  1. Get rid of garbage tags and attributes in HTML content

    I'm typically composing emails in a simple, concise way. I don't use color or other fancy stuff.

    But when I see people reply to my emails, part of the quoted email from me is always blue. Why? Because Airmail inserts unneeded and erroneous HTML tags/attributes in the outgoing email.

    The problem is exacerbated when I'm posting to some helpdesk application, which then tries to convert HTML to some wiki-like markup and that gives a lot of garbage now on the user level.

    Hope this gets addressed.

    Thanks!
    Igor

    • Add quick search 'spotlight-like' window to go to a folder quickly from keyboard

      I know you can search in a window here :

      https://i.imgur.com/17nXR8F.png

      However that requires you to use the mouse to then pick the folder from results. I wish you could make a search for a folder from a spotlight like window like this one :

      https://i.imgur.com/i18tjOy.png

      And then quickly jump between folders with it. That would save me a lot, lot of time. Thank you so much if you do consider adding this.

      • Make the default search scope global instead of the current folder.

        When I focus the search box, it defaults to label: inbox. Please provide an option to disable this so that the default search scope is global.

        Like many people, I keep inbox zero so I never actually want to search my inbox. This is something the native Mail.app gets right.

          • Swap archive message for move to folder button

            When viewing in message viewer I would like to replace the archive button with move to folder as I don't use the archive function, but I do store all my messages in different folders.

            • Clean up conversations view in Message Detail panel

              Visually separate replies from a long thread within their own box with Sender and basic header information at the top of the box the way Apple Mail displays conversations, as well as truncating each reply so that each box does not include all the quoted text from all previous replies. This is the way Gmail allows expansion of a threaded conversation to only view the last senders reply, and by clicking further all the quoted text can be expanded as well. This makes it much easier to view the entire conversation. The heading of each box with Sender, timestamp, etc.…

              • Automatically add recipient when their name is mentioned in the body with "@"

                Countless hours have been lost waiting for a response from someone I forget to add to an email chain. I usually mention people with "@" appended before their name and it will be super useful to have Airmail automatically add the person's name to the recipients (To: field) once they have been mentioned in the body and have their "@name" highlighted within the body.

                  An action to Mute by thread (email subject) - those pesky email chains that always seem to have everybody hitting 'reply all' and clogging up your inbox.

                      • send mail and postpone conversation

                        when I send a reply and postpone conversation immediately it pops up in my inbox and postpone is canceled. It's because mail is sent after postponing and due to new activity in the conversation postpone does not occur. It would be great to have a new button to send mail immediately and postpone occurs succesfully

                          • Add office365 MFA authentication

                            Please add authentication for Office365 using Microsofts ADAL SDK (https://github.com/AzureAD/azure-activedirectory-library-for-objc. This would enable AirMail usage for accounts managed by draconian IT departments that don't allow app passwords while having MFA enabled. Thanks!

                              When I compose a new email and start typing an address or a person name while the airmail app is in fullscreen mode, autocompletion of email addresses from my contacts doesn't work. If I exit fullscreen mode, everything works as expected.

                                Could you integrate the Virtru SDK so it works with Airmail? I need encrypted email!!

                                I'm a long time Airmail user. I'm a physician. At home, I use my iMac. But while at work, I use my Android and a web browser to check email. Virtru is an encryption service that makes it quite easy to encrypt outgoing email. It integrates directly with Gmail (via a browser extension for Chrome and Firefox), has its own apps for Android and Apple, as well as an Outlook plugin.

                                But it does not have Mac support (besides the iOS app). So I end…

                                  • Create a specific time slot where the app will be working or not

                                    We all know the stress of enjoying the weekend but mail is still sent to your iphone. Very annoying sometimes. One still needs the phone for other things but one is not wanting to see mail.

                                    To create less stress during the evening or during the weekend I would welcome a preference where one could change the "app being online" I would call it Airtime :-)
                                    Example:
                                    App online and working: Mo,Tue, Wed, Thurs, Fr 08AM-17PM
                                    App offline and not working: Mo-Fr 17PM-08AM
                                    App offline: Weekends

                                    App offline: when a certain speed is reached (car driving) and one can either…

                                    • Bug Report: Blank user

                                      I am using Airmail Version 3.3.2 (442) and I have a user listed in my Accounts list that I cannot get rid of. I will not let me change anything, I cannot delete it and when I disable it it it reenabled when I start the app again. So, how do I delete this annoying corrupt user? Thanks

                                      • Only group emails when part of a thread

                                        I like that Airmail groups emails as conversations but IMO the feature needs more options.

                                        Right now I'm getting emails that aren't true conversations grouped together, e.g. where I get two emails with the same subject line. These emails don't follow on from one another and both require a separate response, but since Airmail groups them and automatically expands the top email, the others are effectively hidden and easy to miss.

                                        Can we have an option to only group emails where there is a genuine thread of conversation between two people, rather than grouping by subject line? It must be…

                                        • Swipe Sensitivity is too low?

                                          Comparing to the swipe sensitivity of Spark, Airmail is pretty terrible. I can swipe just a little bit to get Spark to react, however, I had to swipe a long distance on my track pad to get Airmail to start recognizing my swipe. Deleting the email by swiping is really really awkward because of this. I am seeing a lot of similar feedbacks below, but it seems like Airmail team just don't care about this horrible user experience? Please fix this!
