It’s fun to use with touch screen machines. It increases your email management productivity. It fast, easy and enjoyable to use while also reducing time you spend archiving.

It’s pretty cool, but wait til you see it in Mailbird 2.0 to be used with touch screen machines. Awesome.   Here’s a sneak peek of the Mailbird 2.0 and the Touch Screen…
