Mailbox is a slick email client for the iPhone and iPad that helps you streamline your Gmail via intuitive swipe gestures. Mailbox looks similar to the standard Apple Mail client but has much better tools for managing your inbox. Swipe a message to the right, and Mailbox archives it. Swipe a message to the left, and Mailbox saves the email for later. Swiping a message to the right and holding deletes it.

One interesting feature allows you remove an email from your inbox and have it returned at a predetermined time. That's great for users who put off or forget to respond to important emails.

A better way to manage email newsletter subscription
Hi,

I think that you might be interested in beta testing our new project (our tagline is "Your inbox will thank you" ...).

With a friend, I am working on this project whose goal is to provide a way for people to better manage their email newsletter subscriptions. Closetoshop generates a unique email address for each subscription, and will send you a digest containing all of your newsletters once a day.

Your inbox won't be overloaded anymore, you avoid the frequent distraction of new mail arriving during the day, and you can easily put a stop to unwanted messages.

Just take a look at http://closetoshop.com (you can create an free account).

For more detailed information, please read the FAQ (in English) : http://faq.closetoshop.com/dokuwiki/doku.php?id=faq_en

Don't hesitate to contact us, we need your feedback !

/Xavier

re: 10 Tools To Beat Email Overload
Tools and programs are great at helping to combat email overload.

But the best way is to send less and receive fewer.
