Support for a 3rd Party Mac email client

JimA

Hi,

I would love to have email integration with a Mac email client.

 

I understand that integration with Mac Mail and Outlook for Mac is not possible given the existing design of Mail and Outlook fo Mac.

 

From the HS Knowledgebase:

Outlook for Mac's APIs do not allow us to issue any commands. This means that the add-in would not be able to insert a tracking pixel or a portal's BCC address into outgoing emails.

And I hear that the HS development team is working on an integration with Office 365 for Outlook Anywhere (aka webmail). But for those of us who use Macs AND and email client (rather than webmail), can you develop an intgreation wiht a 3rd-party Mac e-mail client (Spark, Postbox, Airmail, etc...)? Do any of these have APIs that would allow HubSpot to issue commands (or whatever is necessary to create the integration)?

 

Thanks,

jim

Dear Nice People at Hubspot,

 

So.... whadaya think? Good idea — developing an integration that works with Mac clients that are NOT Microsoft?

 

Please.

Dear Hubspot team,

 

This idea has been around for a year and if my understanding is correct there is not yet any available integration with a Mac email client (I use Spark). 

 

Could you share with us if you intend to add this feature to your roadmap in the near future?

 

Thanks

+1 for Spark.... as for logging, can you not just BCC to the "secret" HubSpot address? Obviously this doesn't do much for adding contacts.

Please integrate with Airmail.  Our whole company uses Airmail.

Same challenge: although we are using Gmail services as a company, I would like to a mail client on Mac, and not have to use Gmail webmail nor Outlook on Mac which is apparently not ideal with HubSpot.

Outlook has recently released a brand new and quite amazing version for Mac that is hands down the best email & calendar client for Mac.

 

The Outlook add-In oddly requires that we connect an Office 365 email box which makes no sense. Perhaps the ability to create meetings is specific to the hosting provider, but there are MANY users of Outlook Mac who connect to Gsuite accounts (like our entire company). 

 

Even if the functionality was limited in the Outlook add-in without being connected to an O365 inbox, at the very least it would be great to see the contact and deal info records from Hubspot related to the contact. That doesn't require communicating with MS servers at all.

 

As a next "would be great", why not at least enable tracking & logging in the add-in regardless of who the email host is? I assume (perhaps wrongly) that HubSpot is leveraging the local credentials to make the API call to get generate & inject a tracking pixel into the email before it is sent to the outgoing email server.

 

I can't imagine this is a huge amount of engineering work to just put in some conditionals to allow users to have reduced functionality without the O365 inbox connection.

 

Finally, this is the kind of feature that makes HubSpot stickier because users embed it into their daily workflows versus just bcc'ing a hubspot email account.

Yes please add an integration in HS with Airmail it will be appreciated by many users !

Many CRM like Pipedrive, Zoho and Sales Force offers integration with Airmail 4. 

Thanks in advance.
