Feature Ideas

Help us build the smartest email app on the planet!

  1. Mail limit > 400

    Just found out the Canary Mail only shows the last 400 mails per account... I really think this a no-go (at least for the desktop app), so I want at least an option to see/download/cache all mails to my computer...



  2. Set up Reminder to Follow up an Email

    You can set it up for mails with the condition that only sends you a reminder if they dont replay or send a reminder even if they replay

  3. Out of Office Responder

    Out of office replies would be very useful when OOO. This is an important feature for those using Canary for work.



  4. Sorting emails by sender

    Sorting emails by sender is, own my opinion, a basic function of every email client. It helps to sort through emails quickly and clear unwanted emails or move them to folders. I find it amazing that Canary Mail does not have this feature. It is also noted that Canary Mail's own website promotes sorting emails by sender (https://canarymail.io/blog/manage-and-organize-emails/): 'Group by the sender: Another way to organize your inbox is by grouping messages from specific senders together. This can be particularly useful if you work with a lot of different people and want to quickly find messages from a particular colleague or client.' So, why is this function not there?



  5. "✓ " Read receipts icon shown in message - with each email address separately.

    Please add "✓ Read" in the correspondence window next to each email address (To: - Cc: - Bcc: ) separately.

  6. Email Search engine: search "from:mario", "from:xxx@mail.com"...

    As it is a standard on email clients, along the day we need to retrieve a communication from someone of from a subject. so usually we do a search using keywords, like "from: mario" and I will see all emails listed that were sent by mario, or I write "to:xxx" and I see all emails sent to xxx...or even by subject, "subject:xxx". and I can read all emails from xxx subject. this is key to work efficiently.

  7. Make canary smarter like Spark mail

    To divided mails at the top the mail box, and pins and seen, it’s easy to check the mails, also show the numbers of the inbox and pins each at the bottom of the mail, please refer to Spark.



  8. Ability to create MS Teams & Google Meet online meeting invite directly from calendar

    Many service provider (including EM Client, Super Human & Outlook) have this feature of creating direct meeting link from calendar. Please integrate the same.

  9. Show Full Email Addresses for Phishing Protection

    To help combat phishing, I would like to have full email address visible all the time, not just the "friendly name". It's too easy to be lulled into a sense of security without seeing the full email address.

  10. Individual Delivery and Read Receipts for Emails

    Implement a feature that displays delivery and read receipts for emails sent to multiple recipients (including CC/BCC). A single check mark (✔️) would indicate that the email was delivered, and a double check mark (✔✔️) would indicate that the email was read. These indicators should be shown separately for each recipient to track the status of each individual email action.

  11. Add S/MIME support

    Signing and encrypting e-mails using S/MIME is common practice in the business world. So in order to get useful in a business environment, an e-mail client should support S/MIME.



  12. Apple’s Reminder integration

    Congrats re: integrations. This is game changer. Can we expect an integration with Apple’s Reminder anytime soon? Also, this would be awesome to have integrations options in swipes for quicker access/process. Best

  13. Save a mail as pdf

    for some people it is useful to create mails as pdf in respective folders



  14. Allow the movement of one folder into another

    I have a tax folder for each year and found today when trying to create 2024-2025 folder I can't place previous years folders in there.

  15. Account Colour Prominence

    Showing account colours only adds a very thin bar the the side of the email in the inbox. It doesn’t really help that much. I’d like to see this bar a bit bigger and in the left hand side next to the avatar to increase visibility.
