    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)

  2. 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.

  4. 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…

  5. 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

  6. 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…

  9. 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.

  10. 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?'

  12. Chromebook Support

    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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  16. calendar show me as away

    If I use Boxer with Exchange Accounts I miss the "Show me as away" in my calendars.
    When I am editing a calendar entry which was created in Outlook with "away" boxer change it to another status.

    Please add away to the exchange calendars!

  17. Please make the FROM: line bolded instead of the subject line. When you receive mail the first thing you want to know is from who.

    With E-mail overload one needs to be able to quickly assess each e-mail. We do this by first finding out who is sending you the e-mail, is it your boss or a telemarketer, your Amazon account or a charity, your bank or an offer from Groupon.
    Then you look at the subject to know what the e-mail is about.
    So, please make the FROM: line bold, not the SUBJECT line.
    Thank you for your consideration.

  19. Allow "to" field to be shown at a glance, and not "me", it would be nice to be able set for display of the actual account email address.

    Allow "to" field to be shown at a glance when looking at headers and reading the email. "me" is not helpful when you have 4 email accounts to sift through. It would be nice to be able set for display of the actual account email address on each email as you browse through the combined view and account view.
