No. Slimbox detects subscription emails by scanning only the underlying code of the emails. Slimbox does not have the capability to read the content of your email.
Slimbox provides a daily summary that lists all your clutter from the past 24 hours. This summary email contains links that allow you to easily view your Slimbox emails right from your inbox. In order to do this, the Slimbox application needs to request the “view and modify” permission from Google. Slimbox does not have the capability to read the content of your email.
Slimbox is a simple tool that works with Gmail to declutter your inbox. Subscription-style emails are moved out of your inbox and summarized for you in a single email each morning.
Slimbox securely connects to your Gmail and detects promotional and subscription emails by scanning only the underlying code of the emails (not the content). This scan happens in about 5 seconds. This identified “clutter” is then presented to you for a quick review. With one click, Slimbox instantly creates filters and moves existing email from as many of these senders as you wish out of your inbox.
Because Slimbox creates filters directly in your Gmail, any future clutter is instantly and securely moved out of your inbox, and it is easily accessible through the #Slimbox folder. Slimbox also sends you a daily summary of the email that has been moved out of your way, so you’ll never miss a thing.
You can access your clutter emails anytime in the #Slimbox folder that is created in your Gmail. But you don’t have to remember to check the #Slimbox folder because a summary of your clutter messages arrives each morning, showing you a list of all the clutter that was moved out of your way.
Yes! You decide which emails remain in your inbox and which are moved to the #Slimbox folder and sent to you in the daily summary. If Slimbox detects new clutter, it will ask you to decide if you want to keep it in your inbox.
No. Slimbox simply moves designated subscription messages into the #Slimbox folder that is automatically created for you, so those messages are easily accessible at any time — they are just out of your way and presented to you in a single daily email. Indeed, Slimbox cannot delete your email at all; it simply moves email out of your inbox.
Yes. Slimbox doesn’t touch your existing filters. Your inbox will continue to work smoothly as it always has. The only difference is that your clutter messages will also be labeled #Slimbox and moved out of your way.
Yes. Simply go to the Delete My Account page and delete your account. All forthcoming subscription messages will come into your email the same way as before you activated Slimbox.
We currently support Gmail and Google Apps (G Suite). But if you have Yahoo, AOL, Outlook, Hotmail, or select non-Gmail accounts, you can easily link that account to a Gmail account and receive all your messages in Gmail. The process to “Gmailify” an email account in this way is explained at Gmail Help.
Not yet, but we are working on this feature. If you want Slimbox to operate on another email account, you need to sign up for it with that other account.
Yes. Many of the subscription messages that you would typically find in Gmail tabs will be moved to your #Slimbox folder. What's great about this is that these messages are removed from your inbox on all your email clients, so your inbox is decluttered no matter how you view it (including on your phone). In fact, once you’ve activated Slimbox, you can turn Gmail tabs off entirely and get back to a simpler inbox where you’re in charge.
Any device that gets Gmail supports Slimbox! Because Slimbox uses native Gmail filters there is nothing extra to download or install. This means you can experience a decluttered inbox on any device or app that has Gmail.

Slimbox is completely free to try for 30 days, with no payment information needed. If you want to keep it, it is $1 per month, billed every three months.

If after 30 days you decide that Slimbox isn't for you, it will simply turn off: All Slimbox filters will be removed, and you'll no longer receive a daily summary. Your account settings will be saved for one week in case you change your mind. After this grace period, Slimbox will deactivate your account. You can always come back, but you'll just have to go through the initial scan again as Slimbox won't remember you.
