  1. Apple Watch complications

    The title says it all: there are no "complications" on the first release of the iOS app which really is a shame.

    I'd love to see a minimalist complication (ie: a small letter with a badge count for unread mail, in the way Microsoft did it with Outlook complications) which could be added to the watch faces.. It would fix the only negative aspect of an otherwise full-featured and killer apple watch app. You know what you have to do!

    • Change the Account Creation using the email Address

      Hello,

      The Account Creation should not be linked to the email address I believe. It should have some other free Text form or some other format. Since this prevents creating another email account with the same address when we want to preserve of existing mails when the email server is getting retired or changed

      There is not much thought process is been done on this i presume

      This feature would improve the value of the mail client

        • Different signature on reply

          A common use case is to want to send a larger signature when first contacting a person (say name, title, address), but use a slimmer one on replies (usually only name, for example).

          This would be great to have

          • Can't use different accounts if they use same email address

            I have an outlook account with an address xxx@outlook.com. My icloud account also uses xxx@outlook.com. I can't set up both accounts with Airmail, because it says the email address is already being used when I try to set up the second account (any order - second account always fails). This is a fatal flaw, as icloud users may well register with their existing yahoo, outlook, hotmail, or gmail address. As it is, Airmail can't be used by any of these people for anything but a single account.

            • Manually send delayed message

              I love that Airmail has duplicated the gmail feature of delaying messages, but I've often found myself mildly annoyed by having to wait around for messages to send (unlike gmail, where the message sends immediately if you simply leave the page you sent the message from). So, I'm wondering if you could simply make a new dialog box for messages waiting to send along the lines of "Send Now." You already have a "Cancel" button on messages waiting to send; so, I would think that this would be easy to implement, and nice to have the option to manually force…

              • Import mboxes outside of Apple Mail system mboxes

                It took me forever to figure this out, but mbox from Apple Mail are not imported using the steps in the Knowledge Base Support page UNLESS the mbox is in the [user]>Library>Mail>V2 folder.

                An mbox that is exported from Mail onto the desktop or anywhere else does not import.

                Please allow an mbox that is outside Library>Mail to be imported. This is especially important for anyone who has backed up their Apple Mail mboxes.

                Also, until you add this feature, please change the Support Know Base page to make this clearer.

                • sync flags with Apple Mail. Both colour and label

                  I use Apple Mail and all my mail is flagged with a different colour for "business",Interests" etc etc. I prefer to use Airmail though and would like it to pick up Apple Mail flags and labels and allow me to use the same in Airmail.
                  Thanks

                  • Data Time Selectors On Snooze Settings Do Not Respect Regional Settings

                    When regional settings are set to use 24 hour clock, snooze preferences still use the am/pm 12 hour clock system. Time settings in preferences should respect the system's regional settings.

                    • Add VIP only for certain account

                      Currently, if I add a VIP, the folder is visible for all accounts, even if I would never send/receive email for that person in certain accounts. It would be nice to be able to select the account(s) where the VIP folder is visible, instead of it automatically being visible in all accounts.

                        Make a Linux version. The Linux email client options are brutal. You guys would own it.

                        • Allow date parameters to empty trash automatically after X days

                          Empty trash after each session.
                          Empty trash after one day
                          Empty trash after 7 days
                          Empty trash after 30 days
                          Never empty trash.
                          ... something like that?

                          • Add a Quick Snooze Feature

                            Please add these two improvements:

                            1) Add a quick snooze button to the toolbar to defer emails which when clicked defers emails to one of the defined snooze options.

                            2) Offer the snooze options as a menu as an alternative to a pop-up grid.

                            • Collect email statistics/analytics, show productivity metrics

                              Even if you used a web based (i.e. keen.io) graphing library, it would be really cool to have a bunch of statistics like time spent daily on managing email, average time to response, percentage of useless email not read or responded to, etc etc.

                                • Turn off Selection Inclusion on Reply

                                  I have been using Airmail for several years now, and there is one feature that still kind of irks me. Often times, I will select and copy a password or email address in the conversation. Then, I will go to reply to the message, and only the selection is included in the reply. This has caused me to to have to close out the message and start a new one countless times. Do you mind adding a preference where Airmail doesn't do this by default? Thank you for your consideration.

                                  • better rules screen

                                    The rules window needs to be improved to make it more understandable. As you can see in the attached screenshot the mailbox selection should go above the if statement.
                                    That would make more sense since right now it looks like "any" single rule can activate the action which would mean "any mail in my inboxes" not just the ones that are true for the lines following the account selection line. In practice the way it works now is the rule checks the account/s I've chosen and then goes through the if/then on each of those rules. I've included a screenshot…

                                      • Editing Received & Sent Emails

                                        My favorite feature in the Postbox (Thunderbird-based) email client is the ability to edit the body of a text. I often add "notes" to myself within the body and then I can see my "notes" from any device or email client. This would be an excellent power user feature.

                                          Really needing lots of features from the recently released EasilyDo Mail app in the iphone app store (https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/email-easilydo-mail/id922793622?mt=8). Specifically categorizing Trips/Bills/Packages/Entertainment etc. and the ability to unsubscribe from email subscriptions without leaving the app. I'm extremely conflicted and almost ready to switch just for the ability to unsubscribe from junkmail very easily. Please make this a feature!
