Airmail Mac 3.x

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:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Support for templates or stationery

    Hi there. I often compose the same type of content (ie. a template) in more than one email. For example, when I am sending invoices to clients, they all have the same body text in the email. Does Airmail support this feature? Kind of like Apple Mail's Stationery?
    Thanks for the great app!

    • Composer overhaul

      I know this is rather a summary of different "ideas" and not all are new but I am afraid that 15+ ideas with 4-5 votes will never get the attention so I figured I'd just summarize them. So maybe it's me but I think proper email formatting is a basic functionality that should be given. The way the composer works today is beta status *at best*:

      * Everytime I add a bullet or numbered list via markdown editor, I get double spacing between the bullets/ list items (when I paste from Byword, it looks fine!)
      * In general, there is…

      • Bullet / number lists and indenting

        When you try to create a bullet list it immediately creates a new line below the text (see "Bullet Point In Line") so you have to copy and paste text to the next line. The line it creates is double-height.

        If you start the list in the line above the text ("Bullet Point Above") it creates a bullet in that line, which is above the text so you have to delete to align.

        Once you have created a bullet list you cannot remove it using the bullet drop-down. You have to use the outdent function or return twice if you…

        • Improved Markdown Support

          Although the current support of the Markdown composer does allow you to compose emails in Markdown (the main reason I bought Airmail in the first place), the composer is limited in many ways:

          1. If you ever switch off the Markdown view, or in any other way navigate away from the Markdown source view, your entire Markdown source is collapsed into the `[original-html]` block. This is extremely dissatisfying. You lose the ability to edit the original Markdown source, which, really, is a huge problem.

          2. In Markdown mode, regardless of whether autocorrect is on or not, you cannot type ellipses…

            • Hide or View Reply to Field

              It'd be nice to be able to hide the reply to field (or not need to tab through it) since I rarely use it. Can that be added to preferences?

              • Clear text formatting (both mac and ios).

                After pasting text into the composer i need to be able to clear it's formatting so it looks and acts the same as the default text. I need it after the fact as it's always an after thought and i've missed the chance to match formatting as you paste. I find myself wanting this whenever i paste into an email, which is 3 times a day.

                  While composing a new mail, the user should be able to add a recipient on cc, using the same shortcut used by Gmail (Command+Shift+C).

                    • Add option to switch from plain text to rich text editor.

                      If you choose the rich text editor as your default editor, you can switch to plain text editor while editing an e-mail. I would like the reverse option as well, i.e. if I choose the plain text editor as default, I would like to be able to switch to the rich text editor once in a while while editing an individual e-mail. Please add this feature.

                      • Automatically use different email signature for replies

                        I can see that this idea has been suggested a couple of times previously but not had the attention it deserves, so this is an attempt to finally get a desperately needed feature added.

                        Coming from MS Outlook, I really miss the ability to have a separate signature for new emails and one for replies and forwarding. I know that Airmail allows multiple signatures to be created, but manually selecting a different one for replies in tedious, time-consuming and simply doesn't make sense when using the Quick Reply feature!

                        • Canned / templated responses

                          If you have to send the same response over and over again then canned responses can save a lot of time. Most of the competitor products have it.

                            • Add option to auto-complete email addresses from history of senders

                              It seems from the documentation that Airmail will happily suggest address I've emailed in the past from Airmail. However it won't look through my IMAP history and suggest people who've emailed me, or even through my sent messages folder to suggest addresses I've emailed in the past using a different Mail client. We haven't all been using Airmail forever! (I know that I should probably put some of these into my address book, but this probably won't happen for everyone). It turns out that I rely on this feature in Mail.app quite a a bit.

                                Give a choice of automatically not including a signature for forwarded emails as well as replies.

                                The lack of choice here is surprising. Its also common practice to include a signature (with a corporate logo) on new emails. To include such a signature in a forwarded email looks tacky

                                  If i have 2 accounts set up, when composing an email from account A, I the to: field should not autocomplete with suggestions from Account B. At the very least, I should be able to disable this functionality. The practical application of this is if account A is a work account and account B is a personal account, when I start composing an email for work, I shouldn't get contact suggestions of my personal contacts.

                                    Create and save pre-defined text sources (templates), that are used very often and can be pasted in any e-mail by choosing from a menu or some kind of shortcut. This would be a very powerful function for business man, who have to write the same text passages over and over again.

                                    • Different signatures for different recipients

                                      This solution I had in "The Bat" for Windows.

                                      When you type a recipient in TO: field, the signature changes based upon recipient email.

                                      You can define different signatures and connect them with different recipients and they are applied automatically.

                                      So you can define different signature for your friends, different for business partners and different for your mom :)

                                      And then you don't need to switch them manually so it saves time.

                                      The Bat had it like 10 years ago :)

                                      • Default Account for Reply when multiple accounts feed into the same inbox

                                        Airmail 3.0.1 provides the option to use the selected account as the default reply account. Unfortunately, this option does not work adequately with forwarded email.

                                        For example: I have multiple email accounts (hypothetically, bob@gmail.com and steve@gmail.com) that are forwarded to one address (again hypothetically, everything@gmail.com); i.e., all of my emails to the various accounts are redirected to everything@gmail.com's inbox. Now, if I want to reply to an email that was sent to bob@gmail.com, I want to use bob@gmail.com as the default sender; unfortunately, because the email is sitting in everything@gmail.com's inbox, Airmail selects everything@gmail.com as…

                                        • VIM shortcut integration to triple speed of email editing

                                          I have been searching for a long time for an email client with support for VIM (see http://www.vim.org/). This is a commonly used editing tool on Linux machines - installed on every Linux machine, always available for usage. It significantly speeds up text editing for someone familiar with VIM shortcuts.

                                          For software developers, they are frequently switching between applications like their software development tools and email applications. Would LOVE it for Airmail to pick up VIM support, and there are many tools / code already written to help make that a possibility.

                                          Email composition and editing would become SO…
