First time here ,
thanks to the team for the app
Some context… As an email user I do not archive any emails. So all my emails are stored in inbox.
When I connect the deltachat client it syncs all my emails and the only option I found is to delete them one by one and create the rooms for conversations.
Maybe I miss something, can you help ?
Delta Chat version
Version 1.36.4 (git: flathub)
Don’t import my whole mailbox. Just let me choose before the connection if I want to or not
Perhaps you could also leave the option of “no import” and have the user create their conversations?
Getting the team on board was very complicated because of the import. Like me, they were convinced by the interest of managing mails in a conversational format.
Everyone has been waiting for Ditching Slack Messenger.
But the mass import of messages was a negative episode.
Especially as they can only be deleted one at a time.
Asking questions to the user is always difficult, because many users just want to get on with things, and making decisions breaks their flow.
Maybe we need some way to multi-select chats on DC Desktop, though I’m not sure how the UI would look (and then, we’d also need someone from the Desktop team to implement it, who are currently understaffed).
What’s the underlying problem? I mean, if you wait for some weeks, won’t you also get 100 new chats (at least if you use email as much as me), which you have to either ignore (that’s what I usually do), or delete/archive?
