  1. 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.

  2. Focus Mode for composing emails

    Apps like iA writer and Markdown have a Focus Mode that only highlight the sentence you're currently typing and fade out the rest. That would be an awesome feature for composing emails:

  3. Add ability to create tables. A very useful and frequently used feature in MS-Outlook.

    Click an icon or right click > Insert Table -- Display a grid
    User drags mouse across the grid to pick no of rows and columns
    Table is created. See attached screenshot.
    Allow adding, deleting and resizing rows and columns of the table.

  4. Don't indent quoted messages

    Many other mail programs have a selectable feature to disable indenting of quoted messages in replies and forwards. If a mail thread is very long, the indentation can get unwieldy. Even with shorter mail threads, I find these indentations to be generally distracting.

    Apple mail is one program that allows the indentation to be disabled by unchecking "increase quote level". Same for Windows Live Mail.

  5. 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.

  6. Add copy/paste functionality for attachments.

    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.

  7. 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!

  8. Notifications whitelist

    I only want e-mail notifications from a few important senders, not all of them. I should be able to specify the e-mail addresses I want to be notified of.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

    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!

  12. 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 (:

  13. Show and sort by message size in inbox

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

  14. 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.

  15. 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

  16. 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.

  17. 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…

  18. 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.

  20. 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.
