Mailbird – Best Email App for Windows 10

Finally, Mailbird for Windows 10 is Here!

…and has been delivered to millions of PCs and devices of patient users all over the world already.

Microsoft has announced it to be the best and most beautiful Windows yet, that makes you a master at multi-tasking and adapts to you and your behavior transforming your PC in to your personal assistant.

It introduced new technologies such as Cortana integrated in the new web browser Edge, which allows you to write or type directly on web pages and now Microsoft is taking the PC experience to a new level.

We believe you need an email client that matches the new, beautiful appearance for Windows 10. An all-in-one communication and productivity suite that can keep up with the most productive Windows ever , putting old-fashioned and cluttered clients out of business. Welcome to the Windows 10 version of MailbirdIt’s glorious.

Feedback on Mailbird for Windows 10 has been awesome, starting in just the first hours of the launch. Many Windows 10 fans are complaining about the native Windows 10 email client, saying that it has been disappointing.


Q: What brought you to Mailbird in the first place?

A: Because Windows 10 default email client fails at “Email Privacy Tester” and at displaying quoted messages from Mac’s email client.


After trying Windows 10 Mail, I still prefer Mailbird over Mail 🙂 Mailbird feels more minimalist, lightweight, and has better shortcuts. Also, Mailbird shows all mail in the same thread on the same page, which Mail doesn’t.


Q: What is the most important feature of Mailbird?

A: Perfect Windows 10 Integration!


Recently, I migrated to Windows 10 and I was torn away with the limitations of the Windows mail app. That’s when I told myself enough is enough and I started searching for a new mail app. So I headed to Google search and started looking for the “best windows 10 mail app” and there it was “Mailbird” popping on the first page. At first, I was hesitant to upgrade to the Pro version so I started the trial version while watching the video of getting started with Mailbird. I kept smiling as I learned about all the great features and shortcuts. By the time the video ended; I was completely sold! I went right ahead and purchased the Mialbird Lifetime package. Thank you Mailbird and I cannot wait to share this app with friends and family.


Mailbird Updates

Not only have we improved the speed in which messages are being send, especially from slower servers. We also added a new Auto Layout Feature.

With this cool intergration, your Mailbird adapts its layout automatically when rotating your tablet. (Please note, that it will only work on tablets.)

Its all about the screen

The Mailbird All- Star development team has been working hard to improve the Touch Screen Support in Mailbird. Even though it is not native, you will be able to enjoy Touch support using Mailbird in Windows 10 and LOVE it.


New OS, New Apps

We also added a new App called Degoo.

Degoo is a free backup service that gives users automatic, secure online backup in exchange for sharing some of their unused hard drive space. This comes in very handy for people that have to send out large number of files in one email. Find out more about Degoo in our next blog post.

Activate the Degoo App in your Mailbird Appstore

Do It

Update to Windows 10 now and simply swipe away all your email problems once you get on Mailbird – one of the best apps for Windows 10.

Mailbird – Best Email App for Windows 10

Email client worth downloading -end of blogpost

  • So far the best client in Windows… clean, minimal and functional. Support has been great. They had not only solved an impending issue I had faced through active updates, but adapted a few suggestions I made too. Still there are many features that are left to be adapted to make MB perfect and I am sure they will soon.

  • Jacob Smith

    very nice features you guys added. I’ve switch to this a few months back and havent even used gmail website to check my email since then XD
    Love the mailbird app 🙂

  • Shyuan

    I’ve updated Mailbird to the latest version on my Windows 10, but I did not see the auto layout option. Am I missing anything?

    • It will work only if you are using a tablet.

  • Saeglopur89

    Loved W8 and W8.1 Mail App but since W10 it’s a nightmare. So happy that I found Mailbird! Full Outlook app is getting better but even a 2016 preview is just a mess :/
    Massive THANK YOU from Poland! 🙂

  • Christin

    Hey guys, thanks for your awesome and loyal support, that really means a lot to us. We are always looking for motivated and supportive Alpha Testers like you are, so let me know if you are interested:-) Have a great week.

  • Viniter

    Are you going to look into W10 Action Center / Tiles integration? Really that’s the only thing W10 Mail App has going for it.

    • Christin Baumgarten

      Hey Viniter, thanks or your feedback. we are actually looking into that, but can not guaranty that it will be possible. We will keep you guys updated on that though;-) Happy Friday.

  • Mikkel S.Dysted

    I’ll love it, but since the last update yesterdays I haven’t been able to launch the program. I am using windows 10. Do you have any solutions? I try to reinstall but that did not help. I miss my mailbird!

    • Abraham Ranardo Sumarsono

      Hi Mikkel

      Have you tried to restart your Windows? Also, could you check your Task Manager, to see whether Mailbird.exe is running or not. Lastly, is there any error message pop up when you start Mailbird?

  • Marco Nunes

    No google calendar notifications..

  • AbrahamDowell
  • Tim Allen

    can anyone tell me : does Mailbird have the “Unread email” across accounts like win live mail had. i.e. showing all unread emails from all 3 of my email accounts without having to switch between them.

    • Christin Baumgarten

      Hey Tim, yes, there is 🙂 we have Unified Inbox, where you can access all of your emails from all accounts in one inbox and you can enable that you would like all unread messages at the top of the inbox 🙂 Let us know if you have any more questions about that. Happy Friday:-)

  • I am really enjoying W10 much better than W8!!

  • MichaelPerkins

    Ill give it a shot

    I use Google apps and found mailbird to be one of the most resposive IMAP clients out there. Particularly when dealing with chunky inbox’s!

    • Christin Baumgarten

      Thanks for your awesome support and feedback Jake. Let us know if you have any questions that you may need help with.

  • Jeffrey

    I like the new version of Windows. I must admit thought that for me, it was rather hard to get used to all of the changes in this new version.

  • Mohamed Fawzy

    I seriously needed this after my Mail app kept giving me errors

    • Christin Baumgarten

      Thanks for your feedback and support Mohammed:-)

    At first didn’t like it as so different but learing to like

  • Martine

    Windows 10 is definitely a nightmare; know people who had to take their computer to a pro to have it taken down and they lost everything on their computers. I was lucky that I was able to uninstall it before it damaged my computer.

  • Licia Miles

    I love windows 10!

  • Jeena Bittenbender

    Been using Chrome to access my Gmail. Win 10 email client is a dud…

    • Christin Baumgarten

      Should you ever get tired of it, give Mailbird a try:-) It is free and will soon launch the Import feature from other clients, that will make the move very easy:-) Happy weekend.

  • Ling Cheung

    Love the layout and hoe the mail are organized .

    • Christin Baumgarten

  • sandra

    the main thing I like about windows 10 is the ability to get to the start menu more easily compared to windows 8

  • Windows 10 is really not bad. Mailbird on the other hand is really excellent, compared to other M$ alternatives!!!

    • Christin Baumgarten

      Thanks Wilbur and welcome to the Alpha-Tester family;-)

  • TomSix404

    Will be trying Mailbird 🙂

    • Christin Baumgarten

      Welcome to the family Tom:-) Let us know at support(at) if you have any questions.

  • Alex Algebra

    It’s good to know Mailbird is available if/when I make the upgrade to 10! I’ve been holding out because I heard 10 is a nightmare, but I’m hoping they’ll get the bugs out and it will be decent 🙂

    • Christin Baumgarten

      Hey Alex, thanks for your comment. Good news for you, Mailbird works on Windows 7 & 8 too, so you don’t need to update to W10 to try Mailbird;-)

  • jenni104

    Seriously looking into Mailbird but first I need W10 to get some bugs fixed. I have to boot up in safe mode at least onc a week to get W10 to work or I get the Cortana windows error a lot of people seem to be getting.

    • Christin Baumgarten

      Thanks for your feedback Jenni. Yes, we do have a lot of people saying that. Feel free to contact our support, if you think there is something that we can help you with;-) Have a great day.

  • sonnetdog

    Windows 10 email is difficult for me to use. Mailbird may be a great choice

    • Christin Baumgarten

      Welcome to the family:-) Let us know if you have any questions.

  • Steve Reddington

    I tried it on Win 8.1 first. It seems the same on Win 10 to me.

  • Stefan Metodijev

    The app looks very much like the MSFT Mail app…

  • Lori

    I don’t have Windows 10 unfortunately I haven’t been able to upgrade. I’ve used 10 before and love it, it’s so much easier. Wishing for the best. Great site you have very good information.

  • Leo Ching

    Tried the free upgrade from W8.1 to W10 but had endless issues with computer crashing and restarting. Finally did a fresh install and it’s crashing less but still restarts for no reason from time to time. So annoying.

  • Carol Blevins

    Wow, can’t believe I never heard of Mailbird. I will definitely investigate further.

    • Christin Baumgarten

      Welcome to the family. Let us know if you have any questions:-)

  • MK

    What about spam filters?

    • Christin Baumgarten

      Currently you can not set the in Mailbird. You can set them in your webmail and it will be applied to your mails in Mailbird. Let us know at support (at) if you have any more questions.

  • Wendy

    I decided to wait to upgrade because so many people had issues. and I’m still waiting lol.

  • Angela bauer

    It’s working out really good so far

  • Melinda Berlin

    I prefer Windows 8.1 & I have paid a guaranteed for life price of $19.95 for yahoo email for the past 4 years. I prefer paying it, not having ads to deal with & 24 hr tech support although I’ve only needed it twice. I am loyal to yahoo as I was one of their first original 10,000 email account holders back in 94/95 I think.

    • Christin Baumgarten

      Hey Melinda, thanks fro your feedback and WOW one of the first 10.000! This is awesome:-) If you should ever consider managing your Yahoo mail in a desktop email client, you should give Mailbird a try. Our current Yahoo users are very happy with it 🙂 Happy Monday:-)

  • Sharon

    It is about time.

  • Ashley

    Loved my Windows 8, downloaded Windows 10 and I’m starting to fall in love again. I do have to admit that the Windows 10 is ALOT different than Windows 8 in my opinion, but there are so many new apps and gadgets that I’m getting used to it!

  • seikan

    Mailbird is the best email client ever on my Windows 10.

  • BiggishTuba558

    It seems good. I’ll try it

  • Lloyd Lonergan

    Would love to win this

  • Melly

    It seems Mailbird is a get app to use esp for windows 10 but I am always normally the one who is last to try anything new esp on my pc. I am wary of downloading new programs until i either forced to use them or i have to have them to make the computer actually run otherwise I wait and see how others feedback of a program will maybe influence me to try it sooner.

    • Christin Baumgarten

      Thanks for sharing your feedback Melly. Please let us know if you need any help setting up Mailbird, once you have decided to try it. Also, if you have any questions before you would like to try Mailbird, please send us a message to support (at) and we will help you asap. Happy Monday.

    • Christin Baumgarten

      Hahahaha, well good luck then:-)

  • Luke Walter Alexander

    Why does McAfee consider the site a ‘security risk’…?
    For ‘malicious downloads’…?

    • Christin Baumgarten

      Hey Luke, thanks for your feedback. As long as you got the Installer from our website ( we can guarantee you it is a false positive and you can download it without any worries. Let us know if you have any further questions.

  • Boyd Schidtt

    So I have to pay if I have more than 3 email accounts?

    • Christin Baumgarten

      Hey Boyd, if you want to add more than 3 accounts to your Mailbird, then Mailbird PRO or Lifetime would be the best option for you.

  • Geat

    Seems like a nice app

  • australopithecus 7.0.2 waiting

    Will give it a try, thanks

  • Michael Kristensen

    Still use thunderbird but this might be worth checking out, especially if I could do it on that fine surface pc

    • Christin Baumgarten

      Hey we are sorry to hear that. Just to be clear, are you referring to Mailbird or Windows10?

      • Rita Sheppard

        Windows 10

  • Tanya White

    Much easier to use then W8 , love the features.

  • CjEggett

    I’m still looking for a better way to manage my mail. Mailbird might be the answer. I still use Gmail for most things, but it can be frustrating. I also think it’s provided me with plenty of bad habits. I’d like to find a more focused way of dealing with email that allows me to stick to the keyboard, rather than breaking it up with mouse/touch movements.

    • Christin Baumgarten

      Thanks fro your feedback and welcome to the family. Please let us know at support (at) if you have any questions. Also, make sure you check out our keyboard shortcuts in the options menu;-)

  • Eva Vida

    It sounds good.I will give it a try.thank you

    • Christin Baumgarten

      You should and if you like it, make sure you get it while our 50% off promotion is still running;-)

  • Gregg Andely

    are all these happy testamonials fake,because my McFee says it is risky with malware

    • Christin Baumgarten

      Hey Gregg, its a pity you would think that. Some of the Antivirus programs detect it as malware but we can ensure you it is a false positive and you can add Mailbird to your antivirus’ white list. Let us know at [email protected] if you have any further questions:-) Have a great day.

      • Gregg Andely

        No it is not what I think,it is what the anti-virus says, I am Dave outside the pod door tring to convince HAL to let me in.Yeah we all know the letters that make up HAL is IBM ,each letter was made one letter backwards in the alphabet. Is this free? I like FREE, I will give you a LIKE later to show my gratitude.

        • Gregg Andely

          I downloaded it but it crashes and windows cannot solve this problem.Could it be my vista is old 2007

  • Rajanikanth KN

    After looking at all the reviews below, i would like to try Mailbird…. :)….

    • Christin Baumgarten

      Please do and let us know if you have any questions:-) Happy Tuesday:-)

  • Linda Shanks Tate

    does this program accept IMAP server for email……right now Outlook is driving me crazy because it doesn’t on Windows 10 when upgrade from 8. I want my email on my desktop not with microsoft

    • Christin Baumgarten

      Hey Linda, yes Mailbird does support IMAP:-) Let us know if you need any help setting Mailbird up on your desktop we are happy to help you:-)

  • Ralph Price

    I want to send the same personalised email to all of my clients (mailmerge style). Can Mailbird do this? Thanks

    • Christin Baumgarten

      Hey Ralph, thanks for your message. Mailbird can’t do that…yet:-) Feel free to add it to our feature request forum, that helps us prioritise.
      Happy Wednesday:-)

    • steven

      I also wish to do this .I have lots of customers which I wish to add into specific groups so that I can send one email to all .Is that the same as what you want ?

  • Mike Sands

    Would someone care to explain the email I got today from Mailbird CEO Andrea Loubier, who said …and I quote “We would like to use this opportunity to say how grateful we are for your patronage for this past 2 years. For your loyalty and dedication we offer you a one time chance to get Mailbird Pro Lifetime for only 50% off the normal price” When I checked this out IT IS ACTUALLY CHEAPER TO BUY DIRECT FROM THE MAILBIRD WEBSITE ………..and you dont have to have been a loyal and dedicated user at all. Leaves me with such a wonderful feeling of being valued !!

  • Gill Chesney-Green

    I’m not happy with the program. I live in two places alternately and whichever address the sender has used to contact me can’t be changed. Eg if I’m in Gibraltar and someone sends an email to my UK address then I can’t reply by just changing the ‘from’ address. To reply I have to go to webmail of the server it has come through… so to me this is just a backward step. I’m sure I can’t be the only one with this issue. Very frustrating. Unless anyone knows a ‘work around’?

  • Debbie Hickmott

    can emails be saved into folders does anyone know please

    • Christin Baumgarten

      Hey Debbie, thanks for your question. Are you referring to folders on your desktop or in your Mailbird? In Mailbird you can create folders that you just drag&drop email into for example. As for folders on your desktop, you can go into the message source and save them one by one as an .eml file on your desktop. I hope this helped?

  • Laura Taylor

    does it select all and delete?

    • Christin Baumgarten

      Hey Laura,
      sure you can:-) Please press Ctrl+A. Let us know if you have trouble doing so:-)

  • Michelle Chopin

    I need to move emails from a Fatcow account into Gmail – can I do this by dragging and dropping through this free mail client?

    • Christin Baumgarten

      Hey Michelle, thanks for your message. With Mailbird you can access all of your emails from any provider using our Unified Inbox feature. You can not move them to the different inbox, but at least access them, so this might be a very good alternative for you:-)

  • Russell Wiley

    I don’t see Exchange support, so I’ll have to pass. All I want is a simple client to connect to my companies exchange server. There’s a ton out there for cell phones, but none for PC? I just don’t want to have to boot up the company laptop just to send an email. Sure I can do it with my phone, but if I’m already in front of my PC, I’d rather just do it here real quick rather than booting up the laptop when I need a real keyboard.

  • Tim Pollard

    I normally collect email on my mac at home but also have a Surface Pro 4 running W10 that I use when I am out. I want its email on the SP4 to behave like an iPad’s. So download the mail when online for offline reading, never delete anything from the server because that’s the main Mac’s job, delete old mail so I only have a few weeks of email on my device to stop it eating up my disk space (so Outlook is out!) but leave it on the server if it is still there. My Mac is set to delete from the server after a week so all my devices have a chance to download new mail and it also uses Spamsieve to clean the mailboxes. Can Mailbird give me this iPad-style mail please?

    • Christin Baumgarten

      Hey Tim, thanks for your message.
      Let me break it up to be able to answer your question as detailed as possible.
      Download the mail when online for offline reading? Yes mailbird can do that
      Never delete anything from the server because that’s the main Mac’s job? Yes if you use IMAP and do not delete the email from Mailbird.
      Deleting email from Mailbird will also delete the email from the server.
      Mailbird can’t delete emails automatically, but it can delete emails that is not in the server anymore if you are using IMAP. I hope that helped you answer your question.

  • Dean

    If I switch to Mailbird, will the program be upgraded BEFORE Windows upgrades to the next version? I want to be sure Mailbird has sufficient development to ensure it will always work.

    • Christin Baumgarten

      Hey Dean, thanks for your comment. We are working very hard every day to ensure that Mailbird is compatible with any update coming from Windows. You can contact our support team at any time at [email protected] should you ever experience any issues with Mailbird:-) Have a great day and thanks for your awesome support:-)

  • Jon Carpenter

    I have looked through a great many of these comments and questions and have yet to see my biggest complaint to windows 10 mail: can you work with an address book, adding to and deleting contacts? This issue alone makes MS Mail an absolute waste for me.

    • Christin Baumgarten

      Hey Jon, thanks for getting in touch. We are soon releasing our new Contacts Manager with Contacts Sync. You will then be able to edit and work on your contact details as you wish:-) Ideally we will be launching the new Contacts Manager into the Alpha this week:-) So its not long to go anymore…Let us know if you have anymore questions.

      • Warthog

        I downloaded and installed “Mailbird”, and it might just as well be “Jailbird”, as it appears to be totally non-intuitive and obtuse.. You say I require a SEPARATE APP to simply manage email addresses??? That is one of the dumbest things I have ever heard. Managing addresses is a fundamental requirement of ANY email client.

        • Christin Baumgarten

          I am not sure why, but you may have understood. There is no separate app required. The next big update will release a fantastic contacts manager feature to Mailbird.

          • Warthog

            So where is documentation that tells how to use the current one I see a box that says “Contacts”, which got three “contacts” from somewhere, that are indeed people I know. Unfortunately, I see nothing further about those contacts, no way to edit them, and the software will not even let me delete them.

          • Christin Baumgarten

            I think this post may be very helpful for you.
            It will soon be updated with our new Contacts Manger which will make managing your contacts super easy:-)



    • Christin Baumgarten

      Hey thanks for reaching out. At the moment we won’t be able to help you with this either. We do have “Advance Search” on our Roadmap, please feel free to up-vote the feature in our forum to get it higher up on the list:–Advanced-Search
      Have a great week and let us know if you do decide to give Mailbird a try anyways and have questions about it.

  • Richard

    I am planning to download Mailbird to my desktop PC running Windows 10 (to replace the Windows 10 mail app) – will it cope with my Hotmail, Live, Outlook, Gmail and Plusnet addresses ?
    Also, will my emails be stored on my PC and on the net ?

    • Christin Baumgarten

      Hey Richard, thanks for reaching out:-) You can add any POP§ and SMTP account to Mailbird and your emails will be saved locally on your PC. Should you have any problems or questions, feel free to reach out to our support team at support (at) getmailbird (dot) com. They will help you solve any issue asap:-) Have a great week and wonderful festive days ahead:-)

  • dblgoat

    I am about to upgrade from Vista which has Windows Mail 2006 to Windows 10 with a new computer. Will mailbird allow me to import my Windows Mail emails to local folders and use them (ie forward, reply, etc) in the future?

    My laptop has been downgraded from Windows 10 to 7. Is it still possible for me to use Mailbird?

    Exchange support?

    • Christin Baumgarten

  • Dale Sill

    Will mailbird import from yahoomail? Will it delete from both yahoo and mailbird or do I have to go to yahoo to delete messages I have read?

    • Christin Baumgarten

      Hey Dale, you will see the same emails in Mailbird, that you have in yahoo mail. Mailbird will sync with your yahoo so all the emails will be “imported”. When deleting a message in Mailbird it will be deleted in your yahoo account and the other way around:-)

    I had Windows Live Mail on my last laptop with the os of Windows 8. I just got a new laptop with Windows 10 and it seems that I must choose a new email client. Would you recommend Mailbird? I have read some of the questions and comments and am liking what I see so far. Organize contacts onto groups, I imagine I can also upload all 2,500 contacts and multiple folders with ease. The last thing I am looking for is to use my same email that goes through the server from my website: [email protected]
    Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    • Mailbird

  • Marmota

    Does mailbird allow the creation of group emails with more than 10 contacts? Also, can you easily create new contacts from emails? Windows 10 mail app won’t do either. Also,how many email accounts can it support? I need 4.

    • Christin Baumgarten

      Hey, thanks for reaching out. Yes, you will be once we launched our new Contact Manger…which will be TODAY yeeeeyyy:-) You will just need to update your Mailbird and start using the Contacts App:-)

      • Marmota

        We are now using Mailbird on a Win 10 laptop and I find it to be a very easy and intuitive program to set up and operate, yet it is very full featured allowing us to easily send group emails to our employees and manage our 4 pop mail accounts, no problem. Loving it! The price was quite reasonable too!

        • Christin Baumgarten

          This is great thanks so much for your feedback we really appreciate it. Please let us know should you have any questions. Have a great start to the new week.:-)

  • Satyaki Mukherjee

    I have more than 25GB of mails in my Windows live mail. Recently I have upgraded to W10. Is it possible to import all these mails to Mailbird ?

    • Christin Baumgarten

      Hey Satyaki, thanks for reaching out:-) There is no restriction in terms of that. Are you using IMAP or POP3? If you are using POP3 we would suggest you to do a back up before importing them considering the amount. Mailbird wont delete any emails, but with 25MB we would suggest you to do it in any case:-) Please get in touch with our [email protected] and we will help you get Mailbird set up:-)

  • Rhonie Briley

    Does mailbird have automatic email printing?

    • Christin Baumgarten

      Hey Rhonie, Thanks for reaching out. No, there is no automatic printing. You can print them manually though. Please let us know should you have any more questions.:-)

  • Cornbinder89

    I’m looking for an e mail program that can download then delete the E mail from my email server so my server box doesn’t fill up. Outlook express used to do that, but when I switch to Windows 10 their e mail program doesn’t have that option, does Mailbird?

  • Shane Shaggy Derham

    Will it handle 9 different email accounts?

    • Christin Baumgarten

      Hey Shane, it shouldn’t have any problems handling 9 accounts:-) If you have any more questions before or during set up, please get in touch with our support(at)getmailbird(dot)com. They will try to help as fast as they can.

  • Mahesha Padyana

    Hello, Does this have option to sync with google contacts? Also does it sync all folder structures (I mean groups) with Gmail contacts? In Thunderbird, though there is a feature, it seems broken. Groups are not properly synchronized.

  • Jason L.

    Is Mailbird a 64bit application? When I installed, it shows up as running in 32bit mode. Thanks.

    • Christin Baumgarten

      Hey Jason, we do have a 64bit version. Could you please reach out to cb(at)getmailbird(dot)com? I will connect you with the right person:-)

  • Larry

    Hi. I was a previous mailbird customer and loved the system but it would almost daily somehow lock my yahoo mail account. Have no idea why it would do this. After several emails to the system folks and no resolution had to drop mailbird. Since then the account has yet to be locked out. May try it again just to see if anything has changed.

    • Christin Baumgarten

      Hey Larry, I am really sorry to hear we couldn’t help you then. As far as I know the issue should be resolved. But please feel free to share your ticket number with us, so I can double check that you would not face the previous issue anymore.

  • Mark Cline

    Mailbird crashed after an update. It told me that I need to uninstall it and reinstall it. I uninstalled it, now it won’t reinstall. Mailbird really should have support line that we can call to fix stuff like this. I am wondering if I have lost all of the emails in the process.

    • Christin Baumgarten

      Hey Mark, thanks so much for reaching out. The issue is fixed and you should not have lost any emails. Either way please feel free to get in touch with our support team (support(at) They will help you get Mailbird back up and running asap. Thanks again for reaching out and have a wonderful day.

      • Mark Cline

        I am getting an update alert every time I open mailbird. Is it safe to do the update now?

        • Christin Baumgarten

          Hey Mark, thanks for reaching out. It is safe to update Mailbird, but if you are unsure, please get in touch with our support team ([email protected]), they will be able to help you with that:-)

  • Kelly Koch

    Hey there,
    I am looking for an app to replace outlook. I have work emails and personal emails coming through outlook at the moment and I cant seem to find emails older than 1 week old on my work account. I have looked into this and it seems this is a very common problem with Outlook. If I downloaded Mailbird, would I be able to get all my old emails as well?


    • Christin Baumgarten

      Hey Kelly, thanks for reaching out. Can you please send that over to support(at)getmailbird(dot)com? They will be able to look into it in more detail and let you know if it will work in Mailbird. Have a great day Kelly:-)

      • Kelly Koch
