Things we find along the way…

The Other Inbox

with one comment

One of the concepts taken to Techcrunchs fourth session on Advertising and Commerce this week received a standing ovation.

The Other Inbox has been developed to help us manage the inbox overload issue. For example all the newsletters etc that we get can be managed and keep separate from everything else in the following way:

Users can sign up for OtherInbox (it’s free) and create vanity email addresses for different services. So if you want to receive product announcements from Amazon via email, set up an OtherInbox account called “amazon@yourname.otherinbox.com” and only emails from Amazon will be sent to that address. The same can be done for any place you input email addresses.

OtherInbox will soon offer features that can collect shipping notices, receipts, and bill payment reminders, and collect date information from each. Once collected, it will add those dates to Google Calendar, iCal, or any other calendar app.

Its still in private beta but will be out soon… Can’t wait.

  1. Thanks for writing about OtherInbox on your blog. The TC50 conference in San Francisco earlier this month was a great forum to launch our new service to the public and we were really honored to be chosen to participate. We’d like to invite you to join our private beta that we announced at the conference, and we’re happy to extend the invitation to your readers as well! Because we’re in private beta, you need to have a special URL to sign up. This URL will work for 26 invitations (one for you and 25 for your readers) if you want to post as a followup on your blog.


    Please let us know if you have any questions about the service. Thanks again!

    ~ The OtherInbox Team
