Send Apple Mail Message

The Send Mail Message action allows you to create a message and send immediately or leave it open for further editing. Use the Create new message pop-up to choose between and send now and and leave open.

:!: Note that this works only with the Apple Mail app.

 Send Apple Mail Message

Action Form Fields

Enter one or more email addresses in the To text area and optionally add email addresses to the Cc and Bcc text areas.

Enter a subject in the Subject text area.

Select the sending address from the From pop-up. Keyboard Maestro reads the available addresses and lists them for you.

Email Body

Enter the body of the email in the empty text area. The text area expands to accommodate your text.

:!: Note that this Keyboard Maestro form field supports only plain-text. If you want to enter rich-text, you will need to do so after you run this action.

Attaching Files

To attach a file click the File Chooser button to the right of the action to select an existing file on disk. Option-click on the File Chooser button to show the currently selected file in the Finder (assuming it exists already). You can only attach a single file (if you need more than one file, it can be done with AppleScript).


Setting the signature is no longer supported (v9.0+) as it has been broken in OS X 10.12 Sierra and presumably Apple has no intention of fixing it.
