        Please enable auto download including images for faster and offline viewing of mails instead of waiting on opening the mail.

        The client is basically displaying server info instead of client info. It should display and give notifications only for mails which has already been downloaded by the service

        i recieve a lot of e-mails daily and need to save 99% of them, so it would be great to be able to download in bulk

        Morons bothered to build a "link preview" feature but couldn't be bothered to provide a convenient download button? Says a LOT about their priorities....

        But please make an option to disable/enable automatic download of images, that just increases spam (tracing image). It is already blocked by default for unknown contacts in Outlook for Windows.

        you can receive the notification of an email but if you lose connectivity between the notification and being able to read it, you can't access it.

        Why not load new emails in the background?! I always get a notification about a new email but when I open the app inbox it empty. Why not load the mail in the background and then provide the notification?! Always need to refresh, this app is soon to be as bad as the latest Skype version.

        quite often, the messages take a min or more to appear in the inbox after I click the notification.

        Currently the email body is not downloaded when the message comes in. Only the email header appears, and the message body is not downloaded until the email is opened. This doesn't matter if you always have Internet access, but in rural areas this is a major problem. I can be driving along through areas with 4G and my messages are not downloaded. I arrive at a destination where there is no Internet access, and I can't retrieve my mail. dumb

        currently able to download mails of only certain period. Need to press load more messages everytime for getting older mails. Should be able to download all mails automatically.

        incredibly slow, need to auto sync and cache at least 2 weeks of email. if you work abroad where you may be offline or in slow bandwidth it makes the app pretty much useless

        There are too many emails that I am not interested in and don't want downloaded on my computer and causing problems or viruses.
