Do you find yourself using email less because it's become so difficult to find the important messages amid all the chaff? Do you wish there was a way to make email from multiple accounts more organized, or at least more appealing? EmailTray just might be what you're looking for.
Although email definitely has excellent value as a method of communication, it appears to be losing some steam in terms of popularity. Market research company comScore documented this trend with some statistics revealed in an article by the New York Times website. According to comScore's findings, the number of unique visitors to popular mail service sites such as Hotmail, Yahoo, and others has declined since November of 2009. The biggest decline in email usage occurred among the teenage (12 to 17 year old) demographic.
What is behind this drop in email's popularity? The competition of and proliferation of text messaging and quick chats certainly has a hand in the decline, among other causes. With other methods of communication threatening email's market share, providers of email programs are forced to step up their efforts to make it more appealing to consumers. This means added features and functionality. One such program that was created to make email easier is EmailTray.
EmailTray was developed by Web CEO and is described as “your personal email concierge.” In essence, the program helps notify you when your most important emails arrive. Rather than interrupting you with constant email notifications when trivial messages come through, EmailTray prioritizes email from different senders to help keep all of your messages organized.
Rather than handling just one account at a time, EmailTray allows users to integrate different accounts into the program, making it a one-stop shop for messaging. The program supports POP3, IMAP, and Webmail accounts, allowing you to monitor mail messages from providers such as Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo, and more. To be notified of new messages, you do not have to leave your email clients open. The clients can be closed, and you will still receive notifications from EmailTray. As something important comes into your inbox, you will see a popup and hear a sound effect to keep you informed of what just came in.
As stated, perhaps the main value offered by EmailTray is its prioritization capabilities. When you set up the program, it will analyze your email accounts to index all of your messages. It then creates a network of trusted senders and automatically prioritizes future incoming mail into various categories.
The categories of Top Priority, Low Priority, No Priority, and Spam create a hierarchy of importance among your incoming mail across various accounts. This is especially helpful for users that manage several accounts at the same time and have little time to do so. In addition, EmailTray has a safety net to prevent you from losing important messages in the Spam box, as it will scan your Spam box to find any emails erroneously dumped there.
EmailTray also offers privacy protection. Any account passwords remain on your computer, so you won't have to worry about them getting onto the programs servers. The same holds true for any subject lines or text from your messages.
Besides the listed features, EmailTray offers much more to users looking for a new email management program. Best of all, it's free.
