  1. Airmail 3.0 - Left side bar - more sizing options.

    In Airmail 3.0 The side bar menu on the left side seems to have been expanded and takes up too much room.

    - The accounts bar on the far left - add an option for us to make this about 1/2 as thick as it is now - or get rid it all together if we choose.
    - The Mailbox listing column - can no longer drag it smaller than the length of the folder names - please let us set the width we want.

    Thanks!

    • Customize the collapsed sidebar

      There is an ability to customize the sidebar, however it is not consistent when it is collapsed (narrow side-bar).

      • Bulk save attachments

        I get half a dozen emails with attachments I need to save. It would be nice to be able to select multiple emails, right click and save attachments to a specific directory

          • Colour Code sending account in composer

            With multiple accounts to choose from, it would be helpful if the dropdown menu in composer to choose which account to send from included the corresponding account colour. At the moment I have 6 accounts, and have to rely on the small image dots, or read the email text to determine which account I want to send from.

            • Ability to apply a color to email text or background in message list, like Mail.app

              One of my most-used features in Apple Mail is using rules to apply color to either the text of an email in the message list, or a tinted background, or both.

              PLEASE add this to Airmal. It makes it so much easier to distinguish emails in the message list at a glance.

              Thank you!

              • Add a toggle to show full headers in message view

                Add a toggle or clickable place (like the "see more" in apple Mail) that allows you to reveal the full list of addressees when viewing a message, rather than the popup box that shows all the headers in some strange non-intuitive fashion.

                • exchange account locks out after 2 working nicely for 2 days

                  after working nicely for 2 days my Exchange account e-mails stop being received / sent.
                  Deleting and re-installing the account sometimes works.

                  very annoying....

                  • Turning off autoload of remote images shouldn't turn off inline images

                    Since the latest update, Airmail has stopped showing inline images if the autoload of remote images is turned off. Because of remote images being used for tracking I'd like to keep the remote images off. However I'd still like to be able to see inline images.

                    • SpamSieve Drone Functionality

                      Airmail 3 currently supports SpamSieve for filtering mail. However, if your laptop/desktop is off and your using an iOS device, your mail is not being filtered for spam. By adding drone functionality (remote training of SpamSieve), iOS devices can benefit from spam filtering.

                      Please add drone functionality for SpamSieve to Airmail.
                      Thank you..

                      • Port the reader view from Apple Mail to Airmail.

                        Apple's Mail has the possibility of sending the reader view from a link out of Safari. Airmail is capable of sending the link directly from Safari which is already a great feature but it would be much better if it could also send the reader view from Safari directly from the composer as Apple Mail does.

                        • Sync ToDo Feature with Wunderlist or other To Do lists

                          I have many apps that generate ToDo items, but I really want them all synced to one central list. Wunderlist is what I use, but I'm sure other lists could benefit from the same functionality.

                          All i really need is a sync between Airmail and a List called 'Airmail' in Wunderlist.

                            • Multiple window view

                              I would like to be able to have more than one folder open at the same time, ideally in different windows. Often I have a specific search result in the main window and before I am finished working on those results I need to look at my inbox or review some other folder. I would like to be able to right-click on a folder (like All Inboxes) and select "Open in new window"

                              • Show labels only when they contain unread messages

                                Gmail has a feature where you can choose to only show a label in the label list if it has unread messages within it. I would love to see such a feature in Airmail.

                                Some backstory: I have set up many filters to put messages into various labels (bypassing the inbox) where I treat them as todo lists. When every label is visible at the same time, the UI is a bit overwhelming and it can be difficult to tell which label needs my attention. When labels are only visible when unread messages are within, it's easy to see what…

                                • Send birthday emails automatically

                                  Connect with my address book, find todays birthdays and send them a predefined (in settings) message on their birthday. Remind me at least once a year (let me choose the intervall) to change that message. Even better, create a folder (like Snooze) where the upcoming birthday messages are queued for delivery and where I could still add some "personal" message before they will be sent. Maybe fill that folder once a month or once a week (again, let me choose). That would save me really a lot of time every day.

                                  • view reply link

                                    After you have replied or forwarded a message, the icon shows that you have done this in the inbox. It would be great to have a link "show reply" when you are back in that message, so that you know what exactly was said without having to search the sent messages.
                                    These were simple options in Outlook 5+ years ago, I don't understand why these aren't included.

                                    • using conversations in Draft folders should be separate option from using convos in Sent

                                      Settings has a checkbox for "use conversations in Sent and Drafts folders". It is one checkbox for both folders; it should be two separate checkboxes.

                                      Conversations in Draft folders gets very confusing to figure out which message in the thread is your (unsent) draft, especially if it should happen that the conversation proceeds forward (ie, more people start sending more emails to you) before you have managed to get back to your draft and finish and send it. Finding where your draft message went in the display is difficult. So for Drafts, far better to be able to disable conversations.

                                      • Schedule/send later not only for Gmail and Outlook

                                        This one had so much votes
                                        http://feedback.airmailapp.com/forums/274948-airmail-mac-2-0/suggestions/4200245-scheduled-mail-sending
                                        and is now 'Done'

                                        But only for the GMail and Outlook folks. That's frustrating if you're not using any of them.

                                        I know there is no feature to postpone something on a SMTP server.
                                        But Airmail itself could hold the message and send it later. If you shutdown the app/OSX it won't go out, but that's still better than having no option at all.

                                        • Shift + Space Bar = Page Up

                                          Shift + space bar should scroll the page up. Right now space bar scrolls the message down -- this would compliment that well.
