  1. possibility to deactivate features for a better overview

    If you right click on a mail you have al lot of features.
    If you could hide some of them you don't use (e.g. send to Thing, Services, Flags...) you can have a much more better UI for your own use.

    • Fonts for Reading Messages

      Please provide us with the option to change reading fonts and resize them. The default is very large compared to everything else I use. As a result, reading my email also requires needless scrolling.

      Thanks!

      • Reverse the chronological order of messages in a conversation.

        Reading a conversation in reverse chronological order makes my brain hurt. Every other email client that supports threaded conversations, places the latest email at the bottom of the conversation. Then it automatically scrolls to the bottom of the view when opening the conversation.

        It would make reading conversations with multiple replies a lot easier to follow if they where listed in the order they came in.

        • Localise snooze

          The snooze buttons are not translated in dutch.
          But more importantly the snooze calendar (when you opt for pick a date) is not localized. Sunday is not the start of the week in Europe, it is monday. I always choose the wrong day when I browse in the calendar.

          Btw. The snooze functionality is really great!

            • Improve startup time

              It takes forever for Airmail 3.0.1 to startup on my MacBook Pro running El Capitan. Time is waisted for up to 5 minutes waiting for messages to load.
              I;ve done everything from following the tips here:
              https://medium.com/@Airmail/how-to-speed-up-your-airmail-initialization-f7662cfbeef7#.68h7nhife

              as well as uninstalling & reinstalling Airmail. It's still slow & very frustrating,

              • Ability to change message preview lines from none to 4 (like on iOS)

                The iOS version allows you to change the preview from no lines to 4. I feel one line gives a much cleaner look but this isn't an option in any of the themes.

                  I would really like an option to have a white/light sidebar!

                  • Hide message preview in new email notification

                    It would be great to have the message preview hidden in the notification alert. Not that it shows a large portion of the email, but I do work on my computer around others and just having the subject appear would help with confidentiality a bit better.

                    • Yandex Mail

                      Hey!
                      Your app is great, thanks.
                      My tip is that: Consider adding Yandex.Mail accounts — its crucial thing for many users from Russia and CIS, becuase Yandex here is very popular, and many users here have Yandex.Mail accounts as well as Gmail and others.

                      Thanks!

                      • Open links behind airmail OR in front

                        Prefs allow to select whether links in messages should open a browser directly or behind airmail.
                        My request would be to allow this to be controlled on an individual level as in Apple Mail. Set one option as the general preference, allow the other via right click (or something).
                        It seems like a small thing but it is actually the one thing that is keeping me in Apple Mail!
                        And it seems easy to implement?

                        • allow change account font color

                          This was available in Airmail 2, MacOS (10.10.5), and is an option that doesn't work in Airmail 3. Specifically, under accounts, using the gear icon to change the icon works. There is the option to change the font color - doesn't work in this new version. Saved multiple times to no avail. Problem is the color is too low contrast to easily determine which account I'm in. Please fix.

                            Simple Button within the Preferences Menu to set Airmail as the standard mail program for mac. It is quite annoying to click on an email address (especially within Airmail) and then Apple Mail pops up and wants to send that mail for you...

                            • Previewing a message doesn't mark as read

                              Hi,

                              I would like a 'mark as read' option similar to 'mark on click,' except that it doesn't mark the next message as read when you archive a message.

                              The current set of options don't have a middle ground between 'mark on click' and 'opening the message.'

                              The workflow I imagine is one where when I archive a message I can choose to either click on the next message I want to read (so I'm not forced to read the immediate next message in the list) or I can click on that same message in the list or click inside…

                              • Allow an alias to use the same signature as the account it's under.

                                Allow an alias to use the same signature as the account its under. Currently only the added account uses a custom signature. A created alias should be able to use it as well rather than the default.

                                • Airmail deleting Gmail signature

                                  Ever since downloading the iOS Airmail, the iOS app and Mac app have both constantly been deleting my Gmail signature within minutes of me adding it. This is a business email and I MUST have a signature. I absolutely cannot use Airmail while this keeps happening.

                                  I have submitted multiple support tickets and have so far been ignored. This is unacceptable.

                                  I have tried deleting the account off Airmail entirely and starting over, the problem persists.

                                  I'm going back to Apple Mail. I've been an Airmail user for a long time but you've lost a fan.

                                    • Do NOT mark mail as read, when i hit reply.

                                      Do NOT mark mail as read when i reply. I want to leave it marked unread until it is fully dealt with, which may take more than 1 reply.

                                      I have it set to only mark mail as read Manually, but it still ignores this when i reply. It does as expected and leaves the mail marked as unread when you forward it, but behaves unexpectedly when replying, by marking the mail as read.

                                      i will try using 'To Do' for now, but until the iOs version comes along that leaves me with a separate issue when working between different…

                                      • German Translations: Never delete from server

                                        On a POP3 account you can specify when the message should be deleted from the server. There is a combobox that is named "Field" (this label should be more meaningful) - and the first entry is not translated: "Never delete from server" . which should be: "Nie vom Server löschen" - but in the translation tool you can't find this string, so it could not be translated.
                                        And the button under this combo "POP3 wiederherstellen" is too small, the text is truncated. This is the problem with many items, that the German text is often truncated.
