What you need to know
- OnMail now allows everyone to add their existing email accounts to the app.
- Other improvements include new improvements to the Accept Sender functionality.
OnMail, an email service run by Edison, has made some changes to allow people to get more out of it across multiple devices including iOS. Top of the list is the ability for all free-tier users to import their existing email accounts into the app. That feature was previously limited to those who paid for the service.
The move means that those who already have accounts from Gmail, Outlook, and even iCloud can now read and send email using the OnMail app. That, the outfit says, immediately levels up your existing email account in new ways.
OnMail now also has new tools for making it easier to quieten your inbox. Blocking as ender is now quicker than before, while new notification controls mean that you will now receive repeat emails from an account, even if you're yet to approve it for email receipt. That allows you the added confidence that you'll never miss an email, even if you're yet to approve someone.
