Can Shopify receipts be sent through a local email program like Outlook?

We run a PC windows 11 platform. With a previous POS system (Quickbooks POS Desktop), we're able to email receipts via 0utlook. This enables adding product-specific information, attachments, etc. related to the item purchased.  It's also great because we can look through all email communications to/from our customer over the years.  Is there a way in Shopify to use a local email program to send receipts?  Or, is there a 3rd party mod or app (or hack) to link into a windows-based email program so we can track all emails to/from the customer?  Thank you!

Has anyone tried this 3rd party "email customer" button in their Chrome web browser?

https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/shopify-email-system-defa/kmbjeippncnbflboehfppnmdioageffl

 

It says it will "...add a basic button within every order page that says 'Email customer', and clicking this button will automatically open your operating system's default email platform with the correct customer's email ready to go. "

 

I can't be the only customer migrating from Intuit Quickbooks Point of Sale (POS) looking for a way to control my own emailed receipts...  (or am I the only one...?)

 

Curious what others are doing!  Thanks!
