Sailfish mail app missing features/bug reports

    I want to get a list of all features missing from the sailfish mail client and post it on together. As it is, it is usable, barely ... but we need some features. I was examining these days the list on Together and the big requests have been delivered. We should also become more granular, maybe.
    We should focus on this for 1-2 weeks.

    Note: we should write this organized so it wouldn't be very hard for me to process into a list later.
    Start by writing it:
    1. feature name - explanation
    If someone else wrote that feature ... just say +1 to that feature (something like 1. +1 to feature_name).

    After 1-2 weeks I will create some sort of processed list and post it here, to double check with all you before putting it on together. After this we can move to calendar app, messenger and so on (the order is not fixed and can be discussed in the general chat of the forum).

    1. Search
    2. Threaded view
    3. Select all (very useful after applying a filter)
    4. After zooming in, being able to return to list of mails without having to zoom out.

    as i don't use the Mail-App in a work fashion i'm quite pleased with its Stability. So i'm gonna quote andrei and add +1s. Points 1 and 2 would be the points i would have raised also.

    1. Search +1
    2. Threaded view +1
    3. Select all (very useful after applying a filter) +1
    4. After zooming in, being able to return to list of mails without having to zoom out. +1



    i'm not even close to be a first one

    Sounds good Andrei I'll do some thinking on this one as I haven't missed much but know there are probably additional functions which would be useful. Will let you know... :)

    PS. Suggestion to keep the thread tidy instead of +1 repeating posts everytime, people could just click "like" if they like all features mentioned ? That might save some space make the thread more useful ?

    1. Ability to add email sender to contacts
    2. Text formatting when sending email (e.g. bold, italics)
    3. Mark all (or selected) emails as read.

    Also, +1 to search and threaded view.

    5. option for read/write mails in text(-only) mode.
    6. a "mark all read" for all mails from all accounts and all mails from one account (no 3. Mark all (or selected) emails as read. +1 (from Lacrimosa))
    7. fetch mails from account with more than one mail address for only one mail address of the account (ex. on server 'mymail.org' is one account with two mail addresses 'my1staddr@mymail.org' and 'my2ndaddr@mymail.org' = user can config, that the mail client only fetches the mails that were sent to "my1staddr@mymail.org)

    1. better html formatted email handling
    2. unable to Swype-out(go back) without zooming out, sometime needs zoom-out twice
    3. copy/paste content on html formatted email doesn't work or very tricky
    4. signature under all previous threads, it should be at the end of my message, makes signature invisible
    5. send email is in top menu, not so intuitive, sometimes hard to reach (too many swipes on long email)

    I hope, I'm not too late as I was waiting for my account approval :)

    No no ... every suggestion is good. I will create a poll these days and then people can vote. Than I will submit to together portal in an organized manner.

    I completelly forgot to mention and highlight possibility to search-on-type from Exchange GAL (Global Address List / or how it's called these days)!!! It's must have feature for any corporate ! Lack of it is unforgivable :)

    Might be a little late, but I still miss two essential features in the list:

    - Mail Identities (=support for alias mail adresses)
    - Colored quotes (= different colors for different quote levels, also in the editor!) It's the standard behaviour of Thunderbird, if you want to have more colors see Quote Colors Plugin as example.

Howdy, Stranger!
