  1. Manual configuration of email accounts

    What i would like most of all is to see some kind of manual setup button when adding an account. If you hunt around online, you can find exchange activesync settings for hotmail, which allows push emails from hotmail, and which i have been using in EE, but because it's a hotmail account boxer just auto fills all the server settings, and they're different enough to prevent me from changing the settings manually after account creation.

    • Office 365

      I have an Office 365 account through my college. When trying to set this up with IMAP I keep getting errors saying Boxer isn't able to connect to the server. I have checked and re-checked the settings and I've typed everything in correctly. Am I missing something?

      • Keeps downloading same messages over and over

        I am using POP3 and have several email accounts all set to leave the messages on the server so they will be available to my desktop computer.

        I downloaded all the mail (354 messages). I then selected them all and deleted them. At the bottom of the window it showed 354 deleted. The Combined inbox was empty. I then pulled down in the area for the list of messages, and it downloaded the same 354 messages again. I am able to reproduce this at will. Using the Refresh command downloads the same messages over and over also.

        • Bug: broken email format

          In my case this only happens for one sender oddly enough. This has been consistently happening over the last month.

          Problem: Can't read incoming email due to bad format (see pic).

          Workaround : Initiate a Reply to email, scroll down and read message. Super annoying obviously.

          For me this only happens when I receive emails from Trip It for some reason.

          • Inline Images Broken

            Inline images display as broken image links, just as they would on a web page with a bad IMG tag. For me this is happening on an Exchange account, but obviously people are having this issue across multiple platforms and email account types.

            This is core functionality. It's like giving someone only part of their email but leaving out vital information. I use this for my work email, and the app is completely useless without the ability to view images; seriously!

            Please fix this as a top priority!!

            My phone is a OnePus One running CyanogenMod 12.0 (Lollipop).

                  Please look again, there is a very nice 3×3 widget available that let’s you select any folder you want.

                • Automatic Sync (Push) Delays

                  I have setup GMAIL accounts to Push Sync, and I have observed that there is a lot of delay in the Boxer app v/s the native email app on the Samsung S5. I push happens after few mins of my manual pull to refresh option. Is there is a schedule that Boxer Servers are using as it does not seem be automatic push from Gmail servers.

                  • I get an internal error of the app on my gmail account

                    everytime I open boxer with my gmail account or I initiate a manual update of the inbox it reports an internal error and it seems that no push notifications are received. I see new mails only when I open the app and sync the inbox manually.

                    • Problem with Gmail: Cannot sign into account

                      I keep getting an error message, saying I cannot sign into my Gmail account. After a few attempts to log in the message stops popping up and all e-mails are properly synced. Happens not every tome I start Boxer, but frequently.

                      All this on a Nexus 5 with Kitkat. Two-step authentification for Gmail.

                      Only happens with the Gmail account and none of my other mail accounts. I also run Boxer on a Nexus 7 and do not have the same problem there.

                      • A sent email should not affect the order of a conversation in your inbox

                        Currently, when you respond to an email with conversation mode enabled, the conversation then appears at the top of your inbox. I don't think any other email client with conversation sorting handles it this way. A response should not move that email to the top of your inbox. It should remain in chronological order based on the last email you received.

                          Attempting to add a Yahoo! account results in an intermittent hang at "Auto-discovery in progress" after entering the password. Or sometimes before. Or sometimes it will hang at the final step of account creation. So far, I've been unable to successfully add a Yahoo! account. No issues with AOL, Gmail, or iCloud. This seems specific to Android because my iPad has no issues with account adding. Also, I've noticed when this bug appears and I back out of that screen, the app loses its account listing in the settings screen and in the sidebar, and the messages list fails to…

                          • Missing Emails from Hotmail Account

                            I was comparing my emails in Boxer against what is listed in the browser. I found two emails that were missing in Boxer. Both were from the same recipient with the same subject line, but one was on the 7/2 and the other on 7/3. I also have other emails with the same recipient and subject lines, and they are shown in Boxer.

                            The only difference I can see at the moment is the one's that show up are in the same day as opposed to the ones missing are on difference days.

                            • Bug: Outlook address cannot be correctly set up as exchange address

                              When I tried to set up an @outlook.com address, I recognized that using the Outlook option was not sufficient.
                              I was unable to use the great features of exchange.

                              When I tried to set it up with the exchange option I was automatically forwarded to the outlook option, since my address ended with @outlook.com.

                              This is not the way I would except the functionality.

                              I was only able to set it up as an exchange address with a little hack. I change the ending to @outlook.de, so the app was unable to establish a connection to a server.

                                This issue has been corrected in an updated version availalbe in the Play Store (for Cyanogen users too)

                              • Accounts list empty (white screen), no accounts in settings, no body of email, crashes

                                After adding my 4th email account, I noticed a *large* number of bugs suddenly appear:

                                - Adding account hung on autodiscovery
                                - Frequently, the sidebar is completely white (empty), showing no accounts, nothing!
                                - Emails in a thread will be tappable but only to expand/collapse recipients, no body shown.
                                - "Boxer has stopped"
                                - Settings shows only General, Support, About, with no accounts listed

                                Some other weirdness... This is on the Pro+Exchange version. Happy to send logs, try betas, whatever.

                                    • Junk folder is not able to load mail from server in Outlook.com

                                      Only mail locally marked as spam is shown. Mail that goes to junk automatically is not loaded.

                                      • Bug? Attachments in forwarded mails aren't shown and can't be downloaded

                                        When I get forwarded mails with attachment I can't see neither the attachment nor any text.

                                        • Couldn't sign-in

                                          On a fairly regular basis I'm receiving a notification that my icloud and aol account couldn't sign in. I select the notification, leads me to the setting, I save it.... and I'm signed in not having changed anything.
