This premium email service is a reinvention of the classic email account. The platform provides thorough screening services, an important-mail-only inbox, and a mail-generated newsfeed. HEY also boasts a unique 'Reply Later' feature, as well as a dedicated inbox for transactions.
The service deploys a special 'Imbox', an inbox guaranteed to hold only truly important correspondence. To achieve this, HEY filters every email from a new address through The Screener. This lets you control who will get in touch with you.
Mail turned feed
In the Feed section, the platform presents your newsletters, promotional content, and similar mail as a newsfeed. It's an experience a lot closer to that provided by social media browsing.
The Reply Later feature lets you build a queue of correspondence, stacked at the bottom of your feed. You can get around to answering these messages whenever you want to.
It's a lot more purposeful than marking an email as 'unread'.
Paper trail & attachment library
In its bid to simplify communication, HEY email keeps all your receipts and transaction records in the Paper Trail module. This keeps important information from being lost, without cluttering your inbox in the process.
Similarly, the Attachment Library keeps you from wasting valuable time searching for attached files. Instead of tracking down emails to access your attachments, the platform houses them all in one place.
Unlike free email services, HEY doesn't sell your data or breach your privacy. Instead, the company charges a moderate, annual price for an @hey.com email address. Vanity addresses with short names have higher prices.
Email, but better
HEY provides a curated email user experience that can change the way you interact with your inbox. Easy to use, intuitive, and fun, the platform is well-suited for its purpose. It's a tad on the pricey side, though the lack of advertising and increased privacy may well be worth it.
