  1. Make Message Browsing Snappier

    The delay between clicking a Message in List view and it being displayed is too long (> 100 ms) and makes the overall message browsing experience feel very sluggish. I'd like Messages to render instantly, possibly in a preview mode or as plain text. And I'd also like the keyboard based navigation of messages to not be delayed by the rendering of the message view. Ideally browsing is as snappy as navigating the Filesystem in Finder and Quicklook previews.

    • Make "Copy Message Link" accessible via contextual menu

      I love using the "Copy Message Link" feature, so that I can link directly to important messages in my Project Management and ToDo list software. But it always frustrates me that I can't simply right-click on a message in order to copy the message link, and have to click on the Edit menu to get to it.

      I know i can use a Keyboard Shortcut to do this, but it'd be nice to have it accessible from the contextual menu, since even though I find the feature useful, I dont use it often enough that I've internalized the keyboard shortcut…

        • 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.

          • 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.

            • Add "Export as PDF" menu bar item in macOS version

              Mail.app has this, and it makes saving a message as a PDF much faster than selecting the Print menu then saving it as a PDF

                  • Allow any date for snooze, not just a date within 90 days.

                    Snooze as of version 3.2.3 (417) only allows to pick a date up to 90 days from today. Please, remove this limit.

                      • Hide "Done" items

                        Be able to hide "Done" items (exactly like "Show Starred")

                        This would be a better/simpler workaround for this, and I think basically solves my problem:

                          • mark emails while composing

                            It would be great if there was an option when composing an email to flag addresses. Example, in Apple Mail, you can toggle an option to flag addresses not ending in @work.com. This is a great option when using your work email, so you don't accidentally send a work related item to a friend, or to a colleague's personal email. It simply highlights the address in red when you are composing your email.

                            • Ellipsis (collapse) un-quoted (old reply) part of message sent via Outlook Web Access clients

                              Collapsing of old (quoted) replies in each message works well when receiving those messages from most email clients.

                              But for some reason Outlook Web Access doesn't use a common previous-reply quoting markup.

                              Can you please find and support collapsing of their alternative quoting?
                              OWA is able to do it itself I believe.

                              The real problem is if I get fifty emails back and forth from OWA users, I'll have to scroll forever to find the out-of-order (not quoted) replies, etc.

                              Making this even more bothersome is some auto-reloading timer Airmail does with its viewing pane... whereby all my manual scrolling…

                                • Text Encoding selectable for mails

                                  Sometimes it shows contents of the mail with incorrect text encoding (i.e. Chrinese-Big5 incorrectly selected as UTF-8). And I could not choose the right one to show contents correctly. Just like Mail for OS X, Airmail should support this feature in the future!

                                      right now on version 3.2.4 it freezes the whole app and can take even a couple of minutes to display the mail (macOS 10.12.3)

                                      • 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).

                                        • Account connection lost not after sleep; Red Account name.

                                          I keep seeing my accounts will not connect to gmail when login to my computer. The account names are highlighted red. Maybe after 10 to 15minutes they come back, but I usually have to restart airmail to get it to sync again.
