Feature Ideas

Help us build the smartest email app on the planet!

  1. 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?



  2. Option to Paste without formatting (cmd + shift + v) or 'clear formatting' option

    It's impossible to copy something from a page and paste it inside a canary mail. cmd+shift+v which should paste and remove formatting doesn't work. By right clicking there's no "clear formatting" option.

  3. Compose/Reply Emails on main screen

    Compose/Reply to an email within the main Canary App Screen or ability to toggle "open in a new window" option for reply/composing settings.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.



  6. 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...



  7. Format - font size and font type in message

    🤟🏻 Hi Change the possibility of changing the font size to the same system as macOS. This is the same case with font selection.

  8. 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

  9. 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.



  10. Weekly View In Calendar

    Not sure why but having more customization options for the calendar would be a big plus. Why there is NO « week » view is incomprehensible to me. As well, week start days, length of appointments and maps of locations should all v’be standard. It would make Canary “all-encompassing “ and save from running a calendar program. Having it tightly integrated with the email would be a big plus as well. Go directly from an email to booking a time slot with one swipe. thanks for taking the time to consider it.

  11. 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.

  12. "✓ " 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.

  13. UX design SOS, plus some more

    I really like the app's features but I find the user interface challenging. The UI feels claustrophobic with wasted space, particularly in the lower and upper parts with icons. The lower part obstructs the view of messages and should be relocated or resized. The upper part's icons are too large. I suggests combining and resizing these icons and placing them at the top. I also it difficult to send feedback through the app, I had to go to the website and use chatbot. I recommend including an easy to find "Feedback" option inside the app, it will also minimize bad reviews on PlayStore. Additionally, the fonts are sometimes too small to read (inside emails). Despite these issues, I'm impressed with the app's comprehensive features and hope for UX design improvements to enhance usability!

  14. show #unread mails in subfolders

    Can you make it possible to display the number of unread emails directly on the subfolders in the user interface? I setup rules in Outlook to direct mails from particular senders to a specific subfolder. I the current situation, I have to open each separate subfolder to see if new mails are in there.

  15. Signature toggle On/Off

    Would be great to have a toggle in compose screen to turn on/off signature. Also in settings to configure signature to only go when composing a new email and not in every response
