Airmail Mac 3.x

How can we improve Airmail?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. automate attachment of files

    so that when I type "...CV is attached..." or "...Quote is Attached..." the file I have nominated as the latest CV quote etc (perhaps via Text expander?) is attached.

    Please note CV's, quotes, newsletters etc. may well have multiple distinctive names - so inside our outside Airmail I want to link the current "CV" to the file I want to use that day when I say CV etc

    • Embed Attachments in Markdown/HTML Emails

      When I'm composing Markdown/HTML emails in Airmail, it would be nice if I could embed attachments (esp. images) in the message using CIDs (see http://stackoverflow.com/a/21000242).

      E.g., something like this:

      1. Attach a file named "screenshot.jpg" to an email.
      2. Reference the file in my message text:
      - Markdown: `![...](cid:screenshot.jpg)`
      - HTML: `<img src="cid:screenshot.jpg" alt="...">`

      Most other email clients that I've used have this feature; it would be awesome if Airmail incorporated it as well!

      • Delete Archive/Trash per Account

        I would love the ability to select whether the delete button archives the message or trashes the message on an individual account basis.

              • attachments -- double click should open folders, not attach them

                Behaviour when selecting attachments should mimic Finder in Yosemite. Double click expands folders in Finder, but when you have the dialog box for selecting attachments open and double click on a folder, Airmail attaches the whole folder (freezing and taking a long time to zip it up if it is large) rather than opening the folder. Behaviour should be that you click the folder and then click Select if you want to attach a whole folder, and that when you double click you open the folder so you can select a file within it.

                • Translate email with one click (As Gmails does)

                  When I receive an email in another language in Gmail it shows at the top a button "Translate this message" to translate it with one click. This would be a great addition for Airmail.

                      • Fast setup to previous recipients list when first switching to Airmail

                        One of the biggest pain points that I had when switching to Airmail was that I didn't have access to my "old" previous recipients.

                        Here's what I mean. Suppose that two years ago I sent an email to "John Smith", which is still saved in my "Sent" folder. On my old email client, I can type "john" in the To: field of a new email, and it will suggest "John Smith"'s email. But on Airmail, even if I download the whole "Sent" folder, I don't get the suggestion of John Smith for "John".

                        However, once I send "John Smith" and…

                        • Redirect feature should override composer type for the account

                          Redirect should keep the original e-mail intact.

                          When redirecting an email in HTML using the composer type in Plain Text, the email gets converted to plain text.

                          • Always display the email address of the sender in the list and message views.

                            For reasons I'm struggling to articulate I find it aggravating to see "John" instead of "John Doe <john.doe@gmail.com>" in the list and message views. I want to see the email address of the sender, always.

                              Would be very good to have the option to turn off the notification of one specify account when needed. For example, you work remotely from the rest of your team and you get a lot of messages when you are doing your personal stuff. You still want to receive your personal emails but not the work ones.

                              • Allow option to hide accounts strip

                                For me, the "Accounts Strip" (the accounts selector on the far left of the sidebar) takes up a lot of screen real estate for minimal added value - especially since each of the accounts are listed below "Trash" in the left sidebar and can be accessed that way. It seems like if you made this option available, you might have to add a way of toggling it or other method to allow you to go back to the "All Mail" unified inbox, but perhaps not.

                                I like to keep things as minimal as possible on my laptop to make best…

                                    It would be great if I could copy paste a formatting spreadsheet at Airmail. Currently, when I have to do this, I have to copy from excel, paste in Word (or another text editor) and then paste in Airmail.

                                    • (Colored) Icons for Todo, Notice & Done in sidebar

                                      I am using sidebar in shrink mode (so I can only see the icons) and I am missing my often used folders as Todo, Notice or Done. It would be great to have a possibility to choose which folders will be visible in sidebar and also to change their order. Even better to also select their colors (i.e. Done - green, Todo - yellow ...).

                                          I like the idea behind using FTP-upload (or dropbox etc).
                                          But since the recipient needs to download via ftp and also have password it's not that useful.

                                          Wouldn't it be great if I could set the "baseurl" in settings so I could choose between having it the way it is or set a http path instead so that my recipients can download the attachment in browser?
