    I want to customize the header to add icons such as delete, forward, print, etc. The only icon shown now is new message and reply.

    For example, in Safari you can customize the header to show Home, print, etc.

    • Can't receive email from iCloud account anymore

      Since the 14th of june, my iCloud email stopped working on my iPhone and Mac under Airmail. They do work with Mail so it's definitely a problem coming from Airmail.
      Anyone has the same problem ? need to change a port ? a setting ?

      Thanks a lot

      • sorting oldest to newest in conversation mode does not work

        Sorting from oldest to newest in conversation mode does not work. Updated conversations don't sort back to the right position in the list.

        • notify when sync fails

          My iCloud email who had been working correctly for months suddenly stopped syncing more than a week ago. Nothing in the interface warned me about it. Now on account preferences the imap and smtp test fails. don't know if this is an airmail or iCloud issue but airmail should have warned me. instead I didn't notice and i missed important emails in the meanwhile (and btw, i checked the settings and cannot manage to make it work again, always getting Unable to authenticate with the current session's credentials. while it used to work)

          also this is not the first issue…

          • Allow deletion of most recent message in conversation

            You should be able to delete the first message in a conversation without deleting the whole conversation.

            • Up-to-date Views For Folders

              The counter does refresh for folders, but the folder view doesn't. Currently, you have to select another folder and then come back to it in order to see up-to-date content in the folder. This is a basic functionality that is sorely missed. Preferences/Accounts allows you to set Inbox refresh but not folders refresh time. It appears that it was an option at some point but removed? (see screenshot). I moved from Mac Mail to Airmail due to instability issues, but this is making me want to go back to Mail or find another option altogether.

              • Warn when selecting "Save Settings on iCloud" if iCloud Drive is disabled

                "Save Settings on iCloud" does nothing if iCloud Drive is disabled. There should be a message telling you to enable iCloud Drive when you check this box.

                • Auto update "To Read" area

                  I would LOVE to see the "To Read" section refresh just like the regular email. Currently, if I get any new mail while I'm in the "To Read" area, I can't see it unless I leave the area and come back, or go to the inbox it's in or All Inboxes. I would use the "To Read" area as my primary view for Airmail, actually, except I would never know I've got new emails if that's all I ever stay in

                  • A better simpler set up as i can get nothing to work

                    Perhaps I ama simpleton, but no import or account will allow itself to be entered, every password fails or account is unrecognised, iCloud or exchange, therefore this product is useless to me. I do not want an app on my mac I am fighting with. So I look for simple explanations but they seem to be much more for iOS that for mac and the explanation i want is just not, there. Id love a better app than apple mail, but simplicity and set up fail for you guys

                        • Make Message Browsing Snappier

                          The delay between clicking a Message in List view and it being displayed is too long (> 100 ms) and makes the overall message browsing experience feel very sluggish. I'd like Messages to render instantly, possibly in a preview mode or as plain text. And I'd also like the keyboard based navigation of messages to not be delayed by the rendering of the message view. Ideally browsing is as snappy as navigating the Filesystem in Finder and Quicklook previews.

                          • BUG: Folders are left randomly

                            I have rules moving emails in various folders on my email account. When searching one of these folders, Airmail snaps back to my inbox folder after some time. This can happen immediately or after a few moments. With this bug, it is impossible to read longer mails in a folder or even scroll through mails in a folder since you will be randomly snapped back into the main inbox. I made a short screencast to demonstrate the issue: http://sharedby.ralphcibis.de/QAtG4/5oAtYBX9

                            Same happens on my colleagues Mac. Both running on Sierra.

                            • Switch accounts automatically based on time of day

                              I have two accounts on Airmail; one work and one personal. Out of office hours, say between 7pm and 8.30am, I do not want to see work emails in an effort to balance work/ life.

                              I appreciate I can already do this manually however I'll typically catch a glimpse of a work email, and that's enough to start thinking about work again. Airmail, please could you champion work/life balance and apply this feature?

                                    • Email badge for a period of time

                                      It'd be great to be able to have the "new mail" badge for the dock/menubar icon reflect the new mail in a given period, rather than just "all" new mail.

                                      For example, have the badge just display the new emails in the last 1, 3 or 7 days.

                                        Please add the ability to enable sounds for new mail messages only!

                                        I want to hear when a new message arrives, but in doing so, I don't want to have to hear all the other sounds in the app, which are extraneous, in my opinion.

                                          When you are reading a long email that you have to scroll to read, e.g. newsletters, if you select a different email to read and then select another email you'd opened previously, the scroll position is reset to the top of the message. It would be really helpful to preserve the scroll position for a given message (at least until it has been archived/deleted) so you could return to it later and resume reading where you left off.
