Our Story

MailDeck was founded in 2012 to change one of the most ubiquitous forms of communication in the world: email. We started by building the MailDeck email app to tame inboxes and increase productivity, but in the process we quickly realized that the inbox was only half the battle. That?s why, in addition to our top-rated email app, we?ve created a new technology that is changing emails themselves. We are upgrading the way that people engage and interact with their email, and providing brands actionable insights coupled with more control over the content they are delivering to their subscribers.
