Read unimportant emails and newsletters when you want, not when they hit the inbox and distract you from work.

Works with:
Email newsletters distract you from important tasks during the day. What if you could miss a message from your colleague, a help request from a user? Or even a Gmail security alert?

I'm in the same shoes. My favorite local book store has something interesting for the weekend reading. And that new post from a well known Substack writer is good as hell. But they all can wait on a street until we allowed them to come in and take our focus.


Silent Inbox plugs into your Gmail to detect distracting senders 24/7. It holds emails until a scheduled time and then delivers in bulk. Just when you drink your morning coffee or 5 o'clock tea.

From the start, the add-on automatically detects email newsletters. Plus, you can add other senders to the Muted List. Those who "forgot" to include "unsubscribe" links. Or whose amount of emails during the day is annoying.


The Basic account allows you to schedule delivery for any time once a day. In addition to automatically detected email newsletters, you can add up to 10 other senders to the Muted List.

With the Premium account, you can change the frequency from "once a day" to "twice a day" or "once a week". And your number of senders in the Muted List is unlimited.

The price for a premium account is $17/year. The basic account is free.


Silent Inbox is compliant with Gmail privacy policy requirements listed on a page We do not collect on our servers or transfer information from your Threads or Messages to other services or humans. Your data doesn't leave Gmail servers and is fully protected by Google services.
