#5 Product of the DayNovember 07, 2018

Say Adiós to unnecessary interruptions!

How it works:

1. Emails only get delivered into your inbox at the times you specify (e.g. 7am, 1pm and 5pm).

2. Choose email exceptions, which will always be delivered immediately (e.g.

3. Need to access an email urgently? No problem - just click 'Deliver emails now' in Adiós.

    Useful idea


    I'd be worried that Google will add this to Gmail someday.

    If Google doesn't add this, I'd be worried about a developer making an add-on. it is a time-based rule that diverts e-mails to folder and then dumps them back to the inbox at certain times.

  • Pros: 

    - It helps eliminate distractions of constant emails flooding your inbox.

    - Schedule them for the time(s) that works best


    -Wish they would add ability to Whitelist entire domains (They are already looking into this though)

    Have been using this for about a month and love that I don't get distracted by constant flow of emails throughout the day. All emails are attached to a label if you really want to "peek" before the scheduled delivery time(s) you've set-up.

Hi everyone. Makers of here. Harry and I are super excited to see this appear on Product Hunt today! Nice surprise. Happy to take any questions. We built Adios to solve our own problem: email was killing our productivity. The constant context switching every time a new email jumped in. Getting to the end of the day, and feeling like all we'd been doing is answering emails. Receiving emails 3 times a day (I choose 8am, 1pm and 5pm) has been totally game changing. Some of the, perhaps unexpected, advantages: - I don’t have to watch internal threads evolve (I’m effectively only getting a summary digest every 5 hours). To my delight, problems that in the past I would have jumped on to solve, are often solved by someone else long before I even see them. - I’ve noticed other people’s behaviour change: the emails I receive now are far more succinct and “actionable” than they ever were before. In the past, emails would be more like conversations. Now (presumably because I reply to any chain max 3 times a day) the conversation is far more focused on getting things done. - And I no longer receive emails at unsociable hours (after 5pm I never receive another email until 8am). As a result I’m happier, more focused at work, and I’m sleeping better at nights. Look forward to your feedback. :)

I've been doing this for the last few weeks, although sometimes I slip up and check it more often! Sometimes you are just waiting by for an email ha.

It looks like something I really need. I'm going to give it a try for a couple of weeks, but as always "with great power comes great responsibility" so guys, don't fuck this up 😉

Very clean design, great work on the UI. Signed up and have everything setup in just a couple of minutes. As an old user of unroll, it's nice to see a new free service like this. Only question I have is how do you plan to make money?

hey @luikohl . Great question. We don't. A while back we wrote a bunch of Google App Scripts to schedule our emails 3 times a day, and has been game-changing for us and our productivity. Wanted to share this with the world. Took us 10 days to build, and costs us nothing to run. No intention to monetize (we run a BI platform called which pays our salaries. Feel free to check it out if you want to support us :) ).
