  1. Automatically suggest filters/rules

    I would like to have Airmail suggesting a filter in Gmail (if possible) or just just a local Rule, when I take repetitive actions.

    For instance, I drag all my emails relative to Amazon orders directly to a "Online Shopping" label always without any further action. I would appreciate if the app suggested creating a rule to send these messages directly to the "Online Shopping" label skipping the inbox, after some time doing this repetitive action.

    With this feature, I would have the benefits of great inbox rules without the pain of create the rules in the first place!

    • Import rules from Apple Mail

      When switching from Apple Mail to Airmail, it is a huge project to manually recreate years' worth of accumulated Mail rules within Airmail.

      It would be great to be able to import the existing SyncedRules.plist file into Airmail. Even if the rules required further customization from there to accommodate Airmail's different rules format and options, that would streamline things greatly!

      • Ability to apply a color to email text or background in message list, like Mail.app

        One of my most-used features in Apple Mail is using rules to apply color to either the text of an email in the message list, or a tinted background, or both.

        PLEASE add this to Airmal. It makes it so much easier to distinguish emails in the message list at a glance.

        Thank you!

        • regex

          Airmail is still amazing. Thank you.

          It would be even better if users could select a "matches regex" filter in addition to the other filters (contains, does not contain, begins with...) when creating a Rule.

          This would make message filtering way more powerful and flexible, and it seems like the implementation would not be difficult.

          • have 'OR' instead of just 'AND' rules

            current rules are 'AND', limiting rules possibilities. Although it is possible to create multiple rules to achieve the same outcome, have one rule with 'or' has much better semantics and minimises the number of rules

            • Add the ability to bounce emails to the rules.

              Add the ability to bounce emails to the rules so that incoming messages that match the rule can be bounced automatically without user intervention.

              • Rule Option: Do Not Send Notification

                I have several rules to filter certain types of mail (ads and newsletters, for example). These generally go like this: "Mark as Read", then "Move to folder x". But I still get OS X notifications for each of these emails. In Apple Mail, if I wrote a rule that said to mark a certain message as read, I would not see notifications for those emails. I would like similar functionality in Airmail, or at least the option to add "Do Not Send Notification" to my rules.

                • Mark as Read

                  Allow mail to be marked as read anytime the mail message appears in the message panel no matter how you get there. In other words as I quickly scan messages using the up/down arrow, mark them as read

                  • Raw source

                    I'd like to create complicated rules that reason on the raw source of an email, not just the visible message content.

                    Please provide "Message raw source" or maybe enable Plugin support for custom conditions (not just actions).

                    • I want to be able to construct rules which allow colouring to be set to bold / normal based on whether a message is read / unread.

                      On Outlook I was able to set the following:

                      1) unread messages where I am in to list in bold red
                      2) read messages where I am in to list in plain red
                      3) unread messages where I am in cc in bold blue
                      4) read messages where I am in cc in normal blue

                      This doesn't seem possible.

                      • Trigger rules on time/periodically

                        I use some labels: "Del after 1 Week", "... 1 Day", ...
                        Thats very handy for e.g. Newsletters or forum summaries which are out of date if the next one arrives.
                        But every E-Mail client I know only allows handling those only for incoming messages. The receive event is the trigger. Wouldn't it be nice if I can add a Rule, which is executed, say every day and filters thos labled mails and deletes them, if they're older than 1d or 1w? For every label I would add one rule.

                        • Rules conditions for header

                          In order to sort messages by header entries like "X-Mailer" it should be possible to select custom header entries in rule management. This could be an easy way to enable Spam-Management.

                          • better rules screen

                            The rules window needs to be improved to make it more understandable. As you can see in the attached screenshot the mailbox selection should go above the if statement.
                            That would make more sense since right now it looks like "any" single rule can activate the action which would mean "any mail in my inboxes" not just the ones that are true for the lines following the account selection line. In practice the way it works now is the rule checks the account/s I've chosen and then goes through the if/then on each of those rules. I've included a screenshot…

                              • Synchronise rules Outlook/Gmail/etc

                                I've been using Airmail instead of the Mac Mail or Outlook (itself) to read and write messages using my business Outlook account.

                                Recently I was trying to add a new filter rule for some messages and when I opened the "Rule Manager" tadah! I just noticed that, event though rules are working (what means messages are been placed on the right folders as I set it for), there's not rules in there!

                                Airmail isn't reading the list of rules I've set on my outlook account and, because that, I suppose that even though I set a new rule for something…
