As an increasing number of companies are realizing the benefits of using shared inbox software to manage their email communication, the market for these tools has become increasingly crowded. With so many options to choose from, it can be overwhelming to figure out which shared inbox software is the best fit for your business.

To help you make an informed decision, we've compiled a list of the 3 best shared inbox softwares in 2023, including pros and cons for each tool.

🏆 Gmelius


Gmelius is the leading email collaboration software for Google Workspace and Gmail users. As an official Google Partner, Gmelius offers the most seamlessly integrated shared inbox for teams working in Gmail.

Besides a user-friendly interface, Gmelius is also the only shared inbox solution in the market offering a genuine 360 email collaboration solution - Gmelians (aka Gmelius users) can share inboxes, Google Groups, Gmail labels, email drafts, and even single email conversations. Some of the key other benefits of using Gmelius include its powerful automation suite, its in-app reporting capabilities, support for Enterprise requirements (custom roles, Google Workspace Admin sync) and 2-way integrations with popular productivity apps like Trello, Zapier and Slack. One of the standout features of Gmelius is its ability to turn emails into tasks, allowing teams to assign and track their work more effectively.

Gmelius represents the best choice for any Google Workspace company looking to streamline its operations and customer service.
