  1. 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…

    • 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…

      • Organizing rules in folders

        I have lots of different inboxes and each of them needs sorting rules. Since they are many: the rules list is becoming almost endless.

        It would be nice to be able to organize rules in folders, like you do with computer files

        • 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)

          • 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!

                • Fix Default Sender preference - neither "Selected", nor "Ask" options work.

                  Please fix the Default Sender preference. Neither "Selected Account", nor "Ask" options are currently working. In my Airmail, the account listed first (top) is always used.

                  • 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…

                      • Using "Save..." to save attachments should let us optionally rename the file

                        When saving an attachment, I want to be able to:

                        - Rename the file (for receipts etc. so I can rename them with my naming convention "YYYY-MM-DD Business - Item")
                        - Choose default folders to save attachments in with associated action buttons. (I want to be able to tap 'Save Business Receipt' or "Save Business Expense" next to an attachment and it will open the "Save.." window to the relevant folder on Dropbox, Google Drive or local Hard Disk etc.)
                        - Give us the ability to move the "Save..." window around. Sometimes after clicking "Save...", I need to refer to…

                          • Send to Bear

                            Glad that there is integration with Bear, but would love to be able to create a note in Bear similar to what can be done with Evernote: with full text, images displayed and including attachments, rather than with just a link to the email in Airmail.

This would enable AirMail usage for accounts managed by draconian IT departments that don't allow app passwords while having MFA enabled. Thanks!

                                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.

                                • Automatically use different email signature for replies

                                  I can see that this idea has been suggested a couple of times previously but not had the attention it deserves, so this is an attempt to finally get a desperately needed feature added.

                                  Coming from MS Outlook, I really miss the ability to have a separate signature for new emails and one for replies and forwarding. I know that Airmail allows multiple signatures to be created, but manually selecting a different one for replies in tedious, time-consuming and simply doesn't make sense when using the Quick Reply feature!

                                    • Improve local folder performance

                                      Moving one or more mails from inbox to local folders is hit or miss at best. Sometimes it takes several repeat attempts, sometimes it happens 10's of seconds or a minute after being actioned. Sometimes one can go ahead and do other moves which work or fail before the original occurs. It's the most annoying and time consuming part of Airmail on
                                      Mac usage.

                                      • 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

                                        • Mors themes or ability to create/import new themes

                                          I would like to have new choices for the themes in Airmail.
                                          I like ProXL but I don't want the text of the email, just the object, the sender and the labels.
                                          So, I would like to have some new themes, and/or the possibility to import some creation from great creators so it would be great to be able to create new themes ;)
