Mailbox Says Goodbye, Shutting Down February 2016

Mailbox app

Long standing email app, Mailbox, is shutting its doors come February 2016. In a blog post made today, the team expressed their gratitude to their users as well as provided links and tools that will help users migrate their mail and data to another mail app. Mailbox joined Dropbox in 2013 and are now focusing on streamlining users workflow and they feel email is no longer a focus area they can invest in. Read the full blog post below.

It’s with heavy hearts that we let you know we’ll be shutting down Mailbox on February 26, 2016.

Mailbox ignited a shift in mobile email and many of its innovations are now ubiquitous across the industry. It’s been a great journey, and we’re proud of this impact and grateful to the community that helped make it possible.

When the Mailbox team joined Dropbox in 2013, we shared a passion for simplifying the way people work together. And solving the email problem seemed like a strong complement to the challenges Dropbox was already tackling.

But as we deepened our focus on collaboration, we realized there’s only so much an email app can do to fundamentally fix email. We’ve come to believe that the best way for us to improve people’s productivity going forward is to streamline the workflows that generate so much email in the first place.

We know saying goodbye to Mailbox will be hard for many. To help make the transition to a new email client easier, we’ve created guides and export tools. For more specifics around how we’ll be winding down Mailbox, please visit the Mailbox FAQ.

Thank you to everyone who helped bring Mailbox to life, whether by spreading the word, letting us know what you liked (and didn’t like), or simply using the product. You taught us so much, and we’re deeply grateful.
