  • Instant folder views and search results.
  • Endless, smooth scrolling of folder contents.
  • Drag & drop message selection and moving to folders.
  • Incremental, instant search functionality.

The new webmail will be the cornerstone of Runbox 7, and is the first of several development stages that will culminate in a completely new user interface.

Please read on for details about Runbox 7 Webmail and how you can participate in the closed beta test.

Superior speed

Runbox 7 started with a crazy idea:

How can we create a webmail that’s not just faster, but responds instantly?

The solution we developed is a combination of database accelerated email storage, innovative message indexing, and cutting-edge web technology.

When you log into Runbox 7 Webmail, you enter a modern webmail environment built with Angular 5 and Material Design. Your email folders and messages will be shown instantly, giving you an immediate overview of your email.

The spacious layout, clean lines, and powerful engine lets you efficiently navigate the new features and get down to the business of effectively managing your email.

Incremental search

One of the core features of Runbox 7 Webmail is its search capabilities. We have built the search functionality in such a way that the browser doesn’t need to query the server at all.

Not only that, but this webmail will show you search results incrementally while you are typing in the Search field.

You have better things to do than waiting for search results, so we put a lot of effort into making the search function as fast as possible — and this is as fast as it’s possible to get.

Lots of cool functionality

Infinite listing: No more clicking back and forth to navigate your Inbox — just scroll down and the next messages will load automatically.

Threaded view: Want to see your messages in conversation view? Just tick the Threaded checkbox to the top right.

Unread messages: Only interested in the latest news? Tick the Unread checkbox.

Multi-select messages: Want to select many messages in a hurry? Just click the check box  of a message, and drag up or down while holding the mouse button down to select several messages in a row.

Preview pane: Who has time to actually open a message? Just select one in the list and a preview will be shown in the bottom half of the message list pane. To see more, click the ^ arrow in the preview menu.

Hide folders: Want more space for your messages? Just click the icon to the left of the Search area to hide the folder pane.

Draft Desk

Another key feature of Runbox 7 Webmail is the Draft Desk — a completely new way of  managing drafts.

In our world of non-stop online communication, we often find ourselves multitasking and working on several threads in parallel. With our new Draft Desk you get a full overview of the messages you are currently working on, previewed side by side in an efficient interface.

Simply click on a draft preview to expand it, write down your thoughts, and send, save, or close the message to return to it later.

Mobile ready

We believe that you shouldn’t have to switch between different apps or user interfaces just because you switch between a laptop, a tablet, or a smart phone.

Therefore we built Runbox 7 Webmail to be mobile-ready and responsive from the ground up. This means that it will automatically adapt to your device’s screen size and orientation while retaining the basic functionality you are used to from a regular browser.

  1. Looks like all the trash was moved back in the folders. I can’t delete multiple messages or move them in bulk.

    I realize Runbox 7 is in BETA and I feel excited to participate, as well as offer feedback.

    Thanks Runbox,you Rock!

  2. This is fantastic.

    I want to point out that you are misusing the term “radio button.” By definition, a ratio button feature only allows one value to be selected. So, your feature is a “check box,” even if not visually depicted as actual checks in boxes.

    1. Thanks for your comment. We used “radio button” to avoid confusion because they visually looked like radio buttons. This has since changed and they now appear more like check boxes, so we have updated the post to reflect this.
