  1. Compatibility with ProtonmailBridge

    ProtonMail Bridge (https://protonmail.com/bridge) claims to use the standards for IMAP & SMTP, yet it is incompatible with Airmail. Airmail will just freeze and restart when Bridge is used. Could the be investigate and fixed?

    • Include attachment content in search results

      Include text-based documents (doc, txt, pdf, etc) in the search index. So when a search query appears inside an attached document, it shows up in the search results, this could be made optional via a checkbox.

      Ideally the search results would show the context of the searched query inside each matched result and when clicked, it would show the document where the matched search query is highlighted.

      Gmail already has this functionality but due to privacy concerns I'd rather use my own IMAP and mail client.

      • Badge count not working on iOS

        After installing Airmail for iOS, the badge count is not working on both iPhone and iPad. It's working fine on Mac. What am I missing? I have notifications enabled, with all the boxes checked. I found old threads which suggested enabling something about "badges for messages on the server", but I have no such option anywhere in Settings. Any ideas? Thanks.

        • attachments

          I have a very hard time finding attachments. They are placed randomly in my emails. For example, a recent reply from a third person says "please find these attachments". They are placed randomly "near" the bottom in a completely random place. In apple mail i can click the paperclip icon to see and download the attachments. In Airmail I have to *hunt* through the email to find where they randomly are. I have to open apple mail to download attachments instead of this frustrating attachment hunt. What is going on?

          • Follow-up reminders - so much room for improvement!

            Love that we can set follow-up reminders to outgoing email in the event of a non-reply. However, the execution of the idea, in my opinion, leaves something to be desired:

            1 - please arrange for the reminders to be moved automatically when the email is answered. Needing to do this manually, remembering which emails have been answered, is unnecessarily time- and energy-consuming.

            2 - please use clearer flags for emails that have gone unanswered. I know we receive a notification each time the deadline passes, but this hovers in the top right corner of the screen for a few seconds…

            • Search engine that works

              This is the worst search engine I've ever used. I have to search through all my emails to find the one I'm looking for. I don't like Apple mail so I'm going to have to find another that works. How can they possibly release and an email program with a horrible search engine?

              • Font size control

                I can find no way to permanently set larger display fonts. On my 27" retina display, the fonts are painfully small. I'm considering giving up on the app entirely because of this basic, simple problem. Please, give us a way to set ALL font sizes in the app (display, in-message, everything).

                • distribution list

                  Allow users to create a distribution list within airmail and nickname it something so we can email groups of people WITHOUT having to add the to our personal apple contacts app. I am an educator, for example, so it would be great to create a distribution list of the classes I teach, but I don't want to have to add my students names and contact info to my apple contacts.

                  • Read Receipts / Tracking Notification Every time email is opened

                    I like how the 'Read Receipt' works, however, I do not like how it only shows a receipt the first time the recipients opens the email. Rather, I believe that the user should receive a notification every time the user opens the email. As an everyday user or even a sales professional, it would showcase that the email is being read, but no response has been given. It might spark to send a quick follow up sparking a response.

                    • Smart Notifications (ike Spark)

                      Enable smart notifications like they have them on mobile. As I understand it, smart notifications mean that only emails addressed to me send a notification (so to avoid newsletter notifications etc). Spark has done this very well, it was one of my favorite features of theirs as it only disrupts my workflow when it really needs to (for what it understands to be important emails). In addition, Spark lets users select for each individual sender to be added to the smart list or not, which is useful, as not every email/sender sent to me means it's important (this is kind…

                        • Deleting previous recipients

                          There should be a way to delete previous recipients, that aren't stored in your address / contacts list. As in: if I replied to a seller on Craigslist, the email address used shouldn't be stored indefinitely in the app, it makes auto-completing other email addresses a nightmare.

                          Apple Mail fixes this by: Window - Previous Recipients - and now I'm able to mass-delete.

                          Thank you :)

                          • Bullet / number lists and indenting

                            When you try to create a bullet list it immediately creates a new line below the text (see "Bullet Point In Line") so you have to copy and paste text to the next line. The line it creates is double-height.

                            If you start the list in the line above the text ("Bullet Point Above") it creates a bullet in that line, which is above the text so you have to delete to align.

                            Once you have created a bullet list you cannot remove it using the bullet drop-down. You have to use the outdent function or return twice if you…

                                  • 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.

                                    • Please Allow Customization of the Condensed Sidebar

                                      I'd like customization options for the sidebar in condensed view. Currently, in normal view, you can customize your favorites, or the folders that appear in the sidebar. In condensed view, though, only the default favorites show. I'd like to be able to see my chosen favorites only in the condensed sidebar, rather than the favorites chosen by default.
