095 - Hidden Mail Swipe Actions

Share this Tip

When processing mail, the same swipe actions in the index are also on the message view.

In Crunchy Tip 50, I showed you how to use swipe actions to process mail from the index view. But you can also use those same actions when viewing the message.

From the index view, tap on a message.

You can swipe right to toggle a message as unread or read.

If you swipe left, you reveal the options show more actions such as Reply or Forward, the action to archive the message or the action to flag it.

You can also use the next and previous controls at the top of the message to move to the next message so you don’t have to return to the index to process it.
