Mailbird introduces Unified Inbox Plus

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 have your archived emails and your “All” emails combined in that folder. This only concerns your inbox, if you have a Gmail account.

You prefer accessing the emails in their own inbox or would only like 3 out of your 4 inboxes unified?

No problem at all. You can easily disable the unified inbox or just remove single accounts from the unified inbox.


Enable Unified Inbox Plus

Simply go to your Mailbird Options -> Accounts and un-check the box “Enable unified account”

Remove single accounts from Unified Inbox Plus

Go to your Mailbird menu in the top left corner. Then choose Options -> Accounts and click the account you would like to add or exclude in Unified Inbox Plus.

Unified Inbox Plus works when you have at least 2 email accounts. If you only use one email account in Mailbird, then Unified Inbox Plus removes itself and goes back to the original layout with one single account.
