Rambox Screenshot 1

Rambox is a versatile, open-source messaging and email management software that aims to simplify the way you interact with various messaging and email services. It essentially acts as a unified communication hub, allowing you to bring together your favorite messaging apps and email accounts into one convenient location. Developed by Ramiro Saenz, the program is available for Windows, macOS, and Linux, making it a cross-platform solution for anyone looking to streamline their digital communications.

Sessions will persist using the partition: persist attribute for Webviews. So every time you open Rambox, your sessions will keep alive until you remove the service. Sync feature uses Auth0 for Single Sign-On & Token Based Authentication and to store the services that the user is using (and the configuration for each service like Name, Align, Icon, etc).

Key Features

Unified Interface: It provides a single, organized dashboard where you can access all your messaging apps and email accounts.

Multi-Account Support: You can add multiple instances of the same service or multiple services from the same provider, giving you complete flexibility.

Customization: Customize each service's appearance with different themes, notification settings, and even custom CSS if you're tech-savvy.

Built-in Web Viewer: A built-in web viewer lets you interact with web-based services directly within Rambox, reducing the need to open a web browser.

Cross-Platform Sync: Sync your settings and accounts across multiple devices for a consistent experience.

Global Search: Quickly find conversations and emails across all your accounts with Rambox's global search functionality.

Productivity Features: Keyboard shortcuts, unread message badges, and do-not-disturb mode help you manage your communication efficiently.

Security: It takes your privacy seriously, providing password protection and the ability to lock the app when not in use.
