  1. Post message replies in the same folder as the originating message

    When replying to a message stored in a folder the reply is put in the Sent folder. I'd like to see the reply stay in same folder as the original message to reduce the need to always move the sent message.

    • Color Formatting Lost / Changed When Highlighted

      I have never encountered this in any email program and it's a real menace.

      After I color format (it may be one color or more), often when I highlight any section of it ( to copy, cut, ...), part or all of the colors simply change.

      • HTML : Coordinated Highlighting Needed

        I use the HTML screen all the time.

        At present, if I'm looking for text content, I have to scroll through all the coding trying to find what I'm looking for.

        It takes forever and should be unnecessary.

        In other programs, when I highlight text content on the Non-HTML side, the corresponding code automatically highlights...

        ...and vice versa.

        • Delayed Send Option :: Needs Status pop-up

          Just started using this option - had to dig around to find out where they were hiding.

          I need to see them and know exactly how much time is left to cancel.

          How about an option for us to deploy a popup listing emails on delayed send along with a countdown of the seconds remaining for each.

          • Scroll to first unread message when opening in inverse order

            Currently when opening a conversation thread in inverse order (oldest at the top, newest at the bottom) the conversation opens at the first item, even if all of the items on screen are collapsed due to having been read.

            I would like it if when opening a conversation the thread scrolls down so that the first unread message, open, is displayed, with older messages being hidden above the open one.

            • Provide ability to edit subject for received email

              Some automated emails I receive have a generic subject which I usually change to something more meaningful before filing the email. I would like to be able to edit the subject before (or even after) archiving the email.

              • Increased Error Message Verbosity

                Error message verbosity is maddeningly uninformative.

                "Cannot send mail error test An error occurred while sending the message"

                Well now. That helps. An error? What could possibly be wrong? Checked the settings in the account for "Test IMAP" and "Test SMTP" which both indicate that the account is setup correctly yet cannot send or receive mail at all with this client. Verified that the mail server in question is functioning as intended as I am able to send and receive from an iOS device however cannot do so with this mail client.

                Mail client claims that it is configured correctly. …

                • White 'new email icon' in the menu bar for Yosemite 'black mode'

                  The default icon is already responsive to the normal and 'black mode' menu bar. Yet the 'new email icon' and the counter next to it stays black and is not readable while in 'black mode'.

                  • Plug-in instructions

                    I have the Todoist plugin, but it just runs a terminal window, and not much else when I click on it. Perhaps some small instruction on how to install the plug-in would be in order? :-)

                    • Second email list column

                      It would be great to have a second column similar to the inbox list to view contents from another folder.

                      For example: Having a second column to always see your todo items.

                      Currently I leave my Todo emails in my inbox so they are visible, but they quickly get buried by new email...

                      • Proper table support

                        Currently when copying a table from another application, say OpenOffice or Numbers, the table inserted into Airmail is an image, rather than text.

                        This make this difficult for the recipient, especially if they need to use the data in the table.

                        • Use <br/> instead of new <p> as line break in reply mode

                          When i reply to a mail the line spacing looks a bit weird.
                          I switched to HTML mode and discovered that a line break was done like this:
                          <p>one <p>
                          <p>two</p>

                          rather than:
                          <p>one <br/> two</p>

                            In Safari 8.0.2 if you go to an Airmail support page it always jumps back to support.airmail.com.

                            Please fix this.

                              I clicked an email address in the app but it started the Mail app instead of dealing with the address in Airmail.

                                  Currently I can use the Airmail menu only in case I choose to get notified about the new messages both in the dock and in the status bar. In case the unread mail count will be displated in the status bar only I can't access Airmail menu any more and I cannot switch to Airmail from any other app using command + tab.

                                    One of the few things I like about Outlook Mac is in the inbox there is a separator line to organize each day. So you have your messages from today with a separator bar underneath "Today", same for "yesterday", then "Tues", etc.

                                    • Shortcut Activate/ Deactivate polling of certain accounts

                                      I would like to have a possibility (i.e. shortcut, menu item) to easy activate/ deactivate email polling of certain accounts.

                                      I use Airmail for my private and business emails. In weekends I don't want the polling of my business emails, I don't want to see notifications.

                                      • Make the Draft Folder a bin for "templates" like it was before

                                        With Airmail 1.0 when sending a message, after editing, from the draft, didn't delete it from the folder. It was reusable. You could use your draft more than once. Very useful

                                        • View calendar invites "new time proposed"

                                          When someone responds to your invite with a "new time proposed", currently you cannot see what is the new time.

                                          I want to be able to see the full response and the new time proposed by the attendee.
