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.

  • by Andre 11/27/2014 response, to any of my questions, another disappointing app, and developer. there are a cpl. of issues, that I have emailed you about, and I still haven't received a response. I have sent two emails regarding these issues. My reviews is not the highest, it can chg., but I still need answers to my questions. Pls. Respond to my emails...thx. I'm using the trial version...

    Great app. It is a little bit slow. When I switch between accounts it downloads all emails from the scratch.
  • by Miroslav 11/27/2014
    It suddenly reverted to trial from pro, unacceptable!
  • by Obinna 11/27/2014
    Good App, I love the fact that I can attach file to email.
  • by Xan 11/27/2014
    Very good app. I have looked around and this is the best app for Gmail on windows phones. A little customization would help like having more options for inbox presentation (color, style, theme). Other than that, it is a great app. I had to downgrade to 4 stars as I experienced delayed and inconsistent notification (inbox shows new emails but notification does not display or vibrate the number of newly arrived emails, thus inconsistency between inbox and notification on lock screen/metro tile)
  • by Prem 11/27/2014
    Great app to provide the Gmail functionality that the basic Mail app is missing. Slightly laggy at times, especially when swiping between screens or emails. However, worth it for tags and viewing chat logs!
  • by Sean 11/26/2014
    So much better than native client. Very battery friendly. True push notifications. Awesome User interface! Great workkkk!!!! 😁😁😁 Update: Phone now has 8.1. Lost swipe features for deleting emails. This was a very useful feature for me. Now or went poof. Any help? Update as of November 25. Store to delete is back. Happy customer!

    Worth the money, does the job well. I highly recommend it!

    Can't send pictures not to happy
  • by Randy 11/25/2014
    Almost great not perfect. This app is exactly what I'm looking for because the factory mail app on my Nokia 1520 is so god da#n basic! This app wont let you add your work MS exchange accounts yet. I sent a message to the developer and got a response in less than 24 hours.! MS exchange compatibility is a way down the line right now from what I was told. I paid for the full app and even though its not exactly what I need I'm not unhappy. I'll donate $2 when I can to any developer trying to better this MS wasteland of Apps that should have been right on the factory software.
