  1. Custom flags

    Imap servers supports currently-defined system flags (http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc3501#section-2.3.2) and often custom flags/keywords (http://deflexion.com/2006/05/server-side-message-labels). Also Desktop mail clients like Thunderbird or MailMate can read custom flags.

    Is it possible or even planned to implement such a custom flags-„managment“ in Boxer?

  2. Pull avatar from domain apple icon

    Many domains have an apple icon defined on there website index page. Other email programs I use pull the icon for the avatar when others aren't available. This is a much better solution that your database of avatars for companies as there are many smaller companies not in your database.

  4. Decoy password for specific accounts

    f you could add in the future an option to enter a decoy password to show only a specific accounts it would be simply the BEST!!!
    that way we can simply choose which accounts will show with the real password and which accounts with the decoy password.

  5. Empty trash/spam shortcut

    There should be a button placed somewhere in the trash/spam folder that when pressed permanently deletes all the mails in the trash folder. Currently I have to select every mail in the trash and then perform batch delete action on them. It would be a great convenience. May be it can be put somewhere on the navigation bar of trash folder or in the sidebar menu.

  6. Allow for attaching pages numbers and Keynote documents. Document picker does not allow this.

    Selecting attachments does not allow attaching anything except textedit docs. Not sure why

  7. Auto Swipe

    The swipe feature could be extended by an "auto swipe" setting where one would set a default swipe action (for a sender's email address) and boxer would execute this swipe automatically in the future.

    This is a fucntionality I found very useful in the "Mailbox" app. The user would execute a swipe action but hold the swipe button and not release it. The app would then come up with a list of mailboxes and the user would choose the default mailbox for the sender's email address. There should be an option whether an auto swiped email shall be marked as…

  8. Disable instant search

    Live search results show up as you type in the search bar. This causes major performance issues on iPhone 4S. Pressing a button to execute the search based on the entered criteria is a perfectly good mechanism.

  9. Save picture avatars after update

    With each boxer update I get to go back and select picture avatars again. Gets kind of old with each update having to take the time to change the avatars from company's that don't get loaded automatically.

  10. Select photo for Avatar opens a 'Photos' screen in portrait orientation

    Selecting a photo to be used as an avatar takes me to a 'Photos' screen, but that always opens and stays in portrait orientation, even when my iPad Mini is in landscape position.
    I expect the screen to appear in landscape orientation.

  11. Text size increase in landscape mode

    With this new version, the font rendering has improved for which I'm happy. However, when switching to landscape mode the font size aught to increase and it doesn't.

    I can understand if this doesn't occur with some html messages that enforce font size and type, but it shouldn't be the case for messages that don't.

  14. Subject line often garbaged in Japan

    utf16le is not so popular for mail subject encoding format.
    In my understand, utf8 is popular for subject encoding with i18n support.
    For example, iPhone Mail app and Gmail choose utf8 instead of utf16le.

    In Japan, utf16le encoded subject often garbaged.
    All of japanese feature phones supports e-mail but the mail client supports local charaet only.
    So all of japanese mobile careers provide transcoding mail encoding service to avoid garbage.
    However the transcoding services do not suppot utf16le.

    I understand that this issue is not a bug of Boxer.
    I hope you will consider changing subject encoding for Japanese users.

  15. Still no support for SMTP servers that have no authentication

    My ISP only allows me to use their SMTP server when I am connected to the Internet at home. As a result it requires no password authentication, as my ISP knows that I have connected securely through my router. Boxer does not allow me to set up an account with a SMTP server that doesn't require a password. I know it's possible as the native Apple Mail app allows me to do so. I complained about this oversight well over a year ago, and was assured that it was high on the developers list to fix. Now, several iterations later,…

  17. accept or decline calendar from non-default account

    I have three email accounts (Personal, Work, and Shared).

    Currently my personal email is the default account. I want to be able to accept a calendar invite from the non-default account.

    For example, a colleague sends me a business invite for a meeting, I want to be able to accept the invitation from my work, not my personal account.

  18. Name in list from Contacts

    With iOS 7, Apple's Mail.app (on iPad) added the ability to display the sender name not as they configured in their own email settings, but as we have it written in our Contacts file for the person.

    Two examples:

    • My friend bob has his email name configured as "bob jones". In my Contacts for him I have his name capitalised. In the mail list for Apple Mail it displays his name as "Bob Jones" (pulling from Contacts), but in your app it displays as he configured, as "bob jones.

    • One of my students has her name configured as "tomoko36478". In…

  19. Saving email to Evernote

    Emails saved to Evernote are missing critical information. There is no sender, recipient, email title or time and date. Only the body of the email is saved, which I don't think is sufficient.

  20. No detailed information in push-notifications when password protected

    Please add an option to suppress detailed mail information in push notifications when the password protection is enabled.

    When the password protection is on, I want the mails to be private and not popping up with information on the sender etc. in my lock screen. Instead, only a message like "a new mail arrived" should be displayed.

    Thank you for your consideration.
