  1. Keeping your inbox clean

    Have a setting for those who want to keep their inbox clean. Force the user to have to do something with an email after it has been read so that it can't be left in their inbox. Either they have to delete it or move it to a folder. Make it a setting since others might not like this feature.

    • Sweep to Archive

      Your Sweep feature is fantastic and it's odd how other services haven't mimicked it. However, it would be more useful if you could add some features to it, for example, sweep to archive, sweep to a folder, sweep mark read etc.

      I find searching for specific emails to archive cumbersome and time consuming.

      This would really speed things up.

      Regards

      • Merge Clutter and Other

        With both Clutter and Other boxes, e-mail messages are potentially too dispersed across different boxes. How about merging Clutter and Other into just one "Clutter" box? It seems silly to have Focused, Other, and Clutter (three degrees of importance), when in reality two is all we need (Focused, Clutter).

        • reservation

          Give us the ability to turn off "simplified summary cards" in travel confirmation emails. I just want to see the email, not your interpretation of it.

            • Deleting Mail

              Hi,

              When I'm deleting Mail from my inbox, I set the filter to 'from' first as its easier to focus on the ones your definitely not interested in at the time and then delete from there. presently I have to delete individually, but it would be great if we could have a box at the top to delete them in a block? This would save time and hopefully make it easier for people to delete Mail and keep things tidy.

              Hope you understand what I'm explaining.

              Regards

              Paul Marriott

              • selection of same sender emails for deletion

                I would like to be able to select one message from a specific sender and then have the option to select all the other emails from the same sender so I could delete them all in one click. Facebook for example. No matter how many times you unsubscribe from specific types of Facebook emails they find a way to start sending you all the same junk a day later. There are certain emails I want from Facebook, but most of them are just junk and probably 85% of the 3500 emails I have in my Inbox. I appreciate your consideration…

                • Can a checkbox be added next to Automatic Reply so that one does not receive the auto-reply? It unnecessarily clutters my inbox.

                  Can a checkbox be added next to Automatic Reply so that one does not receive the auto-reply? Auto-replies clutter my inbox when I have to send Doug 12 e-mails even though I know he's out of the office until next Tuesday.

                  • Select all and Move to folder option

                    Hey there,

                    Just want to suggest that add a "move to folder" function or "archive" when the select all option is used. Currently there is only delete.

                    I'm trying to organise mt inbox (there heaps in there) and I don't want to delete the lot.

                    Thanks

                    Kyle

                    • Sweep all "older than ..."

                      Hi. I'd really like to be able to sweep by age regardless of sender to clear out large numbers of old emails from some folders. I can't even select a lot of emails at once at the moment, which makes deleting lots of emails very tedious indeed.

                        • master reset delete forward etc options

                          master reset button
                          since moving to outlook some mails are getting moved to wrong place so if you create a master reset button mails will come in then you can stat a fresh redirecting etc. i have considered singing up for a new e-mail but old colleagues would be lost, not desirable.

                                Besides folder and category view menus on the left i would like to be able to sort e-mail automatically based on domain name.
                                It would also be great to be able to sort domain by priority.

                                  • Can you keep the lines aligned?

                                    For example:
                                    When you mouse over an e-mail on top of your list, its marked out area will not align with the Inbox marked out area.

                                    (In other words: It's hurting my OCD)

                                    And is also a designer flaw. If you want to have a grid concept then keep the lines aligned! Please, be consistent!

                                      An converter from inbox rules to sweep rules. There is also a button missing for adding new sweep rules right within the options dialog.

                                      • "Move all" for multiple senders!!

                                        Return the ability to select emails from multiple senders and go to 'move all emails from these senders to *** folder and all future messages'. Doing it one by one is tedious!! Why did you remove this feature??

                                        • Get rid of unnecessary flags

                                          I do not see any advantage to me of waiting and watching "opening your mailbox" coming up on the screen of my laptop whenever I take a look at my mail. Now it even comes up twice before I am aloud to see my mail. Can you please get rid of this completely unnecessary flag. I know it's opening, I just pushed a button to open it.
