myMail is the preferred email app of millions of users due to its simple design and user-friendly qualities. In fact, it became the leading email account management app for both iOS and Android within only a few months of its official launch, and the app still continues to garner new users even today.
We continue to share insights on default and alternative mobile mail clients. Today, we talk mail search systems – how they work, why it is often hard to find the message you need, and what a perfect email search should be able to do – using myMail as an example.
According to myMail internal statistics, 80% of files sent via email are images. We, too, send dozens of templates, prototypes, and screenshots every day. Naturally, we wanted to make such a common use case more convenient, — so we did. As a result, sending photos and videos via our iOS app is much quicker and more convenient than via our competitors’ apps. For example, you only need to make five taps in myMail to attach three photos to a message. This is 10 taps less than in Gmail and as much as 13 less than in Apple Mail. Let us tell you where this idea came from, and how we brought it to life.
In the previous post we briefly touched on the topic of how much a feature such as push notifications can change the way you work with your email on mobile. Today, we’ll take a thorough look at how to optimize your work with email by using push notifications in myMail. This is especially relevant for those who get many messages from different senders and need to respond immediately to some of them.
Both Android and iOS have default email clients, and, admittedly, they are okay — for somebody who does not use email very often. However, if you check your email on your phone or tablet even once a week, you will certainly not be satisfied with a pre-installed app that “can do everything, but on a basic level.” Using a default email client is like eating with a plastic fork from a paper plate: you could suffer through it, but why should you? Especially when you know there is convenient tableware out there (and user-friendly and powerful email apps).
You tweaked the margins until they were perfect. You rearranged the images several times to achieve the perfect flow. You proofread it for the 3rd time just to make sure. Then you slammed the “Send campaign” button and whoosh, your labor of love went out to the world.
Tick tock. 7 hours pass and you nervously check the stats. Only 3% opens? That’s weird. You’re used to hitting at least 15% in that time frame. You recheck. The open rates stay the same. The bad news is in: looks like your email was sent to spam.
The good news is, there are many preventative steps you can take to avoid this terrible fate. Here’s a comprehensive step by step breakdown of what you can do to make sure your email goes straight to the inbox every time.

Channeling our inner Sherlock Holmes and Sigmund Freud, we conducted a national survey on Americans’ email habits in their dating lives. Turns out they are snooping, hacking, cheating and breaking up – all over email! Many Americans are using email to spy on partners, sniff out infidelity and sever relationships. Love in the digital era is a cyber-battlefield, as our survey numbers prove: Continue reading Email’s Rocky Relationship with Love
In November 2013, we launched myMail in the US and later globally. Many have said that email is dead or dying and wondered why we would spend effort in this area. We have always believed that email is the perfect tool for communicating but had been around for a while without much innovation. It’s why we created myMail. We are not alone in this thinking for sure – and that is good for consumers as innovation in this area will continue to thrive.
Some cool things have come to myMail in the latest update!
You may have noticed something new on the myMail home screen: the Microsoft Exchange logo has been added. That’s right, myMail now supports Microsoft Exchange with Active Sync. When you tap on the Microsoft Exchange logo, the familiar screen appears asking for email address/password. myMail will attempt to connect automatically using typical connection settings. For many, this means you are done and can now access your Exchange email account.
