      We realize this is not the same thing, however we have decided not to provide access to our mail servers, so pop, smtp, and/or imap access will not be provided as this time.

      Our apologies,

          We are excited to announce that our Android App has been updated, it’s pretty cool! Download the latest version to check it out!

          Done! A link to our Android app is available on kidsemail.org.

        • Allow email in other language or alphabet

          Some families are bilingual, and for instance if the father only communicates in a language that requires cyrillic letters, he is unable to communicate with his child.

              • move buttons to the top of Mail Queue Alert email.

                Many times I am familiar with the person or company emailing my child and can approve them quicker if the buttons are at the top. Maybe if you have the approve/approve and add to contacts/deny buttons at top AND bottom it would make it faster for either scenario. Thanks

                • Alter existing app to allow parents to view and manage all emails for every child with an account at a glance.

                  I like the app, but I'd live it to be more user friendly so that I, the parent, can manage my kids' accounts at a glance from my smartphone. I.e delete inappropriate messages.

                  • Create a dedicated iPad app

                    The iPhone app does work on the iPad, but it is "clunky". A dedicated app would make the iPad kidsemail experience much better.

                    • Show short-cut names for email addresses in the address book

                      On the ipad app, the address book that comes up when you are addressing an email only shows email addresses, not the person's actual name. Very confusing for the little ones.

                            We just released a brand new app for Kindle, we’d love for you to check it out***
                            We now have an Android app that will also work on the Kindle Fire! You can install that from the Kindle app store. Search for KMail or Kids Email.

                            Thanks!

                            When my child receives an email, I get a copy of that email, and the subject line of that copy just says, "Incoming email for (account name)". I would like the name and or address of the sender to be put in the Subject line, so that I can quickly see who sent the email.

                            • filter sent emails in the iOS app

                              In the iOS app I can type in any email address and send an email. It seems like the whole point of this service is to prevent kids from sending or receiving emails from someone not on their whitelist.

                              The iOS app should enforce this whitelist for sending emails.

                              • bigger buttons on app

                                the app on the kindle is hard for kids to use(age 7 & 9). needs bigger buttons and a yes or no option before they send an email. Also the contact list is twitchy.
                                Thank you

                                • Improve the look and functionality of the email interface

                                  I hope you'll consider putting similar time and energy into the email interface to what you've put into your promotional site and login pages. Your initial sell inspires confidence and an expectation of quality, but the actual product itself is unimpressive. Being a graphic and web/UI designer, I might be more sensitive these things than most, but it seems like the priorities were backwards on this one. Hopefully this is welcome critique, and maybe you've even thought of all this already and are hard at work on Kids Email 2.0 Beta!

                                  I don't plan on cancelling my trial, the program…

                                  • Make The iOS app iOS 7 compatible.

                                    I suggest you make the iOS app iOS 7 compatible so it will look better and not look old. Also with the new iOS 7 it doesn't work very well.

                                      When replying to an email via the iPhone app, move the incoming text down a few lines and set the cursor to the beginning of the text box, so the child can begin responding without adjusting the cursor position.

                                        The mail reading window is quite small on an ipad mini. If somebody sends photos in the body of an email you can only see a very small part of the image. There appears to be plenty of space to stretch the window for better viewing, even to increase the size of the text.

                                        • To be able to transfer a contact from the siblings to the general contact list, if I make a mistake. Or delete it from there.

                                          Right now, if you add a contact in the sibling list, it cannot be delete. Therefore, if I make a mistake, I cannot correct it. In the enter/edit window, it would be nice to chose the group right there as we enter the contact.

                                            Right now if you login to the parent account and click on Manage Contacts on the left side of the page it will pull up all the contacts. You can edit or delete all contacts there, let me know if that helps.
