    • 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.

      • 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.

        • 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.

          • 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.

                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.

              • "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!

                • Option to turn off LED notification when notification is turned on

                  I used this feature in Enhanced Email. I want to be notified only by having the new emails icon on the status bar. I don't want the LED to start flashing also. Is there a way to turn off the LED? I get emails quite often so I only want to know when I am actually using the phone.

                    • 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

                      • Show account name

                        When in single-box view (not combined) it would be helpful to know which Inbox or account I'm viewing. For example, display the account name at the top of the page, eg Inbox (Steven) or Inbox : Gmail

                          • 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.

                            • Mark as read rich notification

                              Boxer is working well with my multiple accounts, across my Android phone, tablet and iPad-awesome, already my default client

                              But one major usability piece I miss from Boxer compared to Kaiten Mail, is the rich notification capability to see a new email and press mark as read immediately.

                              Not seen it on the lists so far.

                                  • 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.

                                      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.

                                        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.

                                        • 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.
