Hello, I am a Mac user and since Mac OS Sierra, new message alerts are handled by the OS notification center.
Before that, it was possible to get a preview with sender, message, etc. But right now it only shows the recipient, count and sender's name:


After searching the internet I found out that apps like Airmail can handle those notifications in a much better way:

Airmail banner:

Airmail settings:

Is there any way to request this feature? It would help a lot if we could change it to see the subject and can add default quick actions.

See viewtopic.php?f=30&t=555691 (the sticky thread at the top of this forum)

The developers seem reluctant to add operating system specific features, especially for OSX. There is still no support for modifying the contents of the OSX System address book for example. But submitting a bug report requesting an enhancement at can't hurt. I did quick search and couldn't spot an existing one, but its easy to miss one if they used different keywords.

Thanks for your reply and help. Too bad development is not going to this direction.
I will try and add the bug report.
