        Probably the best e-mail client available except without push support (on all types of e-mail account) it's a complete non-starter & worthless.

        Love the look & feel of Boxer but seriously it needs push to contend with other mail apps. It's pretty useless to me without it. Please add it!

        Push is a very important feature for business purpose. Having the ability to get instant message for Exchange sever is a must-have thing in my perspective and people can turn off it if they like but such a flexibility is highly appreciated. How much votes we should collectively push for until an action can be made?

        Anything happening on this ?
        It's a great client but I can't use it without push from my own IMAP account (i.e. not of these MS/Yahoo/Apple accounts).

        Even running the app regularly iOS still runs Boxer rarely enough for the solution to be useless (not VMWare's fault, just the app needs push).

        Update on timescale estimates would be great (even though timescales can always change)

        The push notifications from office 365 seem to be very inconsistent and does look like it's actually doing a fetch most of the time although it is setup as a push

        Love the app but must have push for exchange ability or it is not worth continuing with.

        Where is the Push? We are using smart phones, and how the Boxer work - it's really not smart.

        i wonder why we need a vote option for this. Exchange any day need push notification. I won't be notified unless i don't open the app. This does not make any sense.

        I agree, we use this for out business delivery drivers and the fact that notifications don't immediately come through is causing delays and we have had to revert to using the native mail app.

        MUST HAVE: Ability for exchange server accounts to have immediate push from server of new emails rather than the current polling method.

      • Andrew Simmons commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Please add push for exchange accounts, then for iCloud accounts. This should be a must especially for the exchange accounts at businesses use this in correlation with airwatch!!!

        Great app and would continue to use if it wasn't for the lack of push. Disappointing.

      • Dan O'Brien commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I would think the vast majority of Boxer users are using Boxer to connect to corporate Exchange accounts, so push notifications for Exchange should be the priority. Please add!

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Please fix the push notification issues for exchange - much needed. An absolute essential for an email app.

        3 years under plan? What is the hold up? The interface is a lot better than iOS built in Mail but without push this tool is useless for our corporate accounts.
