Can Tasker create a sound when I send an email?

    I have finally moved over from IOS after many years and love my new Samsung S7 Edge but one feature that I liked on iPhones was the whoosh sound when sending an email. I understand this is not available on the Samsung Email app and nether on the Gmail app. I have also been told that this could work if I set up some rule using the Tasker app but I have downloaded that and it looks very complicated! Does anyone know how to do this on Tasker???

    Anyone know if any other email apps offer the ability to provide a sound when you have sent an email?? Thanks in advance for any help!

    Hi there, I'm sure there will be some app that does this from its settings.
    I just had a look on what I use (CloudMagic) and it doesn't have notification for outgoing emails. But there are lots and lots of email apps.

    In terms of creating this with Tasker, I believe it will be too complicated for what seems a rather simple thing. My initial thought is that you need an email app that has Tasker support to easily recognise the email being sent, such as K-9 mail, but I'm not sure it it is possible (haven't used much as I didn't like it).
    I have no knowledge otherwise how this can be recognised, but I'll have a look.

    Maybe someone has a better answer in the meantime.

    When you say "email" ... exactly what do you mean? Gmail? Some app using POP? Something else?

    If done with Tasker ... un-root-ed and no plug-in ... the only way I could see to do it would be to compose the message inside a Tasker action and then execute it.
    You would find the user interface to be absurd. Like this ...

    A1: Compose Email [ Recipient(s):someone@omeplace.com Subject:Test Message:This is a test. ]
    A2: Beep [ Frequency:8000 Duration:1000 Amplitude:50 Stream:3 ]

⚙No repetitive tasks for you, let your Android device handle it!⚙
Total Automation, From Settings to SMS. Here are only some
of the things you could do with Tasker. Its real power is the flexibility to combine contexts and tasks however you wish: https://tasker.joaoapps.com/exampleuses.htmlAutomations
Make your phone a true smart
phone! Why remember to change the volume every day when you leave home when your phone can do it for you? Automate stuff based on the app you're in
, the time of day
, your location
, your Wi-Fi network
, Received SMS or Calls
, the currently playing song
and many other (130+) states and events! Check out how easy it is to create an automation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s6EAbLW5WSkActions
350+ actions allow you to truly customize your phone like never before! Send SMS, create notifications, change almost any system setting like Wifi Tether, Dark Mode, Always On Display, change any volume, control Do Not Disturb, open apps, file manipulation, control music playback, get your location... you get the idea. If you can think of it, Tasker can probably do it for you! Note: root is NOT (I repeat NOT) required for majority of the functions.
However, a few of the actions (like the Airplane Mode action and the Mobile Data action on some devices) require root. Regarding those few actions that do require root, this is because of Android security policies that developers cannot work around. ☑ Other Triggers
Manually trigger your actions via launcher shortcuts, quick setting tiles, widgets, long-pressing volume buttons, media buttons (like the ones on your BT headsets or headphones), Bixby button, Navigation Bar, Notificaitons and more! ☑ Join - Remote Tasker
