Silent Inbox for Gmail
Read unimportant emails and newsletters when you want, not when they hit the inbox and distract you from work
Email newsletters distract you from important tasks during the day. What if you could miss a message from your colleague, a help request from a user? Or even a Gmail security alert?
I'm in the same shoes. My favorite local book store has something interesting for the weekend reading. And that new post from a well known Substack writer is good as hell.
But they all can wait on a street until we allowed them to come in and take our focus.
I’ve built the add-on to resolve this pain for myself and folks like me
Silent Inbox plugs into your Gmail to detect distracting senders 24/7. It holds emails until a scheduled time and then delivers in bulk. Just when you drink your morning coffee or 5 o'clock tea.
From the start, the add-on automatically detects email newsletters. Plus, you can add other senders to the Muted List. Those who "forgot" to include "unsubscribe" links. Or whose amount of emails during the day is annoying.
BASIC VS. PREMIUM
The Basic account allows you to schedule delivery for any time once a day. In addition to automatically detected email newsletters, you can add up to 10 other senders to the Muted List.
With the Premium account, you can change the frequency from "once a day" to "twice a day" or "once a week". And your number of senders in the Muted List is unlimited.
The price for a premium account is $17/year. The basic account is free.
Go install the add-on and take advantage of it right now.

Here you will find information describing the data collected by our website (the «Website») and via our Gmail Add-on «Silent Inbox» (the «Add-on»), hereinafter called the «Service».
As a general code of conduct, we always try our best to minimize the amount of information we need to collect and use, while still providing you with the highest level of Service.
The Limited Use Disclosure
The Add-on uses two restricted scopes to access your data via Gmail API.
The https://www.googleapis.com/auth/gmail.settings.basic scope allows the add-on to create and delete (if you request it) your Gmail Filters in order to manage Threads using the native Gmail filter system so that the add-on can bring filtered Threads back to your Inbox.
The https://www.googleapis.com/auth/gmail.modify scope allows the Add-on to create and delete (if you request it) your Gmail Labels in order to assign them to threads that were filtered by the Filters so that the add-on can help you manage emails flow. Also, this scope allows us to list, get, modify Threads. We need to list Threads with a query, get Thread out of search results, and modify them in order to apply the Add-on’s settings (by adding Labels) to Threads you already have in your Inbox so that the add-on can provide declared value.
The protection of your data is important to us. We are striving to use, to the best of our knowledge, available means of protection. However, please be aware that no method of transmission over the internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure or reliable, and we cannot guarantee the absolute security of the Service.
We may employ third-party companies and individuals due to the following reasons: to facilitate our Service; to provide the Service on our behalf; to perform Service-related services; or to assist us in analyzing how our Service is used.
We do not collect on our servers or transfer information from your Threads or Messages to other services or humans.
We will share the data we collected about you for any legal obligations and rights. We may disclose your personal information in these circumstances: In connection with the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims; to comply with laws or to respond to lawful requests or legal process; for fraud or security monitoring purposes (e.g., to detect and prevent cyberattacks); to protect our rights or our employees rights; or as otherwise permitted by applicable law.
Each access to our Website generates logs data that includes, but may not be limited to: your IP address, your web browser user-agent, the language preferences of your web browser, the date and time of your visits.
Each access to our Add-on generates logs data that includes your email address, the date and time of your visit, and statistics for your inbox.
We may use your personal information for legitimate business purposes, including: to provide and deliver the Services you request; send you transaction information; including confirmations and transaction status; product and services information, updates, security alerts, support and administrative messages; administer your account, including verifying your information; respond to your comments and questions and provide customer support or other services; operate and improve our websites, products and services; provide you with information about products and services; perform other functions or serve other purposes, as disclosed to you at the point of collection, or as otherwise required or allowed under applicable law.
