Want an email to Prowl gateway? Good. Now there's an official one. Combined with the new multiple API key support, you can the API keys addresses to services with confidence.

More information on the Prowlmail page.

For the same API key, if you wanted a priority of -2 (very low) you would do

Awesome!

Just a small correction, wouldn't it be:
abc+-2@api.prowl.weks.net
for "very low" priority?

Here's another nitpick typo.

[-2, -1, 0, 1, 2]

Haha, good catch. Fixed.

Moved the API key the message was sent to, to the end of the subject, and only show the first 6 characters. The chances of the hash colliding in the first 6 characters is pretty low, especially for the same user, the odds are pretty strong against it. So, it's much cleaner.

This can also let you set up a redirect on the API key, so if the service sends messages from oddly different addresses (or multiple services send messages) you can still redirect based on API key.

Incoming messages from Google Voice are now parsed a bit to clean them up.

Hi guys,

I'm not sure if this is possible, but I'd like to use prowlmail to send a task to Omnifocus (some apps, like Reeder, don't have a send to omnifocus feature but have a send an email).

Omnifocus is already one of the Prowl redirects, and I know the custom url structure (omnifocus:///add?name=hello%20world&note=text%20and%20http://example.org/%20link).

Is it possible to pass the body of a prowlmail email to the custom URL? This would be great if I can do it, and a bit simpler than the Omnigroups email to omnifocus current workaround.

Update: I came up with an alternate solution: Omnifocus' send-to-omnifocus solution results in an email send back to you with the proper Omnifocus URL in it. I created a gmail filter to automatically forward these emails to my Prowlmail email address (and skip the inbox & mark as read & never important). Is it possible to have Prowlmail strip these emails to the bare link and automatically redirect to the given URL?

Thanks!

Is there a way to suppress the display of this (partial) key entirely? I'm just using Prowlmail for simple push notifications to my iPhone upon new incoming emails; it's enough for me to see the sender and subject and maybe he first bit of the message body, but always having my 6-character hash "(beb414)" on the end looks a bit ugly.

Hi,

Prowlmail doesn't seem to work with negative priorities? It works fine for a priority of 2, 1, or 0. But when I send an email with a priority of -1 or -2, Prowl keeps playing the sound for Normal Sound instead of Moderate Sound or Very Low Sound. Anyone else have this problem?

Don't forget the + before the priority value. The + doesn't denote positive priority, it's just the separator token.

Thanks. I do have the +. Without it no sound would play since the email address is not the right syntax. I can leave everything else in the email string the same (including having the +) and it works fine with the other priorities. But with +-1 and +-2 it plays the +0 sound. Am I the only one having this problem? Can someone else do a quick test? Thanks.

Can you paste the email address you're using (change your API key to x's if you'd like) so I can see what you mean?

Hi. Sure. I thought it was failing because I was doing it in a script and passing the wrong value. But even when manually creating the email it plays the wrong sound.

From Applescript:
make new to recipient at end of to recipients with properties {address:"xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx+" & priority & "-nobody.strip@api.prowlapp.com"}

Manually
xxxxxxxxxxxxx+-2-nobody.strip@api.prowlapp.com

If I'm not mistaken, that should play the "Very Low Sound", but it doesn't. It plays the sound I have set for "Normal Sound".

Thanks,
Ken

[Edit: Took out some of the x's so the email address link wouldn't get shortened in the forum post.]

Hi zac,

This syntax works fine for you to play the correct sound? Is it just me?

Thanks,
Ken

I haven't had the chance to investigate the issue just yet. I'll try to fix it tonight if I can reproduce it.

Doesn't look like this was answered...I have the same question, for the same reason.
Can we have an option to turn off the hash on the notifications, please?

I'd even like the ability to turn off the sender, since in my case I'm always the sender.

Negative priority should work now. Give it a shot please.

You can now use the option 'nohash' to not append it to the subject. Be careful though, you might not be able to figure out which API key is getting spammed if the email is used for it.
