  1. 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.

    • 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

      • Force touch 3D in email preview

        It would be great if I can use force touch 3D to preview the email like the native iOS email

          • 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.

            • Month view compressed

              If you look at the month view on the original calendar app with iOS, it can list 6 things on each day....boxer can do 4. The month view is primarily an "at a glance" view and would be nice to see more at a glance.

                • 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!

                    • IMAP Sent Mail Must Synchronize to the IMAP Server

                      It would be great if sent mail on IMAP accounts synchronized up to the parent IMAP server account sent folder, so that we could see the mail on other email clients on other devices.

                      • 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--

                        • Automatically select the send from email account based on the account where the contact is stored

                          Most of us use multiple email accounts and store our contacts in the appropriate account's address book. When I start a new email I would like Boxer to not send it from the "default" email account but instead from the account that holds that contact. The default account should kick in only if the contact exists in both or if it is a manually typed addressed that doesn't exist as a contact in any address book.

                          • Custom flags

                            Imap servers supports currently-defined system flags (http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc3501#section-2.3.2) and often custom flags/keywords (http://deflexion.com/2006/05/server-side-message-labels). Also Desktop mail clients like Thunderbird or MailMate can read custom flags.

                            Is it possible or even planned to implement such a custom flags-„managment“ in Boxer?

                            • Pull avatar from domain apple icon

                              Many domains have an apple icon defined on there website index page. Other email programs I use pull the icon for the avatar when others aren't available. This is a much better solution that your database of avatars for companies as there are many smaller companies not in your database.

                              • Will Boxer support sharing on ios8?

                                Will Boxer support sharing extensions on ios8? There has been a lot of support for Omnifocus integration, etc and this would enable it immediately and elegantly. I'd certainly buy the app straight away if this were in place.

                                  • 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.

                                    • Decoy password for specific accounts

                                      f you could add in the future an option to enter a decoy password to show only a specific accounts it would be simply the BEST!!!
                                      that way we can simply choose which accounts will show with the real password and which accounts with the decoy password.

                                      • 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.

                                        • Allow for attaching pages numbers and Keynote documents. Document picker does not allow this.

                                          Selecting attachments does not allow attaching anything except textedit docs. Not sure why
