Sending emails with Spark mail app by Readdle

Post by mendel-k » Thu Dec 01, 2016 4:49 pm

Hi guys, Readdle just released their spark mail app for Mac: https://sparkmailapp.com, and I'm wondering if its possible to set that as the default mail client in LaunchBar. Right now, the 'create emails with' option only has the default mail client, airmail, and a few others. Does anyone know if this would be possible? Or if there is some sort of workaround?

Thanks!

I made this AppleScript and it works great. You can save a Launchbar Action too.

Code: Select all

on handle_string(_string)
   return [{title:"1 string passed"}, {title:_string}]
end handle_string
activate application "Spark"
tell application "System Events"
   tell process "Spark"
      set frontmost to true
      click menu item "New E-Mail" of menu "File" of menu bar 1
   end tell
end tell

Thanks, this is helpful. I noticed that if I pull up Spark in launchbar and hit space it lets me insert text that would be the beginning of an email--so that may be even easier.

My only problem now is when I send a file to launchbar using shift shift (my shortcut), and then want to immediately send that to someone. If I then pull up someone's name it opens an email in airmail (my previous default). Not sure if there would be a workaround for this though.

Just make Spark your default email in Spark→preferences→general

I did, but that doesn't help. I think the issue is that in launchbar preferences itself, under actions > options, there's a setting for which app to create emails with and I can't choose Spark there.
