Mailbox is shutting down, Microsoft invites Mailbox users to give Outlook a try

Outlook Mailbox

Mailbox app which is now owned by Dropbox is shutting down. Beginning that day you will no longer be able to login, and Mailbox service will stop.

Why is Mailbox shutting down?

The landscape around communication tools has evolved rapidly since Mailbox joined Dropbox over 2 years ago, and so has our focus at Dropbox. To be able to say ‘yes’ to the biggest areas of impact, we have to say ‘no’ to other good and valuable things. Those trade-offs are hard, but they’re also the stuff that great companies are made of. We’re sad to see Mailbox go, but eager to continue simplifying the way people work together.

Javier Soltero, corporate vice president for the Outlook team today posted a blog post inviting Mailbox users to give Outlook apps a try. Outlook is one of the most popular mobile email client on iOS and Android.

Microsoft recently made improvements to their Schedule feature to make former Mailbox users feel right at home. They added more options for scheduling messages to a later date and time with just a tap, including This Weekend for those personal emails you want to get out of the way or Next Week for less urgent projects.

“As Mailbox is turned off, we are convinced more than ever before that there is still much more to do to make email on your phone amazing. In today’s mobile world, we believe email on your phone needs to be more than just for reading messages while standing in line for coffee. It needs to help you quickly focus on what matters and ignore what doesn’t. It needs to let you send better email more easily. It should make you more productive, not overwhelm you”, said Javier Soltero.
