  1. it would be great to have a one button conversations ON/Off to improve

    Like apple Mail and other applications to have a one button "Conversations On/Off" as currently one has to go through the preference panel to achieve this. Sometimes it is easier to search for an email outside a conversation, and sometimes it is not.

    • Up-to-date Views For Folders

      The counter does refresh for folders, but the folder view doesn't. Currently, you have to select another folder and then come back to it in order to see up-to-date content in the folder. This is a basic functionality that is sorely missed. Preferences/Accounts allows you to set Inbox refresh but not folders refresh time. It appears that it was an option at some point but removed? (see screenshot). I moved from Mac Mail to Airmail due to instability issues, but this is making me want to go back to Mail or find another option altogether.

      • BUG: Folders are left randomly

        I have rules moving emails in various folders on my email account. When searching one of these folders, Airmail snaps back to my inbox folder after some time. This can happen immediately or after a few moments. With this bug, it is impossible to read longer mails in a folder or even scroll through mails in a folder since you will be randomly snapped back into the main inbox. I made a short screencast to demonstrate the issue: http://sharedby.ralphcibis.de/QAtG4/5oAtYBX9

        Same happens on my colleagues Mac. Both running on Sierra.

        • Add an extra type of local container folder that will list all messages contained in nested folders

          The current folder hierarchy in Airmail allows for a parent folder to contain messages of its own (or be empty of messages) and have sub folders nested under itself which themselves contain messages.

          The parrent folder does not list the messages of the subfolders. And this is good and useful and should remain as is.

          But. it would also be useful to have a type of parent folder that cannot hold messages itself, but instead lists the all the messages contained in the subfolders nested under it.

          For lack of imagination on my part, lets call this new type of…

          • move to folder of other account

            When I want to move a message from the inbox to an existing folder I trigger this with the 'v' keyboard shortcut and start typing the name of the folder it only shows the folders of that account that received the mail. The work around is to first for that specific folder and then to drag the message with the mouse to that folder which is cumbersome. Please show all folders that match.

            • Batch selection of folders in sidebar for moving & colouring

              You need to allow for batch selection of folders in the sidebar. No modifier key allows me to do this. You are forcing the user to have to move folders around 1 at a time if they require to do this. It also affects the colouring of folders. I have to manually select each folder & change the colour one at a time. This is incredibly time consuming & inefficient for users who colour code their side bar in detail with many colours.

              • Fuzzy match the folder name

                I would like to see fuzzy matching. So if for example there are three existing folders name 'John Read', 'Carl Read' and 'John Apple' I would like to see that the search term 'jr' only shows 'John Read' and nothing else. At the moment I have to type 'John R' to have a match.

                  • Move entire thread (even from 'sent mail') to trash

                    Suppose that a label “some_label” is attached to a message in Inbox. If a message is deleted, then it kept in “some_label” folder. I expect it not be there, but in Bin folder.

                    It is also applied to “Sent Folder”: deleted messages are also stayed in that folder.

                    • 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…

                        (a) create a local account
                        (b) copy the files (accessed from Window->Show AirMail Data) from the POP account to the local account

                          • 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.

                                • 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.

                                    • 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.

                                      • Improve movement to folder/label between iOS and OSX

                                        I use airmail on both iOS and OSX, and moving mail to a folder simply doesn't work on iOS. I attempt to move the email, but on the next sync interval, the emails I moved come back. I'm not sure where the bug is, but until this is fixed, I can't use Airmail for iOS and have switched to a new email application

                                        • 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!
