  • ┬áBasic search scope operators, such as from
  • An oft-requested “save sent mail” option for non-Gmail users
  • Separate actions for archive, trash, and delete
  • Much improved server support — if you found Geary unusable in the past on a Dovecot or other non-“cloud service” server, I’d urge you to give it another go
  • Many stability, speed, and interface improvements and bugfixes
