    • Implement Safe Chat

      My child does not have enough ways to interact. I suggest adding safe, chat rooms to kmail teens that can connect to gmail. This would help a lot!

        After much consideration, we have decided that we will not be adding a chat function to Kids Email. KidsEmail chat would only work with other KidsEmail users, so children wouldn’t be able to chat with users that don’t have a kids email account. We may revisit this in the future, but for now we are not planning on adding this feature.

      • Make different contact lists.

        My daughter has friends she e-mails that are in her girl scout troop and would like to be able to send out a mass e-mail to those in that list as she is the secretary this quarter. Would also be nice to have a family list and and a school friend/teacher list.

          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.

        • Allow for contacts to be grouped.

          This would be very helpful as kids often have "teams" for different projects/classes.

          • kids need notification that they got mail to eliminate the need to always check if they have mail

            It would be neat for kids to have a symbol or message stating they got new mail on there sign in page at desktop

              Notifications for mail on the desktop will not be available. Notifications on the apps are up and functioning. I apologize that we have decided not to add this at this time.

            • Draft email folder

              It would be great if there was an option for emails to go into a draft folder to finish at a later time or for a parent to preview before the email is sent.

              • 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

                • 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.

                        • 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.

                                  • support sending emails using the iOS built in mail app.

                                    On iOS I can use your app to send and receive emails but if I click on an email link from some other app, it will only support the default mail app. Other apps (like Pages) support sending documents via email. The problem is they only support sending using the default mail app.

                                    I'd like to be able to configure the default mail app to send and receive emails using the kmail.org service - that is, with the filtering and protection provided by kids email.

                                      • Create an app for the Mac (desktop/laptop)

                                        We have an iMac as a "family computer" where each child has a user account. Since we can't add the kmail accounts to their individual user's "mail" utility as a POP/IMAP account, can we at least get a mail app that also notifies them of new messages in their inbox and then opens to their account login page or inbox? I checked the Mac App Store and could not find a Kmail/Kids Email app. Thanks for all you are doing... it is a great service!

                                          They seem to be fixed in MM-DD-YYYY format, regardless of the country specified when setting up an account.

                                            This is not something we will be adding at this time. As we grow more internationally we may add this in the future, but right now we will not be adding it. Thank you for your feedback.
