    • Don't indent quoted text

      Please stop indenting the quoted text. Outlook doesn't do that and your app messes up the formatting and look of email threads. Especially when multiple people respond.

      • Option to display plain text messages in a monospaced font

        I receive a lot of plain text emails which are designed to be viewed with a monospaced (fixed width) font so that characters on different lines are vertically aligned with each other. In Boxer plain text messages are displayed in a variable width font so are misaligned. Please could an option be added to enable display of plain text message to use a monospaced font (e.g. Courier)?

        • Zip files download

          The only downside so far is that I can't download zip files.Tried all possibilities - installing zip software, download software - it simply says "couldn't download the file"
          Will appreciate if you fix this soonest possible.
          Running version 2.7.0 now. CM12.

          • Please honor the format=flowed mimetype

            Plain text emails look terrible without it. the vast majority or email clients render them properly.

            • Support TeslaUnread for the Nova Launcher

              TeslaUnread shows unread counters on app icons for the Nova Launcher. I would love to use this feature also with Boxer.

                  create more themes to select from within the app or release a developer api so that other people can create themes and release them on Google play.

                    Using FastMail IMAP... drafts are being stored on device... not the server... that makes them useless

                    • Attachments management should improve

                      When I get a mail with a .zip or .csv attachment, even very small ones, Boxer seems unable to download the attachment (even with full wifi connection strength).
                      It tries "extracting" the csv which takes forever.
                      For a zip file, it says no application found to treat it even though I have ES File explorer and 7zip installed.
                      In general, it should be shown where a saved file was stored too

                        File handling is done by Android.
                        Downloading is handled by Android.
                        Files are always downloaded to the /download folder of your device.

                        1 tip: Always use the “download file” option ion the 3dot overflow menu on the attachment to download the file to your device, instead of just tapping the attachent on the bottom of the email message.

                        What account type (POP/IMAP/Exchange) are you having this issue with?

                            The Boxer email app does not indicate when a password needs to be reentered in the Boxer email app due to a password change to the email account outside of the Boxer email app. The Boxer email app just silently fails to retrieve any email from the account without any indication that an authentication problem is occurring.

                            • Show different calendars in Boxer than Android Calendar

                              I am moving over from Touchdown. Touchdown would show only my Exchange calendar. Boxer shows all my calendars. If I hide my personal calendars in Boxer they also become hidden in Android Calendar. This is not what I want. I want to show my Exchange calendar in Boxer and all my personal calendars in Android Calendar. Thank you.

                                Integration with Google Calendar allows Android to automatically go into "Do not disturb" (silence) mode when you have a meeting.
                                This is a feature called "Automatic rules' inside the Sound setting in Android.

                                • Allow toggling notifications for individual calendars

                                  I use google calendar for personal calendars (I have 8). Currently, if I disable calendars in Boxer, they also become disabled in google calendar. So the only way to keep both apps is to get notifications duplicated for personal calendar items since both apps seem to share the calendar selection. I would prefer to see everything in google calendar since I don't have to log in to see that calendar and I like that interface, but boxer calendar items are not shared with Google calendar.

                                  • Add ability to email all attendees of a calendar invite without adding each one to contacts

                                    Other calendar apps like Google Calendar allow you to email all invite attendees at the touch of a button. In Boxer, you must add each email address to your address book before emailing which is cumbersome. There is no ability to copy the email addresses from the invite either.

                                    This ability should be added so Boxer users can send quick messages (template or otherwise) like 'Running 5 minutes late' or 'Sorry can't make it, can we reschedule?'

                                      • Make ability to change the app theme. Either create a set of different themes (black, dark gray, colorful, etc.) or allow user creations

                                        Allow for much greater user customization in the appearance and feel of the application. A single color pattern makes for dissatisfied users

                                        • no passcode if device is passcode protected.

                                          my device is passcode protected. all other email apps (nine, Gmail, blue mail) either do not ask a second time or else (nine) allow me to switch off passcode entry in this case. I would like the same for boxer.
