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.

What's New in Version 2.4.1
- Bug fixes and performance improvements
One feature away from a 5 star review!
I REALLY REALLY want to love this app but it's missing one KEY time saving feature... A Bulk Selection/Activity tool! PLEASE PLEASE for the love of all good add a BULK SELECTION feature. You add that and this will be the absolute best mail app hands down. I don't always have time to sort my emails and I don't always want my emails auto sorted so you can imagine the huge amount of time waisted trying to sift through and sort 100's of email manually. Please add this feature so that I can stop my search for a replacement mail app. It's just one small feature that will make a TON of difference and I'll have no problem rating you with the 5 stars you'll deserve!
Nice but missing features
While this has some nice features, it is missing some key ones that make it a poor substitute for Apple Mail, at least for me. Firstly, I cannot find any way to search for emails by sender, content, or anything.
Secondly, I have multiple mailboxes on iCloud and there is no way to access them to view their content or to move messages to or from them.
Thirdly, although not critical, setting up gMail was not straightforward. Unlike in Apple Mail, you have to tweak your gMail account to show all mail boxes. This not automatically done by Mailbox and the error message was not very instructive. There is a HELP for configuring, but it took me a while to find this and figure out what the problem was.
Fourthly, you can only set up iCloud and Google mail accounts. I use Outlook after learning that Google scans all mail you send and receive.
Bottom line, for me at least, I see no compelling reason to use Mailbox over Apple Mail for iOS.
NOT recommended for iPhone 4
Somehow I accidentally sent my entire gmail inbox to later. When I brought it back, only old emails arrived back in the inbox. Everything for the last month was gone. I later found them in the Mailbox archive, but also included were sent and deleted emails. I had to individually unarchive 100+ emails to get them back into the inbox. Also lost the gmail inbox labels (tab info) so I now need to move them manually or figure out a way to rerun my filters on the inbox. Three hours in this process so far without a response from the Mailbox/Dropbox help desk.
