How can we improve Airmail?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  1. Spam filtering

    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.

    • Native integration with contacts in OS X

      I think the app isn't fully integrated with Contacts app in OS X.
      While composing a mail address it returns a lot of results (addresses in Contacts, previous contacts, ecc...).
      Moreover in Airmail there's a Sync button to click for force a sync with Contacts.
      Hope there will be a better integration with the app in next release.

      • 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!

        • Tagging

          There is an app called MailTags for Apple Mail. It allows you to enter a keyword for every mail you receive. That keyword then appears in the sidebar and lets you easily sort your emails by different keywords as well as use those keywords for search.

          Would be great if you could integrate this kind of tagging into Airmail

          • Forgotten Attachment Option

            It would be great to have a User selectable option that if I say "attach, attachment, attached, included, etc." in my email that the program will give me a warning if I hit send and there is no attachment.

            There are plugins for Outlook and Gmail that do this, and it's a GREAT feature to have. Pain when you forget to attach something.

                • Allow font/size editing in mail viewer window, not just composer

                  I work on two screens, with one of the screens being significantly smaller than the other -- I use the smaller screen for my email client. I love most everything about Airmail, but the default viewer font is too small and difficult to read.

                  Please allow users to change the default font and font size within the viewer window.

                  • Use space bar as "scroll down" and not "open mail in new window", as in Apple Mail and all browsers

                    In Apple Mail pressing space works as "scroll down" in the message window. In airmail, pressing space opens the mail in a new window.
                    So either adding a new "scroll down" key or perhaps change the space keypress to "scroll down"?

                    This is the same functionality as all browsers and Apple Mail.

                        • "Outbox" or outgoing mailbox before a message is sent

                          I've had problems a couple of times where an email doesn't successfully get sent. Airmail gives me an error message (in this case, "Cannot send mail error [message subject] Unable to authenticate with the current session's credentials."

                          Now I can't find the message anywhere, so that I can choose to either copy it into a client that's running correctly (i.e. go into gmail on Safari) OR at least tell Airmail to cancel this message.

                          A bit concerned that I'm going to write the email in Safari, send it normally, and then whenever my problem is fixed in Airmail, it will…

                          • Better address autocomplete per account

                            It would be great to be able to have autocomplete properly add *all* addresses that have been sent to/received from, as Mac Mail does.

                            • 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.

                                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.

                                  • 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 (:

                                        • How about a tab for Google Calendar

                                          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
