  1. HTML signatures

    allow the signature field to have HTML tags. This could be a simple toggle switch to allow HTML similar to the iOS version.

      • 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

            • Attachments management should improve

              When I get a mail with a .zip or .csv attachment, even very small ones, Boxer seems unable to download the attachment (even with full wifi connection strength).
              It tries "extracting" the csv which takes forever.
              For a zip file, it says no application found to treat it even though I have ES File explorer and 7zip installed.
              In general, it should be shown where a saved file was stored too

                File handling is done by Android.
                Downloading is handled by Android.
                Files are always downloaded to the /download folder of your device.

                1 tip: Always use the “download file” option ion the 3dot overflow menu on the attachment to download the file to your device, instead of just tapping the attachent on the bottom of the email message.

                What account type (POP/IMAP/Exchange) are you having this issue with?

              • Collapsing Folders in Exchange

                I would like the ability to collapse foldes/sub-folders when moving emails to exchange. As well as in folder view. This would be helpful to people with large amounts of folders and sub-folders.

                  • Support for calendar app of user's choice to add events to

                    In the actions menu, please let the users decide which calendar app to add an event to - some of us do not use the stock google calendar application.

                      Try to clear the default actions on the Google Calendar app and see it that makes your custom calendar app come up.

                    • 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.

                          • Boxer does not use the native spam folder

                            Unlike IMAP, Exchange does not have free free configurable special folders. Marking a mail as spam from Boxer moves the mail to the folder "Junk" and creates this folder if not existing. Unfortunately, this is not the native spam folder of Exchange, which is named "Junk-E-Mail" for my account.

                                This feature is present in nearly every established email client. Viewing a message does not mean it was read. The option to not automatically mark a message as read when opening it is crucial.

                                  • Boxer to notify when to change password

                                    The Boxer email app does not indicate when a password needs to be reentered in the Boxer email app due to a password change to the email account outside of the Boxer email app. The Boxer email app just silently fails to retrieve any email from the account without any indication that an authentication problem is occurring.

                                    • Allow toggling notifications for individual calendars

                                      I use google calendar for personal calendars (I have 8). Currently, if I disable calendars in Boxer, they also become disabled in google calendar. So the only way to keep both apps is to get notifications duplicated for personal calendar items since both apps seem to share the calendar selection. I would prefer to see everything in google calendar since I don't have to log in to see that calendar and I like that interface, but boxer calendar items are not shared with Google calendar.

                                      • Add ability to email all attendees of a calendar invite without adding each one to contacts

                                        Other calendar apps like Google Calendar allow you to email all invite attendees at the touch of a button. In Boxer, you must add each email address to your address book before emailing which is cumbersome. There is no ability to copy the email addresses from the invite either.

                                        This ability should be added so Boxer users can send quick messages (template or otherwise) like 'Running 5 minutes late' or 'Sorry can't make it, can we reschedule?'
