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.

    Next best thing to an official Gmail app, maybe even better. Love that I can use the tabs again.

    Good to have Gmail options, but I would prefer a GUI closer to the original app

    Muito funcional. Porém a interface gráfica poderia ser mais agradável.

    Recent update warn me the trial version again. That's ridiculous for a productive app. I paid for the full version several months ago. Recently this app reverted to trial mode and told me to remove additional account. It's ridiculous. Update: the author emailed me the reason and fixed the problem.

    Don't hold enough spam mail.

    This app works great but there's an issue with the notifications on windows phone 8.1 the notifications worked just for about 2 weeks. The number displayed ont lock screen and the live tile is incorrect. In fact the don't even match! I'm using this for Gmail only. I cannot comment on the other mail services. Wich they would fix this
