  1. Provide access to Gmail for accounts without IMAP/POP3 capabilities.

    Compete with Kiwi and WMail by providing a desktop platform for accessing Gmail when Gmail has IMAP/POP3 administratively disabled. Having a native capability to email within the application as opposed to "a window around the web interface" like Kiwi/WMail provide would be a TREMENDOUS capability. I have all of my account in Airmail with the exception of my work Gmail based account and many people are desperate for a client based workflow for Gmail without IMAP/POP3 access.

      • Switch to Todoist upon Creating Task

        In iOS, after using the Todoist integration, the task is brought to the front within Todoist so that the user can add specifics (due date, priority, etc.) to the new task. This behavior should be replicated in MacOS. Currently, using the Todoist integration only sends the email to a specific project such that the user then needs to switch to Todoist, find the new task, and then open it to edit the details.

        Taking this all a step further, please take a look at how Newton handles Todoist tasks. Users can add all of the task information without leaving the…

            I'm the server manager. One person loaded this program and bandwidth went from 6 Mb/ month to 1 Gb per day. I do not see a full description on this site of what this program actually does. There are a few generalizations but nothing concrete on what this programs really does or how it does it.

            • Batch selection of folders in sidebar for moving & colouring

              You need to allow for batch selection of folders in the sidebar. No modifier key allows me to do this. You are forcing the user to have to move folders around 1 at a time if they require to do this. It also affects the colouring of folders. I have to manually select each folder & change the colour one at a time. This is incredibly time consuming & inefficient for users who colour code their side bar in detail with many colours.

              • Alias default based on recipient

                Short: it would be great to be able to save default alias to be chosen when writing to a particular recipient.

                Explanation: I use Airmail for three main accounts: work 1, work 2, personal. If I can send a personal mail with a work account (it won't harm) contacting a work 1's customer/colleague with work 2 alias could be awkward so a contacts based way to select optionally a default alias for a specific recipient would really help me in this. Also a forced "check before send" option that throws a popup asking to choose the alias before sending would…

                • Close original mail window on reply

                  There is an option in Outlook to close the original mail window when you hit reply. The new window (the reply email) is all you need to see at that point, since it includes the original email in its body. Therefore it is helpful to auto-close the original email window. I have put this under UX because it is about reducing the user's key/mouse strokes.

                  • Rules that continue to function beyond 24 hours and sync/apply across multiple devices.

                    I created several rules that would filter advertiser emails to automatically move from my inbox to a temporary archive. I also created a rule to empty out any emails in temp archive which are older than 60 days.

                    Things worked great until I launched Airmail on my iPad. Suddenly all my rules reverted so that every "moved message" was moved to the inbox. Even after I corrected this, none of the rules seem to be working or applying. It basically rendered all my rules useless.

                    Sure I can go back to creating rules in Gmail, but I'd prefer to create…

                    • Herald-like customizable notification popup

                      Herald (http://erikhinterbichler.com/apps/herald/ ) is a plugin for Mail.app that gives you a customizable notification popup. It's so much more powerful than standard banner popups, you can react very quickly to all sorts of emails right away. It would be great if you could add something like that to Airmail.

                      • BUG - double clicking in search bar makes the window full size, then disappear

                        Double clicking in search bar (e.g. to highlight the search text) makes the window full size (as if you've double clicked on the top bar), then the window disappears completely when you double click to make it back to the size you had before. The only way to get it back is to quit and open the program again.

                              It would be useful to add the "reply sender" as an auto-responder for specific rules. For instance we need it for our company if someone sends their CV to the Human Resources department, we need to inform them about the Data Protection Law

                                • Waiting for Answer

                                  You have an folder "answer awaited"

                                  When you send out an email there should be an checkbox "answer awaited". This lasts in a copy of the send email into the folder "answer awaited".

                                  If airmail receives new mails where the Subject starts with "Re:" oder "Aw:" etc. - Airmail checks if there is an email with the same subject in den "Answer awaited" folder. If so airmail moves this email to a folder called "answered" ... or something like that.

                                  This would be a really great feature!

                                  • 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.

                                    • Airmail is sending empty emails ALL THE TIME

                                      Everytime I respond to an email where someone is in CC, airmail just send the exact same email to those ppl and myself. super frustrating.

                                      • Rules - Import / Export & Run All from Rules screen right away.

                                        Fror there to be a way to import / export rules i.e. back them up. not just sync to iCloud.

                                        and there be a run all rules now from the rules window - as you can do in outlook!
