  1. Different background shades for read/unread messages

    Currently whether the messages are read are indicated by a blue dot, which is not very obvious. Maybe I'm accustomed to other email clients which all shade the messages grey on the conversation list. It might be a conscious design decision, but it's the major frown upon short coming after I switched from gmail default client.

                    Boxer already syncs the read status back to the server on Exchange and IMAP. This is not possible for POP3 accounts.

                  • Subfolder sync and notifications

                    Being able to sync subfolders (which can be done through the Custom Mailbox already) and get notified when new messages come into those folders.

                    • "Select All' button

                      When adding a new account, 100's of messages could come in at once. For a POP account, they all come in unread. I need to tap 100 times to be able to mark them all read.....

                      We need Select All functionality!

                      • User configurable LED notification color (EE feature)

                        (Enhanced Email feature)

                        One suggestion over the EE implementation: The color wheel selection tool was a bit of a pain in that the LED seldom interpreted the color correctly. I would recommend a pallette of 8 or16 colors to choose from instead.

                            Dropbox integration was never removed from Boxer on Android. If you are looking for Dropbox integration for iOS, you now no longer need to turn it on in the settings. As long as you have the Dropbox app on your phone or tablet, when you attach a file, it will give you the option to select from Dropbox.

                          • 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.

                              It would be helpful to be able to manipulate (delete, ToDo, move, etc.) individual emails within a conversation without having to do it to the whole conversation.

                              • If the user has unlocked Exchange support let him add an Outlook.com or Microsoft account with EAS support to have push notification

                                By default Boxer uses IMAP to set up an Outlook.com account even when the user has bought Exchange support. Please add an option so we can choose to have a Microsoft account set up as Exchange to have the benefits of EAS like push notifications instead of relying on IMAP periodic sync.

                                          Widget will work starting from version 0.5.9.
                                          It will have a few bugs, but at least it can be added now :)

                                          Enhanced notifications for Android Wear would be a nice thing to have. Like compose/respond emails with voice, mark as read or quick replies.
