How can we improve Airmail?

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 the quoted text in its original colors, and to not have it always change it to blue. Alternatively, it would be nice if Airmail only made blue the text that’s black and left other colors alone.

    Basically something like "Format Painter" would be very valuable to make quick edits to text formatting

    I consider this a bug. I have several colleagues that will reply and insert comments in the original (quoted) email in red. This does not show up in Airmail 3 as red (or any other special formatting), which is not correct behavior.

    CORRECTION: Quoted text *is* blue, but only if received in Airmail. If the same email is received in Apple Mail, quoted text is the same color as all other text.

    For us, quoted text is the same color (black or dark gray) as the email body text, but it's indented. We wish it WAS blue! But don't see any Preference setting for the color of quoted text. Can anyone help? Thanks

    i would also like to voice my support for this idea. the blue text has actually made many emails unreadable for me unless i highlight the text.
