  1. Option to include forwarded messages in conversation thread

    When forwarding a message, the forwarded mail is not included in the conversation thread (unless the option "Group by Subject" is activated, which is unhandy as it simply lumps everything together which has the same subject - not helpful when there are multiple conversation with the same subject.

    Hence an option would be desirable to allow a user to choose whether forwarded messages should be included in the conversation from which they have been forwarded or not.

      • VIM shortcut integration to triple speed of email editing

        I have been searching for a long time for an email client with support for VIM (see http://www.vim.org/). This is a commonly used editing tool on Linux machines - installed on every Linux machine, always available for usage. It significantly speeds up text editing for someone familiar with VIM shortcuts.

        For software developers, they are frequently switching between applications like their software development tools and email applications. Would LOVE it for Airmail to pick up VIM support, and there are many tools / code already written to help make that a possibility.

        Email composition and editing would become SO…

        • Automatic reply in Airmail

          Hello,
          will be absolutely perfect if you add automatic reply to Airmail with scheduling. For example, from 0:00 - 08:00 will be auto reply turned on.

          Thank you

            Please add support of tabs in Mac Sierra. It would be great to be able to open different messages in tabs.

            • Implement Mail Drop

              Let the user define a Threshold for the Attachment Size. If the Attachments exceed that size, they are send via Mail Drop (or Drop Box). Today it is possible to use Dropbox, but it is manual work (copying the Attachments to the Dropbox Folder, then manually select them via the Dropbox Icon). Instead, Airmail could copy large Attachments to a predefined Dropbox-Folder and just send the link. Totally transparent to the user. The user experience with Mail Drop in OSX Mail is what I would like to see.

              • include folders of all accounts in move to

                Hello!

                I use several email accounts for different purposes. Some people tend to send me private mails to my business address. It would be great if it would be possible to directly move these emails to the correct folder in my private account. I know this is possible by selecting Folders > Transfer to Account > private account > devnull, but this is really time consuming compared to pressing 'V' and typing 'dev' ...
                Maybe this trans account folder search could only be activated if 'All Accounts' is selected in the left pane.

                • Improve email header layout in printed message

                  The email header and general layout of a printed email message needs typing up. The header does not contain, on the printed message, information similar to OUTLOOK or MAIL.The information is somewhat scant and it's microscopic.

                  Secondly, the printed email on an A4 page does not format neatly. The printing is virtually edge-to-edge. Again, look at OUTLOOK and MAIL for a good layout and format of a printed email message. Unfortunately, the print preferences in MacOS don't allow you to change the layout of the message.

                  • Contact Profile/Summary Sidebar

                    It would be great if I could have the option to open up a sidebar that is dedicated to a contact. So when opening an email from "Brandon", his icon would pop up along with a history of all the emails we have exchanged, and the attachments that were sent.

                    This concept is similar to iPhone's messages app, where you can see all the photos sent. It's also a feature on Polymail. I don't like Polymail, I love Airmail. But that feature is prettyyyyy great.

                    • Embedded images sometimes do not show

                      I am finding that quite often, embedded images simply do not show up. Sometimes there is a placeholder for the images (a big empty space) and hovering over it shows that there is an image present (in the status), but the image does not show.... please fix.

                            • Syncing with MAC Contacts

                              Is there a way to auto sync the Contacts when new contacts or groups are added? I nearly dumped Airmail, not realizing I could sync the contacts manually. Now I do the syncing manually each time I add new stuff to Contacts... a real inconvenience.

                                With delayed sending enabled, outgoing messages sit in Drafts during the delay. Allow me to right-click on one of these and choose "Send Immediately" to zero out the delay. There are plenty of messages that I know I want to send right away, but no way to expedite them without turning off the feature entirely.

                                • Unread count in nested subfolder

                                  I have message filters (server side) that move messages from certain senders to subfolders automatically. I can see the unread count when the subfolders are directly visible (parent folder is expanded) but when the parent folder is collapsed it would be nice for the collapsed folder to show the unread count for itself and all child folders contained within. Otherwise I have to keep expanding the parent folders to check to see if any child folders contain new messages.

                                  • Sync notifications across all devices

                                    This already exists in the iOS wishlist as well, but we need the notifications/badge counts to sync across all devices. If I get a notification on my Mac and delete an email, I shouldn't pickup my iPhone 5 minutes later and still see this already addressed notification on my lock screen or the badge count still reflecting an already deleted email. If it's been read on one device or deleted, it should push this to the other devices and reflect the change. I know this capability exists, other apps do it. Please get this added!

                                    • Forgotten Attachment Option

                                      It would be great to have a User selectable option that if I say "attach, attachment, attached, included, etc." in my email that the program will give me a warning if I hit send and there is no attachment.

                                      There are plugins for Outlook and Gmail that do this, and it's a GREAT feature to have. Pain when you forget to attach something.

                                      • Save drafts to respective mail boxes

                                        Saving a draft is currently being done locally.

                                        Saving a draft to the original mailbox would enable the email to get finished later, on another device and/or client.

                                        This also reduces the need for Airmail to hold on to those drafts.

                                        • Import rules from Apple Mail

                                          When switching from Apple Mail to Airmail, it is a huge project to manually recreate years' worth of accumulated Mail rules within Airmail.

                                          It would be great to be able to import the existing SyncedRules.plist file into Airmail. Even if the rules required further customization from there to accommodate Airmail's different rules format and options, that would streamline things greatly!
