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).
In addition to getting feedback from myMail customers, we are always interested in how email impacts our daily lives. We asked 1000 internet users in the USA about their email habits.
In some areas, like a shift to mobile, we were not surprised. But in other areas we were amazed. We think you will be too.
In an Open Email to Email, we set our push-notifications on hold and gave pause to consider the insights from the survey.
A new iOS version for myMail has been released. Below we describe the main, new features.
- AirPrint Support
- Change Phone Number for @my.com Account
- Change or Delete a @my.com Account
- Passbook Support
Now that you have a myMail @my.com email address, here are some tips to help you get the most out of your account.
Tip #1 – Create folders
Your @my.com account comes with standard folders: Inbox, Sent, Drafts, Spam and Trash. However, you can create additional folders for storing read email and for filtering incoming email directly to folders (you’ll see why this is a good thing in tip #3).
Settings > Folders > Choose Account
Choose your @my.com account. Select the + sign and give your folder a name. Select OK. Your folder now appears in the list of folders. At any time you can edit the folder name or delete the folder. Deleting a folder will delete all messages in that folder so you will be prompted to confirm the deletion.
See how easy it is to manage multiple email accounts all from within one app — myMail. Check out this new video from our product teams that shows how ‘advanced’ features don’t have to be complicated.
