Fantastic. Can't tell you how many times I just wanted to do one thing in my email and got lost in my inbox.
User portrait Niall Fennell
I am instantly less stressed! I've been waiting for this extension. Thank you!
User portrait Anna Schneiderman
This app really helps me keep my focus and choose when I'm doing email and when I'm not.
User portrait Alex Warbasse
I love that I can easily search for what I needed without getting sidetracked by reading new messages that pop up.

This has improved my productivity and focus enormously. Easy to use.
User portrait Sam McEwin
It's hard to understand what an impact this simple app can make until you start using it. I must have been far more distracted by my inbox than I realised.
User portrait Chris Rand
If you think you might need this ...you definitely will. Just the ability to see old emails without having new ones thrust at you and stressing you out is amazing.
User portrait Katie Hoyer
Incredibly helpful. Lets me communicate without being dragged off course by other peoples' agendas. As a result, I can respond more efficiently when I'm ready!
User portrait Kevin DeLand
So useful! I used to literally hold my hand up to cover my inbox...
