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.

Why use MetroMail as an Outlook user?
- Swipe actions for managing emails
- Attach multiple files from 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.

Version 2.1:
- New: Swipe gestures can now be disabled
- New: Hyperlinks now support custom URIs
- Update: Ability to set "reply all" as the default reply action has been restored
- Fix: It is now possible to forward Outlook attachments
- Fix: The "load more" option is now properly displayed

    Works flawlessly. Looks beautiful, too. Feels like a native Gmail app. As an experienced Android user, I have to say that this app makes switching over a breeze. If only they would make a calendar app...

    UPDATE: With the last update, fixed the issue below. Upgrading rating! --- So much better than the stock mail app! However, with the last update, is it just me, but I no longer can retrieve messages more than a day old, rendering the app nearly useless. I looked at all the settings, and its not something that's easily intuitive. Downgrading until it gets fixed or I'm able to figure it out.

    Best email app available. Only one that does Gmail categorization, and does it well.

    Live tile and audible notification settings keep getting turned off automatically, and intermittently. Very annoying and counter productive...
