3. Add up to 10 Gmail, Google Apps, or iCloud accounts to Mailbox.
Yes, more client support is coming!
4. Don’t freak out about this
Your badge count reveals the total number of conversations in your inbox, not unread messages. This is because Mailbox works best when your inbox holds just the messages you actually need to pay attention to now (everything else can be archived or snoozed). You can adjust how your badge works in Settings.
5. Swipe, swipe, swipe
Manage current and incoming inbox messages by swiping to snooze, archive or delete. Snoozed emails move into the [Mailbox] folder in your web mail (Gmail or iCloud) and return to your inbox at the time you select. Remember, everything you do in Mailbox is reflected in your desktop/web mail client, so your desktop client will be as clean and delightful as your Mailbox.
6. Get to zero
Have a big inbox and and want help clearing it? Pull down on your screen and tap the “Help Me Get to Zero” button. The messages you archive are moved to Archive in Mailbox and can be found in “All Mail” in Gmail or “Archive” in iCloud. Of course, archived messages are always available via search). You won’t believe how good an empty inbox feels.
7. Focus on what matters, on your terms
Notifications should never be intrusive: they should be easy for you to control. On Android and iOS, you can change Mailbox’s notification options by opening the app and going to Settings > Notifications.
Mailbox is about focusing on the things that need your attention now; getting duplicate notifications from different mail clients on your device can make this tricky.
On iOS, you can disable notifications for any app by going to Settings > Notification Center and then tapping the app in question and selecting 'None' for the Alert Style.
Android 4.1+ also let’s you disable notifications for any app by going to Settings > Apps. Then tap the app in question and uncheck 'Show notifications'.
