What Being Featured on Product Hunt Feature Taught Us

Posted by Christin on January 7, 2016

This post was originally published by Medium.com Your CEO is in Asia, your CTO is in Europe, and your marketing team is everywhere in between. So, what do you do when you find you’ve been hunted? In this post, I will go into how we discovered we’d been featured on Product Hunt, and how we came together to get over 100 upvotes for the day and attract over 1000 new visitors. First, a little background. Mailbird is a Windows-only email client designed to make you more productive by bringing together all the apps you use to communicate, plan, schedule, and incorporating them into one easy to use platform. Over the past 4 years, we’ve continued to evolve the client by adding a fresh new look, speed optimizations, enhanced email account support, and more. To date, over 500,000 people have tried Mailbird, and our growth continues to be nothing short of amazing. The main reason for the success of Mailbird has been our amazing team, which includes members from all across the globe. Reaching across the world has not only allowed us to search out the perfect people for every role, but it also allows us to more easily expand out email client to international users. However, this global team distribution can also present problems when attempting to capitalize on something like a Product Hunt feature. Especially, when it’s not something you are expecting… Gah! We were just hunted on Product Hunt That was the message I shared with my team members…

Email remains the most wide-spread & commonly used form of communication amongst businesses in the entire world.

Posted by Christin on July 6, 2015

Mailbird brings control back to your inbox How nice would it be to be able to say, “I am on top of my emails and in total control of my inbox”? We at Mailbird believe you should be able to say that every single day. That is why we have implemented – Unified Inbox Plus. Another great time saving feature helping you get through your emails like a productivity machine. Unified Inbox Plus in Mailbird is more than just combining messages from all your different accounts into one beautifully simple, well-managed inbox. So let’s say you have a Gmail account for your work email and a Hotmail account for your personal email. Unified Inbox Plus in Mailbird, makes it so that you are able to view emails delivered to both accounts in the same inbox. Inbox Zero has never been so close   If you currently use Mailbird, when you update you will notice a new account has appeared above your individual accounts in the left menu. Say hello to the hexagon icon, this is Mailbird’s Unified Inbox Plus. This shows up if you have more than 1 email account added to Mailbird.   The emails in that inbox are shown by the order in which they are delivered, regardless of which account they are from. They are not separated or labeled.   The unified inbox contains all of your known system folders (archived, sent, trash etc.), but the folders themselves contain all messages from all your accounts. To keep it clean and uncluttered, your “unified archived” folder will now…
