they are loaded at a reasonable size into the letter, and the photo is displayed without having to download an image,
                                      I would prefer this method, with notability you can even re-size and move the photos, that would be the ultimate, however if I ever require to email a photo along with a letter, I could always use another app,

                                      • Manually send delayed message

                                        I love that Airmail has duplicated the gmail feature of delaying messages, but I've often found myself mildly annoyed by having to wait around for messages to send (unlike gmail, where the message sends immediately if you simply leave the page you sent the message from). So, I'm wondering if you could simply make a new dialog box for messages waiting to send along the lines of "Send Now." You already have a "Cancel" button on messages waiting to send; so, I would think that this would be easy to implement, and nice to have the option to manually force…

                                        • return if no response

                                          I'm almost at the point where I'd like to revisit Airmail but I just don't think it meets the needs other platforms are able to provide.

                                          For example, it would be amazing to have the Boomerang type features to recall an email IF it isn't responded to by a set amount of time. (Similar to snooze, but with more options and usefulness)
