  1. Mail to keep offline - selectable timeframe

    It would be good to select a timeframe for e-mails to keep on your device. For example, I'm over 1GB used space for the iOS app because all my mail is kept offline. If I could choose to keep offline only e-mails from the last X months (and the older ones could be deleted from my device, but still searchable when online) it would be perfect.

    Basically the same as you can do with Outlook, select to keep offline mail from 1/3/6/12/24 months or all e-mails.

      We have now implemented the ability to clear the cache (option is in settings), which will remove old emails and other items from memory that are no longer needed.

    • Sanebox notification

      Choose wether or not to receive a notification if a mail has been filtered by sanebox (ie : I don't want to be notified if I receive a spam email that goes directly into the sanebox folder)

          Unfortunately, after looking into this, custom sounds set by the user is allowed by Apple. We do plan to add in even more sound options in the future, but I’m afraid we’ll need to decline this one for now until Apple changes their policies and allows us to include this.

          • No Passcode when unlock code is set

            My Exchange Account requires a passcode so Boxer will automatically ask for one when opened. I already have my phone set to use a unlock code to unlock it. Why do I have to use a passcode again? The iPhone mail app recognizes the fact that a unlock code is set on the phone and does not require another passcode to open Exchange mail accounts.

              Unfortunately, there is no way for Boxer to bypass the request from the Exchange server to force a passcode when opening the app. Boxer is a third-party application (the default email app is not considered to be so), and it would violate our terms with Microsoft to force a bypass of the pin code. We’d love to be able to make this an option, but I’m afraid it just isn’t possible. :(

            • Exchange 2003 Server support

              Not every company has the latest and greatest. Please add 2003 server support.

                Thanks for your feedback! Unfortunately, Microsoft no longer supports Exchange version 2003, which makes it extremely difficult for us to support this version. 2007 and later are supported however, and will continue to be supported.

                    With Apple’s recent announcement about allowing support for 3rd party keyboard apps with iOS8, we have decided to wait on this integration and use our resources towards other new features that will not be provided by the iOS update. Thanks for the suggestion, and please keep your feedback coming!

                      We have added in a “back to Boxer” button so that when a link opens up in Chrome, you can easily move back to Boxer.

                      After much discussion, we have decided to not build a built-in browser for now. We may revisit this again later on.

                    • IMAP Fetching

                      I use iPad and iPad Email client has same issue. In IMAP Gmail Accounts when we go on say Send Email it refreshes folders and starts to fetch headers and then emails. Is it not possible to refresh all folders periodically with full email content so that we can quickly view and deal with emails. Often on slower networks, there is time wasted as first if we click Sent Mail folder it fetches mail headers and then fetches emails. If we click on email, we have to wait till it fetches email. Same issue I faced in iPad default email…

                        Thanks for the suggestion! At the moment, we have no way to do this that wouldn’t slow down the app significantly. We will likely explore different ways to do this later on, but have no immediate plans to work on this. Thanks for your active interest, and please keep the suggestions coming!

                      • Change smtp for GMail, etc.

                        At the moment it's not possible to change the outgoing server credentials for Gmail-Accounts.
                        This should be possible.

                        • When receiving a notification that there is a new email, I'd like the name of the email account to be the Header rather than "Boxer"

                          When Boxer shows a notification alert in the iPhone notification system, it is labeled as a message from the "Boxer" account rather than one of the names the user assigns to his/her email accounts (like "Work" or "Yahoo"). Therefore one can't tell for example if it is a work email from the notification.

                            Unfortunately, this is not a possibility with the current version of iOS. Apple requires this to reflect the name of the application that generated the notification.

                          • Menu swipe gesture

                            It would be cool, if the default iOS left (corner) to right gesture open the menu.
                            It is much easier and user friendly than touch the menu button every time (on the upper-left corner) when I want to open and close it.

                                    • Webdav integration for attachments

                                      Webdav integration for attachments would allow me to add attachments directly from my Synology NAS or from my Zimbra briefcase.

                                      There are many more systems out there supporting Webdav, so this would be a very useful generic connector.

                                        • Sync favorite users between IOS address book and Boxer

                                          If you mark a favorite in IOS address book, It should become favorite in boxer and VV.
