  1. ban spam

    Once I report an email as "spam", delete it, and make sure further emails from this sender will be trashed.

  2. 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.

  4. Change conversational mode on the fly without deleting your account first

    It would be nice to change conversational mode anytime back and forth.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. Bug: Unable to open ical attachements

    I often forward ical attachments for meetings that I have forwarded to myself from Outlook. Using the GMail clicking on the attachment opens the stock calendar app. I can then use the calendar to create the event. Using Boxer the calendar appears to start to open but then it flashes back to Boxer with the error "Unable to Launch Event". This is making it hard to come up with reasons to switch to using Boxer.

  8. search

    It would be fantastic if there were search categories like "from" and "conversation" - the feature exists in iOS iPad app.

    It would be even better if as an extension, typical Outlook search handles like "From:" "To:" "Subject:" and "HasAttachments:" could be used as a second layer for power users.

  12. 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.

  15. 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.

  17. 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…

  18. 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.

    0.7.1 has speed improvements that should make opening the app and messages much faster

  19. Emails not Displaying from my Exchange Account

    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…
