  1. Do you have a Forwarding option for when kids get older and move off kidsemail? If not could you provide one?

    My oldest is involved in Civil Air Patrol and get important communications through email. At some point in the future he is going to move off on his own and have his own email. It would be nice to have a way to forward messages until he can get his email updated everywhere.

    I understand the need for this, but we do not have this option and do not plan on adding it at this time. Usually when users transition off of Kids Email, they will simply e-mail all their contacts with their new details.

    I understand how that would be helpful but we will not be making changes at this time.

  2. Condense contacts list without photos

    If one is not putting in photos for each contact, it would be nice if the list could be condensed without the photo icons so it doesn't take pages and pages to scroll through.

  3. 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.

  4. 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 :)

  9. 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.

  10. Look and Feel for Teens like the Parent Interface

    The parent interface is much nicer then the teen interface.

  12. 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)

  13. 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.

  14. More customization for Teen emails?

    My Teen would like to be able to upload his own art and/or photos to customize his email. Is that going to be an option?

  15. 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.

    Regards,
    Brittany

  16. Add POP3 Mail Server Support

    It has been tabled previously with many positive votes. Why does my child need ANOTHER device or App to be alerted they have mail. So many existing mail programs out there. What is the backend support issue that kidsemail.org cannot overcome?

    We have decided that this is not something that will be added in the immediate future. We will look at this for a future release, but not at this time. My apologies to those that were hoping it would be coming out right away.

  18. make it work with iOS mail program

    Instead of your own app, why not set up your servers so that we can just add the KMAIL account to the iOS Mail app?

  19. Allow youth to send a request to parent to add an email address. Have a quick on click accept or deny button from message.

    My teens are always asking me to add new addresses, for example, teachers or students they are working on a project with. It would be nice if they could send me a message with the name and email address, and I could just accept or reject the request.

  20. Allow kids to edit their passwords

    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.
