  1. Support for Flags/Starred for Non-Gmail IMAP

    Currently the Starred section is mapped to Starred on Gmail mailboxes - or - shows mails manually Starred within Airmail

    I don't use Gmail, I use a Premium provider and would like to have a function to support 'Flags' or using the 'Starred' section such that it automatically updates within Airmail and allows you so search/sort/filter on them

    Currently, mails Flagged in iPhone do show as Starred in Airmail but do not show automatically in the Starred section.

    See support thread https://airmail.tenderapp.com/help/discussions/airmail-beta-226/31-issue-with-refresh-on-starred-items

    • Fold main-folder with sub-folders, so that only the main-folder is shown

      Currently, if you have a folder with some sub-folders in your imap account, all folders are shown. It would be nicer, if you could fold the main folder, that the sub-folders aren't shown.

      • Allow User to move folders between accounts

        The purpose of this feature is to make it easier for users to migrate between email providers , such as going from Google to Office 365, or similar use case. For example: A user moves their DNS domain to the new provider, updates DNS records, and now wants the same email and folders in the new mailbox. Currently, they need to manually create destination folders, select emails in the old folder, and use the transfer to menu option to initiate the transfer,

        My idea is to let them click and drag the folder from the old mailbox to the new…

        • Unread count in nested subfolder

          I have message filters (server side) that move messages from certain senders to subfolders automatically. I can see the unread count when the subfolders are directly visible (parent folder is expanded) but when the parent folder is collapsed it would be nice for the collapsed folder to show the unread count for itself and all child folders contained within. Otherwise I have to keep expanding the parent folders to check to see if any child folders contain new messages.

          • Copy of Archive folder on own computer

            Hi,
            please improve the Airmal with the feature to backup the Archive folder on computer local disk. No synchronisation, just to copy newly Archived emails (in Google, Yahoo,... mail) to the local HDD.

            • Inbox - Show Time of Day (i.e. 11:23am) next to received date for prior days

              Inbox - Show Time of Day (i.e. 11:23am) next to received date for past days. Very helpful in quick scanning of full inbox to find a piece of mail - time of day already displays for current day, but I often scan prior day or two for email as part of my email catch up. Incidentally - love the ISO format date default YYYY-MM-DD. Great!
              .

              • Inherit labels in outgoing messages.

                There should be an option so that when you reply to a message that has been Labeled then the outgoing reply would inherit the same Label.

                • Ability to enable/disable notifications for different tags/folders!

                  I have been using the rules to filter out my different projects and email distros at work(exchange server), but some of those distros email me very often sometimes a couple of hundred times a day with system status' or debug information and I NEED to be able to turn off notifications on those specific folders.

                  I really like Airmail but my phone is getting nailed with these notifications and not only does it effect performance but its pretty annoying as well!

                  • include folders of all accounts in move to

                    Hello!

                    I use several email accounts for different purposes. Some people tend to send me private mails to my business address. It would be great if it would be possible to directly move these emails to the correct folder in my private account. I know this is possible by selecting Folders > Transfer to Account > private account > devnull, but this is really time consuming compared to pressing 'V' and typing 'dev' ...
                    Maybe this trans account folder search could only be activated if 'All Accounts' is selected in the left pane.

                    • I don't want Airmail to put an [AIRMAIL] label on my mailboxes in Apple Mail.

                      This [AIRMAIL] labeling is intrusive and unnecessary. Why not just leave Apple Mail alone?

                      • Can folders snap back

                        It would be really great if folders opened when toggled and stayed that way until changed BUT NOT when dragging in messages. Dragging should only open the folders for the duration of the drag then revert to the settings that were toggled. I have to constantly collapse folders after dragging in messages (which happens a lot as I am striving for a zero inbox).

                        • Move to Folder via Keyboard

                          I've about 200 Folders. Pressing V and than selecting is much too timeconsuming. By Pressing V I would like to have an inputbox that filters my folders by typing its name. Via Enter the message is moved to this folder.
                          This is pretty much how it is done in Outlook. And I love this especially if you get several 100 emails a day.

                          • show all subfolders inside a folder matching the search criteria in 'move to' dialog

                            Hello!

                            In my setup I use a lot of folders and subfolders like:

                            * computers
                            - software
                            - mathematica
                            - lab
                            ...

                            If I want to move for example a email with some mathematica stuff to the appropriate folder i would press 'V' and type 'comp'. The search will show me only the folder 'computers' and if I don't remember that there are is a special subfolder 'mathematica' I will wrongly move the email to 'computers'.

                            It would be great if you would change the search behavior such that also all subfolders for a matching folder name are shown.

                            • Hierarchical IMAP Folders

                              Currently Airmail seems to flatten then entire IMAP hierarchy (I've just spent (again) about an hour digging around in my Dovecot configuration to try and find the problem, before deciding it seems to be Airmail; Apple Mail handles the folders correctly).

                              As my folder hierarchy contains a bunch of parent folders whose child folders all have the same name, it gets *very* confusing in the Airmail folder view.

                              Handling IMAP folders properly seems like an obvious improvement at this point.

                              • Support hide/reveal multiple folders at once

                                If you have a large number of folders on the IMAP server you often want to see only a subset on the sidebar in Airmail. Having to select and then right click one by one to hide a large number is painful. The ability to select multiple folders (labels) and hide or reveal all of them at once would be very nice. Also if you hide the parent folder then it should hide all the subfolders.

                                  • Supporting Exchange Folders (Bonus: With existing rules?)

                                    I have bought Airmail as an alternative to mail.app.

                                    Sadly enough though, I found out, that I can't use it for my Exchange account. I use many subfolders (some with existing rules) to sort and filter emails. E.g., I have a subfolder for a special customer, automatically sorting all his mails via "sent from domain xyz.de"-rule to that folder.
                                    Other folders are used for my own (non-automated) sorting.
                                    All in all, I'm talking about 15-20 subfolders.

                                    These subfolders are not displayed in the account in Airmail, and I can only map fixed categories to folders.

                                    Basically, this forces me to…

                                    • Text search with Move To

                                      In Gmail I am able to type in the name of a label and it will filter down to one I can select for moving a message into. In Airmail, the fact that I need to use the mouse to find the label I want to move to is slow. I think being able to hit 'v' and then type of name of where I want a message to go would be a great improvement to usability.

                                      • Fix Alphabetical Sorting of Folders...

                                        Guys - please fix folder sort. In short, it just doesn't work. When you create a new folder it puts the new folder at the bottom of the tree - and it seems impossible to move it into the right place. I raised a ticket on this in the previous version; it really needs resolving. If you need more info contact me.

                                        • Move message using V should remember last folder/label

                                          I often move several messages one after the other to the same folder using the "v" key.

                                          In postbox, I only have to hit "v" again followed by Enter, since it remembers the last folder I selected. I've been abusing this for years and is hard for me to escape.

                                          Thus I would really like having "v" (and "l") remember the last selected folder. If the text is to be pre-selected, simply typing would erase it and be 100% equivalent to the current situation.

                                          No need to remember the folder after quitting the app, but at least in the same…
