Built for busy professionals who value their time.
Chat apps and social media sites allow you to accept, decline, or block a request before anyone is allowed to message you.
With email, everyone is allowed to message you. Using MailOverload, only email senders you’ve approved can reach your inbox.
If an unapproved email arrives, it’s turned into a connection request that you can approve, decline, or even block.
Now only important email, that you approve, gets through to your inbox. Unimportant email stops stealing your valuable time.
"MailOverload works for me because it fixes having an Inbox full of crap email, forcing me to spend my time discerning if it is important or not." -- Victor Lopez, Media Director, Havas Media
Tell me more...
On LinkedIn, you must approve an invite to receive messages.
On Skype, you must approve a contact request to receive messages.
On Facebook, you must approve a friend request to receive messages.
On Email, you receive messages from EVERYONE. No approval required, or even available.
Email was built over 40 years ago. It was created for a time when very few people used it. It was exciting and rare to receive an email back then.
Today, with billions of people online, Social Media & Chat apps are built to handle the overwhelm of messages. But email has been left behind.
MailOverload brings your existing email account up-to-date. We add the missing tools that automatically filter out the overload in today's busy world.
"I've come to rely on MailOverload. Love it in fact. Now I have a well prioritized inbox, and review less important emails on my terms. MailOverload is a brilliant." -- Neil Baller, DSGN SOLN
How does it work?
Just like LinkedIn, Facebook, and Skype blocking unapproved messages, MailOverload adds this missing layer to your email.
You get started by simply granting MailOverload the ability to sit on top of your existing email account.
When new email arrives, MailOverload turns it into a connection request. If you approve the request, all future email goes straight to your inbox.
Otherwise, unapproved emails are moved into a different folder, never interrupting you. You can either approve, decline, or block them.
You can always read your unapproved emails, they're simply in another folder. But you're never alerted to them. They don't steal your valuable time and interrupt your day.
MailOverload feels like magic. It was built for busy professionals who value their time. You have nothing to download, install or learn. It just works.
MailOverload syncs across all of your devices and works on any email client. Phone, Tablet, Desktop, Web Browser, Apple Mail, Outlook - Wherever!
"It's cut WAY down on the stuff that gets through to my inbox. I've been a Gmail user since it first rolled out and I'm a heavy user of filters. Even so, I've still been getting LOT's of useless crap. With MailOverload, I don't. Nicely done!" -- Pete W.C., Medical Doctor
Who is MailOverload?
I'm Chris Dritsas, the guy behind MailOverload. I'm a father of 2 young toddlers, I work a full-time job, and am the sole breadwinner for my family. I don't have a lot of free time, but I'm building this because I'm sick of email.
Yes. Email is broken, I'm sick of it, and I'm fixing it.
- I'm sick and tired of email interrupting my day and stealing my free time.
- I'm sick and tired of others having the power and control to cause this interruption.
- I'm sick and tired of seeing hundreds of unread emails clogging my inbox.
- I'm sick and tired of being forced to sift through the overwhelm to find the ones that are important to me.
Sure. There are "hacks" for some of these issues, but none of them work for me. None of them fully solve the problem.
In fact, they all require a lot of "work." I have enough work, I don't need more. I want to click a button and have this problem solved.
I leave my email open all day long, my phone vibrates and chimes so that important messages can reach me. Turning this off is not an option. I need to be accessible.

...shouldn't be interrupting my day.
Sure, I might want to read all of that, but on my time, when I choose, not when you choose.
Just like LinkedIn, Facebook, and Skype, I want to be in control of who can message me. I want to approve a "connection request" before you have access to my inbox.
But email doesn't work this way. With email, EVERYONE has access to my inbox.
