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.

  1. 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.

  2. Fix bad subjects without busting threads

    If you don’t start the thread, you're often stuck with other people’s generic, non-descriptive email subjects. With HEY, you can rename a subject so it makes sense for you without changing things for the other person.

  3. 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.

  4. Find files without digging through threads

    If you’re looking for an attachment, why should you have to find an email first? That’s backwards. With HEY, you get an attachment library that gathers up every attachment you’ve ever received in one organized, siftable place.

  5. Quiet by default, loud at your discretion

    HEY push notifications are off by default so your phone doesn’t steal your attention every time an inconsequential email hits your Imbox. However, HEY lets you selectively turn them on for specific contacts or threads so you don't miss the things you really care about.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. E pluribus unum

    Doesn't it suck when someone emails you separate threads about the same thing? Yup! With HEY, you can merge separate emails into one so you can keep everything together on a single page. No more dealing with fragmented conversations across separate threads.

  10. Spread ’em out, read ’em together

    Let's say you have 7 unread emails. Why do you have to open one, close one, open one, close one, open one, close one, and so on. It's ridiculously inefficient. With HEY, you can open multiple emails at once and just scroll through them, just like you would a newsfeed. It's a revolutionary way to read your emails. You'll never go back to the old way.

  11. Focus & Reply: Line ’em up, knock ’em down

    You've finally got 30 minutes to knock out the 12 emails that need a reply. But new stuff keeps popping into your inbox. It's so hard to focus! But not with HEY. HEY allows you to 'Focus & Reply' which only shows you emails you've marked 'Reply Later'. And then it lets you reply to one after another without having to look back at your Imbox. It’s amazing.

  12. Bundle dominating senders into one line

    It’s frustrating when a service floods your email with notifications. With HEY, you can bundle any sender’s emails together. Now, no matter how many emails they send you, they’ll only take up a single row in your Imbox. Clean!

  13. Send massive files without using other apps

    Sending big files via email is a hassle. You usually have to use Dropbox, yousendit, WeTransfer, or something like that. Nonsense. With HEY, just attach the file and we’ll send the recipient a direct link to download it.

  14. Clips: Surface bits, don’t dig for them

    Need quick access to a phone number, a link, address, or confirmation number that's buried deep in an email thread? With HEY, you can 'clip' any text and add it to your Clips Library for immediate, anytime reference without having to frantically dig for it when you need it.

  15. The Speakeasy Code

    Sometimes you give someone your email at a conference - maybe a prospect, maybe a vendor - and you want to be sure to know when they email you. With HEY, you can give them your special Speakeasy code. If they include that code in the subject, their email will bypass the screener and be given special treatment in your Imbox so you don't miss it.

  16. Stick it to an email

    Everyone else can put stuff in your inbox, but you can’t. But with HEY you can. HEY lets you add personal sticky notes to any email in your Imbox. They’re great for jotting down phone numbers, dates, addresses, links, and personal, private thoughts you’ll need next time you reference that email.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. New For You & Previously Seen

    Inboxes are often an intertwined mess of new and old messages haphazardly mixed together. Yuck. With HEY, new messages are always grouped together at the top, and previously seen emails are always at the bottom. It’s neat, it’s predictable, it’s orderly, and it’s automatic in HEY.

  20. Get off threads without having to ask

    Stuck on a mega email chain and want off? Good luck asking someone to remove you. With HEY, you can unfollow any thread and replies won’t show up as new emails anymore. Out of your face forever.
