POLL: e-mail improvement suggestions

Post by PeCe »

Since there are regular suggestions for improvements concerning the e-mail module, I like to combine them (those that I found) in one poll. So others can vote AND tell why they like what improvements in the e-mail module.

Since I was allowed "only" 10 poll options I could not add all suggestions I found, the following I left outside the poll, but you can select [other] and tell in a reply that you prefer one of these
- 1- Add notes to e-mails
- 2- Setting preferences for accepting cookies
- 3- Option to preview messages as text and block HTML preview
- 4- Save e-mails as templates (although I guess that saving them as concepts might work the same)
- 5- Option to detach attachments and remove attachments from the received e-mail.

You can vote for two options, I hope this helps the EPIM programmers to establish what options we prefer. Also I have added a general {other} option, but hope that if you select this you will enter a reply that you have chosen other and what other option you would like.

Ideally, I would like IMAP to sync deleted email messages with the server so that when I access my email online, I don't have to go and redelete the emails I already deleted in ePIM Pro!

Store emails as notes (by dragging to the Notes tab), or Cut/Paste operation which would take the whole email with its headers.

Hello,
it actually works this way. If it does not for you, it sounds like a bug.
One detail- EPIM puts your deleted emails into "Deleted Items" or "Trash" folder, but does not delete them actually from the server.

I'd like to add an extra-strong super-vote for blocking remote content, and also for an option to display only plain-text and/or HTML/RTF "source code".

I don't see how we can protect ourselves against viruses and spam if EssentialPIM's going to automatically download and/or display any old junk the email's sender chooses. You can't rely on a firewall to block "web bugs" to maintain privacy, or an anti-virus program to prevent zero-day exploits in the rendering engine for HTML code.

These two features are essential from my point of view. It's a shame EssentialPIM doesn't allow either of them, because otherwise it's an extremely good program, and I would love to migrate to it permanently. As it is, I won't be using EssentialPIM 's email module at all, and because of that, I will probably stick with Outlook, despite its awful handling of IMAP mail.

If possible, I suggest the addition of three improvements:
1) read e-mails and unread e-mails should make a distinction, the unreads sticky.
2) the e-mails of the same sender, day(today,yesterday,the day befor yesterday,early), category can be folded and unfolded.
3) the multiple replies of the same subject, can be automatically folded and shown the count;click the number,the e-mails will be folded and unfolded.

The proposed qizhuxu is a very good proposal, it would save a lot of work to users who use very much the application.... :D

So far I like working with EPim. Especially the fact that I now have one application for my email and agenda and contact, that I can use on my business laptop, my private laptop and my travel notepad.

Since I was used to use DreamMail, I am somewhat spoiled when it comes to email functionallity. In this perspective EPim could do with some of its features. Here's my suggestion out of all possibilities that program has.

1. Make it possible to filter emails by column, for every column possible.
2. Make it possible to group emails by column, for every column possible.
3. Make it possible to sort emails by column, for every column possible.
4. Make it possible to create your own filters and store the filters and there results (i.e. create views on emails).

Just remembered a thing I miss very much. Clicking the envelop in front of the email should toggle read/unread.
