  1. Manual Configuration of Office365 Account Fails Because of Autodiscover

    When adding an Exchange account, originally Autodiscover fails after a few minutes because it tried to find an Exchange server at the TLD. However, that domain name's e-mail is hosted by Office365. After failing the first time, Airmail then asks for a server, which is outlook.office365.com. Clicking "Add," again, I get the same error: "Autodiscover Failed."

    Attached is a screenshot of the error. The e-mail address is not @hotmail.com, @outlook.com, or any of the free Microsoft e-mail offerings.

    • Search option in Settings

      The settings in Airmail (all versions) are *quite* extensive. I would recommend the implementation of a Search functionality, much like the search function now in iOS where you drag down the screen a small amount to reveal a Search bar that would filter to the keywords you enter.

        • conversations option by folder

          Allow conversations view to be selected by folder.

          E.G. Maybe I don't want conversations in my Inbox, but have a listserve folder where it would be useful.

            I want to customize the header to add icons such as delete, forward, print, etc. The only icon shown now is new message and reply.

            For example, in Safari you can customize the header to show Home, print, etc.

            • New Mail Sounds Only

              Please add the ability to enable sounds for new mail messages only!

              I want to hear when a new message arrives, but in doing so, I don't want to have to hear all the other sounds in the app, which are extraneous, in my opinion.

              • Finnish translation:

                There is a small but annoying detail when replying an email in Finnish:
                AirMail in English starts the reply like this:
                ”On 2. March xxxx xxxxxxx wrote”
                Airmail in Finnish starts the reply like this:
                ”Päällä 2. Maaliskuuta xxxx xxxxxxx kirjoitti”

                Seems like the system simply replaces the preposition ”On” with a translation ”Päällä”, which literally means in English ”On top of something”. The start of the reply sentence in Finnish would be perfect and understandable if ”On ” is just replaced with a blank space.

                    • Improve startup time

                      It takes forever for Airmail 3.0.1 to startup on my MacBook Pro running El Capitan. Time is waisted for up to 5 minutes waiting for messages to load.
                      I;ve done everything from following the tips here:
                      https://medium.com/@Airmail/how-to-speed-up-your-airmail-initialization-f7662cfbeef7#.68h7nhife

                      as well as uninstalling & reinstalling Airmail. It's still slow & very frustrating,

                      • Open links behind airmail OR in front

                        Prefs allow to select whether links in messages should open a browser directly or behind airmail.
                        My request would be to allow this to be controlled on an individual level as in Apple Mail. Set one option as the general preference, allow the other via right click (or something).
                        It seems like a small thing but it is actually the one thing that is keeping me in Apple Mail!
                        And it seems easy to implement?

                        • Fonts for Reading Messages

                          Please provide us with the option to change reading fonts and resize them. The default is very large compared to everything else I use. As a result, reading my email also requires needless scrolling.

                          Thanks!

                            • Zoom level on replies

                              Right now you can set a zoom level for viewing the emails and the main interface. However on reply, forward, etc. the new window is open with the default (100%?) zoom setting. It would be nice if the reply window would have the same zoom as the main window/interface.

                              Thanks!

                              • allow change account font color

                                This was available in Airmail 2, MacOS (10.10.5), and is an option that doesn't work in Airmail 3. Specifically, under accounts, using the gear icon to change the icon works. There is the option to change the font color - doesn't work in this new version. Saved multiple times to no avail. Problem is the color is too low contrast to easily determine which account I'm in. Please fix.

                                • Make "Horizontal Quote" preference work for forwarded messages

                                  The setting under Preferences > Appearance > Horizontal Quote works for email replies but not forwards.

                                  It would be great if it worked when forwarding an email.

                                    • Hide message preview in new email notification

                                      It would be great to have the message preview hidden in the notification alert. Not that it shows a large portion of the email, but I do work on my computer around others and just having the subject appear would help with confidentiality a bit better.

                                        The snooze buttons are not translated in dutch.
                                        But more importantly the snooze calendar (when you opt for pick a date) is not localized. Sunday is not the start of the week in Europe, it is monday. I always choose the wrong day when I browse in the calendar.

                                        Btw. The snooze functionality is really great!

                                          Would love to change black background color to grey as white on black is very hard on my eyes.
