ZeroMail offers users an email service “done right.” The application provides the user with specialized views that remove the unwanted automated emails and other clutter that the user doesn’t need to see. The user is left with a list of real mail from actual people rather than generated messages and spam. The application includes features to assist with productivity as well. Emails and tasks are viewed as one in the same and can be applied to projects. The user can also add them to schedules or archive the ones they no longer need. A snooze and flag option is available as well so the user doesn’t forget to return to a message that needs attention later. Emails are displayed in a uniform format regardless of what style they arrived in. Additional features include au to save, conversation view and compressed salutation.Show more screenshots »
ZeroMail was founded by Katrin Suess and Bart Jellema. The application was intended to make email fun and convenient. The current version helps users easily sort through messages by breaking out the important missives and filtering automatically generated messages. The user can transform their emails into productive assets by applying them to projects or a schedule. The current version has been met by positive reviews because of its many features and convenient design.
ZeroMail uses an intelligent filtering system to ensure that the user is given only what they really need to see and no clutter in their inbox. The application has many appealing benefits, however some have complained that the lack of a free trial is a bit off putting for some users. The fee may be intimidating, especially considering how many free competitors that are already popular. After purchasing the service, many found that it lived up to its promise of making email fun as well as more convenient for the user.
The ZeroMail user interface is streamlined to allow the user to be as productive as possible. The pale background stays low key as the user accesses email content formatted to their liking. The dashboard view shows the user recent messages over a collection of notifications. Each notification is accompanied by a color icon that displays the logo related to it (such as Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook). Separate boxes are available for group posts and newsletters. The user has many viewing options that transforms the standard email into a comprehensible discussion.
A new user can create a ZeroMail account by clicking the blue “Sign Up” button along the right hand side of the homepage. A sleek pop up box appears with the price and terms of service. The user must check the terms of service agreement box at the bottom of the pop up to continue. The user is taken to the Paypal payment page where they can supply their billing details as well as a first and last name, address, phone number and email address. Users with a Paypal account can simply log in to complete the purchase.
ZeroMail is currently in beta and offering a special lifetime standard account for the first 100 users to purchase the service. The standard account includes access to all current features. Rather than require a subscription, the user only has to pay a single fee of $100. The price seems high, but the user never has to pay another cent for access to their Zero Mail account. The site mentions that additional features will be added later but does not note what the standard price will be once ZeroMail leaves beta.
ZeroMail is ideal for anyone who is serious about cleaning up their email. It is mainly appealing for anyone who uses email very frequently and suffers from inbox overload. The user can easily sort the good from the bad using ZeroMail. The price may be a bit intimidating for some, but it is a one-time fee so the user never has to make another payment to use the application.
