  1. Please Allow Customization of the Condensed Sidebar

    I'd like customization options for the sidebar in condensed view. Currently, in normal view, you can customize your favorites, or the folders that appear in the sidebar. In condensed view, though, only the default favorites show. I'd like to be able to see my chosen favorites only in the condensed sidebar, rather than the favorites chosen by default.

    • have 'OR' instead of just 'AND' rules

      current rules are 'AND', limiting rules possibilities. Although it is possible to create multiple rules to achieve the same outcome, have one rule with 'or' has much better semantics and minimises the number of rules

      • Annotation on attached images ("markup" feature)

        For me it's very important to have a feature like mail.app "markup". I have to send images and screenshots to clients, and have to put arrows or text boxes explaining thoroughly my thoughts. This is a killer feature for me and I find myself today going to mail.app to perform this tasks, or even Photoshop when mail.app is behaving bad with my gmail accounts.

        I've attached some images to clarify what I'm talking about.

        • Activity list support BusyContacts

          I would really like to be able to completely abandon Apple Mail for Airmail on both Mac and iOS but I am missing support for the Activity List feature of Busycontacts. BusyMac assured me they did send all the necessary documentation to Bloop.

          From the Busycontacts' page https://support.busymac.com/help/62109-what-email-apps-are-busycal-and-busycontacts-compatible-with

          "BusyContacts displays mail messages in the Activity List sent to/from the selected contact. Currently, only messages from Apple Mail or MailMate are supported.

          In order to support third-party mail clients in BusyContacts, it requires work on the part of the mail vendor. Currently, only one third-party mail client, MailMate, has added support…

          • Option to include forwarded messages in conversation thread

            When forwarding a message, the forwarded mail is not included in the conversation thread (unless the option "Group by Subject" is activated, which is unhandy as it simply lumps everything together which has the same subject - not helpful when there are multiple conversation with the same subject.

            Hence an option would be desirable to allow a user to choose whether forwarded messages should be included in the conversation from which they have been forwarded or not.

              • Implement Mail Drop

                Let the user define a Threshold for the Attachment Size. If the Attachments exceed that size, they are send via Mail Drop (or Drop Box). Today it is possible to use Dropbox, but it is manual work (copying the Attachments to the Dropbox Folder, then manually select them via the Dropbox Icon). Instead, Airmail could copy large Attachments to a predefined Dropbox-Folder and just send the link. Totally transparent to the user. The user experience with Mail Drop in OSX Mail is what I would like to see.

                • Improve email header layout in printed message

                  The email header and general layout of a printed email message needs typing up. The header does not contain, on the printed message, information similar to OUTLOOK or MAIL.The information is somewhat scant and it's microscopic.

                  Secondly, the printed email on an A4 page does not format neatly. The printing is virtually edge-to-edge. Again, look at OUTLOOK and MAIL for a good layout and format of a printed email message. Unfortunately, the print preferences in MacOS don't allow you to change the layout of the message.

                  • Contact Profile/Summary Sidebar

                    It would be great if I could have the option to open up a sidebar that is dedicated to a contact. So when opening an email from "Brandon", his icon would pop up along with a history of all the emails we have exchanged, and the attachments that were sent.

                    This concept is similar to iPhone's messages app, where you can see all the photos sent. It's also a feature on Polymail. I don't like Polymail, I love Airmail. But that feature is prettyyyyy great.

                        • Send delayed message immediately

                          With delayed sending enabled, outgoing messages sit in Drafts during the delay. Allow me to right-click on one of these and choose "Send Immediately" to zero out the delay. There are plenty of messages that I know I want to send right away, but no way to expedite them without turning off the feature entirely.

                          • Import rules from Apple Mail

                            When switching from Apple Mail to Airmail, it is a huge project to manually recreate years' worth of accumulated Mail rules within Airmail.

                            It would be great to be able to import the existing SyncedRules.plist file into Airmail. Even if the rules required further customization from there to accommodate Airmail's different rules format and options, that would streamline things greatly!

                            • Gmail labels do not sync automatically

                              Upon testing with many many scenarios, I discovered the following. Suppose an email is labeled in Gmail with label A and B. One removes label A. As long as you remain in "folder" B the label A will never be removed in Airmail. Also not when you press refresh.

                              The only moment when the label is removed is when you open the folder of the label you just removed. So suppose I would go to label A folder, then rapidly I see the label disappear and when I then go back to the label B folder I see label A…

                              • I will move to Airmail if 1) move folder between local mailboxes 2) export all emails to mbox format in case of need of change client

                                1) need to move folder between local mailboxes - it's crucial. Outlook, Thuderbird have it, why AirMail doesn't?

                                2) In case of need of change mail client I'd like to export all my e-mails with folders from local mailbox to any mbox format, etc. Why it is not there, while all other mail clients have it?

                                  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.

                                  • Allow to keep attachment on reply

                                    Create options to keep attachments on reply, either as default functionality or for each message. Create a shortcut for it.

                                    Use case: Someone emails me a file, I want to reply and point to something within the file, so need the attachment.

                                    Current workarounds: forward and add the same person (makes no sense) or reply then add attachment again (lost time).

                                    • Use color labels

                                      I use an independent mail provider. In Apple Mail you can put multiple labels in different colors on one message, what I use a lot. But when I use a label in Apple Mail, Airmail just put a star on the mail despite how many labels/flags and which color I put on a message in Apple Mail. Please fix that. As I had to buy your app to find this out, because there is no trial version.

                                        'send to calendar' in iOS app should have the option to 'send to fantastical'

                                          In the biz world, we like to see all info from prior email not just "so and so wrote on this date"

                                          Please add the ability to reply with full headers from prior emails such as:

                                          From: "Last, First" <name@domain.com>
                                          Date: Wednesday, July 6, 2016 at 2:05 PM
                                          To: First Last <name@domain.com>, "Last, First" <name@domain>
