Open attachments directly

It would be nice to be able to click on an attachment and have it open with the default program rather than downloading to a folder and then having to go find it and open it from there.

Otherwise I appreciate the ability to have an easy-to-install-and-configure client that works with Exchange/Office365 so I don't have run my Windoze virtual with Outlook all the time.

Thanks,
Steve

    This is a must to be honest.
    i get 5-10 pdf's a day that i  need to verify the information in. But don't want to save on my hard drive.

    let me open that in my default pdf-reader, or predefined reader from the settings. 
    I think this is important

    I can confirm that the feature exists when installing on linux from tarball. Don't know why it is not available on the snap version, since the files are in any case temporarily saved inside the home direcotry.

    This is sorely missing. The voicemails I get forwarded from my phone system are another good use of this.

    Agreed - this is so frustrating to have to download and then open to view

    Even just opening my file manager to the downloaded file's directory would be handier than the current behavior.

    Hiri uses OS default application for the given file type. In Windows, you should click on the file and in properties tab change or define a handler. On Linux, you would put something like this in the $HOME/.mailcap:

    aapplication/pdf; evince '%s

    Also ability to open attached EML files directly in Hiri would be great ;)

    & Is Hiri doing something about this or paying no attention till we start switching to other apps that does this functionality with ease??

    Hiri, can you comment on this idea? I think a lot of people need it..

    I think Hiri is dropped from development. There was no update for almost one year. They are just trying to get as much money as they can from this dying product with their sales.

    This program SUCKS!  I can not open attachments.   ABANDON SHIP! BACK TO Outlook...which at least WORKS.
