    Voting for this – but I think more needs to be said: The v shortcut can be very useful, but it suffers some serious shortcomings for me at least.

    To explain further, I must first state that I am not a gmail user; I get my mail from an exchange server, though I suspect an IMAP user would see the same behaviour.

    Second, I have a large number of mail folders hierachically organized. Mail from previous years are found in folders inside y2014, y2013, and so forth.

    As a result, I have many folders named the same. When filing away a message, if I type v and then start typing the name of a folder, the selected folder in the popup menu will change accordingly. However, which folder is selected seems to be sort of random! In the beginning, I believe it always selected the first folder with a matching name. This was often what I wanted, but more importantly, it was predictable. But lately, this has changed. But the behaviour seems relatively stable. Example: I have a folder named “com/publishers”. Early on, typing v and “pub” would select the first folder in the list with that name, which is what I wanted. But lately, it has started selecting “y2014/com/publishers” instead. My current workaround is to type the name of a nearby folder, then navgating to the folder I want using the arrow keys. This saves me from incessantly reaching for the trackpad, but it is very distracting.

    In summary, the behaviour of the v shortcut needs to be predictable as well as aiding navigation in the popup list.

    (Perhaps I should have added my own suggestion instead of voting for this and adding this long explanation? Oh well.)

    Just curious about this; couldn't this be done via the preview feature? This is already built in to Airmail. If you select the attachment and hit the space bar, maybe it would play the attachment for you? (I haven't got a handy email to test it with, so I don't know if it would work. But it seems it should.)
