We are very thrilled and thankful that Greatmail has added Mailbird as a featured mail client in their services and apps Marketplace, along with integrating it into their checkout.

So in this article, we’ll cover:

What Is Greatmail? Review

Greatmail is a business-class email service provider. It offers email hosting, reseller email hosting, application hosting, and SMTP hosting services. For application and cloud developers, Greatmail webmail also offers custom solutions, such as multi-server load-balanced configurations.

The company behind Greatmail was founded in 2003, headquartered in Austin, Texas. Its technology infrastructure is geographically dispersed at data centers in North America and Europe.

As one of the early email hosting providers, Greatmail has earned brand recognition as an affordable, high-availability email service provider, and it’s now available in Mailbird.

Greatmail Co-Founder, Ryan Hess says:

“We love the simplicity of Mailbird and are pleased to be able to offer it to our clients when they sign up for email hosting. We integrated Mailbird into our checkout with a checkbox asking customers if they’d be interested in learning more about Mailbird.  If they check the box, we provide a link to Mailbird upon completion of the signup process.”

Hess added, “We also feature Mailbird as a featured mail client in our services and apps Marketplace. We are excited to be able to connect with Mailbird users looking for dependable email hosting and expert support for their business or personal email.

What Are the Advantages of Greatmail?

Greatmail isn’t just a long-standing email service. It can also offer some major benefits to suit a modern business consumer. Here are a few of them.

You can access your emails from anywhere.

The service is cloud-based so you can access your email from anywhere for as long as the emails are in the cloud. This can be a desktop or a webmail email client, as well as a wireless device.

You can be in sync with any device or app you choose.

If you’re using an email client, such as Mailbird, but also like to check in with a webmail app or on your mobile, Greatmail has you covered by syncing email messages across different destinations.

The service supports different email protocols.

Greatmail is compatible with both POP3 and IMAP. This means you can keep your emails on the server to access from different devices. But if you prefer to keep all emails on one device and use them offline, you can set up a POP3 account as well.

You get access to a web-based admin panel.

An admin panel will allow you to manage one or more accounts. You’ll be able to manage different aliases, change passwords, create vacation messages, and much more.

Sounds great, right? Then let’s see how to add a Greatmail account to your Mailbird app.

And not just that, Mailbird is also a desktop app — this means you’ll be able to switch from work tasks to email tasks, and to the fun activities, more conveniently. It provides fewer distractions than when you’re hanging out in a browser and also means you can work offline.
  • It’s a multi-account email client. If you have more than one Greatmail account or you also use other email services, you can have all your accounts in one app. A step further from that — you can manage all emails from different accounts in the Unified Inbox.
  • It offers advanced functionality and a variety of integrations. From the bare necessities of email search and organization to task managers and perks, such as an unsubscribing tool or video conferencing, everything you need is right inside your email client.
