Unibox shows your messages ordered by sender.

Unibox offers a radically different approach to email, providing a people-centric email client. It’s very well-designed, intuitive and easy to use thanks to the sleek and one-window interface. The one of a kind client groups your emails by contacts instead of grouping by messages as usual. The interface shows who sent you an email on a given day, instead of showing a mixed list with email title. Clicking on a sender name, you can see all the email you exchanged with him: all previous conversation are neatly shown to remind you what are talking about, sorting messages from the latest email received or sent.

Every person appear once in the inbox, making easy to manage your leads. At first glance, Unibox looks like a messaging client like iMessage.

As I mentioned, the one-window user interface is neat: with a single click or tap, it’s possible to switch between viewing each sender’s message thread or take a look at pictures and attachments in that thread by icon or list. A new email window slides down from the top of each message thread and buttons to reply, forward, delete, sort or send in spam show when you hover your mouse to the top of it. A full-screen attachment preview is available.

Setting up IMAP account is easy even for novice users. Unibox supports the best email service providers out there like Gmail, iCloud, Yahoo and Outlook Exchange. Unibox is available on Mac, iPhone, and iPad. The Mac desktop version costs $15.99; the iOS version is free, but you can buy a pro version for $4.99. A 14-day trial is available.

Conclusion

Unibox is a well-designed, sleek, radically different and people-centric email client with few pesky hiccups. If you may like a grouping by contact interface, give it a try.

  1. Good in parts.
    The interface is clear, and easy to use on both Mac and iPad. The grouping of emails does help clear out old ones as well as bring threads together.

    Where it fails is in using multiple email accounts and addresses. It has an inbuilt assumption that you only use a single account – so the group doesn’t work if you have multiple accounts – which I do, as well as a shared one with my wife. There does not seem to be any way of moving a message between accounts.
    Secondly, I use aliases so that I can abandon an address if it gets too troubled by spam, but still retain the core address with its history of messages. Unibox gets an error when you try to send a mail from an alias.

    Most importantly, though, there does not seem to be any way to get support for the product. There is no communication channel or user forum. I emailed the only address on their site some months ago about both problems and have no even received an acknowledgement.
