MetroMail is the first third-party email client for Windows Phone. It improves user experience by significantly expanding the functionality offered by the native email client. It also brings a first-class experience for Gmail users, which includes all major Gmail-specific functionality, and instant notifications.

NOTE: The free ad-supported version allows full functionality for a single email account. For adding additional accounts, removing ads, and supporting future development, purchasing the full version is required. An unrestricted free 30 day trial is also offered.

Why use MetroMail as an Outlook/IMAP user?
- Swipe actions for managing emails
- Attach files from either your device or your OneDrive account
- Ability for editing replies (plain-text only)
- Individual tile colors for each account
- Individual notification sound for each account
- Individual toast notification support with night mode for each account
- Tile counts are synced across all your devices (i.e. reading emails will reset the tile count on all your devices)
- Concatenate multiple accounts under one unread counter (for use with a single live tile or the lock screen)
- No longer break threads for non-Outlook (e.g. Thunderbird, Gmail) users when replying to emails
- Proper handling of embedded email images
- Choose between small/medium/large/original when attaching photos
- Support for HTML signatures

Why use MetroMail as a Gmail user?
- All of the above plus:
  + Instant notifications via IMAP IDLE
  + First-class support for archiving, starred emails, and labels
  + Support for inbox tabs (e.g. Primary, Social, Promotions)
  + Server-side search functionality with support for advanced Gmail search operators
  + Support for multiple From addresses within the same account

Security & Privacy:
- The application only connects directly to your provider's servers and your password is never seen, processed, or stored by the app.

    Crashes on send relatedly. Developer will not fix. Instead charging a fee. Scam app.

    Live tile still broken in v3.4 (switch doesn't stick when you leave account settings page, apply button doesn't appear). Popup notifications gives you "unknown error" when you press apply.
