The new webmail app is going to be great, but there are (as expected) a few glitches in the transition. First I did a compose with the new app, but when I got to the recipient email address, there was no autofill, so I had to go to the “Contacts” list. Then I chose the recipient and clicked the “Email”. This took me to the old Compose screen to compose and send the message. To return the the Inbox, I clicked on “Webmail”, which took me back to the old webmail.
So that makes two problems: (1) no address completion (autofill), and (2) getting from the “Contacts” list back to the new Compose screen.
OK. I understand the step-wise development (being a programmer myself).
Here is another related (and broken) sequence: select a folder other than Inbox (mine is named ‘Provision’); open an email; click on the Reply icon; write the reply; send it. So far, so good; but then the area for the list of emails is blank, even though the Provision folder is highlighted and there are five messages in it.
So if I’m understanding this correctly, you’re saying that as I’m typing in the ‘To’ field, Runbox should find any email addresses from previous mails (either sent or received) matching what I’m typing, then autofill (just like the awesome new search feature).
Is that correct?
If so, it’s not working for me. I have no autofill at all for the To field, in the new webmail (it did work in the old webmail).
Not working for me.
I have 200+ messages to/from email@example.com, all in a dedicated folder. When trying to compose a new message to this correspondent, I start typing leav in the To: field and nothing is found. lea finds another address with this string included, but again not the one I’m after.
Ok, here’s a related issue, I can submit a new thread if needed…
When I use the autofill for the ‘To’ address, once I select the email, I am no longer able to tab past that field. Tab is just stuck on that field - have to use the mouse to click on a different field.
Whereas, if I manually type in the ‘To’ address without selecting the choice(s) that autofill gives me, I can tab forward (and backwards) through all the fields. So after manually entering the address I can tab through CC, BCC, Subject, on down into the message body.
Am I doing something wrong, or is this the way it’s designed to work after autofilling?
