  1. Mail aliases

    It would be great to support mail aliases for those who owns domains.
    I have a mail redirection like this: (I changed real names)
    XXX@YYY.fr -> XXX.YYY@kidsemail.org
    So my family can use XXX@YYY.fr (YYY.fr is our own domain) to talk with my daughter.
    But when she reply, XXX.YYY@kidsemail.org is used where I want XXX@YYY.fr to be used.
    It would be great to have a setting to handle this scenario.

    • Allow several emails addresses for the same contact in the contact list

      The same person can use distinct email addresses (like for work, personal, etc). Having distinct entries in the contact-list is not convenient for a kid, please allow multiple email addresses for one contact. At least leave the UI as-is but allow us to enter multiple addresses separated by a comma or another delimiter

                This isn’t something we will be changing right now, perhaps in the future. If your child doesn’t like that login page they can login at www.kmail.org

                We can discuss this with the Developer and see what he thinks. Kids Email can be used on our app as well, search “Kids Email” in the app store and download on your device. The “ugly” monkey isn’t on the app :)

              • Streamline the Contacts

                In the teen version make it so you can type in the name of one of your contacts instead of the email address.

                  The parent interface is much nicer then the teen interface.

                    • give option to receive a digest of email activity (instead of ccing every single email)

                      I suggest the parent be able to request automatic email of periodic digests with selectable interval AND/OR ad hoc digests on the website (or app) that show all activity since the last request for ad hoc digest. Digests would be most useful if the were processed using keyword search to push items with questionable content to the top of the list. Ad hoc digest requests should also be presented in an interface that allows for resorting by different criteria (date, size, sender, etc)

                      • Allow better attachment options in app, i.e. short video or audio clip

                        Tocomail allows kids to add a 10 sec video clip or an audio clip. Would this be possible to add to the app? Kids love independence and would like to be able to do these things from their tablets.

                          • Add feature for parents to approve OUTGOING emails from younger children before they go out

                            Add a safety feature for younger children whereby their OUTGOING email is sent to the parent for approval before it can go out. Right now my young one is sending a lot of jibberish to family members which could get annoying. I would like the ability to approve or delete message before they go out.

                              We have decided that this is not a function we will be adding in the near future.

                              We do have it listed as a possible idea for a future release, but have decided we won’t be making the changes to Kids Email to have this function.

                              We appreciate you submitting this great idea, and if we meet at a later date and decide to add it we will let you know.

                                    We do not allow direct connection to our servers (architecture decision). We provide mobile applications for this purpose.

                                    I’m sorry that this isn’t something we support or plan on adding at this time.

                                      Allow kids to edit their passwords. Whenever kids want to change their password, they have to ask a parent to. My idea is that you should allow kids to change their passwords, but email the parents the new one.

                                      • Add a native Windows 8 app

                                        Now that windows 8 is out it would be nice to have a windows 8 application instead of using the web based version. Something more native to the functionality of windows 8. Touch controls would be nice for windows 8 tablets. My kid's school is requiring a windows 8 tablet and it would be a nice added feature.

                                          I guess this is something we have not decided to do quite yet. It may be something we will revisit in the future, but right now we will just offer the apps on Android and iOS.

                                        • Provide an option to review my child's emails before they are sent to others

                                          I would like to be able to read and review my child's emails before they are sent out. Sometimes children do not realize that what they intend to type is not always the same as it can be read. Being able to approve or deny outgoing messages would be great. It would give parents the opportunity to have the email revised by their child if needed.

                                            We have decided that this is not a function we will be adding in the near future.

                                            We do have it listed as a possible idea for a future release, but have decided we won’t be making the changes to Kids Email to have this function.

                                            We appreciate you submitting this great idea, and if we meet at a later date and decide to add it we will let you know.

                                            Regards,
                                            Brittany
