In a nutshell, SquadMail works like "Dropbox for email" and lets you share synchronized gmail labels (or any other IMAP folder) with others. Instead of CCing your entire team on an email, simply assign it a shared label and the email will show up with the correct label in your collaborators' inbox. Should your team change, you can simply add a new person to a label and they'll receive the entire communication history neatly sorted.
Additionally, each label gets its own email address that you can for example use to receive automated notifications from your social networks or newsletters.
Last but not least, SquadMail lets you automatically extract email attachments from a gmail label and save them to a specific folder on your Dropbox (which also makes it possible to email files straight to your Dropbox).

Each label also receives its own email address so you can link it to your social networks to get any feeds automatically. What's more, the app let's you extract attachments from a Gmail label and save them to Dropbox.
As wonderful as the email concept is, it does have a habit of turning into a bit of a mess - especially when there are multiple users needing access to it. Each email needs to be sorted individually and sent on to the relevant parties. SquadMail changes the way this works by making one folder for each topic or project. This means that all team members get access to all the correspondence from that project. Quite simply, SquadMail is a collaboration and email application that lets you share synchronized Gmail labels (or any other IMAP folder, if...
