@andreibechet and I have gathered the results of the first "improvements" poll, namely additional features people are looking for in the email native client:

Here are the static results in full for Jolla to consider and see which features to prioritise on:

The sample size to date is 1,644 votes which I believe is a decent sample size for Jolla to seriously consider, so I hope this helps Jolla prioritise which needed email features are most important to the community.

Sail On, Timo (and Andrei)

What does that P mean ? At least second & sixth are coming in update10 :)

@VDVsx - sorry not sure what you mean ? Is there a problem with the formatting maybe ?

JollaTides ( 2014-11-06 15:30:41 +0200 )edit

On a daily basis I have to mark emails read and unread to simulate flagging of emails but then it is also quite confusing because you don't actually see which you have read and haven't. Vote here if you want to see this feature

Wizah ( 2014-11-06 19:21:44 +0200 )edit

@JollaTides - Yes, here it looks a bit broken, but I figure out that is the percentage :)

VDVsx ( 2014-11-06 20:48:29 +0200 )edit

The 2nd request - Option to mark / delete multiple mails and mark all already exists.

@juiceme no, that refers to when while reading a mail you zoom in to be able to clearly view it. Then you back to zoom out again before you can swipe to go back to list of messages.

Your problem is solved in update 9. If you accidentally swipe back while writing a mail, it automatically saves the draft.

Aashish ( 2014-11-29 00:04:10 +0200 )edit

@Aashish, How does this automatic draft saving work then?

I am on Uitukka and on my device I certainly cannot continue an email writing if I accidentally swipe out of the editor, back to the mail I was answering to...

juiceme ( 2014-11-29 15:27:33 +0200 )edit

@juiceme, You need version or later. Then, if you accidentally swipe out of the editor, swipe to folders-view, select drafts, and you should be able to pick your unfinished mail from there and continue writing.

@Lupin, thanks for your info, altough it comes a bit late... :)

juiceme ( 2016-08-03 13:58:45 +0200 )edit

Yeah, I know. But couldn't resist as finally there was a question where I knew what to answer. :)

I frequent tmo, just like you. But my handle on tmo is different.
