About the conversion mode
« on: November 27, 2015, 01:14:52 pm »
I love the conversion mode, but the current mode is too simple for me.

Is there any solution that I can make the conversion really like conversion, I mean like conversion in SMS so I can see all the thread just by scrolling the screen not swipe left/right? (Every single email contains full menu bar, of course, I can see two emails in a screen if one of them is short.) So scroll the screen into the the next/previous email in the conversion, swipe to the next/previous email in the inbox.

Besides, there is a really problem about the swiping left/right to view the conversion, for example, the conversion contains 5 emails, if I click into one of the 5 emails, I can swipe into the next un-related email that is not inside the 5-emails conversion. How can I make the swipe stop there if it is already the most left/right email. Of course, if I can view the conversion in the previous suggested method, just scroll the screen, the problem will not be existed.

There is an indicator at the top that  shows the message number within the thread (conversation) : 2 /5.
This way you know where you are in that conversation.

Email conversation can have messages from different people, so, the headers show that information.
No, the scrolling view of a conversation is not available.

By the way, it is conversation.

Re: scrolling a conversation up and down.

This is how Gmail does it.

It's not the only way to present conversations.

K9 Mail does it differently, so does Apple iOS Mail (can't be all bad on the iPhone, right?)

I came up with a third way (which is very close to Sony's email app on Xperia devices, as I found out later).

I deliberately did not make it "exactly like Gmail" -- what would be the point?

If someone really likes how Gmail does it, I don't mind them using Gmail app. But there are enough people who don't like Gmail's presentation of conversations.
