You can add more than one e-mail widget to your page. You can use the green Add button or click the grey Add buttons at the bottom of every column.
It's also possible to add more than one provider to a single E-mail widget.
2. Add Google mail [back to top]
Since Google Mail is one of the biggest e-mail providers out there, you can easily add it to your E-mail widget. Click 'Add provider' and choose 'Google mail'. The technique we use is the Google API, which doesn't give us any control over your e-mail. It only allows us to show
3. Add any other provider [back to top]
We currently support the following e-mail providers:
- All other browsers that support IMAP
In order to deliver your content to your start page, we rely on the service of Context.io.
Context.IO anonymizes your e-mail content and uses it commercially to improve spam filters, detect and help stop phishing attacks, and help companies adopt best practices.
All personal information (such as names, email addresses, and postal addresses) is removed. No part of the anonymized data can be traced to a specific email account.
4. Context menu [back to top]
To open the context menu of your E-mail widget, you can click the Downward arrow in the top right corner. You add a new e-mail provider here. By clicking the Refresh button you make sure your E-mail widget is up to date.
Press F5 or click the browser window button.
The context menu also allows you to copy the widget to another page or move it entirely.
Finally, you can also enter our Settings pane, delete the widget (careful: there's no recovery possible) and access the Help section (this very article).
5. General Settings [back to top]
In the General settings pane, you change the title of your widget. Here you also determine the number of messages your widget will show and the e-mail information the widget will display.
The final choice you can make here is to change the icon by uploading your own or selecting one from our database. Click Done to save your changes.
6. Background settings [back to top
Change the color of your widget. Set the transparency to blend into the background.
