  1. Email Subject Line=Things Task Subject

    I have to believe this is on the forum somewhere but couldn't find it. Sorry if that is an amateur mistake. I love the Things integration but find it annoying that the resulting task shows the Email Subject as first line of the Task Notes. I would love for the Email Saubject to instead populate the Name of the Task (rather than it being blank). Or at least an option to make the Email Subject the Task Name by default. With of course the ability to over write it with another Task Name if needed.

    • Reply to does not always include the entire previous message

      Reply to does not always include the entire previous message. Some emails I have to reply to from Gmail because either a) the reply email has no content at all (just the sender and a blue 'bar' that marks the beginning of the email I am replying to) or b) the last message is not included in the reply, so it looks like I am replying to myself.

      I can't see a consistent pattern as to what causes this. If I see anything I will let you know.

      • 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.

        • UI Refresh

          Great we have a mac app. However, I find the overall look and feel a bit dated.

          Fonts and colour scheme do not make it compelling to use. Functionality great

          • process big attachments on a background thread

            1. when i click on an email with a big excel attachment (7MB, 23000 rows) Airmail shows a beachball cursor and becomes unresponsive for ca 30-40 seconds. after the mail is opened the attachment displayed as an icon.

            2. when i doubleclick the same email, a small preview window is opened and airmail freezes

            idea: don't process big attachments on the main thread

            • Manual Configuration of Office365 Account Fails Because of Autodiscover

              When adding an Exchange account, originally Autodiscover fails after a few minutes because it tried to find an Exchange server at the TLD. However, that domain name's e-mail is hosted by Office365. After failing the first time, Airmail then asks for a server, which is outlook.office365.com. Clicking "Add," again, I get the same error: "Autodiscover Failed."

              Attached is a screenshot of the error. The e-mail address is not @hotmail.com, @outlook.com, or any of the free Microsoft e-mail offerings.

              • Add a reminder to an already sent mail

                The reminders feature is an integral part of my workflow to track follow-ups, a great feature.

                What is missing is the ability to add a reminder to an already sent mail as well as the ability to modify or delete an existing reminder, shouldn't be a biggie I suppose and is integral to the usability of this feature.

                • autocrypt support

                  Would be nice if Airmail on Mac Os and iOS would Support Autocrypt for PGP.

                      Ability to 'send later' longer than the current 30 day limit. Say 1 year or 6 months.

                      • Connection stability improvements

                        Airmail does not handle slow connections very well at all, in fact, I'm slowly going back to using Gmail as Airmail constantly loses connection and won't sync messages.

                        I understand those slow connections are a pain for everyone but as I travel a lot I often get stuck accessing my mail from Airmail but can easily load my mail in the browser on the same connection.

                        • Don't animate for archiving if I'm pressing the archive button

                          I don't want to wait until your animation finishes before I can archive another email.
                          Also the animation makes no sense if you're not swiping.

                              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?

                                  Let's say I have a conversation thread in my inbox with 5 messages: 2 have been previously read and 3 are new. I'm using Gmail keyboard shortcuts, and I select the thread. This is what should happen:

                                  - The 2 previously read messages appear collapsed.
                                  - All of the unread messages are expanded.
                                  - The oldest unread message is selected and scrolled fully into view.
                                  - Hitting "n" goes to the next oldest unread message. It is scrolled fully into view. Currently only a tiny amount is scrolled into view (e.g. enough to read the recipient list and nothing else),…

                                    • 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.

                                      • Ability to enable/disable rules by day of the week or add a condition for day of the week

                                        as a freelance worker dividing my week between multiple companies, it would be incredible to set a snooze automatically for specific emails on a specific day of the week to a different day.

                                        Seems like the rules feature for the job only it is missing some small functionality for that - the ability to create a rule that on specific days snoozes emails from certain senders to other days.

                                        This could be done by either adding a condition that triggers on specific days of the week, or giving the ability to enable disable rules by the day of the week.

                                        • Different signatures for different recipients

                                          This solution I had in "The Bat" for Windows.

                                          When you type a recipient in TO: field, the signature changes based upon recipient email.

                                          You can define different signatures and connect them with different recipients and they are applied automatically.

                                          So you can define different signature for your friends, different for business partners and different for your mom :)

                                          And then you don't need to switch them manually so it saves time.

                                          The Bat had it like 10 years ago :)
