Replies to messages with labels lose their labels

If I receive a new email and add a label to it and then send + archive, the message moves from the inbox to the folder and I can see the labels applied to it.

But if I then receive a reply to the email I sent, in my inbox it shows as having no labels, so I'm never sure whether a label has been applied or not. If I've previously applied more than one label to an email, if I re-add just one label to the email in the inbox, all labels are instantly re-applied.

This isn't a problem specific to 418, it's been an issue for as long as I've been using Airmail really.

    How much time? 8+ hours? Because I had an email come in last night which still isn't showing it's label this morning.

    I have been noticing the same issues, including the bit about re-adding a label and then the others are magically re-applied. A label system is not helpful if they fall off every time a reply comes in!

    FWIW, I am running v3.2.7 (432).
