The beloved email app Newton Mail was originally scheduled for termination at the end of April along with its parent company, Essential, before two super fans stepped in. Software vets Maitrik Kataria and Justin Mitchell purchased Newton Mail from Essential and plan not only to keep the app running, but thriving.
Kataria and Mitchell have promised to roll out new features (like Dark mode) within the next three-to-six months, as well as fix the bugs and occasional crashes that have been plaguing the service for some time. They’re also offering special deals for loyal and past subscribers, too. If you currently subscribe to Newton Mail, you’re going to get the next three months free. If you’ve previously subscribed, you can sign up again and get a 20-percent-off discount. There’s also a new referral program to incentivize subscribers to get their friends on Newton Mail as well. Like the past, the service costs $50 per year.

Newton Mail is a premium email mail that’s designed for power users and businesses. Back in 2016, it was one of the few email apps that had features like snoozing, read receipts and scheduling. It also works seamlessly across Mac and Windows 10 devices, which is still a novel feature. Even though many of its features have been adopted by numerous other email apps, like Gmail, Outlook and Spark, Newton Mail has obviously developed a strong relationship with its users — which is why the app seemingly isn’t going anywhere.
