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.

    Live tile and notification activation is working. Thanks

    Live tile and lock screen notifications don't update properly. Difficult to read multiple emails within one thread. On plus side doesn't break conversations like native Gmail app

    Notifications seem to have been fixed. Working normally.

    A good, basic way for me to access my work Gmail. It even handled the double authentication well.

    I really love this app. Only Gmail app I've found for windows phone that has everything I want. Also, with the latest update I am now able to use the notifications. Hooray!!!! It is a beautiful app that matches the aesthetics of your windows phone seamlessly. It also allows you to use the labels from Gmail (priority, social, etc). Thank god! You don't have to sift through thousands of inbox messages. The app is simply a necessity for any Gmail user on a windows phone.
