Take a break from email. Be Free.

Meet INBOX PAUSE - the paradigm-shiftingest, game-changingest email innovation of 2012! For decades, your Inbox has been under the control of others, who have had the power to interrupt your flow and take over what you are doing. Today, you control when messages appear in your Inbox. With INBOX PAUSE, you can put new messages on hold, making it so they won't appear in your Inbox until you are ready for them. Paradigm shifted. Game changed.
Note: This was a hackathon project, so it may not be as stable as our core products. If something goes wrong, here's how to fix it!

How it works

INBOX PAUSE adds a pause button to your Gmail. Inbox Pause Button
When you click that button, new messages will stop arriving in your Inbox.
  • They will be held in a special label until you are ready for them.
  • If you choose, INBOX PAUSE can notify the people who email you to let them know that their message will not be delivered to your Inbox.
  • While your Inbox is paused, you'll see a banner at the top of your Gmail window like this:
It's paused message
When you unpause your Inbox, all of the messages that you received during the break will be moved to your Inbox, and new messages will arrive as before. Inbox Pause Button
