Usage

  • When writing a new email or a reply, you'll notice the Send Companion button in the composer window:
  • The Send Companion button will open its Preferences, where you can enable/disable the Review Alert and define the keywords for the Attachment Reminder.

AutoText

With AutoText you can compose an email from pre-configured text snippets. This is convenient when you often write the same emails. For example to send reports or provide customer support.

Dynamic Placeholders

Dynamic Placeholders are introduced in version 3.2.0.
When inserting the AutoText in your email, the placeholders will be automatically replaced with dynamic context from the email.

You can use the following placeholders in your AutoText snippets:

Placeholder Replacement
${ToFullName} When the To: field contains 1 recipient, the entire text before the email address is used. This is assumed to be the full name of the recipient.
${ToFirstName} When the To: field contains 1 recipient, the first word of the text before the email address is used. This is assumed to be the first name of the recipient.
${ToLastName} When the To: field contains 1 recipient, everything except the first word of the text before the email address is used. This is assumed to be the last name of the recipient.

Of course a warning will be shown if the To: field contains less than or more than 1 email address.

Examples
  • For a formal salutation you can use the following AutoText snippet:
    Dear Mr. or Ms. ${ToLastName},

    When inserting this snippet into your email to John Appleseed, it would be pasted as:
    Dear Mr. or Ms. Appleseed,

  • For an informal salutation you can use the following AutoText snippet:
    Hi ${ToFirstName},

    When inserting this snippet into your email to John Appleseed, it would be pasted as:
    Hi John,
