  1. 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>

          • 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. …

            • Safari doesn't stay on selected Airmail Page

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

              Please fix this.

              • Better deal with all email addresses with the app itself

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

                • Menu should be visible all the time

                  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.

                    • Date Separator in Inbox

                      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

                              This is not an idea. It is a problem.

                              • Default send and archive

                                One of the things I loved about Sparrow was the ability to make the Command-Enter shortcut Send and Archive by default rather than just send. When i'm working through a big pile of emails with the keyboard, it's nice to be able to send and archive easily with the remembered keystroke rather than to have to do something extra to get the email out of my inbox.

                                    I wonder if it has occurred to anyone to add support for Emoji or even basic emoticons? Personally I don't use them very much but was a little surprised when I could not use them in Airmail. They are occasionally appropriate however

                                    • Message content doesn't always have the proper right hand margin.

                                      The text for some of my messages goes right to the edge of the Airmail window with no margin. That means, when I'm fullscreen, the text goes right to the edge of my screen.

                                      See attached screenshot.

                                        I have several email accounts. When I added them, they appear in the accounts list on the lower left side in some unknown random order. I have 1 main account, and I would like that to be the top one, but I cannot find a way to do that. I also have other accounts that are related to a specific purpose, and I would like those to be listed together. Please make them so the user can change the display order in order to make some sense.

                                          To begin with I love this app but the preview bar does not highlight the message you are viewing. There is a slight change but it is not easy to see which one you have open. I find this makes it very difficult to decide which message is the next in the list without comparing the headings.
                                          Please provide clear colour difference between open/selected message and the rest of the list.
