This is a very early stage of a planned full featured E-Mail Client running in Sublime Text.

I started this package, because I need VI-Keybindings in mails, and I often only switch away from Sublime Text for reading and writing Mails.

For now this package supports:

  • Writing and Sending Emails (including attachments)

Security Considerations

Using this package, you put your email-account credentials into sublime-text configuration. Even if there is provided an interactive login opportunity and passwords are not stored, it is easy for other plugins to find out credentials.


For using secure transfer on Linux, you need SSL or SFTP package.


I recommend to use Preferences Editor for configuration. You have to configure at least:

  • email_account_default_identity -- your email address, e.g.:

    Kay-Uwe (Kiwi) Loerenz <>
  • email_account_default_smtp -- your email account, e.g.:



There are following commands already working:

  • E-Mail: Write E-Mail

  • E-Mail: Send E-Mail

  • E-Mail: Send as Attachment

    Open a new mail, with current viewed file listed as attachment

  • E-Mail: Send as Mail

    Open a new mail, with current selection as email-body. If nothing selected, the entire content of current view is taken.


For adding attachments, simply list them under "Attach:":

    - /path/to/first/attachment
    - /path/to/second/attached_file


  • I also started to implement an IMAP client, which will be added soon.
  • Addressbook is in work

Set up Menu Items for Preferences and E-Mail, I am not sure if it is appropriate to have a main-menu-entry of "E-Mail".

Published initial version. Sending E-Mails is supported.
