  1. UI Refresh

    Great we have a mac app. However, I find the overall look and feel a bit dated.

    Fonts and colour scheme do not make it compelling to use. Functionality great

    • Improve behavior of navigating conversations with the keyboard

      Let's say I have a conversation thread in my inbox with 5 messages: 2 have been previously read and 3 are new. I'm using Gmail keyboard shortcuts, and I select the thread. This is what should happen:

      - The 2 previously read messages appear collapsed.
      - All of the unread messages are expanded.
      - The oldest unread message is selected and scrolled fully into view.
      - Hitting "n" goes to the next oldest unread message. It is scrolled fully into view. Currently only a tiny amount is scrolled into view (e.g. enough to read the recipient list and nothing else),…

      • Show commands shortcut

        I think it'd be terribly useful to have a 'show commands' shortcut opening a typeahead modal window where you can search through all available commands.

        The thing is, there are so many useful features in Airmail that you need to make it easier for people to get to them!

        • Editing emails and applying font colors do not display as the right color in preview pane

          Please fix the preview pane so that when I send an email with fonts in different colors, the preview pane displays the font colors properly. Instead, the preview pane displays it as black.

          • When minimising the sidebar the icons should match what favourites are set on the selected account

            Currently when you minimise the sidebar the icons that show up do not match the favourites that you set for the account.

            • undo delete

              when deleting a messaged (for me, it's the left arrow), then command+z doesn't bring that message back. instead, it brings back another messaged, often times somewhere else in the list, but I don't know which one - just see my message ticker tick up. #frustrated.

              • Bug: High Sierra Full Screen

                After upgrading to High Sierra (10.13), Airmail v3.5 seems to display issues when in full screen mode.

                When composing an email, the To/CC fields would usually autocomplete/suggest contacts as you start typing their name/address. However, in High Sierra full screen mode, this functionality is not present. If you go to windowed mode, it behaves as expected.

                Also, spelling autocorrect also seems to have display issues in full screen mode.

                • Interface and icon usage

                  When I disable "show message detail" and only look at my list of emails, there is no easy way to delete an email other than swiping left or right. It would be nice to have hover icons (that appear when you hover) to the right of the "unread" and "star" indicators.

                  In this same view, if I double click an email to open it, the message will appear in a new window (as expected). However, this window does not contain any customizable icons. One major issue is that there is no "trash" icon. So it's hard to double-click an email…

                  • Bug: Some emails do not load / are blank.

                    Specifically, I can never view Warby Parker emails on iOS & macOS, but can when switching to another email client. Potentially a larger issue with other emails.

                    • Better clarity for email conversations

                      With lengthy conversations, it becomes very hard to see the break between the end of one message and the start of another. I feel that the UI would benefit from including a pale shade of grey around each to clearly separate them. Quick visual attached.

                      • EU week (Monday) and clock (24h) standards

                        First day of the week, no matter which local language I pick is Sunday (?!?!). I (many of us) need Monday.

                        With AM / PM so easy to get confused and FAIL, that's bad... please enable 24 hour clock.

                        The translation for (no Croatian so I choose Serbian instead) is mixed up with Spanish (?!?), what a mess.

                        • Graphical feedback when moving mails to other account

                          When moving mails to other accounts it would be nice if there was just a small graphical feedback (e.g. in the status bar) that the process is running/in progress or if it did not work. Often I have mails in my inbox after I tried to move them because it did not work or the mails just were not removed from the inbox although they were copied already.

                            • Permit navigation when viewing messages in a separate window

                              It would be useful to be able to scroll through messages while viewing them in a separate window (instead of preview pane). This would allow user to quickly scan through messages in the folder without distraction to quickly process them. Also some messages have content that is wider than what the preview pane is currently set to, so this would allow the user to scroll through these messages without having to adjust the application window size and open up these messages individually

                              • subject line doesn't appear above message when animations/transparency off

                                When "Animations andTransparency" is disabled (in Preferences/Advanced/Advanced Graphics) The subject line of the selected message doesn't appear at the top of the message pane appear until I click in the top of the message pane (under the tool bar).

                                Re-enablling "Animations andTransparency" and restarting makes the subject line display as expected, but I'm trying to conserve clock cycles...

                                • Smart Folder Refresh

                                  Smart Folders (saved searches) don't refresh automatically, eg when a mail has been read. Eg if you have a Smart Folder that shows all unread mails, you have to navigate out and back to the Smart folder (or hit 1, 1) in order for those read mails to disappear. There should be a Cmd-R type facility to force-refresh (plus an automatic refresh).

                                  • Ability to move Send Button in the touchbar

                                    The Send button in the touchbar is not able to be moved. It just happens to sit under my left hand. I inadvertently touch it often, prematurely sending incomplete emails. If I could move it when editing the touchbar layout I could put it in an area that my fingers are less likely to hit it when I don't want to.

                                    • Display icons for folders in expanded sidebar

                                      Since most folders already have unique function-specific icons in condensed view, those could be used like finder-sidebar or subfolder/label icons also on the top level of the folder list for easier overview.

                                      • Filter list - tooltips or labels

                                        It would be nice to have a tooltip that appears on hover-over, or some sort of other label, for the filters in the Inbox (viewable by turning on "View > Show Filter".

                                        As-is, they're sort of "mystery meat navigation" and are tough to use if you don't remember which does what (see attached screenshot, where they are highlighted).

                                        • Account switch icons on MBP Touch Bar

                                          The MacBook Pro touch bar should show icons for the email accounts to allow quick switching between them.
