How can we improve Boxer for iOS?

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!

        Dear,

        connected to this issue: i don't like boxer running in the background and draining my battery. However, when I open the app, read some mails and delete them, I want boxer to push these events to the server.

        It would be nice if you could make a setting for this situation: not syncing when closed/in the background, only (but full) syncing when opened.

        Thx a lot,

        Maarten

        This is top reason I don't think I can keep using this app on my work phone. I have my bosses email also set up and the changes and actions I do are not reflected quickly enough. I was trialling it over outlook and apple mail.
