  1. 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).

    Thanks for testing!

    This will be available on the next version.

  3. 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.

    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)

  6. 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

  7. 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. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. App Unusable on Android 6.0

    Flashed and wiped my Nexus 6 with the Android 6.0 factory image and since re-installing Boxer through the Play Store the application fails to get past the initial setup:
    - Setting up Exchange it fails to connect to the server after entering in login details.
    - Application crashes when setting up Gmail account after the 'authorize application to access...' step.
    No prior issues when running on the same handset with 5.1 nor currently on Nexus 7 (running 5.1).

  12. Bug: Unecessary attachment text file generated with specific IMAP account

    Using my own domain, configured as an IMAP account, every email that I create or forward from boxer show up with an "untitled attachment file" in the sent folder of my account.

    - Open boxer, Select account
    - Create email with a title and some text. The boxer is signature is included, and the send the email
    - Go to Outlook 2013, open the same account, go to sent email.
    The email is properly displayed but has text file called "Untitled attachment 00049.txt" That number is random.
    That attachment file contains all the text of the email created or forwarded.…

  13. Bad Message-ID Header

    The Message-ID header lacks a '<' so that many mailservers answer with 553 5.0.0 Header Error

  14. 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.
    I was…

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

  18. PDF Attachment in conversation not shown.

    I have a conversation with two e-mails, each contains a different PDF document attached. The attachment simbol appears on the headers of the e-mail, but the attachments are not shown (nor accessible) in the emails.

    I have OPO with official cyanogen 12S.

    Thanks in advance.

  19. Email syncs, even though sync is turned off

    I have several email accounts (IMAP, POP, Exchange).
    The Exchange account is ONLY for calendar sync. I do not wish to sync email for this account, so I have disabled "sync email".

    Still, randomly, boxer still syncs the email for this account, even though it's disabled in the settings.

  20. Wrong notification

    As emails are stacked /grouped, new mail notification contents the first-in-the-stack details, not the last. Especially annoying for smartwatch users. How can I at least cancel the grouping?
