You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

  1. Bug report: hit trash button, app freezes

    When I hit the trash button on the top menu, the window freezes and looks like this. I have to force quit the app and re open it. No issues when archiving messages though. Happens every time I try to delete a message using the trash icon on the top row menu.

      It would be great to support Firefox Send (https://send.firefox.com)
      for big attachments

      • Separate VIP's per account instead of displaying them all together.

        Only display VIP's related to the Account. If in "All Accounts" view, that's when you can display all VIP's from multiple accounts.

        • 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!

          • Bug in Message Detail window (Mac OS)

            Airmail 3.5.3 (461)
            MacBook Pro running OS X 10.11.6 (15G17023)
            Preferences->Appearance as shown in first attachment

            Problem: text wrapping in Message Detail pane truncates message text on right margin, but only after Message Details have been turned off and then back on. Restarting Airmail fixes the problem. I have replicated the problem and show the steps to make it appear.

            1. Figure Detail-Window-Normal.png shows the message detail window behaving properly - right edge wraps text in the message

            2. Now close the Message Detail pane, either with command+left-arrow or using the View->Hide-Message-Detail.

            3. Re-open the Message Detail pane using either…

            • Clearing search term does not bring messages back

              1. From "All Inboxes"
              2. Search
              3. Filtered messages appear
              4. Clear search
              5. Empty messages

              I need to open a specific mailbox and then go back to "All Mailbox" to bring back the messages.

              • Store emails only locally

                Since I have very small company mailbox it would be great to have an option that allows me to store all emails only locally or just N newest in the mailbox and the rest on my hard drive.

                  • 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.

                    • Composer overhaul

                      I know this is rather a summary of different "ideas" and not all are new but I am afraid that 15+ ideas with 4-5 votes will never get the attention so I figured I'd just summarize them. So maybe it's me but I think proper email formatting is a basic functionality that should be given. The way the composer works today is beta status *at best*:

                      * Everytime I add a bullet or numbered list via markdown editor, I get double spacing between the bullets/ list items (when I paste from Byword, it looks fine!)
                      * In general, there is…

                      • reply to html email embeds local paths

                        I've got plain text outbound emails. When I reply to an html email with attachments, I get quoted text like this:

                        > [file:///Users/ari/Library/Group Containers/2E337YPCZY.airmail/Library/Application Support/it.bloop.airmail2/Airmail/General/Local/1513579233195297024/Attachments/image001.png@01D37821.E689F0D0]

                        Clearly these local paths should not be exposed to other users. Either give me the option to send as html or just strip inline attachments.

                          • Attachments overhaul

                            There are a few comments/pieces of feedback on attachments. But other than the composer, it's another bit of Airmail that could do with a proper revamp. Feels like an afterthought at the moment.

                            — Attachments at TOP of mail, not at the bottom or randomly in the email chain... Apple Mail sticks them at the bottom too and it's hella annoying, especially if the chain is long or when you're hunting for an old attachmrnt somewhere
                            – Attachment/file view and/or manager. i.e. being able to view an inbox folder or sender as a file manager folder to organise attachments.
                            —…

                            • 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.

                              • Find text within an email being viewed

                                Currently there is only a search interface for filtering emails. Cmd-F while viewing an email switch to this (hiding the current email).

                                Worse, when viewing an email as a separate window, Cmd-F brings up the search interface in the main window, while giving no indication that it's done anything in the email window. If the email window is obscuring the main Airmail window then you can't tell that it did anything at all. This is sufficiently bad as to border on being a straight out UX bug.

                                Right now if I want to find something INSIDE a specific email I…

                                    Customer service left me hanging many times. Just terrible service, as they cant get my email up and running either. It would also help if they spoke English fluently

                                        There is a feature in Mac Mail that I found extremely useful.

                                        When composing an email, Mac Mail was able to determine which account I was meant to be sending from based on who I am sending to.

                                        For example:

                                        Lets say we have 2 email accounts, account 1, 2 and 3

                                        When I email customer 1, I always use account 2.
                                        When I email customer 2 I always use account 1.

                                        Mac Mail learns this pattern and auto swaps to the correct account when I add the recpient to the email.

                                        In my case I use at least 8…

                                        • Do not autocapitalize first line of body for German language

                                          In the composer the first line below the salutation (e.g. "Dear Sir or Madam," or "Sehr geehrte Damen und Herren," in German) the first line of the body gets autocapitalized, which is wrong according to German grammar rules (unless the first word is a noun or some special pronoun (i.e. "Sie" for the English "you" directed at a respected person)
