  1. Empty trash/spam shortcut

    There should be a button placed somewhere in the trash/spam folder that when pressed permanently deletes all the mails in the trash folder. Currently I have to select every mail in the trash and then perform batch delete action on them. It would be a great convenience. May be it can be put somewhere on the navigation bar of trash folder or in the sidebar menu.

        • Contacts appearing multiple times

          Hi,

          I have 3 email accounts : one Exchange, one Gmail and one Yahoo. The only one for which Boxer allows me to sync Contacts is the Exchange account. Nonetheless, all my Contacts are appearing 3 or 4 times in the list, each time with a different colour avatar. I haven't been able to find where this is coming from, and have had to deactivate the Contacts & Calendars feature, which is a real shame. Can you help please?

          Thanks,
          Ric

          • 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 support for multi-factor authentication

              To use boxer at work it needs to support mult-factor authentication. We use RSA at work, but Office 365 has its own method too.

              • 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.

                  • Display unread count within the app

                    I would like to be able to see how many unread emails I have while I am still in the app. Perhaps the unread count could be displayed somewhere at the top of the inbox or in a badge on the mail icon at the bottom.

                    • Let the user change the order of the accounts displayed in the sidebar and dashboard.

                      Right now, the order of the accounts is based on when they were created and not what is my priority. So I'd like to be able to change that order as needed.

                      My use case includes the need to manage a number of email accounts I'm given by clients and depending on workload, different accounts are of greater importance to me at different times.

                      You could then do the same with the dashboard list of accounts too.

                          • Still no support for SMTP servers that have no authentication

                            My ISP only allows me to use their SMTP server when I am connected to the Internet at home. As a result it requires no password authentication, as my ISP knows that I have connected securely through my router. Boxer does not allow me to set up an account with a SMTP server that doesn't require a password. I know it's possible as the native Apple Mail app allows me to do so. I complained about this oversight well over a year ago, and was assured that it was high on the developers list to fix. Now, several iterations later,…

                              I've been using mailbox for long time. I'm running ios 8 beta, with the new feature "battery usage". I discovered that boxer use 50% of the battery! I delete boxer.
                              What a difference!...

                              • 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--

                                • accept or decline calendar from non-default account

                                  I have three email accounts (Personal, Work, and Shared).

                                  Currently my personal email is the default account. I want to be able to accept a calendar invite from the non-default account.

                                  For example, a colleague sends me a business invite for a meeting, I want to be able to accept the invitation from my work, not my personal account.

                                    • Sync IMAP updates to server immediately

                                      When I move/read/delete emails in Boxer, the changes aren't pushed back to the IMAP server until I close Boxer and open it up again. Then they are pushed and sync across other devices. Very annoying as its an extra step when I read my email on multiple devices. I end up reading each message multiple times which goes against the quick inbox sorting idea of Boxer. Thanks!

                                      • Saving email to Evernote

                                        Emails saved to Evernote are missing critical information. There is no sender, recipient, email title or time and date. Only the body of the email is saved, which I don't think is sufficient.

                                        • Poor spam filters

                                          The spam filter seems very poor. I get about 40 spam emails a day' put them in the spam file but they still keep coming from the same people
