  1. Make email refresh faster & more reliable.

    email refresh is way too slow and fails often.

    • Dark Theme

      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.

      • Store drafts on server!

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

        • Account backup

          I often switch from ROM to ROM and other devices. One of my favorite EE features was the ability to back up each account separately.

          • Add support for GnuPG on Android devices.

            APG in the Google Play store provides GnuPG integration to mail apps like K-9. It would be great to see Boxer support GnuPG.

            • Duplicate quote when replying (seen in client (Apple mail, Zimbra))

              When I reply to an email (in Boxer Android), I see my text twice in the email if I see it in Apple mail, Zimbra web client, possibly others (haven't tested).

              Steps to reproduce:
              1. send email from gmail to another account (I used a private IMAP server)
              2. Boxer email client (Android) is connected to private IMAP
              3. Reply to this email
              4. View the reply in Apple mail or other client --> the message looks like it is quoted twice.

              I'm not sure what the reason is, but the "raw" message source is attached.

              I'm also providing a…

                I’m sorry but as my test below showed, Outlook.com shows the headers perfectly fine.

                Not sure what is going on for you

              • Error: Device doesn't Support - Only allow manual sync while roaming

                Getting the above error recently. Dosnt fully make sense - as isn't syncing frequency controlled within app, not by device.

                Checking with Exchange Server administrator - a policy requesting this exists on the server - however has been there along while - which boxer app has worked durring.

                  Okay, will investigate further.

                  Most probably cause is that we do not support this policy (yet).

                • I can not open any of my emails

                  account is synced with my gmail and shows new emails and so on. but when i click to read them, screen "flashes" like its trying to open the email then goes back to inbox screen......

                  • Exchange server address changes when using protected Wifi

                    When using an Exchange account, the Server address under Incoming settings changes when using WiFi that is protected by a captive portal page (eg BT Openzone). The server address changes to the redirect URL returned by the captive portal page that is presented before logging on to the WiFi.

                      If I get a new email to a conversation I have archived, I see two notifications for the same email: one in inbox and the other in archive.

                      • Mails sync without attachments

                        I do have an account (Exchange over z-push and cyrus imap) that do not show the attachments of any Email.

                        Where to start investigating?

                        The stock Motorola email app shows the attachments of the same account fine.

                        • Improve battery usage

                          On my Samsung Galaxy S4, the battery usage of the app has skyrocketed of late. It seems to be downloading weeks worth of messages on my Gmail account after a couple of updates back, and I don't think that is useful and is a likely cause of the drain. I uninstalled and reinstalled (losing my Pro license from the text-5-friends promo), which helped for a couple of hours, but the problem returned. This really needs to be fixed ASAP.

                          • Allow HTML in email's body.

                            One of the greatest features of EE's editor was ability to insert HTML in the email's body. Before editor of the Boxer is advanced enough to insert images inline, change fonts and colours, could interpretation of HTML be added to allow more advanced emails and fancy email signatures required by many enterprises?

                                I have an iPad and two Android phones, and I have 11 email accounts. If Boxer had the ability to identify an email address previously added to the app on another device and auto populate the accounts & settings, that would be awesome.

                                  • Meeting Invite does not indicate it's an invite and does not include date/time of meeting (Exchange)

                                    In the Inbox, there is not indication the email is for a meeting invite. For example, other programs will have a calendar icon (e.g. EE).

                                    Also, once I open the email I must click on the "View in Calendar" button to find out which date and time of the meeting. Other programs (e.g. EE) provided that information in my time zone in the email.
