For the last three years, I’ve been working on a totally new Mail Pilot. More than that, it’s a totally new way to do email.

Today, I want to share the first look at what I’ve been cooking up:

This new Mail Pilot represents a dramatic shift in every part of building and using an email client, but I’ll save that and more for the coming weeks.

Right now, the new Mail Pilot is being tested by 1,000 customers who pre-ordered the app. It’s been in testing with increasing batches of pre-order customers since last year, and I’ve been working closely with them to make sure we’re developing the right solution for today’s problems.

Many of the conversations we’ve had in our Slack workspace have led to some pretty fundamental additions or changes. Having a community of early users in Slack has been a huge part of building this new generation of Mail Pilot apps.

The community has always been responsible for making Mail Pilot happen, from its earliest days on Kickstarter, to its more recent reboot. Building with the Mail Pilot community is a natural fit, and it serves to make this Mail Pilot truly great.

I can’t wait to share more with you, so stay tuned. More to come in the weeks ahead!

Youll never look at email the same way again.
Eight years ago, we first reimagined email.
Now, we've done it again.
Thank you, we will be in touch soon!
