Send via Email: Can we add any other mail programs to the list?
« on: October 12, 2013, 08:29:43 AM »
Is there any way to edit the package to include a different mail app? Currentlu using Mailplane 3 which is basically a prettier face for gmail...was trying to look through packages to see if there was a way to add it in but assume it is much more at the coding level....but just wanted to see if there is some way to add it...

It would have to offer AppleScript capabilities and then I would have to code up an AppleScript to control it.  Is it scriptable with AppleScript?

Yes it is...

Here is their FAQ on apple scripting it...

When I send the e-mails, I might be sending several images to attach to the one e-mail...

It looks promising, but I don't know when I'll have the time to work on it.
