  1. 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…

      • 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.

        • 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.

            • Attach files to existing threads feature.

              If you have one email thread going and you want to attach a file to it there is no possible way to do that in apple mail for ios. Doesnt exist in many apps like Gmail and Mailbox. Acompli manages this well.

                • "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.

                    • Please provide a manual for 2.0.

                      Right now your "Manual" under the Help menu you are redirected to a webpage that is decidedly NOT a manual. Or provide good message boards or more complete instructions or something. I would love to move off the Mac Mail app, and I am told by many that Airmail is the way to go, but right now it is difficult to figure out how to make Airmail work the way I need it to.

                          With all of the options of Airmail I would think this would have been implemented by now ... Grouping all emails sent/received by contacts similar to how the iMessages application...

                                    When I delete a conversation from Inbox it also deletes all Sent items for the conversation. It eliminates all history. When a conversation is finished, I like to delete from my Inbox but the Sent Items should remain. This is how Mac Mail does it. It only deletes items from the Inbox but leaves the Sent Items alone. Or at least making this a configuration option would be nice.

                                      if i type "john server restart" search should bring up all emails that have those words in it, instead, it is looking for the exact phrase. this is sooo much less useful than Yosemite's built-in Mail.app right now. Please, focus on search for the next update. please. its really making me switch back to Mail.app

                                        One of the few things I like about Outlook Mac is in the inbox there is a separator line to organize each day. So you have your messages from today with a separator bar underneath "Today", same for "yesterday", then "Tues", etc.

                                        • Provide ability to edit subject for received email

                                          i would like to be able to change the subject for emails before (or after) archiving them. Some automated eReceipt type emails have generic details and I like to edit the subject to include meaningful data.
