Is it possible to customize the alerts or badges (either will be okay) for the Mail application so that it displays Delete upon a mouse-over instead of Options --> Delete? I receive a lot of mails daily which I need to delete etc and it will be very handy to have such a simple feature. I am using MacOS Big Sur on MacBook Air M1.

    I don't think there's an exposed API to make those changes. I won't add this as an answer as I'm not 100% sure and don't want to mislead you.

  • It's probably even a duplicate of the question you link to, unfortunately there doesn't seem to be an option for this currently.

Apple would need to make a way for people to change the text or functionality of these notifications.

As of this writing, Apple doesn't expose to developers or users a way to customize these alert buttons.

You can contact Apple by completing this feedback and telling them you want this ability.
