The fast, fun mobile inbox that puts email in its place.
Note: Currently for Gmail and iCloud accounts. Other email platforms are on the way!
Mailbox is a completely redesigned inbox that makes email light, fast, and mobile-friendly. Quickly swipe messages to your archive or trash. Scan an entire conversation at once with chat-like organization. Snooze emails until later with the tap of a button — they’ll return to your inbox automatically so you can focus on what's important now.
Mailbox checks your email from the cloud and delivers it to your phone securely. Now with Auto-swipe, Mailbox learns from your swipes and snoozes to automate common actions. Mute that conversation you don’t care about, snooze messages from your friend to this evening, or route all of your receipts to a list — automatically.
Mailbox’s delightful UI and smart features make getting to zero — and staying there — a breeze. After you experience a clean inbox, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without it.
“Already the app I use most often.”

“The best email management app you'll ever use.”

Like the other commenters, I'm shocked and sad to see you go, but that's not why I'm writing. I'm writing to say thank you. Thanks for developing a beautiful and intuitive application and sharing it with us. I signed up for Mailbox on February 7, 2013. I was number 293,032. I still have the iPhone screenshot I took that day. I've been a satisfied customer ever since.
There are four main tasks I perform on a message: delete, archive, snooze, or mark as spam. In Mailbox, I can perform all those tasks with a swipe. Not so with any of the other mail applications I've used.
Based on a recommendation in your help pages, I moved to Inbox. It has some interesting features, but it's no Mailbox when it comes to efficiently performing those four tasks. In Inbox, I can swipe only two of my four common tasks. The other two require more effort to complete. I don't like more effort.
I also don't like long goodbyes. So, I've already reassigned my Mailbox snoozed and other mail, deleted my Mailbox account, and removed the app from my iPhone and iPad. I've been getting acquainted with Inbox all day. I've moved on.
So, goodbye Mailbox. And thanks again for the opportunity to spend three years with you. I enjoyed it.

So, I had actually already left a review on this app previously, but just wanted to say how sad it is to see it go. This was the most streamlined, fast, and innovative email app ever. Dropbox say the potential and purchased the company for $100 million, and are now shutting it down. What a waste.
"Inbox Zero - Every Day"
Ever since getting this app I find myself dealing with emails more quickly....I'm usually in and out in just a few minutes, and I'm reaching inbox zero every day now. Amazing....beautiful design, and it allows me to sort through mail much more quickly than ever before on a mobile device. This replaced my default mail app on day one. My only, ONLY complaint is that some apps still send emails through the default mail app. Once there is more integration, it will be perfect.
Love it! (0)

I am exceedingly bummed out that I have to find a new mail app. As the title of my original review indicated, this is/was my "favorite app"... and I mean out of all of them, not just mail apps.
I don't pretend to understand all the behind the scenes business or decision making by Dropbox, but I think every loyal Mailbox user is probably feeling just as disappointed and frustrated as I am. I can't even imagine what a loss this is for the team that designed this beautiful, intuitive app. Thanks, Mailbox team! No thanks, Dropbox.
Having an empty inbox is amazing! So much mental clutter cleared.
My only complaint is that messages are organized in the order I added them to a list, rather than chronological order of arrival. I wish I could change this in the settings as I have no interest in reordering them manually.
I'll miss it! (0)

I've been trying to find a replacement mail app, but to no avail. So sad to see this app go. As a college student I need to be on top of my email at all times and this app rises above the rest. This is the first time I've written a review because I'm so upset :(
So sad the service is shutting down. (0)

My favorite function is the delete all at once. I am sad to see them go but reading the reviews I found another email program that works very well and also has the same slide to delete all function called Spark. They don't have a version for iPad only yet, but so far that's my only complaint. It's working great on my iPhone and I have 8 email addresses. The features are as good as mailbox. If this app wasn't being shut down I'd keep it, but just wanted everyone who is also saddened by the shut down to know there is a formidable alternative out there.

Look, there is nothing else that delivers what Mailbox does. You were onto something good here.
I'd gladly pay a hefty price to keep it.
Please reconsider your decision.

The 'sunset' note said that other email apps ate now doing what Mailbox set out to do. Which one? I've been hoping Apple would make the simple update to Mail of allowing an email to snooze til a particular time or date. No such luck. Has anybody else offered those kind of capabilities? Didn't think so.
Makes me wonder why they are really shutting diwn the program

Mailbox is my go-to email app. I would gladly pay to continue using it.
I especially love:
- clean, sleek UI
- swipe delete
- swipe reschedule
I dread going back to other email interfaces.

This is by far the best app I've ever used for mail, and is one of my favorite apps overall. However, they are shutting down their services in February 2016 and I am so sad. If you're thinking about downloading, I wouldn't because they'll be shutting down so soon. I wish they'd keep Mailbox!! I've had the app since there was a waitlist and now I don't know where to store my mail!!! :(

Mailbox was first with these great features and others may have come along and took some of them. But no other apps (and certainly not the Apple mail app) can come close to the your perfect implementation. Please do us all a favor and keep this app alive.

So sad to see this app go, it has helped me organize my life for the past three years. It will be deeply missed. For the past half hour I have been trying to find something even remotely close, no luck. This is a terrible day.

Images are not loading in emails with this week's update. Please fix.
As for Dropbox sunsetting Mailbox, what a huge disappointment. It's on the scale of an #EpicFail. This is the best email app out there. If Dropbox is tired with it, then they could at least spin it off to someone who will maintain the integrity of it.
