Here’s a quick round-up of some of the most useful email apps out there.

A super nifty tool and a personal favorite of ours. This Chrome plugin makes sure you never misspell ‘misspell’, confuse your you’res and, finally, rid emails, of wayward commas, forever!*

*Yes we know those commas shouldn’t be there – trying to prove a point.

Timely Mail Sift

This little number allows you to schedule emails to be sent at the most effective time. And if you’re busy when an email arrives, just snooze it to come back to your inbox later. It’s a great tool for any salespeople looking to boost engagement rates by sending their emails at the time they are most likely to be opened.

If you obsess over the blue double-tick in WhatsApp then Streak is the tool for you! It gives you a neat little timeline of every view your email gets so you can time your follow-up call perfectly or call out someone’s nonsense when they claim they ‘never got your email.’

Sortd adds a skin to your Gmail to make it akin to Kanban board – perfect for those who like to deal in to-do lists and find it frustrating when a vital email drops below the bottom of the home screen.

With Unroll.me you can cleanse your inbox of all those annoying newsletters and subscriptions that you seem to have been signed up for when you bought that one thing once.


And finally, now you have your inbox functioning perfectly, make sure your email domain is too! OnDMARC helps you to deploy DMARC, the email authentication protocol, quickly and simply so you can protect your email identity from phishing attacks and boost your deliverability too!
