Choose a contact/an address so that emails from that address always show up as chat in DeltaChat (and thus show notifications, etc)
Right now I’m not getting notifications if a contact sends me a new mail with multiple recipients instead of a reply to a mail I’ve previously accepted, because DeltaChat shows these as requests and I’m not getting notified about these.
Not needed as it would look exactly as it does right now
Thanks for your work on DeltaChat and freedom respecting software!
Hello, no I hadn’t, because I thought “all mail” includes more mails than “for accepted contacts”. I tried “for accepted contacts” now and that seems to be the case–I don’t even get contact requests for mails by an accepted contact, if they don’t reply to a chat (they are not using DeltaChat) but send a new mail that does include more than my mail address. To me getting all mails by my accepted contact sounds more intuitive. What do you/other people think?
Your problems with deltachat seem absolutely understandable. I’m afraid the current options don’t serve for expanding the use-cases. The options need to be slightly refactored to be able to actually allow adjusting to different use-cases…
Why would you think one needs to permanently route all emails from a contact to deltachat?
I see the permanent message grabbing as a (current) problem that interferes with regular email communication (and something to be obsoleted by a reasonable chat metric + visible email counter).
My use case is that I have certain contacts with which I use DeltaChat/want to use the chat-interface, so I want to be notified immediately about their mails/messages as with regular chats. They usually only write short messages just like chats. That we can do that without the need to use the same messenger is what I like about DeltaChat.
Interesting thing is, a few versions ago DC always showed all mails by accepted contacts, so the devs seemed to not have liked it that way, and it’s unlikely they’ll revert it. I can only hope for a setting I suppose.
