slimail - Email Cleanup Service

What We Like

  • Watch video links instantly.

  • Cleans up subject lines.

  • Removes duplicate emails.

What We Don't Like

  • Not encrypted.

  • Not popular.

´╗┐slimail not only cleans up all those fun forwards you receive (no more wading through long boring paragraphs to find a tiny link), it also blocks duplicate messages, simplifies subjects, lets you block content while you're away and comes with a rating system.

It's really a pity slimail cannot clean existing email accounts. You get a new address instead, which forwards to your current one.
