When we launched Mailbrew originally, it was meant to just send you a daily email with your favorite Twitter accounts, RSS Feeds, YouTube channels, and more. Newsletters slowly become a central part of the product.
These days the greatest content on the Internet is published via email newsletters — and now more than ever they deserve their own space, away from the clutter of your inbox.
With our latest update, Mailbrew becomes the perfect place to calmly enjoy newsletters from your favorite writers and curators.
Subscribe to any newsletter with your custom Mailbrew address (firstname.lastname@example.org), and you can:
Save issues to read them later.
Tag newsletters to read them in separate tabs and digests.
Pick yourfavorites to make sure you don't miss them.
We also polished the reading experience and added tons of improvements that make Mailbrew became the most powerful newsletter reader out there.
Tagging & Favorites
This is the greatest feature you didn't know you needed. You can tag and favorite newsletters, and read them in dedicated feeds/digests based on the topics that interest you.
In a way, this is the first time you have the efficiency of an RSS reader but built from the ground up for newsletters.
For example, here are the tags I use:
Tags that currently don't have anything new in them are dimmed. If you have many interests and subscribe to many newsletters, this is a killer feature. I can quickly read on a topic based on my mood.
When you are done with a tag, you can "Archive all". Try it, it's pretty satisfying:
You can also favorite newsletters and see them in a dedicated feed. I usually get my favorites in my morning digest and leave all other newsletters to read for the weekend via the web app.
We provide you with a page to manage all your newsletter subscriptions. You can quickly identify them at a glance thanks to the preview of the latest issue you received from them.
You can unsubscribe easily by "Blocking" a sender. Once blocked, a sender won't appear anymore in your feeds or digests. You can as easily unblock them if you change your mind. No need to hunt down for that unsubscribe link at the bottom of newsletters.
We also implemented some tech to suggests which newsletters you should unsubscribe from. We average out of many of the latest issues of a newsletter you have actually been reading and show this in each newsletter card as a rating:
As you can see the newsletter on the left has a rating of 2 because I almost never read it (I should probably unsubscribe), while the one on the left has a rating of 7, which means I read most of the issues.
We save how far off you have read all issues of your newsletters, and if you go back to one of them, we present a keep reading button that scrolls to your latest reading position. This works across devices, so you can start reading on your phone and complete reading on your tablet.
Rolling up your email newsletters in a digest
You can get the newsletters you want in a digest delivered to you on your own schedule. The digest contains all the newsletters received since the previous digest, filtered by favorite or by a tag of your choice.
It's like a rollup of your newsletters, a single email with all of them, instead of individual emails for each one of your subscriptions.
Sharing Newsletters with Friends
You can quickly share newsletters with your friends or social networks with one click.
You get this short share URL, that looks great when shared and shows a preview of the actual content, like this:
