Since a lot of work has been done on Postler recently that pretty much fulfilled my old mockups, I decided to change this to just a single screen that covered some things that haven't been implemented yet (like attachments).

-- Disclaimer --
Just because something is mocked up, doesn't mean it'll go down like this. It's just an idea.

But, But.. I heard Postler is being dropped? So that means these UI mockups and their respective implementations are void. Maybe you should now make an alternate mockup for Geary.

I might post a few designs for Geary, but for the most part it'll inherit the visual work that was done for Postler and we'll just make small refinements from there.

Really like those rounded corners on the bottom part of the window! It gives out more style! I want to see an email client like this!

really nice! I hope reply text area gets resized when you click on it to type something :)

Do you ask this for every Elementary mockup you see? I've seen this like 3 times

It looks like you took all of my good suggestions and even the disclosure triangle from my little Postler mockup. I love the way you changed the blue unread dot to a number. The number of unread messages in a conversation is much more useful than the number of total messages. Nice work.

Must-have!! It's beautiful :)

Now that Oneiric is getting smoothly rounded corners on the windows, will Elementary go for that too? It makes all the difference :)

Anyway, looks awesome as always!
DanRabbit's avatar
Definitely. I'm anxiously waiting for Cimi's work to land so we can use it too :)

Also, I suggest a "Reply in New Window" option. Sometimes you just want to reply fast, but other times you need a full window to write a more elaborate response.
DanRabbit's avatar
The text filed expands as you type, so you can write as much as you want :)

I haven't received Postler updates in a while. Is the dev PPA still being updated? Or is this just too unstable to be packaged?
DanRabbit's avatar
Postler hasn't been building in the daily ppa for a while for some reason, but it's still being updated in git quite frequently.
ArturoIlhuitemoc's avatar
It won't build because it says I don't have valac installed, either with or without the --disable-gtk3 flag. But I do have it installed. What's the problem?
DanRabbit's avatar
I couldn't tell you, I'm not a programmer :) I would advise checking out #postler on irc.freenode.net

How will react mails from comercial or other things with lots of pictures and HTML ?
DanRabbit's avatar
They render great :)

You can double-click the message to make it appear in its own window, or you can simply maximize the window using the icon on the top-right. The HTML content will display within the content area, similar to how it works in Gmail.

Will it be possible to write an email in a new window or are we limited to the small Reply field?
CassidyJames's avatar
A little button to open the reply in a new window would be nice, considering we have the compose dialog already. It might even work to do that through Contractor; not sure though.

It's really nice to heave the IM like mail thread, but I would still like to be able to write a long reply in a separate window while I browse the rest of my emails :) btw, the attachment links looks great! Get them implemented! :P

I like this, its alot better looking than the (current?) interface for postler.
