  1. Hi, I just made simple workflow that fetch and show emails from multiple account. This workflow use imap, so if you would like to use it, you need to turn your account's imap setting on. I hope this helps someone. https://github.com/jopemachine/alfred-simple-email-fetcher
  2. Hi! Could somebody help me to make a solution i Alfred that start up an email to myself by shortcut? E.g. ctr + z Just type ctr z and the email (to myself) is ready to send a message (email) to myself. Geir
  3. Here is what I am trying to create: 1. Keyword trigger to filter files located on my Desktop. For example a newly saved Word document. 2. Once found, select. 3. Open a list with predefined contacts (email variables) and choose a contact to email to. 4. Set the subject line to file name. 5. Open mail app and attach the file and auto insert subject line. I can make this happen with Keyboard Maestro. I wonder if this can be done with Alfred without complicated Javascript, which I know nothing about.
  4. Not sure if something like this already exists or is even possible, but since google Inbox has been put to pasture (very bummed), I'm looking to try and do the following to replace the built-in Reminder system of Inbox. Basically I want to type a keyword, say 'Reminder' and a workflow would: - open Gmail to a new message (web client) - populate 'To:' email (this would be static variable, it would not change) - populate 'Subject:' with "Reminder: " - if possible, have cursor stay in Subject input field for me to enter in text after 'Reminder: ' (i.e. "Reminder: Walk the Dog") I have a filter set up in Gmail to handle emails from me with Subject containing 'Reminder: ' Any help would be appreciated, Mike
  5. I tried to click into the sticky links about scripting and variables, and had great difficulty understanding.. I would appreciate if someone can tell me how to setup this workflow: when I type "emwk ABCDE" in Alfred, Alfred will send an email to a predefined email address "x@x.com" with the title "ABCDE" Thanks a lot K
  6. I want to run an Alfred command and it generate a new email for me, including text that I've already saved in a snippet. I run a martial arts club and when we get new members trying out I need to send them all the new joiner information after the session. So, the content is always the same, and the people are never in my contacts. I have got it working using a workflow as follows, which uses my snippet "mawelcome" to populate the body of the email: A keyword run a Script /usr/bin/oascript tell application "AirMail 3" set newMail to make new outgoing message with properties {subject: "Joining our martial arts club", sender:"my.email@myemail.com"} compose newMail activate end tell tell application "System Events" keystroke "mawelcome" end tell My question: is there a better way? I couldn't find anything that really described doing this, but I can imagine a lot of people want to do it, which made me think I was missing something obvious to approach it another way! Thank you!
  7. I've been trying to figure out why my mail isn't coming up in my search. The "exclude button" isnt checked, and I've added the ~/Library/Mail as well as the ~/Library/Messages, neither seems to yield any results. Any idea how i can get my email and messages in the search? Thanks
  8. Hi all, I write a lot of email, and would prefer to use a template to send snippets of email text. I love the Alfred "bar" where you can input whatever shortcut to get to somewhere. My question is, is there a way to trigger the bar, but instead of choosing from files / custom actions / etc., it shows a list of text templates in the drop-down I've configured? I use aText sometimes, but honestly, it's hard to remember all of the small shortcut names I've given it, and also it's pretty bad UX for something like. Thanks!
  9. I would like a way to copy the most recent file that has been modified in my file system and paste it into the active email window. My current work flow is to save a document -- word, excel, or .pdf -- and then go to the Finder and select "All my files" in the Favorites section on the left, and then sort by date modified to find the most recent file I just saved. I then drag that file into an email as an attachment. Ideally, I'd like to stay inside the composing of my email, and just press a hotkey, which would trigger a workflow that would make that most recent document magically appear in the email as an attachment. I'm new to Alfred, and have not created a work flow before. Any suggestions would be most appreciated...I tried searching the forums thinking someone would have already asked this, but was unable to find something.
  10. Good Morning, I have been working on my workflow recently with trello and a co worker, I have to constantly forward emails to them, I have two instances of my hotkey forward, which forwards the selected email to my coworker and one that forwards the message to my trello board to keep it as a to do item. I have a workflow I made with some apple script I found that forwards the email in an ok fashion (not great) but the problem is it adds my signature so my trello board is now filled with my company logo, not very pretty. I have turned off the setting for adding the signature to quoted text but it still pops up in the forward. So my question is, can someone give me a more elegant way to do this, or just help me tweak my code to make sure no signature is selected. I have created a blank signature title "none" I just dont know how to select it. here is the code I am using now ___________________________________________________ on alfred_script(q) set myComment to "xxxx@boards.trello.com" set theName to "Some name" set theAddress to "Some email address" try set the clipboard to myComment tell application "Mail" set theSelection to selection set theForwardedMessage to forward (item 1 of theSelection) with opening window tell theForwardedMessage make new to recipient at end of to recipients with properties {name:theName, address:theAddress} end tell activate tell application "System Events" to keystroke "v" using {command down} delay 1 send theForwardedMessage end tell end try end alfred_script ___________________________________________________ thank you so much for anyone that can help!
  11. I was playing around with some of the advanced features of Alfred and noticed that if I type "Email andrew@example.com" and press enter, it loads up my Gmail, and I'm off to the races! However, if I selected a file (in Alfred) and chose email, it opens my OS X email client "Mail" and attaches it there. This bug might be a limitation of what you can do with web clients, but I figured I'd report it just the same. I'm running the latest version (3.3.1) and running OSX 10.11.6 Hope that helps, Andrew
  12. Does Alfred have an email notification sound setting? I keep getting a sound when I get a new email and the developer of the mail app I use (MailMate) and can't seem to locate where it's coming from. All notifying sounds in MailMate have been disabled and the sound keeps coming. It even happens when Mailmate is closed. I've tried Soundbunny but it shows nothing when the sound occurs. link to the sound is here
  13. This workflows enables Alfred to find a temporary inbox in Mailinator by just typing the name of the inbox you want to open. How it works Use keyword Nator and press enter Type the inbox name you want to search (e.g. 'thisalfredtest') You´ll be redirected to the mailbox in Mailinator with the query you typed. >>> Download from Github <<<
  14. Hi, Readdle is close to releasing a version of their Spark email client, this time for macOS. It would be great if Alfred supports it for email actions. If the Alfred dev team need an invite to the Spark beta program, I have a spare invite that I can provide. Thank you! Bez
  15. Has anybody found a good solution to search across multiple cloud platforms from within the Alfred search bar? I came across Findo today and like what it can do, but it would be so much better if we weren't forced to log into the chrome extension or website, but rather search from the Alfred search bar. Has anybody had a positive experience with any of these types of services? Thx
  16. Hi, I am fairly new to Alfred and I am at the moment trying to discover all it can or can not do for my personal and professional workflow. Here my wonder is to understand if it's possible to search for files attached to emails ? If yes, how to do so for the Apple Mail app and for AirMail ? So far, I couldn't even find an email in fact. I have unselected "Emails" from the "Don't show" list in File search >> Search, but so far, it is not working. Any help would be much appreciated here. Regards
  17. Hi all! I'm guessing putting this workflow together is easy for the computer savvy, which I am not! I'd like to have a hotkey that: 1) Opens Postbox (my email client) 2) Opens a blank email 3) Puts a specific email address in the to: 4) Puts a specific phrase in the body (the phrase is actually a snippet from Alfred - THAT I was able to figure out!) The subject line will always change so I dont want the email sent automatically. Any help is appreciated in advance, thanks!
  18. Is it possible to search emails within Postbox 4 from Alfred 3?
  19. I use Nylas email client. When I use the build-in function to send email through my default client (https://i.imgur.com/QNHsfIB.png), it works fine in Nylas (https://i.imgur.com/wxykDqo.png). But when I want to email selected file (https://i.imgur.com/WZ2e7Uj.png), it don't use my set default email client but opens the native mail app (https://i.imgur.com/eDsMlNR.png). Is this a known bug?
  20. We could use an AppleScript like this for Chrome. I modified this simple script: https://github.com/mobjack/MacChromeCalendarFocus Still having a little trouble focusing the correct window. If anyone can help on that please let me know what's missing: tell application "Google Chrome" repeat with w in windows set i to 1 repeat with t in tabs of w if URL of t starts with "https://inbox.google.com/" then set active tab index of w to i set index of w to 1 tell application "Google Chrome" to activate tell application "System Events" keystroke "c" end tell return end if set i to i + 1 end repeat end repeat open location "https://inbox.google.com/" tell application "System Events" keystroke "c" end tell end tell tell application "Google Chrome" to activate
  21. While the case seems to be closed, I am posting this in the case I am not the only one to have experienced this. I subscribed to the "Share your workflows section" long time ago. This week, I cleaned my email inbox and there were dozens of email notifications coming from Alfred's forum with Korean characters. These were 1-2 or more months old emails. They looked like a regular notification with a regular subject line ("XXXX posted a new subject bla bla bla") but for every new subject posted I received like 5 emails. The email content was closer to spam than notification. Apparently, either something has been fixed or the spammer found better things to do.
  22. HI Sending an email doesn't seem to work. The search element works fine, but when I hit return on a contact it switches to my mail app and doesn't open a new email. This happens if I hit return on starting a blank email or if I have found a contact with Alfred and hit return. In both instances mail becomes the active app, but nothing happens, no new mail is started. I'm on the latest version of Alfred. I'm using Yosemite 10.10.3 (14D136), and Mac Mail Version 8.2 (2098) as my default mail client. thanks
  23. Hi, I'm trying to send a document via email thru Alfred. My default email client is Outlook. But it doesn't show a new email window when I try to do it. See a video here: https://db.tt/gHVeDDMO My steps: 1) Find a document 2) Right arrow to show a list of options 3) Choose "Email" 4) My email tool is shown up, but doesn't generate a new email window, neither offering to send this document in attachment. Thanks, Alexander
  24. Hi there, New Alfred user. Is there any way for me to email a file to multiple recipients? In Quicksilver I could do this by hitting the comma key on each recipient and then pressing return once I had built up my list. Thanks! Jack
  25. Hi, I regularly send emails to myself and would like to use Alfred to automate the process. It would have to create a new email and set the sender field to my email address. Am I missing an easy way to do this? Thanks! LT
