As a user, I would like to be able to enter short abbreviations for common email closings and have them expand to full phrases. Preferably, these abbreviations/phrases would be editable so I could edit/add/remove them according to my preferences.
On MacOS, this is a system-wide feature that works in Apple Mail. For example, in Swedish, I’m able to close my email with “mvh” and have this abbreviation automatically expand to “Med vänliga hälsningar” which is a common email closing in Sweden. This expansion takes place instantenously, as soon as the abbreviation is detected. This doesn’t work in Mailspring however (perhaps because it being an Electron app?)
On Linux, I have yet to found a working software that replicates this functionality.
