Scan Your Messages Easily

Your email is often something you want close at hand but never in the way. Whether you want to see the latest message or the recent message list, Mail Perspective's compact window design means your email can always be visually available, but never the focus of your attention until you need it.

Monitor Important Mailboxes

Sure your inbox is important -- but if you are like many Mail users, you probably have several mailboxes which are just as important if not more so. Use Mail Perspectives to create a compact Perspective window for each of your critical mailboxes. Use the All/New/Today bar to tailor which messages they will show.

Tame Mail Window Chaos

Navigating Mail's windows can be a handful when you want to open different viewers, mailboxes to find messages. With Mail Perspectives you can set up multi-paned windows. Expand the space when you need it and hide all windows with a keystroke. It's like coming home to tranquility after a busy afternoon of running errands.

Windows Into Organization

Mail Perspectives provides multiple views to Mail to give you new ways to keep your Mail workspace both visually and efficiently organized.

Flexible Perspectives Windows

Designed to show you only the essentials, Perspective windows can be display with either single or multiple panes for easy grouping and movement around the screen. A pane represents a mailbox whose the criteria can be set separately.
