    • Wake screen option for notification

      I would like the option to enable the app to wake up the android device screen when a new email arrives and a notification is
      made.

          • "Send As" feature

            Hello,
            I din't find a way and it would be great if you could implement he "Send As" or "Send on Behalf Of" features for exchange accounts. I can do this on desktop Outlook app and on webmail, but I didn't find any Android app that could do this.
            Best regards,
            Adrian

              • Application-wide Search

                Searching for mails, calendars, contacts separately makes no sense. That can be done in separate applications. Email address bar should search contacts for address cc auto suggesting. Look at search in Samsung focus.

                  • The ability to edit repeating/delete events recursively

                    So I went to edit a repeated event to remove the notifications, which I did not know where activated, and set it to repeat every 2 weeks, forever. This didn't edit the existing event but created a new one but without notifications. So I now have a new issue and still have the old one.

                    I think it would be very useful to be able to batch edit and/or delete repeating events.

                    • stability - Freeze

                      I would really like boxer to be more stable when using it. I think there should be an option to stop the inbox constantly refreshing while writing or reading emails. There should be a freeze button which only permits outward email data eg a draft or to send an email.

                      The freeze button can be linked to wifi to stop data being used. The freeze button can be placed in a menu for ease of access.

                      It is possible more conflicts can occur if the freeze if kept on for too long. So a freeze button should reset on close/crash…

                      • Click and hold to enter multiple selection mode.

                        In most other email apps, clicking and holding a message enters multiple selection mode. Boxer has this when you click the picture on the left, bit because that can be far away and the click/hold motion is currently unused, I propose it do the same thing.

                        • Improve the Add Account experience

                          I'm not sure if this would be considered a "bug" but the new Add Account screen has some design flaws.

                          In previous versions, simply putting in my username and password was enough to add a Gmail account to the app. It would automatically determine my outgoing name, and the account name was just the email address by default. Having auto-discovered values for this made the initial setup much quicker, and I could still easily change the values if I needed to.

                          Also, the purpose of those fields was much more clear in the previous version. "Name" is ambiguous - there's…

                          • when we set the email for todo it should be stared/flagged with date automatically and show in outlook, now i have to do it manually

                            when i set the email to TODO it should be flagged/stared with date automatically so that i can see that on my outlook as a task with date , the TODO function only moves it to TODO folder even if i am able to set the date it doest do anything and no visibility of dates and assigned person. Priority field should be customizable to alline with catagories in outlook ie Urgent, waiting ,read than high low and medium

                              When I delete from the notification, or mark as read or whatever, can the notification automatically dismiss?

                                • Gestures in action grid view

                                  Would it be possible, in the same way as the Google keyboard; to allow gestures when in grid view.

                                  For instance; when I get a sales voice through I want to mark it as read and move it. It would be cool too touch the mark as read option then drag my finger to the move option and action the email in two moves.

                                  cheers

                                    • Add option to disable the "Deleted" notification.

                                      When deleting a mail from the notification you then have to process a second "deleted" notification which seems superfluous. It would be great if this confirmation notification could be disabled.

                                      • Ability To Toggle Off Always Show Pictures For This Sender

                                        Once one has selected this option for a sender it is permanent. One should be able to toggle this off for future emails from this sender.

I have had a couple of solutions come out of the forum, neither of which worked for me. However Stella suggested I have seperate calenders for each of the event statuses I want to display on the website, and to select all those calenders when using the embedding section. On the first couple of attempts this did not work, but when I played around a bit with the syncing, and surprise surprise it suddenly did.
                                          I now have events displaying in different colours, based on…
