      This is currently possible with the bulk actions option in Boxer. Tap on avatars in the folder you are in to select more than one email at a time and take action on them.

    • Out of office reply

      could it be possible to add an 'Out of office' option to set up if using Exchange account?

        • Allow turning OFF conversation view

          Subject based threading in Boxer is buggy and cumbersome. Please let us turn it off

            It is currently possible to turn off message threading in Boxer for Android. To do so, remove the email account, and when you add it back again, you will see the option to disable threading. Turn this option ‘on’ and you will no longer have threaded messages once the account is added.

          • Calendar widget

            If I can't have a (adjustable size) widget, I can't replace my existing calendar.

              Current version 1.0 already has a resizable 3×2 widget.
              Widget name is Calendar.

            • More Account Color choices / customization.

              More color options and or customization. Currently I don't get the same color choice as Boxer for CM12 OS . Would be great to match colors on all my devices but I can't because I don't get the same choices.

                Please update your Cyanogen version of Boxer to the latest version in the Play Store.
                You may need to search for the app manually in the Play Store to see the Update button on your Cyanogen device.

              • Allow the body of the received mail to be edited before replying or forwarding

                There are any number of reasons why someone needs to edit parts of a received email before replying or forwarding to others (privacy protection of sender info, delete private notes added by previous sender, trim extraneous portions to shorten/focus the message, remove header from previous mail for aesthetic and other reasons, respond to questions point by point inline in the previous email, or to add one's own comments to those of others point by point inline). I can do this on virtually any PC platform. No reason why the developers don't allow this to be done on the mobile platform,…

                  This has already been possible since the beginning; just press the Respond Inline option while composing your reply.

                • Delete in Outlook.com has a bug.

                  Delete an email in an Outlook.com account moves it into Recycle Bin rather than putting it into the 'Deleted' folder where normally deleted emails go. It puts them in a separate folder entirely.

                      • Remove from calendar button in email when receive a cancellation

                        When I receive a meeting cancellation via my exchange account there should be a remove from calendar button. Currently you have to open up your calendar and delete the meeting or wait until you are in front of your PC and remove from calendar with outlook

                        • gmail label notifications

                          i have multiple labels setup in Gmail and rules that filter messages to those labels ONLY so as to not clutter my inbox. The native gmail app allows me to receive notifications once those labels receive a new email. achieving that level of integration would be a huge value-add.

                          • Different notification sounds for different accounts

                            I would really like to have an abilitiy to change notification sounds for different accounts as I need to have a loud and obnoxious notification for on of my accounts every other week (24/7) but the other two weeks I want it to just vibrate and show an icon. My other accounts need to have the same, but different notification as those are daily work related tasks.

                                  I just tested this with my Office365 account and starring correctly adds a flag to my messages in the Outlook Web App.
                                  Manual refresh may be needed.

                                      Great to hear!

                                      I would suggest to visit our Boxer Beta Google+ page so you can leave feedback like this there for everyone to see :)

                                    • can we please have calendaring support natively for boxer, calendar integration for android is missing.

                                      Thanks for the opportunity, I do believe an asset to have as part of the boxer arsenal would be to natively support *.ICS file extensions for android, the iPhone supports it for all of there calendering, cannot see why this would not be the case for gmail. That's what seperates the iPhone from a good phone that is functional for business needs. You can have 100 inbox clients , however if they perform the same and really have aesthetic changes nothing's different, a good business function is to have inbox invite calendar information.

                                      • Avatars : Square not round !

                                        PLEASE keep the avatars square. In many other apps the avatars are now round. When an app rounds an avatar i lose "informations". One of my contacts is a husband & wife team, when their pics is rounded i only see parts of thrir faces. Also many of my contacts are businesses and i use their logos as avatars. All is better if they are square !

                                        • Combined mailbox with unread option

                                          I would like an Combined box that would mimic the behavior of EE, that is it will show me all the UNRead mail in all folders on all accounts.

                                          I've followed this FAQ http://support.getboxer.com/knowledgebase/articles/390201 But that doesn't give me the option for it to show only unread.

                                            There already is an Unread folder in the Combined Inbox, which will show all unread from all accounts/folders
