  1. Set color for recipient names based on domain in Composer

    (Existing mac os mail feature). There are scary stories about people accidently putting external recipients on CC of [top scret] internal emails. Also, never want to send confidential customer info to a wrong person because of autosuggestion typo for CCed name.

    I'd like to configure recepient names colors in Composer by domain. Say, use blue for colleagues from my company, red for customer A, green for customer B and, say, brown for all other recipients. Being able to visually check the recipients removes a big part of email anxiety!

      • Per-email rather than per-account signature

        Add ability to choose the signature on the per-email rather than per-account basis. I like to use formal/informal signatures depending on the recipient and the only way currently is switch in the Preferences. Just add a pull-down menu of signatures in the email composer window.

        • Run all rules now

          Just simply the ability to run all of the established rules now. I find that if the rules didn't get triggered when email is downloaded, they never seem to trigger. Running each rule set by hand (I have 7) is tedious. (There is also a bug where the inbox view isn't refreshed when items have been moved out of it by a hand-executed rule.)

          • Delete email from a push notification

            When a notification comes in on my Mac (top right) it would be great to have the option to delete it right then. You offer the option to REPLY to the incoming email, and a DELETE option would be great as well. Apple Mail allows this. It’s a really quick & efficient way to delete something you immediately know you don’t need, rather than having to open the app.

            • Suggestions on To-Do implementation

              Hi - I've sent some notes via text, but I wanted to suggest a slightly different implementation for how Airmail handles To-Do items (and how it integrates with Gmails tags as a result). The current implementation makes it very difficult (and I think, for me, impossible) to create a consistent GTD implementation within Airmail (which was the use case I was so excited about). But I think one small change makes everything work (and may make some other features easier as well).

              Essentially the changes are these:
              1. Whenever an email DOESN'T have an Airmail-Done tag, it appears everywhere. Whenever…

                • Sender Profiles

                  It would be great to see a sender or contact profile. In particular I like the way that Polymail handles this. Perhaps an integration with something like FullContact to pull details?

                  • Show full Email-address by default

                    Besides showing the sender's name, also show the Email address by default (instead of having to click the pull-down arrow). This would improve security because phishing mails could be identified by their fake email addresses.

                      • Confirm send & No attachment

                        I often compose a large business mail which is important and I alter and extend the content multiple times. And it happened to me multiple times, that I accidentally send the mail before it was finished. It would be great if there's an option which we can active for every mail, that when I hit the send button, a confirmation window shows up if we are sure, that the mail should be sent out.

                        Also, I often write in mails "I've attached you the document in this mail" etc. and then forget to add the attachment, please implement something like…

                        • list-id based Smart Folder?

                          I'm on tons of mailing lists (fml), so I have a folder for each. Some of them are high value and I need to read those. It would be great if airmail had a way of grouping these into a smart folder. All these mailing lists should have a list-id header, so it would be good for airmail to support queries based on headers...

                          • it would be great to have a one button conversations ON/Off to improve

                            Like apple Mail and other applications to have a one button "Conversations On/Off" as currently one has to go through the preference panel to achieve this. Sometimes it is easier to search for an email outside a conversation, and sometimes it is not.

                            • Mute conversations (not just senders)

                              Please allow us to mute conversations (same as the mute feature in Gmail).

                              Use cases:

                              * Any work email chain where people start sending GIFs.
                              * Any work email chain with dozens of replies about some topic that I’m not interested in.

                              Currently we can mute senders, but I don’t want to mute my co-workers. I want to mute conversations that are low-priority.

                                Enable smart notifications like they have them on mobile. As I understand it, smart notifications mean that only emails addressed to me send a notification (so to avoid newsletter notifications etc). Spark has done this very well, it was one of my favorite features of theirs as it only disrupts my workflow when it really needs to (for what it understands to be important emails). In addition, Spark lets users select for each individual sender to be added to the smart list or not, which is useful, as not every email/sender sent to me means it's important (this is kind…

                                  The templates feature is awesome, thanks for implementing! I just have a few small issues with it.

                                  1. Embedded images saved in a template don't show up when using the template in an email.

                                  2. When using a template to respond to an email, it erases all previous correspondence and only includes the template.

                                    • Wunderlist: send the body of the email to the task too

                                      It helps as some times the subjects of the emails are very similar.

                                      I'll include not only the link to the email, which is very cool, but also the body of the email (as a note or as another comment).

                                      • subject line doesn't appear above message when animations/transparency off

                                        When "Animations andTransparency" is disabled (in Preferences/Advanced/Advanced Graphics) The subject line of the selected message doesn't appear at the top of the message pane appear until I click in the top of the message pane (under the tool bar).

                                        Re-enablling "Animations andTransparency" and restarting makes the subject line display as expected, but I'm trying to conserve clock cycles...
