How can we improve Airmail?

off line mode

I want to be able to go into an 'offline mode' to work on airplanes, without internet, or without distractions, without Airmails constant error messages

        C'mon guys. This has to be standard.

        I've really enjoyed the Airmail app so far, but today was the first time I opened up the application without internet access (on an airplane) and was shocked to see a completely blank view. Please tell me that this feature is on the roadmap - I don't want to go back to Mail.app!

        I really can't understand why Airmail does not support offline mode? Nowadays, this is a default feature for any serious mail client app. Come on!

        For me top priority to have this feature in Airmail.

        This is really a huge problem with Airmail. I had just fallen in love with the app (after it took FOREVER to index my mail so I thought it was insanely slow but now it is lightening fast). But I can't use the app if I can't use it while traveling. My work moving stuff to folders is all lost, and I have to jump through hoops to send the mail that I have drafted.

        Offline is a really important feature for both travel and clearing email backlog when offline

        I just bought this software under the assumption that it could be used offline. If I can't use it offline then it has no value to me - I would just use the Gmail web interface.

        I've gone back to Outlook as Airmail is so painful in a mixed connectivity setting :-(

        I was working on a train with partial coverage and replying to emails. The experience in Airmail 3 with local drafts, hanging while sending and not being able to see what was going on (and then my emails seemed to disappear only to re-appear in my server drafts folder when I got back into coverage) was entirely disconcerting.

        This is a bit of a deal breaker for me - I work often on trains and tether to my iPhone but that means that connections to the server break and I really need visibility on what is waiting to send, what has sent, and be able to stop and restart the process (I know when it is going to fail because the phone has gone out of signal and is now back, but as far as the macbook is concerned it has had full wifi connection all the time)

        +1 I also travel a lot on trains and planes and I'd love to get to Inbox Zero on these trips while also having all messages available for search and reference. I don't mind the extra space it would take on my laptop.

        Definitely need this feature. I'm a life coach and when I'm working with clients or working on material for them I need to have access to their client info and messages but the distraction of incoming email is too much. For now I have my folders all set to refresh every hour but it would be much easier to just have an online/offline button like in the Mail app.

      • Locknagger commented  · 

        +1. I work with my emails in batches and at the moment I can't stop Airmail from getting new emails (despite setting to manual). A single offline button would be amazingly useful.

      • Sreekandh Balakrishnan commented  · 

        I would this feature as well. I was travelling in train for 4 hours and i was planning to reply back all the messages i had in my inbox. I was not aware the Airmail doesn't have Outbox / Offline mode.

        Highly need this to continue using Airmail 2.
