Drafts Action Directory

Email to myself

Posted by agiletortoise, Last update 3 months ago

Use this action to send the current draft as a background email, using the first line as the subject and remain text as the body of the email.

The first time this action is run, it will prompt you to enter the target email address for the action, which will be stored for use later as a Credential value. To change the email used by the action, visit Settings > Credentials in Drafts, and “Forget” the “Email to myself” credential which stores the address. The next time the action is run, it will prompt again for a new email address.
