  1. 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!

    • Delete attachments

      It would be great to have the option to delete attachments in multiple mails and automatically create the note "File xxxx.yyy was deleted" in each mail. Compare Apple.mail.

      • Turn sounds on and off for different actions individually

        I would like to keep the sound on when a message is sent, but I don't want to hear the sound every time a mail is deleted or moved to another folder. Instead of all sounds on or off, how about check boxes for which actions will have sounds.

        Thanks

        • "Send again" command should autofill the recipient field correctly

          The "Send Again" command currently has a bug. It autofills the "Recipient" field with MY e-mail address, instead of the original recipient's address.

            • Allow User to move folders between accounts

              The purpose of this feature is to make it easier for users to migrate between email providers , such as going from Google to Office 365, or similar use case. For example: A user moves their DNS domain to the new provider, updates DNS records, and now wants the same email and folders in the new mailbox. Currently, they need to manually create destination folders, select emails in the old folder, and use the transfer to menu option to initiate the transfer,

              My idea is to let them click and drag the folder from the old mailbox to the new…

                • Sierra - Menu bar

                  In Sierra, fix the menu bar icon so it's visible when Airmail is my front most application which will again allow users to minimize the application using the menu bar.

                  • Automatic reply in Airmail

                    Hello,
                    will be absolutely perfect if you add automatic reply to Airmail with scheduling. For example, from 0:00 - 08:00 will be auto reply turned on.

                    Thank you

                    • System Font

                      Both the composer and reader view should use the system font (San Francisco) as default.
                      Of course with the possibility of changing it in the preferences.
                      Right now SF is used in the left list bar but not in the main message window (or in the composer).
                      Also, the line height should be increased, right now the email text is difficult to read.
                      The same thing should be done for the iOS app, of course.

                      • Notification for Failed Sending

                        Currently failed sendings only show up in the Drafts box, with the only notification being the Drafts folder turning red. I ended up not noticing failed sendings sometimes hours or even days after sending it, which got me into trouble a few times. I would love a delivery notification pop-up, email, or even a ping to notify that a delivery has failed. Thanks!

                        • Let me read the full e-mail instead of making me scroll from side to side!

                          I would much rather sacrifice ~visual quality~ for not having to scroll back and forth just to read the full contents of an e-mail. Zoom out doesn't work to do this (it won't let me zoom out to the point where I don't have to scroll side to side).

                          • Make app switcher (cmd-tab) in full screen mode work again

                            I mostly use Airmail (and many other apps) in Full Screen mode, using the App Switcher (cmd-tab) to switch between apps.

                            When switching back to Airmail, the app does not switch to the Airmail window. I have to switch back by doing cmd-tab immediately followed by shift-cmd-tab to make it work.

                            (I sometimes have this problem with Calendar too, so might be caused by something else. Suggestions?)

                              • Make the v keyboard shortcut as responsive and fast as it was in Airmail 2

                                A feature that I use a lot, is the keyboard shortcut V to move messages to a given folder. In Airmail 2, this used to be very fast as – I just pressed v and immediately proceeded by typing the first few letters of the folder name. Now I just upgraded to Airmail 3, and I find that I now have to wait a moment after I press v before I start writing the name of the folder, or else it misses the first letter. This is really annoying, so I hope you can make it work as well as it…

                                  It'd be nice to be able to hide the reply to field (or not need to tab through it) since I rarely use it. Can that be added to preferences?

                                  • 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,

                                    • Exchange logout notifications

                                      My work Exchange server has a habit of locking me out when it disapproves of something or other - as well as insisting on a monthly password reset. Airmail gives me no feedback when the connection is down, unlike almost every other desktop and mobile app I can think of. There've been many times when I've tried sending a bunch of emails and only discovered the next morning that none went out because the connection failed. Couldn't Airmail push an alert that the Exchange login needs attention?

                                      • Deleting previous recipients

                                        There should be a way to delete previous recipients, that aren't stored in your address / contacts list. As in: if I replied to a seller on Craigslist, the email address used shouldn't be stored indefinitely in the app, it makes auto-completing other email addresses a nightmare.

                                        Apple Mail fixes this by: Window - Previous Recipients - and now I'm able to mass-delete.

                                        Thank you :)

                                        • Save drafts to respective mail boxes

                                          Saving a draft is currently being done locally.

                                          Saving a draft to the original mailbox would enable the email to get finished later, on another device and/or client.

                                          This also reduces the need for Airmail to hold on to those drafts.
