SquadMail – Share Email With Your Cohorts


Remembering to ’CC or ’BCC your colleagues on any important emails you send or receive from company clients can be a drag. The situation can be even worse when you forget to include a particular colleague on an important email chain, and the person misses out on key parts of an ongoing conversation as a result. SquadMail offers a solution to these problems, providing small offices and professional teams with shared email folders that work across all email clients.

In just a few seconds, you can start automatically sharing client emails with everyone on your work team. Head to to see a news feed – arranged in chronological order – that displays all the activity in your shared email folders. Create new shared folders for all the projects you’ve got going on in your personal and professional life, and invite colleagues or friends to participate by clicking on a button located within the SquadMail app. Select any emails you’d like to share by going to your email client and dragging those selected emails into the SquadMail folders you’ve set up. Any replies you send to those emails will be saved within the folder and distributed throughout the group. Meanwhile, every folder you create with SquadMail will get its own email address, which you’ll use when sending messages to the entire team.

By relying primarily on a private group email address to communicate online, people can avoid getting as many unsolicited spam messages in their inboxes. They can also reduce redundancy and decrease the chances of ’CCing the wrong person about private company matters.

Practical Uses:

  • Keep track of the progress of an important project you’ve been working on
  • Avoid accidentally ’CCing the wrong person on a private email thread
  • Save all the messages about your upcoming wedding in a shared email folder
  • Never forget to include your assistant in any scheduling emails
  • Share documents with everyone on your team in seconds
