Longer Email Preview

3D Touch – Quick Actions

3D Touch is a new addition for iOS 9 and exclusively available on the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus. If you do a 3D Touch action on the Mail icon (press in deeply on the icon) you can bring up the Quick Actions menu. From this menu, you can access the Inbox, compose a message, Search the inbox, or view Flagged items.

Create multiple “from” addresses

You can create multiple “from” email addresses under a single account. To select which one of these to use as your “From” address in emails, open Settings -> Mail, Contacts, Calendars -> Your account -> Account -> Mail and you should see a list of all your email ids. Tapping on the Email field again will let you select the default “From” address.
Note: that if you setup a Gmail account using the Google option from settings, you won’t be able to get this option. Instead, you’ll have to set up your Gmail as an IMAP account.

Automatic group suggestions

Mail keeps track of which groups of people you mail frequently, and can suggest these groups in the compose window. So if you are in an email chain with Cory, Dan, and Jordan, if you type in Jordan in the Two section, Mail will automatically suggest adding Cory and Dan to the message. A cool time-saver.

Selective Quotes

When you don’t want to have, the entire email included inside of your reply, you can simply select a portion of the original email. Tap to select the area of text and hit the reply icon in the bottom. The selected text will be included in your reply.

Open Zip Attachments

Similar to opening attachments, you can also open zipped files without the need of a third-party app. As long as the zipped file is something that your device can read and view, you should be good to go.

Change Gesture Options

You also don’t have to stay with the default settings for gestures if you don’t want. Head over to Settings -> Mail, Contacts, Calendars and find Swipe Options. Tap the option you wish to change and select an alternative in the following menu.

Simply type in some keywords from a message, and email address or even an emoji to find an email regardless of which Mail account it is located in.
