We can set you up with an annual license of ActiveInbox Plus so you can try it, no questions asked. Just tell us your website/magazine via and we'll get you set up.

What's unique?

  • We are Google Inbox for professionals - because working people have complex task lists to manage which Inbox can't handle.
  • We simply enhance the tool you know and love (Gmail) to give you far more control over emails.
  • ActiveInbox is more than just an email tool, it combines your email client and task manager into one, simplifying your work.
  • Even if you just want a better Gmail (and not a task manager), it's the only tool in the world that allows you to do things like prioritizing emails by dragging them to the top of your Today list

  • Backup and Sync your preferences
  • 24/7 customer support via email and forum
  • Secure data storage

Who Is It For?

  • Anyone who's work lives in email: especially freelancers, team managers in companies, customer service agents, PA's (i.e. people for whom Gmail is the center of their daily workflow, but they don't have a big company project manager)
  • People who love GTD® (we used to be called GTDInbox!)

Key Stats and Figures

  • Cost: 2 week free trial. Then $39.95 p/a for our Solo licence

Our History

  • Started in 2006, as GTDGmail (before a legal tussle or two with corporate lawyers), as a week-long side project to create a cheap customer support tool in Gmail.
  • Received $20,000 in (initially unsolicited) donations from 700 fans, the greatest individual donation being an incredible $300.
  • Became a company in 2009, based in Brighton in the UK. We operate as a tiny handful of core people with lots more specialist skills contributing from all around the world. We believe this is an exciting blueprint for any Web company.
  • As of 2012, we are totally bootstrapped (no investment), profitable and rapidly gaining momentum.

We can reduce your email overload

You are one of our core groups that we want to help because, transparent promotional bribery aside, you suffer a very one-sided (as in, everyone wants to talk to you) overflowing influx of email.

You can find our current best practices in our Documentation, but we're not finished improving yet… so come and request feature ideas in our Forum, let us know you're a journalist, and we'll sweet talk you and improve things until you're giggling with joy.

Do you want Andy to advise you on dealing with a busy inbox?

We would happily do a one-to-one chat with you to listen to what difficulties you have with email, and suggest how you might solve them -- or even how we could improve ActiveInbox to solve them. Just email me:
