Insert Recipient’s Name in Apple Mail using TextExpander- MacSparky

It’s funny how much excitement I get out of little automations like this. Check out how to automatically insert a personalized greeting into your emails.

If you have TextExpander and use Apple Mail, I recommend trying this out. I use these scripts with nearly every email I write on my Mac.

FYI: I have this working in Keyboard Maestro, so don’t feel tied to Text Expander.

I didn’t think automatically inserting a greeting into an email would be that helpful… I was wrong!

I have been using this little automation for the past week or so and it has been very helpful. I also get some nerdy glee every time it works, so double win!

Visit MacSparky’s post to get the actual AppleScript. See my implementation (using Keyboard Maestro) below:
