Hi,

is there any plan to implement a function for marking emails 
seen/unseen or other tags like important, etc in imps mobile view?

Best regards,
Steffen

The smartmobile view is intended to provide a way to view the messages 
in your mailboxes.  It is not meant to manage those mailboxes however. 
  Explicitly setting flags is an example of the latter.

Additionally, there is not any good UI options for allowing such an 
action.  Depending on improvements made to jquery mobile in the 
future, it is possible this could be reanalyzed if a non-invasive UI 
could be found.  But for now, this is not a priority (or even a TODO).

Are there any chance to re-think this issue? Nowadays smartmobile use 
is maybe greater than pc use and it seems a good functionality.

Thank you.

The answer to your question is right below in the text that you quoted.

I really don't understand the reasons too. What do you mean by 'to 
provide a way to view the messages
in your mailboxes' ? This is really weird reasoning, what about 
answering the message? It doesn't fit to that definition too.

UI position: Add 'Actions' button to the bottom menu panel when a 
message is opened. When it is clicked, more actions will be available 
like 'Mark as unread'.

We actually already have other UI for message management, the swiping 
of messages in the list to delete them or mark them as spam.
We could implement swipe action like in iOS where you can delete/spam 
swiping in one direction, and have other options like mark when 
swiping in the other direction.
