        • 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.

                There is a new Beta available (1.2.6) that includes a fix which will hopefully lessen the amount of emails being downloaded on initial setup.

                You can apply for Beta here: https://plus.google.com/communities/102581534035171613663

                Please let us know if this is a definite fix.
                (you need to remove your account and re-add it to be able to test it)

              • Option to NOT automatically mark as read when viewing an email

                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.

                  • Loading items in large folder takes long

                    First I configured the option 'Days to Sync" to 1 month.
                    --> loading of the folder content was really fast

                    From the moment I configured the option "days to sync" to ALL
                    --> loading of the folder content takes a long time.

                    Since I have several accounts, the loading of the combined view really even takes long. In some cases up to 30 seconds!

                    Could this behavior be explained because Boxer first loads all the messages and only after that is completed it will really show the content?

                    If that would be the case, I would like to suggest to…

                    • Takes long time to open message

                      I have a single Exchange account set up.
                      When I click on the notification to open a new email, it takes 9-10 seconds before the email actually shows. Boxer opens immediately, but then it just spins for 10 seconds and then the email will display.
                      With the same Exchange account in Enhanced Email, I was not experiencing long delays like that.

                        Very strange. This morning I saw all my emails from my Exchange account. About 30 minutes ago, I'm only seeing one email from July 8. For July 9, I current have 9 emails. For July 8, 51 emails.

                        As I was writing this, I received a new email. It showed up in the list, but when I clicked on it, Boxer crashed.

                        And I was writing the line above, I received another new email. It also showed up in the list and the same thing happened where it crashed Boxer. The messages says, "Unfortunately, Boxer has stopped". It has two…

                            • 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?'

                                    my device is passcode protected. all other email apps (nine, Gmail, blue mail) either do not ask a second time or else (nine) allow me to switch off passcode entry in this case. I would like the same for boxer.

                                      now that chrome os supports play store and android apps, some better testing against that platform would be great. works great sometimes, continual crashes at other times.

                                      • Add capability for calendar widget to drop off events that are completed. Keeping full day of events on calendar widget is bad form

                                        Current calendar widget does not drop off completed events on the calendar. This makes the widget very dissatisfactory to utilize.

                                        • Ability to reorder accounts

                                          It would be niceto change the display order of accounts, preferably a drag and drop system within the left side menu.
