    • Mark "awaiting reply"

      I many mail conversations, you often end up, where you are awaiting a reply on a mail from the recipient. Those kind of mail threads tend to stay in the inbox.

      I would like a feature, where I can mark a mail thread as "awaiting reply" and the thread should then be hidden (like in snooze) until I get a reply and at that point, the thread should move back to the inbox.

      The even more advanced edition of this idea is, that I can define a "max wait" time, so that if I have not had a reply for…

      • move emails to folder should always remove all all copies

        You copy emails to a folder (copy from folder X --> Y). Now you go to folder Y and want to remove the copied which are inside folder X, it would be super handy if you can do this from folder Y with the command "move to folder Y".
        So far you can only go back to folder X and select all mails which were copied and then say from there "move to folder Y". This can be very ugly if you copied many emails over time.

        • Support for gmail superstars

          I'm not sure how much this feature is still used by the majority of gmail users. I do have a pretty idiosyncratic way of organising my inbox.

          • Archive Messages from Inbox on a Schedule

            Email quickly becomes stale, can we have a feature that labels specific messages and archives them on a schedule as opposed to immediately.

            For example, maybe I want to archive all of my Read Inbox messages on a rolling 90 days or maybe I want specifically Archive all of my Calendar Notifications at the end of the day (they are useless after the meeting.)

            • Enable editing via ResEdit

              I'd love to see Airmail adopt the necessary APIs and tools to support ResEdit for greater UI customization. This would give me the ability to make the app look exactly how I want. This feature would be difficult to implement, as ResEdit was discontinued when OS9 was no longer supported, but with the proper emulation, I'm sure you could get it up and running- perhaps you could even include an OS9 emulator in Airmail itself! I'd love to use AppleWorks again, as I'm sure would everyone else too.

              • Apple Watch complications

                The title says it all: there are no "complications" on the first release of the iOS app which really is a shame.

                I'd love to see a minimalist complication (ie: a small letter with a badge count for unread mail, in the way Microsoft did it with Outlook complications) which could be added to the watch faces.. It would fix the only negative aspect of an otherwise full-featured and killer apple watch app. You know what you have to do!

                  • Put Snooze Icon on Main Toolbar (and clean up the icons)

                    When viewing an email right now and you want to snooze an email you have to click the "…" icon, then choose snooze. Can you please put a snooze icon right on the toolbar, so it can be a one click option?

                    The best solution would be to give users the ability to choose what items go on the toolbar.

                    A simple clock icon would do, but I'd also like to see the icons get cleaned up. They aren't very good looking on my retina Mac.

                    I loved how MailBox did it. See the attached image. Simple and clean!

                    • 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.

                      • Bring Back Redirect option!

                        Why did you guys get rid of Redirect!!! I use this all the time. Very upset to see this gone all of a sudden. Now I have to downgrade.

                        • Provide a switch to toggle an email account Offline/Online in left hand column/pane

                          Hi There;

                          It would be nice if you could provide a switch (say in left hand column/pane where the accounts are listed) to enable you to toggle an email account Offline/Online - so you don't have to go menu [Airmail] -> [Preferences ...] and then uncheck the "tick box" for the specific email account.

                          • Features from Email - EasilyDo Mail

                            Really needing lots of features from the recently released EasilyDo Mail app in the iphone app store (https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/email-easilydo-mail/id922793622?mt=8). Specifically categorizing Trips/Bills/Packages/Entertainment etc. and the ability to unsubscribe from email subscriptions without leaving the app. I'm extremely conflicted and almost ready to switch just for the ability to unsubscribe from junkmail very easily. Please make this a feature!

                            • Editing Received & Sent Emails

                              My favorite feature in the Postbox (Thunderbird-based) email client is the ability to edit the body of a text. I often add "notes" to myself within the body and then I can see my "notes" from any device or email client. This would be an excellent power user feature.

                              • Don't store attachments in Application Support folder, just download it.

                                It would be great to get an option to download files directly to Downloads folder without having a copy in Application Support folder, think about it like a link to a file that downloads (just like a web client)

                                    Just purchased and installed Aairmail Mac 2.0 and can't use as my godaddy IMAP accounts are not showing the folders I maintain (created in webmail or apple mail). Airmail needs to read this directly from the server and automatically add to the sidebar.

                                    • Mark text in received mail

                                      I receive mail with multiple tasks to do. I mark these mails as to-do.
                                      As I start doing the requests in the mail I would like to mark some of them as done or mark them for something else.

                                      In short it would be nice to change the color or background color of the content.

                                      • Make airmail:// reference links work with Archived messages

                                        When I send a message to Omnifocus (in either mobile or desktop client) a nice link is included so I can click on it and get my original email back. It looks like this: airmail://message?mail=foo%40bar.com&messageid=A99B22CC-7FAA-1B8D-0DA3-3808AD2BEE11%40bar.com

                                        Unfortunately, if the message is archived, and you're using the OSX version of Airmail, the link does not work. It works fine on the iOS version of Airmail.

                                        Can we make airmail:// links work on OSX like they do on iOS, and have the message appear even when it's been archived?

                                          Use abbreviations for pieces of text that you need often. Most iOS email apps have them but this essential feature seems to be missing.
