Mark Addresses and Swipe Options in Mail.app for iOS

February 05, 2015 by Gabe | [mmd] |

If you use Mail.app for iOS with several different mail accounts, here are two settings that are very useful.

Settings

Mark Addresses

This is a less commonly known option. Go into the Mail settings and look at the "Mark Addresses" option. Setting a domain here will cause the iOS Mail app to highlight any address not from that domain in red when you are drafting messages.

This is just an example. I set this to include my work domain so it's immediately obvious if I'm sending a message to someone outside of our organization. More importantly, it's immediately obvious if I'm about to send a message from my personal email account.

Swipe to Archive

Here's another one that I use occasionally. Change the swipe option for Mail.app to use "Archive" and it will send the message to the top level Archive folder of the appropriate account.
