Love the screener feature and how easy it's to use. I remember I used to set up filters for different from addresses on my Gmail and Fastmail accounts. On HEY it's just a single Yes/No.

It's amazing how email the screener has made me realize that I receive but don't necessarily want—stuff that's not spam but also just clutter.

Yup, exactly. Like salespeople bugging you to buy stuff all the time.

This is what I talked about with an example sales pitch on my article a few days back: https://hulry.com/hey-email-review/#the-screener

It's so good that I can now screen bugging senders out with a single click.

I haven't really gotten hooked on Hey yet, but I LOVE the screener. I wish I could just use that feature on top of my existing inbox.

Pretty sure other email clients will bring this feature in the future. It's quite doable. Looking forward to Spark Email to do this first.

If you mark your emails set aside or reply later on your hey.com mobile app, then they are available for offline viewing on your device.

The "Set Aside" feature is very clever, basically an Instapaper+to-do list for email.

Exactly I think thats the best feature. Still exploring and looking for main USPs to stick to hey.com in future.

Their "The Feed" feature may be my favorite so far, with the way it shows all your newsletters in one combined newsfeed. The "Read Together" feature works the same, too, for a way to actually skim through your inbox and not just skim subject lines.
