  1. i have photos in my company's Exchange account for most of my contacts. upon syncing to my jolla, those photos are gone.

    1. when i receive a meeting request as an email, i cannot respond to it appropriately (i.e. cannot accept, reject, tentative). it appears as a regular email only.

    2. sometimes i get emails that are sent to a large number of users. when i flick the screen to the left to view the details of who the email is from, who it has been sent to, the size of the mail, etc. the CC or TO field which has a large number of recipients doesn't display everything. in fact, the screen is not scrollable at all so that i cannot even see the size of the mail (this size information appears right at the bottom normally).

email app has a lot of issues, it is in my opinion the most beta app of the entire OS. On the roadmap a lot of issues are addressed. Check the roadmap tag

wanted to add another annoyance.

i have multiple folder in my Exchange mailbox. my default folder where i store all my emails (via a rule running on Exchange) is a subfolder under "Inbox"

each time i launch the mail application, it defaults to the "Inbox" and i have to switch to the subfolder. annoying.

can the email app please remember the last viewed folder? and if this folder is not found then fallback to "Inbox"?

also, can the email synch be modified to select on certain folders for synchronization? kinda like what did Mfe app did for the n900.

Please submit a separated suggestion for the default folder for better visibility, as for folder subscription there's: https://together.jolla.com/question/1209/email-allow-to-subscribe-to-multiple-folders-in-an-account/
