  1. Integrate on&offline accounts into one -> see and search imap+mbox at the same time

    With limited (online) storage for emails, one is forced to store older emails locally. Outlook does a great job on this: auto-archive older emails to the exact same folderstructure as the one being used. Apple mail sucks at doing this, needing to create manual local folder, and setting up rules.
    Airmail - almost there. Just make it possible to integrate a sort of 'on my mac' kind of setup within a imap-view

  2. 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…

  3. 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!

  4. Move lists of recently used folders & Quickfolder

    Thanks for your excellent product, which I am using on MacBook Pro, iPhone and iPad. Version 3 is excellent software. Could I make a couple of suggestions for future versions:

    1. For someone like myself who frequently dictates from an email and then puts the original in a different folder, the folder “move to” system is weak. At the top there are dedicated folders (“InBox”, “Start”, “Drafts” etc.) but there does not seem any way of actually adding to those. So each time you have to, in my case, scroll down a long list of folders to find the one…

  5. 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.

  6. 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…

  7. 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…

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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?

  12. Realtime display update

    For example, I choose the indication mode of "all emails" and choose "extraction by an unread message" more.
    At this time, the list isn't updated even if I receive a new email. With a choice of different indication, it is displayed if I choose the unread extraction button again.

    About the update in the state that the filtering of the email is set. The number of badges displayed beside a folder does not change.

    I want you to update this in real time.

  13. 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.

  14. Please bring back the [Airmail] folders/labels since I use gmail shortcuts to add them

    I read my mail in both airmail and gmail, and I use the ToDo/Memo/Done labels extensively, but since 3.x they are being filtered out from the labels I can choose when assigning a label.

    Please bring them back so I don't have to use a special shortcut in Airmail, that won't work in gmail.

  15. Move Location of Mail Folder - Particularly archives - to Different Disk or Different Enclosing folders

    Move Location of Mail Folder - Particularly archives - to Different Disk or Different Enclosing folders. Over many years, the mailbox gets huge, and can start to choke boot drive.

  17. Clone messages when offline

    Hi,

    I have an imap account of which the server is no longer active. I would like to move the messages to another account and try using the 'Folder -> transfer to / clone to account' option. It doesn't do anything !!
    The account is circled in red because of the lacking server-connection, and I guess this is causing it not to work.
    A functionality to export or move whenever without server connection is an essential backup feature to me!! Thanks for your help!

  18. Folders, not directories

    When I download a file, there's a button that says "Choose Director". It's a VERY little thing, but OX 10 vernacular is folders. Directories is a Windows, UNIX (etc) term. It should say "Choose Folder".

  19. Typeahead to move message to folder

    One of the features that i love and use heavily on PostBox is hitting the "s" key and then start typing the folder name and then selecting and hitting enter to move the message to that folder. It is a very quick and convenient way of doing it instead of hitting "V" and choosing from a list of folders which in my case are hundreds. I am sure this is not a problem for people with small number of folder but is a nuisance for large number of folders.

  20. Assign new outgoing messages to labels and folders

    When creating a new message (that is, not replying/forwarding an existing message), it would be really helpful to be able to have that new message automatically moved to a particular folder or assigned a particular label once it is sent.
