I forward my 3 google email addresses to it (1 gmail, 2 work related) and read them using hey.com.
And, I set it up so that I can reply from hey using those addresses.
It’s decluttered my email, and now that I’ve gotten the hang of their workflows it feels clever and delightful to use.
one of the benefits I’d hey is that it has a nice looking, low friction blogging + newsletter platform built in and that uses the hey.com email address. I’ll probably end up having that - Clarke.email@example.com - as another public facing email address, but I’ve not decided yet.
Hope this helps someone. It’s worth playing around with and it’s a fair price, for my usage.
Hey is really neat, and I really like their filtering setup. By following the instructions in the link below I was able to set up a similar workflow in my fastmail.com account which is a much less expensive email service provider.
Hey is a really wonderful service in a lot of ways—I was an extremely early adopter and still give out my Hey address as a personal email address because it’s so short and memorable.
However, I eventually came to the conclusion that for my particular needs, Hey was actually adding friction and stress to my email workflow rather than reducing it. I don’t mention this to discourage anyone, I just think it’s important to be aware of your needs and think about whether Hey’s features would help or hinder your efforts to solve email problems. I didn’t do a good enough job of that and ended up frustrated by the experience after a while.
