We wanted to learn from the savviest and most demanding users. We knew that if we continued to build and vet our product here, we would have a beautiful service ready for the rest of the country.

Outbox, the beautiful inbox for your postal mail, is now generally available to all residents in San Francisco. Residents can trial Outbox free for 30 days and access, organize and unsubscribe from their postal mail anytime, anywhere, by signing up at https://www.outboxmail.com/.

Upon signup and setup, Outbox’s team of unpostmen will go to a user’s mailbox three times a week to retrieve their mail, then bring it back to Outbox’s secure mail warehouse where the mail is digitized and delivered via the Web, iOS and Android apps. If the user ever wants a piece of mail delivered to them, they can make the request from any of the apps and receive the mail in one to two days. Features like reminders and to-do lists assure users stay on top of important dates and deadlines.

Outbox launched into a limited beta in San Francisco in February 2013, following a successful closed beta in Austin, Texas. The beta periods were critical to developing a scalable model for bringing Outbox to new cities around the nation. Over 300,000 pieces of mail have been digitized and delivered to Outbox customers in their inbox to date. The company has granted access to all Bay Area customers on the wait list, and is now onboarding all new customers in San Francisco effectively immediately.

“We encountered a completely new set of challenges in San Francisco during our beta — population density, unique mailbox environments and more, “ said Evan Baehr, co-founder. “We also encountered a beta community with a forgiving nature, constant feedback and enthusiastic support. We are so grateful to that community and thrilled to offer Outbox to the entire city for the first time today. We wanted to learn from the savviest and most demanding users. We knew that if we continued to build and vet our product here, we would have a beautiful service ready for the rest of the country. The past months in San Francisco have been an amazing experience for us, and we’re excited to finally open up Outbox city-wide.”

The company has spent the last six months perfecting San Francisco operations. Following their recent Series A round of financing, Outbox has been focused on building out their team and operations base.

The company also partnered with NatureBox, Sesame and Quarterly for their new referral program, Outbox Gifts. Outbox users can received unique, hand-selected gifts delivered straight to their doorstep on specific referrals. Referred friends can try Outbox for free for two months and receive a special NatureBox of their own.

You can download Outbox on iOS and Android for free, or access it on the Web at http://www.outboxmail.com.
