Many people on this forum, including @ismh and @MacSparky themselves, have decried the lack of a share sheet for Mail.
I’d like one too. But thinking about how the share sheet works … it doesn’t seem so simple.
When you envision sharing an email, what are you sharing: Just the body, or the headers and metadata too?
Just the most recent message, or all the previous back and forth that is actually part of the same message document/file?
Do attachments come with the text? In-line images? Signatures and little images embedded in signatures? What about tracking pixels, which can be very hard to differentiate from some kinds of legitimate images used for spacing, etc.?
Do you just get a PDF of the whole mess?
What if you’ve selected part of a message – does any metadata / header material accompany that or not? Attachments, images…?
On iOS especially, Apple has a pretty sophisticated way to offer many versions of a shared item to wherever you are sharing it – plain text, formatted text, pdf, image, etc etc.
In other words, given email’s legacy structure, this may be more challenging than it seems at first.
I don’t doubt Apple has the technical expertise to solve this. But the design challenge seems real to me.
I don’t think it’s insoluble. But I bet if/when they eventually implement it, there’s a ton of disagreement about whether they did it “right.”
