The proposal is for client-side email integration such as emailjs.com integration so that users can supply their own credentials and SMTP provider and integrate email into Anytype
Describe the solution you’d like
Client-side email service credentials and inegrations with things like:
- Linking a date type column in an object with a trigger (i.e. due date triggers an email)
- Using an object as an email template
- “Send this note via email” option to send the note to someone outside the Anytype ecosystem.
Describe alternatives you’ve considered
While I would really like a good cross platform mail client, programing and maintaining it with all its quirks of mail and its security would take a lot of development resources.
I think this is more a thing for a plugin.
I would still like it a lot.
I’m also testing Skiff https://www.skiff.com/mail which seems similiar to Anytype, using E2E encyryption, IPFS, open-source etc with the advantage of email and tables.
Skiff isn‘t offline-first though but looks nice
That’s an important point - I completely missed that. I guess I assumed IPFS was always offline-first.
Anyway on the email side, it’s promising to see mail clients being created using web3 and hopefully that can be incorporated into Anytype, either in core or via a plugin so emails can be linked to objects.
