Global INbox - mark unread mails as read

Post by poet-man »

Hi there,

I find it extremely helpful to have that global INbox.
Will it be possible to mark all unread mails as read?
What I see, is, that I have to go to all the inboxes, to do this there.

Thanks

Select emails in All Inboxes, right click and choose Mark as Read. Is that what you were looking for?

almost ...
I thought, it might be, as it is in a single inbox, we had so far ... right click on it and mark entire inbox as read.
But for the time being I can mark a single mail, mark all mails (Ctrl-A), right click any, and mark all as read in context menu.
Maybe there will be a feature in future to mark all mails in global INbox as read?

Why not, that one would be easy to add into the next release.

Great!
Could there also be a feature, to have focus on top of mail list automatically, so not to have to scroll arround?

This is a bit tricky one as EPIM always remembers an item with the focus upon switching away from a module/folder. So that's a standard behavior which we wouldn't want to alter at least at the moment.

I understand ... however mail is something, having to do with latest messages (most times). So having focus somewhere completely else, means clicking and scrolling around until one gets to the latest mails.
That global INbox, for me, seems to underline this (I DO want to see all the mails, that came in lately).
So, I think, an option to automatically have focus on top og global INbox would make sense (or on top of any other folder). If some users do NOT want this, this option could be deactivated.

Okay, let see whether there's some demand for this feature.

or at least a short key for that.
I find it extremely annoying to have to move/scroll/klick arround to get there
