Get the Zen of a Zero Inbox!

New paradigms come and go, but email is here to stay in a big way for a lot of people. The one thing we can do is improve the way we interact with it. We can put the Inbox in its place and tame the experience and make it more manageable.

This is where MailTamer comes in. We have created a tool that rethinks the way you interact with your Inbox for a world on-the-go. It’s a new way of looking at your email, and when you use MailTamer for the first time, you’ll say “finally.”

The unique sender, contact and recipient-based views, along with chronological and message-size views help organize your Inbox.

With a single swipe and tap, emails can be deleted, copied or moved en-masse.

MailTamer makes email simple, making it easier for you to get that Inbox to zero and get back to what matters.

So, get minimal-izing, get chopping, and get shredding. Get the Zen of a Zero Inbox.

About Us

Scott and Ria Greiff are a husband and wife dynamic duo who work together, play together, raise three children and two cats together in a civic-minded community called Clintonville in Columbus, Ohio.

Ria had a problem; excessive emails had taken over her life as a professor, model and mother. When she complained to Scott about the lack of time to tame her inbox while she was trying to tame kids and work responsibilities, she and her husband came up with the idea of creating an app to help get control of all those rogue emails. Scott, a lead software developer used his design and technical skills to develop MailTamer to help people find the Zen of a Zero Inbox.

Today Scott continues to add features and Ria continues to advocate for those who are bogged down with an overloaded inbox. Scott is currently working on expanding MailTamer features, porting it to Mac and soon to be developed new app which takes GTD to yet another game-changing level. Scott and Ria have been hailed as Innovators both in magazine publications, radio programs and tech awards.

On any given night, you can find Scott and Ria working hard to get the word out to people and dreaming up ways of making life easier for everyone. After work and putting the kids to bed, they toil together in their shared office. As for Ria, well let’s just say all of her freed up time from her emails is now being invested back into MailTamer operations.

Features

Sender-Centric View

Messages in your inbox and all folders are shown grouped by sender. You can choose to view all senders, onlly those senders who are already saved in your contacts, or view sender by date showing individual messages like traditional email clients.

Contact-Centric View

With MailTamer you can see messages broken out by senders in Contacts. Mail from senders not in your Contacts on your phone are grouped together separately. Perform actions on messages from known senders or those not known.

Recipient View

One additional view available is Recipient View. Here you can see messages for each recipient of the mail in the selected folder. This is useful if you use different email addresses for a particular account.

Multiple Email Accounts

MailTamer can give you a sender view for a number of your IMAP and POP mail accounts. Easily connect to Gmail, Yahoo! Mail, and other services like iCloud Mail, MSN and Hotmail.

Chronological View

The Chronological view shows your messages as a traditional email client would show them to you, in reverse chronological order. Occasionally it's nice to see when your email arrived.

Size View

This view shows you the size of your individual email messages in descending size order. This helps people address the messages taking up the most room in their mailbox.

Drill-down for Detail

While your inbox is shown by sender for simplicity and speed, you have the ability to continually drill-down to see detail on the messages sent by that sender. You can also view a web preview of HTML mail.

Search Enabled

Search senders in the sender-view and search folders when applying actions to a all or selected messages. As you search for folders we give you the option to create folders at the same time.

Contact-ability

Easily view and create contacts for the message sender shown. MailTamer integrates with Contacts on your mobile device.
