email conversationsFleep interoperates with email. This means that you can include people in conversations via email, and you can also manage your emails in Fleep.

In the recent months, we have made a few improvements to email conversations in Fleep. Here’s an overview of the most recent enhancements to email conversations.

Creating email conversations

Now when you create a conversation with an email address, a popup appears with two options — you can choose to either invite that email address to Fleep or you can choose to create an email conversation with them.

We hope that this makes the experience of creating new conversations with email participants more clear — and it also gives you an easy way to invite people to Fleep.

Reply to a specific message action in email conversations

A simple yet powerful feature — you can now choose to reply to any specific email message in email conversations. Previously, you could only reply to the most recent email, and would have to manually edit the Subject and message if you wanted to refer to an earlier email message.

Now, you can simply choose the “Reply” action from the message actions for this! This does not only update the Subject line appropriately, but also adds the correct quoted message to the end of your email. Which brings us to the next improvements…

Show last email message quote in message flow and message entry box

As we are working to make email conversations in Fleep easily usable and understood, we’ve now made all quoted messages and email signatures (including your own!) visible in the conversation.

Previously, you could see the email participants’ quoted messages and email signatures in the message flow, collapsed and hidden behind a [...] button by default.

Show email headers in the message entry box

In order to make it easy to check which email address your email will be sent out from, and who your email is being sent to, you can now check this information conveniently in the message entry box in email conversations. Previously, you’d have to check the conversation members and your Email settings respectively to check such information.

email headers

Simply click on the little arrow next to the Subject line (marked with 2 in the screen shot) to expand the area, and the “From” and “To” lines become visible:

Note that all these updates are currently available on the desktop versions of Fleep only—coming soon to mobile apps as well!
