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).

And much more... Visit hey.com to learn more.

I can't use HEY for all my email. While an interesting take with some cool features, the annual cost doesn't offset the productivity gains. The biggest issue for me is that the contact focused approach fails for reflector email lists and becomes pretty tedious to maintain with the Screener. I also find the amount of vertical scrolling to be tedious in the Feed, as I want to delete emails that I don't need any longer. I went through a busy period and lost track of some messages. The search functionality needs work to find text in the subject or body of messages. PIxel blocking is interesting, and got me off some lists - but that's not good for aggressive list maintainers: "Hey, where's that newsletter..." The other features I didn't have much use for. The annual service charge is expensive compared to other mail services. But it does have a very short domain name. And it might work for you; it just won't work for me at this time of writing.

So, I made the switch to Hey! and honestly, as a product designer, when an app does intrude on your day but becomes a part of it, that is the best experience. I check my emails when I want and respond how I want to, without the constant shift of focus throughout the day from notifications popping off. Not to mention that it keeps my life separated from most to least important, without the added stress of second guessing if I've been spammed. Love it so far!

I've used Gmail filters for years but it's so nice to have a service do this automatically! I also like being able to read through my newsletters easily, and the clips feature. I'd love to see an archive feature, the ability to collapse "previously seen", and a home screen icon shortcut directly to the feed. I'm still not sure how I feel about navigating via the "hey" icon, but I understand that it minimizes the buttons in general.

What's new

🅿️ New: Minimize drafts

Sometimes while you’re writing an email you need to reference another email thread. Now you can minimize your draft to the bottom where it’ll stay docked while you move around in HEY. When you’re ready to resume writing, just pop it back open and continue where you left off.
