I guess it would be possible to add that as a feature, but while waiting for the app to actually get the feature, you'll probably have to use UI Interaction instead.

Hi

i tried a UI interactino but cant figure out how that would be able to do what i want, any ideas ?

Thanks for the tip about the tasker plugin, how do i use that in MD ?

Is there another location to DL the plugin, i dont know that site in the link

thanks

thanks, i an now doing that, but dont understand what to put in "smtp configuration name" field - is it the gmail putgoing server like smtp.gmail.-com ?
Nothing happens as i test the action.

EDIT: i missed to setup the tasker plugin it works now. But what does not work is that if i test the action a mail is just send and not intercepted.

I enabled "read confirmation"

What am i missing ?

It "should" be straight forward
If it sends the mail, it works
It must be in the other end somethings wrong, I have never used "read Confirm action" so I don't know about that
I'm using this plugin regular and no problems

well it sends the mail but that was not what i wanted. I wanted to send a mail upon a trigger but launching the mail before sending allowing me to input text - like pre-populated SMS

is that not possible with this plugin ?

If its just for sending mail thats already possible within MD without this plugin from tasker

Otherwise i dont understand what the setting "confirm action" does ?

Now I'm a little lost here
I thought you wanted a mail to be sent with a prepopulated text when it got triggered by something
Now you want to write text before sending
I don't quite understand your needs
Am I missing something

Pre-populated feature for sending a SMS works like this: it sends a SMS with a pre written text but is halted prior to sending showing me in a popup what is going to be send, but gives me the option to change the text. That is what i want to achieve for triggering sending a email too, sorry if that was not clear.

How can that be done ?

The idea is that Pushbullet is unreliable therefor i send files from my phone to PC via onedrive and MD creates a mail based hereon notifying me on the receiving PC via a mail, but i want to insert text into this mail as i want ti describe what the files are for

Foregive me if I'm stupid
But how does MD get the information about which files you are sending to onedrive and how is it sending the mail?
Screenshot ore something might help

you are not stupid definitely:). My setup works like this

i select files and chose "share" to onedrive. The notification triggers an MD action of sending a mail til a outlook address in windows 10 mail client which notifies me upon booting the PC that files has been send and where to download them from onedrive. I have a NAS that automatically sync specific onedrive foldes to local folders. That wah i cas share files from hpne and get notified when i start the PC after coming home
