  1. Option to search only for messages in Inbox or another single folder

    At the moment the search function (eg. by sender or keyword) searches every folder on your account, which a lot of the time is great. However, it woudl also be useful to be able to filter the results just to find relevant messages (eg. by sender or keyword) just in the inbox or another single folder. Useful for when you are trying to find someting you know is in your Inbox or another folder you are searching through.

    • Bulk save attachments

      I get half a dozen emails with attachments I need to save. It would be nice to be able to select multiple emails, right click and save attachments to a specific directory

      • view reply link

        After you have replied or forwarded a message, the icon shows that you have done this in the inbox. It would be great to have a link "show reply" when you are back in that message, so that you know what exactly was said without having to search the sent messages.
        These were simple options in Outlook 5+ years ago, I don't understand why these aren't included.

        • Customize the collapsed sidebar

          There is an ability to customize the sidebar, however it is not consistent when it is collapsed (narrow side-bar).

          • Multiple Sending of same email??

            I attached 6 photos this am and the client called and the email was sending to him OVER and OVER. Not a good thing...!

            Has anyone else had this issue. I composed a new email and dragged them into the email to send them....!

            And I am seeing a trend on Mac OS X and on iPhone when sending attachments.

            On the iPhone the Send with function results in errors! Send Failure and it trued over and over until it just gives up?

            • Group messages by type

              Similar to Spark (another MacOS email app), auto-group incoming mail into newsletters, personal, mailing lists etc. Helps you get through your mailbox faster and prioritize.

              • Fonts for Reading Messages

                Please provide us with the option to change reading fonts and resize them. The default is very large compared to everything else I use. As a result, reading my email also requires needless scrolling.

                Thanks!

                • Grammarly - Grammatical Correction and Vocabular Enhancement

                  Let Grammarly do grammatial corrections to my composed emails.

                  https://www.grammarly.com

                  Right now I have to compose emails in grammarly and then copy and paste into airmail, it would be nice if it was done in place since they support that already in any browser.

                  • Ability to apply a color to email text or background in message list, like Mail.app

                    One of my most-used features in Apple Mail is using rules to apply color to either the text of an email in the message list, or a tinted background, or both.

                    PLEASE add this to Airmal. It makes it so much easier to distinguish emails in the message list at a glance.

                    Thank you!

                    • Turning off autoload of remote images shouldn't turn off inline images

                      Since the latest update, Airmail has stopped showing inline images if the autoload of remote images is turned off. Because of remote images being used for tracking I'd like to keep the remote images off. However I'd still like to be able to see inline images.

                      • Delete attachments

                        It would be great to have the option to delete attachments in multiple mails and automatically create the note "File xxxx.yyy was deleted" in each mail. Compare Apple.mail.

                        • Hide or View Reply to Field

                          It'd be nice to be able to hide the reply to field (or not need to tab through it) since I rarely use it. Can that be added to preferences?

                          • Improve startup time

                            It takes forever for Airmail 3.0.1 to startup on my MacBook Pro running El Capitan. Time is waisted for up to 5 minutes waiting for messages to load.
                            I;ve done everything from following the tips here:
                            https://medium.com/@Airmail/how-to-speed-up-your-airmail-initialization-f7662cfbeef7#.68h7nhife

                            as well as uninstalling & reinstalling Airmail. It's still slow & very frustrating,

                            • Make it easier to save embedded images

                              When someone sends me an embedded image. There's no way to download it or open it from within the program. There should be a right click or button to download all. Instead, I have to copy the image, paste it into Photoshop, and then save it from there with a made-up name (as no name is displayed within Airmail).

                              This seems like a no-brainer, or am I the one with no brain?

                              • 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.

                                • Advanced Search in Airmail is SERIOUSLY lacking. Several critical issues that need to be addressed

                                  1-The search bar needs enough space to have at LEAST 3 or 4 arguments,... currently can only do 1!,.. maybe 2 if they are short. Possibly a separate dropdown menu for this would help.

                                  2-We need Exclusive results!,.. If I want to search for email that I sent to a contact and ONLY that contact I currently can't do that. The results that come up shows that same person even if others are involved!!!

                                  3-We need Exclusive results again!... If i want to search emails whose subject starts with "C " (that's the letter C then space) i can't do…

                                    • 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

                                        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.

                                          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…
