About this app

Email’s new heyday
Email sucked for years. Not anymore — we fixed it. HEY’s fresh approach transforms email into something you want to use, not something you’re forced to deal with.

It’s “you’ll never go back” better
HEY replaces workarounds, messy hacks, and daily frustrations, with built-in workflows, effortless organization, and clever features that levels-up email in meaningful ways.

Screen emails like you screen calls
You screen your calls, so why can’t you screen your emails? With HEY, you can. HEY puts you in complete control of who’s allowed to email you. The first time someone emails you, you get to decide if you want to hear from them again.

The Imbox: It’s not a typo
Everyone hates their bloated inbox, so HEY has a focused Imbox instead. Your Imbox is where important, immediate emails go from people or services you care about. No random receipts, no “I rarely read these” newsletters, and no special offers crowding out the stuff you really care about.

Blocking email spies 24/7/365
Many companies track which emails you open, how often you open them, and even where you were when you opened them. It’s a massive invasion of your privacy. HEY blocks these trackers and tells you who’s spying on you.

Add private “notes to self” to any email thread
Conversations may start in email, but they may continue somewhere else. Some emails turn into lunches or calls or video conferences. Where do you put the notes from those - especially if they relate to the initial email conversation? With HEY, you can add personal, private notes (and files) to any thread. This way you keep everything related to the conversation on one page, even if it didn’t all happen via email.

Put receipts in The Paper Trail
Receipts, confirmations, and transactional emails getting in your way? With HEY, you can send those types of emails to The Paper Trail where they’ll be out of your way, but easy to find when you need them.

A built-in “Reply Later” workflow
What if you need to reply, but you don’t have time right now? With HEY, just click the “Reply Later” button to move an email to a dedicated ‘Reply Later’ pile at the bottom of the screen so you don’t lose or forget it.

Just set it aside
Sometimes you get emails you need to reference later - travel info, handy links, numbers you need, etc. With HEY, you can ‘Set Aside’ any email in a neat little pile for easy access whenever you need it. At hand, but out of your face.

You always pay for email
“Free” email like other providers isn’t free — you pay by giving up your privacy and valuable personal data. That’s expensive. Since we don’t sell ads, or invade your privacy, we charge $99/year for HEY (though ultra-short premium addresses are extra).

The app sometimes takes a very long time to load new messages. Search often doesn't find messages unless there's an exact match, making it extremely inconvenient to use. Bubble up lets you set a custom date but not a time, which is very frustrating. There's no way to "screen in and mark as seen" which is annoying for new messages, nor is there an option to simply delete without screening in or out. Attachments are always inline, which is frustrating to deal with. I wouldn't recommend Hey.

Just for the fact there is no "swipe to delete" option I won't be continuing my trial. I also feel like $100 a year is overpriced for an email service. The only reason to get this service is if you want to own a cool email address, but that's a luxury I know I'd feel stupid for buying. The app itself is pretty cool and is a lot better then Gmail for sure. But will also won't let you use your other email accounts, which makes it obsolete. Also, the fact they call the Inbox 'Imbox" really bothers

Love this app, and email service. Only feature request I've had since the original release of the bundling feature is the ability to enable bundling by default. The main reason I use Hey email is to reduce noise. It'd be nice if I at least had the option to opt into reducing more noise.
