Inbox 2

Inbox2 is a premium connected lifestyle application that brings communication – and the people you communicate with – into a single, synchronized application that is accessible everywhere. The innovative email platform allows you to plug-in your existing email accounts (Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail, Exchange) or any custom IMAP/POP3 accounts and social networks (Facebook, LinkedIn, Hyves, Yammer, Twitter) in one application. I downloaded the desktop client and used it and it is pretty neat! Having the few social networks and emails saves me browser space and a single application taking care of it all! Download inbox2
