  1. Maintain message selection after sort

    When re-sorting the inbox by subject, sender or other criteria, the current behaviour is to take you immediately to the top of the newly sorted list instead of preserving your placement on the message you had currently selected. This isn't ideal as the goal of re-sorting is usually to see the current message in a new context e.g. - show me all other messages that have the same subject line.

    • calendar.vcs

      Please add support for calendar.vcs attachments!!
      Currently Airmail does not show any information related to the calendar.vcs invitations - all you get is an attachment, and if you double click on it it will open in iCal - BUT iCal will not actually go to the day of the meeting! So when opening a calendar.vcs I have NO IDEA what the details of the invitation are.
      Please include the details of the invitation in text within the email. Gmail does this and its brilliant.

      • highlighting entire email - no scrolling issue

        When I try to highlight an email that is longer than the window - I cannot scroll, I have to Select All in order to get everything. Please fix. Thanks!

        • 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.

          • Customizable CSS for markdown emails

            I see that [an idea was posted for Airmail 1.x][1] to make the CSS for markdown-formatted emails customizable.

            I'd like to see this feature added to Airmail 2.

            As a workaround, I edited `/Applications/Airmail 2.app/Contents/Resources/styleEditorMd.css`, but it would be nice if there were a GUI in Airmail's preferences dialog.

            Bonus points for being able to create different Markdown stylesheets and pick which one I want to use when I'm composing the email (:

              It would be nice to see the size of a message and be able to sort messages from largest to smallest.

              • Make the font bigger for composing an email and also the font size for the folders and incoming messages. The font is too small for old eyes

                Have the capability in preferences to change the font size for composing email, folders, incoming messages etc.

                • 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…

                    I use Google Calendar as it can collect different calendars into one calendar. I have weather, appointments, Holidays and Birthdays. I had it with Thunderbird as a tab, maybe just as a item on the side that can be clicked and opened as a full page

                    • Highlight messages with label color

                      This used to be the default behavior, but changed in the latest update to Airmail 2.0 - label colors now only highlight the top right corner of the message which for me makes them much harder to see.

                      I used this feature extensively to visually distinguish messages - I would love if this came back.

                      • Better move messages functionality

                        Hi, I'm considering switching to AirMail from MailApp. The most essential functionality I have in Mail.App comes from a plugin called MsfFiler. It's similar to your "v" function that allows me to quickly move messages to folders on the fly...but it does the following things which I don't think Airmail's "v" does, including :

                        1) Ability to type any part of a folder's name to call up that folder. (Say I've got a folder called "Taxes 2015" - I can type "2015" and every folder with 2015 in the title will come up. It doesn't have to be text at…

                        • Add a note to an email or email thread

                          It would be nice to be able to add a note to an email or to an email thread. I only leave emails in my inbox that require a specific action. Generally this would be something like "ask doug about the things and reply with the information" or "look up those settings on the server and send them to IT", or something like that. An action that isn't really described by a simple label or folder. The problem is that I end up reading the same email dozens of times, each time saying "oh, yes, I remember now, I need…

                          • Clicking anywhere in message should allow delete

                            To delete a message, I have to click in the sidebar of a message or on the message in the Inbox pane. I should be able to click anywhere in a message (other than on a link, of course) to "select" the message for an action, like Delete. The experience is very inconsistent.

                              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.

                                      • "Add to Contacts" should work in the native OSX way

                                        At the moment, adding a person to your contacts from an email just creates a new record in the OSX address book. This isn't expected behaviour for OSX apps. Instead, the option of "Create New" or "Add to Existing" should be offered, like in all Apple's apps.

                                        • Define others labels than todo, memo, done...

                                          Capability to create some labels ourselves and associate a color too.
