  1. VIP Notifications

    When I get an email from my vice president, I want/need to know about it right away. On the other hand, I do not want to know when Joe Schmo sends me an email. One thing the default iPhone mail app got right was the ability to have notifications for a subset of contacts.

    I love Boxer, but this is keeping me from using it as my sole iPhone mail app.

      After discussing this heavily internally, we have decided to defer the VIP notifications for the moment. This capability requires quite a bit of time and resources to do it correctly, and we are not yet prepared to tackle it. We will re-open this one and consider it again in the future. Thanks for your feedback on it!

    • "Boxer" and "Archive" folder keeps creating in my IMAP account

      Hi. As I do not use archive functionality, it is getting really cumbersome when I log in via Outlook to my IMAP account to discover that "archive" and "boxer" folders being created after accessing email via boxer app. Can you fix this issue please?

      • Modify reply text formatting - font, size, color

        I use Boxer in tandem with my Outlook desktop. When I send an email from Boxer and look at it from my desktop my font defaults to Times New Roman (or a Serif variant), I'd love to be able to change the font to something else. Obviously its for HTML emails only.

        • Not working realtime notifications

          This mail client have all options what I need. But I can't believe how can this application not working realtime notifications? I already bought pro version. Now what can I do? I paid money but can't get full service, where so many free apps have all options?

          • Folder badges should indicate only *unread* messages

            Currently, folder badges display counts of the total number of messages in a given folder/label.

            For me this is distracting, as a non-zero number implies that there is still work to be done in that folder/label. Would yo consider an option to have badges indicate *unread* messages only? Thank you.

            • From & Subject line sizing/bold option

              It would be nice to be able to control which line was bigger and bolder - subject line or from line - toggling between subject line and from line would be awesome.

              • Inbox Zero Empty Inbox Rewards

                I love that Boxer has daily quotes as a small reward for getting to inbox zero. It would also be cool if for paid users if they had access to coupons or discount codes if they opted in when they hit inbox zero for so many days.

                • Turning off the Todo feature

                  I don't use the advanced features at all, I have no need for them and I would like to avoid the boxer folder creation too. It's invasive and pollute all the non boxer mails clients I use on desktop. :/ Thoughts?

                      • "Reply all" and "forward"

                        I would like these options available with one click, and not hidden in the little menu on the side or only at the bottom of the message.
                        Also,
                        The clicking on the side menu can be tricky. Many times I end up collapsing my message.

                                Thanks for your feedback! While we can see how this might be the case for some, the vast majority of Boxer users enjoy the swipes and their customization ability. We will defer on this request for now, but leave it open in case we get a lot of demand for this option.

                                As someone who uses filters to have new email sent to specific label folders, I need a way to see new/unread message counts per label, As it stands currently, these emails are invisible and I have to go into each label folder to see if there is anything new.

                                  Currently, the badge app icon and sound notifications only seem to apply to the inbox. Is it possible for the icon and sounds to apply to subfolders we choose?

                                  Essentially, please mimic iOS Mail features for subfolder push and notifications.

                                    • Sanebox quick add

                                      I have activated sanebox. Would be nice to have quick actions to support moving emails to folders directly vs moving to the folder.

                                      • Increase the Filtering Options

                                        Like in exchange to provide an option to filter messages in one of the folders:
                                        example: to filter all incoming messages with attachments.
                                        to filter all incoming messages for a given period: today, current week, current month.

                                            This is something that we have put thought into previously, but have not implemented.

                                            It may not be possible to have the Gmail labels show up as the same color they currently are in your Gmail web account.

                                            Would this be an issue for you, or does the matching of colors with the server color not make that much difference?

                                            Thanks guys!
