Ability to choose install path

I’d like to choose the installation path.

I have multiple disks, some being low-available-space SSDs.

Not being able to choose the installation path is a real pain.


  • OS and Version: Windows 7, Arch Linux and MacOS 10.12
  • Mailspring Version: 1.2.1

Hey! Thanks for reporting this - the easiest solution right now is to symlink your Mailspring preferences / data folder (where most of the file size is once you sync your mail) to another location. I’ll see if we can make this a preference soon, though we’ll probably start by adding new sync features that allow you to limit how much is stored on disk for a lighter setup.
