  1. Forward as attachment

    We REALLY need forward email as attachment. This is a sorely missing feature that every other email client seems to have including PostBox.

    • Improving handling of images in message body.

      Airmail is now very poor at handling images in the email body.
      After dropping an image into the message, you can't select the image and therefore can't drag and move the image around.
      The Markup option is glitchy and can cause issues. For example after center aligning an image, when hovering over it the markup option will show the same image overlaid and left aligned. I've also experienced images covering text, making it inaccessible.
      Image resize options are also a must.

      When receiving emails with inline images (from Apple Mail app for instance), they are displayed as a list of…

      • Quoted text dosen't show original color formatting

        The quoted text in messages received show up only in blue color, with the standard quoted text line on the left. This blue color format is overwriting the color styles applied to those original emails.

        Our studio uses forwarded emails to keep track of client submitted changes, for example we apply the green color to parts of the email that has been completed, and apply red to parts of the email that need further action.

        On Gmail, these colors show up just fine, but on Airmail, the quoted text is always blue.

        I wish there was a way to leave…

        • Add an integrated calendar to Airmail. Not just Sync with iCal or other calander apps

          It would be great if you could add an integrated calendar to the app.

          I use google calendar so at the moment I have to have iCal open synced with gmail as well as Airmail. I would prefer just an airmail calendar that could be linked with my gmail calendar.

            • HubSpot Signals support for Airmail

              Support for HubSpot is the <one> thing that's keeping my sales team from moving to airmail from gmail and mail.app. Adding support for this integration would make Airmail a slam-dunk.

              Signals allows our sales-team to essentially track whether or not a message is read using a tracker image embedded in the message. Yes, this doesn't work for those of us that turn off image loading, but it can be very useful from a sales perspective.

              Thanks

              • View threaded message list (Thunderbird-like)

                Like in Thunderbird, I'd like to see in the message list the emails grouped by thread. It's not an original idea but this is the only thing I miss from Thunderbird.

                  • Allow Things quick entry with autofill

                    Airmail could allow to use the Things keyboard shortcut to create entry based on emails rather than the different (non-configurable) shortcut that Airmail offers (and that is not quick entry based). As described on this page http://support.culturedcode.com/customer/portal/articles/174723#capturing-links-and-text-with-autofill

                    The app needs to have an AppleScript interface so that Autofill can access a selection within it. Specifically, the developer needs to support linking to objects in the app via URLs: for example, Mail uses message:// and Safari uses http:// or https://. For text selections, the app only needs to use standard text fields.

                            • Conversation View For Inbox Only

                              Currently it appears that Airmail includes ALL messages in any folder in a conversation. For someone who receive daily updates or emails with the same subject each day this can really add up. For example, I receive an email from each of my servers each day, and the subject is the same so even though I've archived each one, each day, it still shows the thread of 1500 emails in my Inbox.

                              I think it would be great to have an option to show a thread/conversation of messages in the Inbox only and not include those in other folders, it…

                              • Enable the use of a Proxy

                                It would be great to be able to set a (SOCKS) proxy setting within the application* for talking to Gmail/IMAP servers as my work firewall blocks talking to Gmail's IMAP servers from within their network, this would mean I can use Airmail at work (that would be great). ^_^

                                * I can't set a global proxy within the OS X settings as this would mean all of my network traffic going via that proxy and none of my work systems functioning.

                                • Support IMAP keywords (similar to Thunderbird tags)

                                  Currently labels and folders are used in the same way, because Gmail uses them that way. IMAP does support keywords for messages which Thunderbird uses to tag messages with named tags. It would be great if Airmail would support this instead of folders as labels for IMAP accounts. Currently I cannot use the Todo/Memo/Done functions because they would move messages to a different folder, I would like to use this feature while using folders at the same time.

                                      Server site spam filtering is just a start. We also need some local control. I've depended on SpamSieve for years and that would be my first choice but native support like Appe's Mail spam filtering might suffice.

                                        I use Airmail in fullscreen mode on my Mac constantly. And as such its not very easy for me to drag/drop files into it from finder. I would LOVE to be able to just copy/paste E.g. command+c and command+v files straight into a message like I can in Mail.App. This would be a massive improvement for an already great app in my opinion.

                                        • Airmail 3.0 - Left side bar - more sizing options.

                                          In Airmail 3.0 The side bar menu on the left side seems to have been expanded and takes up too much room.

                                          - The accounts bar on the far left - add an option for us to make this about 1/2 as thick as it is now - or get rid it all together if we choose.
                                          - The Mailbox listing column - can no longer drag it smaller than the length of the folder names - please let us set the width we want.

                                          Thanks!
