Feature Request: In the auto-complete dropdown, Show Address Type/Label in addition to Contact Name

Reported by Terry McCall | January 20th, 2016 @ 02:34 AM

I was wondering if it was possible to have an option to show the label/type/kind of the email address in the auto-completion drop-down, in addition to the name of the matched contact. As is shown in the screenshot, I often have contacts that have multiple email addresses, but because the addresses themselves are so similar (the blurred text is just a string of numbers), I am unable to tell which address is which.

So in the screenshot, the dropdown items would appear like:

(Forgive me if this is a duplicate, but I'm not sure what the exact terminology is, and didn't find anything in my searches for complete/completion/dropdown).

    If you send an email to “Todoist (Inbox)” then it should show up with the parenthesized part in the future. MailMate bases its completions on the most recently used addresses in “Sent Messages”. Alternatively, you could create a Todoist entries in Contacts, but note that these have an artificial age of 30 days when compared to anything found in “Sent Messages”.

    I guess MailMate could have a third source of email addresses for completion: A simple text file with addresses (names and addresses) which always take precedence over Sent Messages and Contacts...
