Editors' Review

+

It's true that the busier you are, the more e-mail you receive. Yet that just makes you busier still, and takes away time from what you're supposed to be busy with: namely, your business. It just gets worse when you use multiple accounts and even clients in a vain but valiant attempt to divide and conquer the flood of messages. EmailTray from Web CEO is a free e-mail tool that collects all your e-mail and Webmail accounts in one interface and prioritizes your messages based on your usage patterns and your own customization. It displays the number of unread messages in a handy system tray icon.

EmailTray's installer lets you set the app as your default e-mail client. We chose to keep Outlook as our default client. Adding accounts is easy, and many users will only need their user name and password, though EmailTray's Configuration Settings offers seven tabs for managing accounts, adding custom rules, configuring alerts and backups, and other options. EmailTray's main interface has a sleek yet businesslike look that will blend in with any corporate environment or business suite. The program's design focuses on the most important features; for instance, the left sidebar usually shows only basic buttons like Inbox and Sent, though clicking More shows Archive, Trash, and Contact icons. Reply, Forward, Delete, and other buttons are on the right margin. The main view is similar to most email clients in layout, but sorted by three tabs: Top Priority, Low Priority, and No Priority. A discreet System Tray icon displayed the number of unread Top and Low priority messages in a split view, up to 99 each.

In importing our messages and data from our email accounts, EmailTray had studied how quickly we'd responded to certain messages and senders, which messages we quickly deleted, what was obviously Spam, and other patterns. It did a pretty good job of sorting our messages, too, though we could right-click any message or use the program's tools to change a sender's priority, create rules, and change options. EmailTray is great for the businessperson or any busy person, especially if you're feeling overwhelmed by e-mail.

"Loved It!! at first"

October 24, 2013  |  By eatdrumz

 |  Version: EmailTray 4.0

Pros

It retrieves E mail
It Sends E mail
Setup was Never easier
Contacts imported automatically
Syncs with Facebook

Cons

Menu icons with no help
Very limited inbox choices
Where are the folders

Summary

This program set up like it was designed in Heaven. All contacts were imported, accounts self checked, and started, and mail servers worked perfectly. Than I went to customize it the way I wanted it.
Forget it. No customization. No way to make a toolbar, folder, sub folder, or tag. The address book is nice, but you have to push the icons to figure out what they do.
After messing with this thing for an hour, I got frustrated, and will be uninstalling it.
Can't anyone make an e mail client that's straight ahead, and won't freeze, (Thunderbird). I guess my search continues. If Really wanted to like this!!

"Excellent!"

July 29, 2013  |  By winsupertweaker

I used ePrompter for several years but that program couldn't keep up with the operating systems. Emailtray is fantastic and is easy to setup for all types of email.

"Two Thumbs Up"

Cons

None. It works as described

Summary

Excellent for one or many email accounts.

"It works, after a fashion"

October 07, 2012  |  By howardferns

 |  Version: EmailTray 4.0

Pros

Since ditching Gmail all I want is a simple notifier that works wiith IMAP. EmailTray is the only one I've found so far that actually works for me.

Cons

The tray icon is too small and to make it worse it's divided with a horizontal line so you know what priority new mail is. It would be better with a simple box that just shows the number of new mails. Anyway how can a piece of software decide what priority my mail is? Only I can tell that. Of the test messages I sent myself, it put one of them in spam! I also found the hard way that messages I deleted from EmailTray were deleted from my webmail as well.

Summary

In my opinion it's more of an email client with a notifier added, and from my point of view it's more than I want.

Updated on Oct 8, 2012

Since writing the above I've given up on using IMAP for a notifier, and I'm now happily using a POP3 one, which is Poppy.

"Great product"

July 31, 2012  |  By bking4cnet

 |  Version: EmailTray 4.0

Pros

The various ways in which to organize emails.....

Cons

None yet. I have not yet figured out if there is a select all button that can eliminate all the SPAM mail at once, instead of having to manually delete one by one, but still an amazing program.

Summary

Pleased with this product

"Usable and useful software"

July 24, 2012  |  By Vladimir1984-2

 |  Version: EmailTray 4.0

Pros

1. EmailTray v.4 brought a Contact View mode instead of standard Message View mode. This turned out to be very useful and familiar for me. There is a "switch back" option, if you like previous view.
2. Save-good-messages-from-spam feature works well and correctly.
3. It looks fine even on small screens, such as my 14" laptop.
4. With my email overload (200-500 messages per day) I work in "Top priority messages" folder most of the time. I look into other folders twice a week. Acceptable for me.
5. I noticed the "Anti-phishing" feature. It is not advertised much, but it is really helpful. It saved me a few times by alerting that "this weird message is NOT from PayPal. This is fake!".
6. Program UI is not ordinary for email software, but I kinda like it.

Cons

1. Address Book must be cleared out from bugs. Seems that it's in beta now.
2. EmailTray should pal up with Windows Aero: the upper part of UI is barely visible due to semi-transparency of program window.
3. This software needs some minor tweaks. For example, I hided message list panel, but it showed again when I re-open EmailTray.

Summary

Nice new ideas, not ordinary but familiar interface. These distinguish EmailTray from other email software. In other words, if your current email program does not make you happy or you are bored with it, then you should try EmailTray.
