Where archived emails go

Speaking Email FAQ | Home | All FAQs

Q: I have archived an email by mistake - how can I get it back?

A:

Archived emails can always be retrieved. There are two ways:
1. If you realise just after you archive it, swipe back, tap again and you will see the "archive" button highlighted. Just tap it again to undo. 
2. If it's a bit later, go into your regular mail program, for example Gmail, Outlook, or your webmail. The location of your archived mail is different for gmail that other mail servers. 

Gmail:
Go to Gmail in your browser and go into the folder called "all mail" and you will see everything including archived emails. Or you can search in gmail.
Other:
Archived email will be moved to a folder called "archive". This will either be  a built in folder that already exists or Speaking Email will create it as a personal folder. 


What is Speaking Email?

An app for iPhone and Android that reads your email out loud to you. It intelligently extracts content from emails (minus the signatures, disclaimers and threads). And it lets you action your email - archive, mark-as-read, trash, flag, reply, or forward. It can be completely by voice command, or use the large on-screen buttons or full screen touch gestures.


Who is it for?

People with blindness or visual impairment. People who are busy and run out of time to get through their inbox. People who want to make productive use of time when driving between appointments.
