  1. I can not use the text functions while composing

    I am not able to adjust the size, bold, underline, italic or highlight text while in composer.
    These are simple functions that have not worked since I have downloaded this app. Although I have made it function for my work, I am looking for another option, as I would have thought for the price, these things would be included.
    Also, we often send the same message to the same people, and I would love to see an option to "re-send" a draft without it being removed from that section of emails. At this time we are copying and pasting the…

    • spelling mistake & plugin doesn't work

      The "Framework Downlaod and samples" is misspelt as shown in the quotes in this paragraph.

      Also the GPG plugin crashes the application when trying to compose a new message.

      • VIP unread notification

        To be more specific regarding the VIP list. In Apple Mail I depended on the VIP list to show me if there were new (unread) emails for any given contact with a number to the right. This is a must have feature. Seems like it was just perhaps overlooked. Presently, the VIP list is simply a filter showing only email from that contact, read or unread. Please add - fix this asap! I have moved to Airmail on all devices... (5). I am swamped with email from multiple accounts... I need to know at a glance if important email is…

        • 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.

          • Keyboard shortcuts for navigating a conversation

            I suggest some enhancements to keyboard shortcuts for navigating conversations. This would complement the 'n' and 'p' navigation options that already exist.

            ';' to expand all messages in the conversation

            ':' to collapse all messages in the conversation, except the most recent.

            'x' or '<space>' to toggle expansion of the currently selected message
            - same as clicking on the Subject line does

            I think Airmail is a great client & it has been a lifesaver since my employer switched to o365.

            Thanks!

            • Ability to add multiple google drive accounts to airmail

              I use 3 emails and often need to send attachments from G Drive accounts. But right now you can only login to one G Drive acct.

              • Local Import of two folders (in different trees) with same name should not merge contents

                I'm trying to transition from Apple Mail to Airmail. In Apple Mail I have some old email accounts "archived" as local "on my mac" folders; the top level folder is the name of the account (e.g. xyz.edu and abc.com), and each top-level folder has subfolders with the usual standard names (such as "inbox", "sent", etc...). When I import these into a "local" account in Airmail, airmail seems to flatten the tree and merge subfolders with the same name together.

                • Fix Spamsieve integration

                  Spamsieve is working fine; confirmed with Michael Tsai based on my logs from Spamsieve . Nonetheless, unless i leave Mail.app open along with Airmail, Airmail generally does not move emails correctly identified by Spamsieve as spam to my Junk folder. They're not even listed in my Airmail operations log. Looking at the Spamsieve forum, this had been reported quite some time ago, but clearly has not been fixed.

                  • Remove Adobe Flash objects in email

                    I think adobe flash should be removed from airmail as it is notorious for security vulnerabilities and I have never had legitimate emails use it. This can be a vector for attacks and it has the ability to track users.

                    An example of how the email might be tracked:

                    <object width="1" height="1">
                    <param name="movie" value="flash.swf"/>
                    <embed src="http://TRACKING_URL/"></embed>
                    </object>

                    Please remove flash.

                    Thanks.

                    PS. I would also consider blocking the video and audio tags:

                    <video autoplay="true" src="http://TRACKING_URL/"></video>

                    <video autoplay="true">
                    <source src="http://TRACKING_URL/&quot; type='video/mp4; codecs="avc1.4D401E, mp4a.40.2"'/>
                    </video>

                    <audio src="http://TRACKING_URL/&quot; preload="metadata" autoplay="autoplay"></audio>

                    • Bug: mail groups imported from Contacts include all emails associated with a contact rather than just the email associated with the gorup

                      Right now, when I import contact groups and try to use the imported group, Airmail populates all of the emails associated with contact; so a list of 10 contacts might have 30 email address if each contact has 3 addresses.

                      This makes contact list unusable.

                      • Make banners interactive too

                        Currently we're able to set actions for quick access from the OS X notifications, which is a neat little feature. However, those notifications always require a manual action to disappear. If we could set the same quick access-actions for banners, we could decide whether we want to take action or simply let the banner fade away.

                          • 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…

                            • Search fixed when unread flag is on

                              When you try to search when you have "Sort by Unread" on, the results are in backwards order or something. In whichever way the results appear, it does not seem purposeful. It would be helpful if it was same as "Sort By Date", except maybe showing the unread items first.

                                • 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.

                                    E.g. if I move a single mail in a converstaion in anew folder the single mail is also moved to the folder but remains in the conversation. The same applying a label to a single mail of a conversation, without affecting the remaining messages.

                                    • Make the MOVE search bar search all text in label

                                      When I press V to move the selected mail to a label, there is a search box that pops up, which is extremely helpful. But it only search if you type in the exact name in chronological order.

                                      If I had a label called "3233 Job Name" it would be great if I could type in "Job" and it would show up. Right now I have to type in "3233 Jo..." to see it.

                                      • Use "Move to [folder" again

                                        Have context-sensitive menu display "Move to [previous folder]". After you move a message or messages to a folder, remember that folder and display it when messages are selected. 9 times out of 10, that's what I want to do.
