feature requests: more buttons, folder shortcuts, message header font size control

Reported by Anthony Townsend | November 6th, 2014 @ 04:01 PM

evaluating switching over from Apple Mail and finding a couple of frustrating omissions from MailMate

1) wish there were more buttons available to customize the compose window bar - e.g. Attach File, etc.

2) is there a faster way to move messages to a folder? drag/drop, contextual menu, etc. all rather klunky -why not map tags to Gmail folders?

3) font size changes do not seem to persist for message header text box.

    1. I'll note a request for an “Attach” button (Personally, I use copy/paste or drag'n'drop to the main text field). Others buttons you would like to request?

    2. Try the shortcut for “Message ▸ Move to Mailbox” (⌥⌘T) if this is not one of the “klunky” ones. It is possible to map Gmail labels to tags in the Tags preferences pane. I haven't gotten much feedback about how well this feature works, but it's described here.

    3. I've planned for a long time to replace the message header view, but I keep postponing it. The only way to change its font size is a hidden preference described here.

    Thanks for trying out MailMate.

    1. Get Mail button. thats the one i was really wanting, sorry i didnt include in original.

    2. (combining 1 and 2) Apple Mail's "Move" button with the drop down list is very very useful to me.

    3. i'll try this.

    Thanks for trying out MailMate.

    thank you for writing it. i've been telling all my geek friends that i've discovered PINE for OSX. its just a wonderful design approach.
