  1. Ability to copy Boxer calendar entries to native iOS calendar

    There is different posts like this also marked as COMPLETE, but I do not find this feature in Boxer.
    I would like to be able to see my Boxer calendar events also in the native iOS calendar. This way I can use iOS built-in features to navigate to the location, share the location, etc.
    Also Apple Watch would be able to pickup the events then.

    The integration should work like CallerID, so that events are copied to the native calendar but removed, if Boxer is removed.

    • Inbox update message

      It would be helpful to have a message (like in iOS Mail app) that says when my inbox was last updated. When I login to my email inbox, there is no spinning wheel or other hourglass to tell me that the app is actually updating my inbox. I get lots of email. Sometimes I have to wait a minute or two before the new ones show up. It would be nice to have that email update status (i.e., 4 hours ago, 2 minutes ago, updating now....).

      • Ability to show Boxer contacts in native iOS contacts tab.

        I need to be able to see the email user's contact list int he local contacts to provide a seamless browsing experience for the user if they use the contacts button but have added phone numbers via outlook on their computer. Without this, if a user adds a contact from outlook to their contact list it will only be visible to them in the boxer app, not the contacts list on their phone.

        • We need Multi Factor Authentication

          Enable Multi Factor Authentication. Right now I think only the Outlook app for IOS/Android supports this and using app passwords is a nightmare.

              • Add importance & sensitivity flags to actions

                Corporate users and especially management need to flag messages with "sensitivity" and "importance" when sending e-mail from boxer to Exchange / outlook recipients.

                "sensitivity":

                Personal: message is marked as such, but remain accessible by delegates. Recipient can forward, reply and edit original content and change sensitivity.

                Private: delegates or anyone given permission to access the owner inbox folder cannot see private message. Recipients can only reply, forward but cannot edit original content nor change sensitivity .
                On calendar, delegates cannot see Private meeting,appointmemts, or event details. Calendar will show time as unavailable.

                Confidential: message is marked as such, but remain…

                • Ability to Delete From Notification Center

                  We can already mark as read in the Notification Center. And we can archive from the Notification Center too. It would be great to have an option to delete from the Notification Center. Maybe a setting in the app that allows us choose whether to archive or delete.

                      • Dark and light themes

                        Allow the choice of dark and light themes. The default theme of dark text on a white background is jarring when opening the app at night time in a dark room.

                        Night and day modes would be awesome.

                          • Fix mailto: links, a basic URL capability

                            Emails and web pages use mailto: links as a tapable item that open a new email. This doesn't work in Boxer anymore (iOS Boxer 6.x)

                            The mailto: links work in Apple Mail on iOS, Outlook on iOS... even on IE6. It's a basic URL href format that is well understood and widely implemented elsewhere.

                            How about getting it right in Boxer?

                            It'd be great if this worked in Boxer--

                                I'd like to be able to tab on any attached file and Boxer offers options to open or save it. The Save As target should be a selection of Dropbox, Google Drive or a local target on the iPhone.

                                  • Make a widget for iOS 8

                                    iOS 8 was released on 2 June, and allows 3rd party developers to make widgets for Notification Centre. You should make one that shows your whole inbox, but in the NC, not the app. You can click a message to immediately respond, or anything like that.

                                    The picture shows the announcing of widgets today.

                                    • Increase Viewing Font Size

                                      Would like the ability to control the font size for viewing messages (beyond the pinching zoom method).

                                      • Remove extra line spacing added before signature

                                        In my Boxer settings, my signature is one line long and has no line spaces before it. When I compose an email, it properly shows the signature directly after the email I'm writing. However, when I view sent messages, Boxer seems to add 2-3 line spaces before the signature. Sent emails should have the same line spacing shown in the composer. Please remove the extra line spacing added before the signature.

                                        • Password change on server should trigger dialog

                                          My password changed on the IMAP side. Currently, boxer doesn't prompt the user for a new password, but rather stops functioning.
                                          As a side effect, my account on the server got locked out because of too many attempts.
