Dropbox Bids Goodbye To Mailbox

Even before Mailbox was launched in early 2013, more than 1 million people signed up in order to try this app. A month after the release of this app, when it was at its height of popularity, Dropbox bought it for $100 million. When the Mailbox team joined Dropbox, they shared a passion for making it simple for people working together; hence solving the email problems seemed like the first priority.
Mailbox bought a change in mobile email, adding new features and innovations. The company states,
“When the Mailbox team joined Dropbox in 2013, we shared a passion for simplifying the way people work together. And solving the email problem seemed like a strong complement to the challenges Dropbox was already tackling.”
Dropbox in their official blog informed that they are going to end Mailbox, on February 26, 2016. They informed,
“It’s with heavy hearts that we let you know we’ll be shutting down Mailbox on February 26, 2016.”
The company bids goodbye to Mailbox, stating,
“We know saying goodbye to Mailbox will be hard for many. To help make the transition to a new email client easier, we’ve created guides and export tools. For more specifics around how we’ll be winding down Mailbox.”

Dropbox also thank and appreciated users, who have tried and used Mailbox over the years, and provided with a feedback to improve the emailing app. The company stated,
“Thank you to everyone who helped bring Mailbox to life, whether by spreading the word, letting us know what you liked (and didn’t like), or simply using the product. You taught us so much, and we’re deeply grateful.”
