Currently it seems only possible to mark an e-mail as unread by a long-tap on an e-mail in the e-mail list. It would be good to have "mark as unread" in the pull-down menu while reading the mail as well. It makes it easier if you have a lot of mails in your inbox.

yes, a "mark all as read" option in the pulley menu would be nice to have in the folders and the account overview.

This should be also possible for multiple selection both marking unread and read.

Also deletion of unread mail should clear the unread status indicator as discussed in this question

The problem now is:

  1. You open the email app and end up in the list of unread mails of all you email accounts

  2. You open an email but notice it contains something that requires you to return the email later on

  3. You return to the mail list but (naturally) it still shows you only the unread emails

  4. To be able to change the important mail back to unread, you need to remember which email account it was sent to and then enter that account to able to long press it and set back to unread

Any news on that? The feature would be very important for some people dealing with a lot of emails (and/or accounts). I quite often open emails then realize they will need later answer, on a daily basis, and this is especially true on a smartphone device because most often I have to use my laptop to reply (documents to send, actual keyboard). Coming back to the email list, scrolling, and finding the email is quite inconvenient. Thanks!

In addition to "mark as unread" I would also like to be able to "Move To" from inside the mail, I like to have a view that shows me mails by status instead of order received and that makes it very hard to move an e-mail after reading it....

Last but not least if there is a way to do "adding labels" that would also be cool, as far as I understand it in gmail through the IMAP protocol it would be the same as "copying" the message instead of moving it to another folder....

No word from Jolla (yet), but thank you for bumping this request. Hopefully someone at Jolla suddenly notices it and realises it's probably a quick fix.
