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/IMAP 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 3.0.4:
- Update: Temporarily disabled action center banner notifications in labels/folders
- Update: Automatically maximize display area when scrolling through an email
- Fix: Significantly reduced the time delay for opening the options menu when holding on items
- Fix: The account username is now properly displayed when editing IMAP server settings
- Bug fixes

    Takes more than a minute to open a message
  • by Fernando 7/21/2014
    Brings in a lot of features missing from native mail, but isn't as smooth.

    Great app! Best for Gmail on a windows phone.

    So não e 5 estrelas pq e um pouco lento
  • by Phillip 7/21/2014
    Seems pretty good, not sure about offline support, screens seem a bit cluttered and when I star something it takes a while to update, but probably the best WP Gmail client I've seen yet.

    A perfect replacement for the inbuilt email app. You get push mail in Gmail. Swipe to delete and other gestures, app lock are icing on the cake.

    Missing select all email function.
  • by Drew 7/20/2014
    Great app, would buy again. Problem after latest update: I work from the All Mail folder, and after opening an email from there, it switches to the Inbox.

    Every day use last 5 months - no problem

    Nice app. Only 4 stars because design isn't beauty
