That's true. The missing features were the reason for me to write an alternative. For me it's a "must have" to see the messages size and a preview. I cannot judge over a mail seeing only the subject.

The other app wasn't updated for a long time, so I decided to start over and make an alternative.

The next features I'm looking into are subscribing and unsubscribing.
