  • Features 🌻

    Since our launch on Product Hunt at the end of January, James and I have been busy bees adding features and making lots of improvements.

    The most requested feature by far was support for more email providers, and we listened.

    We're super excited to announce that we now support Outlook!!! You can now login with your Outlook email (or Hotmail/Live) and clean out even more spam subscription emails! 🎉

    1 login

    Plus we have added several new features to make LMA even better and easier to use:

    Lightning fast scans

    As we continue to grow we needed to make some performance improvements. Scans now run super fast, and more reliably than before - even for those big inboxes!

    See the worst spammers

    You can now see exactly how many emails you have received from a sender for your scan period, and identify who the "spammiest" senders are. This is James' favourite new feature!

    spam label

    Spam folder scanning

    We already scanned your trash and now we also scan your spam folder so you can really clear out absolutely all of your subscription emails and get an even cleaner inbox!

    spam label


    • Added preference to opt out of marketing emails


    • Negative numbers on the open page showing with two minus signs
    • Some emails from name or email address not matching our expected format

    What's next?

    We're continuing to work on adding support for more providers. You can follow along with our progress on our public roadmap and vote for which one we work on.

    Our pricing is finalised and available on the landing page https://leavemealone.xyz#pricing.

    The prices are tiered depending on how far back in time you want to scan your inbox for subscription emails. Each tier is a one-off payment per scan.
