    • Archiving a thread puts the cursor back to the top

      I go from the top and start archiving emails one by one. Usually after pressing the delete button, it archives the email and puts the cursor on the next email. However, when the email is part of a thread, it archives all emails in the thread and moves the cursor to the top. It looks extremely buggy and is extremely inconvenient. Can you at least put the cursor on the next email?

      • Slider/Popups can be annoying when using other apps

        I'd like to start by saying I really like Airmail but one particular feature can be inconvenient.

        When I'm in another app, like Safari, the "slider" or "pop up" that appears in the upper right hand corner to notify me of a new email just sits there for several seconds, blocking access to features in the other app.

        If the pop up had a couple buttons on it, that would be really great.

        OPEN
        CLOSE
        DELETE

        options right in the pop up would make it so useful, If I want to look at it right away, I'd use OPEN. If…

        • undo delete

          when deleting a messaged (for me, it's the left arrow), then command+z doesn't bring that message back. instead, it brings back another messaged, often times somewhere else in the list, but I don't know which one - just see my message ticker tick up. #frustrated.

          • show related messages

            Please add an action that allows listing an browsing all messages related to the message currently selected–something similar to the 'show related message' button in Apple Mail. Thanks

            • cambiare la posizione dei tasti/scomparsa dei tasti dopo pochi sec

              Vedi allegato: Con l'iPhoneX non e' possibile fare tap sul link in fondo alla email (tipico il caso dell'unsubscribe delle newsletter) perche' coperto dai tre pulsanti. Due soluzioni: cambiare la loro posizione (Brutta), fare in modo che i tre comandi scompaiano dopo pochi secondi o con una X standard

              • Search option in Settings

                The settings in Airmail (all versions) are *quite* extensive. I would recommend the implementation of a Search functionality, much like the search function now in iOS where you drag down the screen a small amount to reveal a Search bar that would filter to the keywords you enter.

                  • Auto-select 'from' when composing a new email

                    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)

                      • Odd behaviour when using dual screens (Retina + non-retina)

                        I have a Retina macbook plugged into a DELL 24" monitor. I've noticed TWO anomalies using Airmail in this configuration:

                        1) Email attachments are never displayed on my non-retina screen. Just a huge blank space where the attachment should be.

                        Dragging the window across to my Retina then displays the attachment.

                        2) grabbing a screenshot on my retina screen and dropping into an email displays the image at double the resolution - I guess this is expected behaviour but it *does* mean that I'm forever resizing images and reloading them.

                        • Follow-up reminders - so much room for improvement!

                          Love that we can set follow-up reminders to outgoing email in the event of a non-reply. However, the execution of the idea, in my opinion, leaves something to be desired:

                          1 - please arrange for the reminders to be moved automatically when the email is answered. Needing to do this manually, remembering which emails have been answered, is unnecessarily time- and energy-consuming.

                          2 - please use clearer flags for emails that have gone unanswered. I know we receive a notification each time the deadline passes, but this hovers in the top right corner of the screen for a few seconds…

                          • Include spacers as an available Touch Bar element

                            Your Touch Bar support is great, simple, and wonderfully color-coded.

                            All I request is the inclusion of Spacers, so I can keep some buttons aligned to the left or right.

                            • Default 'from' email address to the inbox being selected

                              I have 4 email addresses configured in Airmail. Right now when I pick an email inbox and then choose to compose an email, the 'from' field is defaulted to a particular email address. Each time I have to remember to select the correct from email address before I send which is proving to be a difficult task. Please automate the from email address to whichever inbox I have selected or to which email address the email was sent to in the first place.

                              • Gmail access rights get lost

                                About each and every week Airmail completely loses its access to my gmail account. Whenever this happens, Airmail opens up a Chrome browser tab like every 60 seconds or so, asking me to relogin and reverify the access rights (see pics attached).

                                This may be due to the fact that I'm extensively using Chrome's profiles with different Gmail accounts, but I'm not really sure because that seems to happen quite randomly and not every time I open up another Window from within a different profile.

                                Any suggestions on this?
                                Thanx.

                                • Exchange Sync Stability

                                  I've got a work email with exchange and syncing it with airmail can be frustrating.

                                  Main issue is that occasionally the exchange connection will hang/disconnect. Most frustratingly is when I send an email and it doesn't send, and I also lose the content of the email. It isn't in the draft/outbox folder!

                                  Perhaps I'm missing something but it has happened numerous times and I don't understand why.

                                  Feedback /improvement would be great!

                                  • Starting sentences with "On" hides the rest of the message

                                    In both the Mac and iOS clients (most up to date as of 11/17/17), I noticed that whenever there is a sentence that starts with "On" in the body of the email, that sentence and the rest of the email will be hidden as if Airmail thinks that the remainder of the message is part of the reply thread.

                                    I assume this is because most replies start with "On XXX at YYY, ZZZ wrote:". Would it be possible to change the default email folding so that Airmail looks at the word "On" in context instead of assuming that anything that…

                                      When I disable "show message detail" and only look at my list of emails, there is no easy way to delete an email other than swiping left or right. It would be nice to have hover icons (that appear when you hover) to the right of the "unread" and "star" indicators.

                                      In this same view, if I double click an email to open it, the message will appear in a new window (as expected). However, this window does not contain any customizable icons. One major issue is that there is no "trash" icon. So it's hard to double-click an email…

                                      • Option to disable notification of one account (Do Not Disturb)

                                        (Idea: Josemar Davi Luedke; i’m just bumping it)

                                        ''Would be very good to have the option to turn off the notification of one specify account when needed. For example, you work remotely from the rest of your team and you get a lot of messages when you are doing your personal stuff. You still want to receive your personal emails but not the work ones.''

                                        • Relative date links should be calculated using the email's "Sent" time.

                                          Airmail is great at recognizing relative dates in the text of an email (e.g. and generating links to create calendar events based on them. However, it seems the event date and time end up being calculated from the current time. However, if the email isn't read on the same day it is sent, this results in an incorrect date being used when creating the calendar event.

                                          For example, if someone sends me an email on Monday with the text "tomorrow at 3pm" in it, it will be highlighted as a link. If I read the email on Monday and click…
