Implement Email labels

9074329 shared this idea 2 years ago
Proposed

The webmail interface would be a lot more functional if it provided the possibility to assign labels/tags in addition to sorting emails in folders (e.g. like zoho mail). As labels are integral to my workflow, the lack of a labelling functionality is what currently prevents me from moving all my email communication to mailbox.org.

Labels are so much more flexible than folders. For instance, you can pin multiple labels on the same mail. Try doing that wit folders: you end up either copying mails, or don't remember in which possible folders you finally store your email.


Once you tried them, you can't make do without. I am surprised this isn't a feature already. Hopefully it will be soon

Yeah, this is a no brainer. We need labels. Like said, because you can stick more labels to one mail. But also because when you want to use the archive function you lose the folder structure so all sorts of mail are in one big list. Labels would create some structure in the archive folder.

Agreed, labelling (as per in gmail and protonmail) is essential for me


I cant seem to sort flags and stars easily (or obviously)


Please implement labels as its the only thing ruining the mailbox experience for me

Any plans for labels in the new upgrades?

Been trying out Mailbox. It's a nice service but the lack of labels are holding me back from switching. Labels are fundamental!

Migrating from Gmail, after 10 years using their labeling system, this is what is holding me back too.

I can leave without google labels... And I rediscovered the use of the Desktop Client, now I am using Mailbox only with Firefox, it is a nice experience and it gives me all the feature I need.

As workaround, I have created an address book per label and it is fine for me.
