More security for Yahoo! email accounts using Boxbe

Tuesday, October 2nd, 2012


One thing we love to do is announce security upgrades for our users…and well, here we are, with yet another secure way to help you safely communicate with the people you love.  We are happy to announce that Yahoo! mail users are now even more secured using Boxbe with OAuth.

This means that when using the Boxbe service to help you prioritize the people you want to hear from, your email’s personal access information is not given out.  At all.  Boxbe can only access your Inbox to help prioritize emails when you have given your consent, while your email password stays secure and is never shared.

When registering a new Yahoo account with Boxbe, or adding a Yahoo! email address to your existing Boxbe account, you will now see a page asking for your permission to allow the Boxbe service  access to your email.  This allows Boxbe to connect (again, without a password being shared) with information needed to allow our service to work with your email.



Boxbe is dedicated to providing users with the most up-to-date security in our service.  We understand that with today’s internet activities, having peace-of-mind over personal information is a necessity.  We are proudly remaining vigilant over your security.

Boxbe – Saying ‘good-bye’ to the Public Email Address

Friday, July 6th, 2012

As new features are implemented, certain offerings need to be sunsetted. The PFA/Public Email Address is one of those offerings we are now letting go.

If you use an address (like, please be aware that this service will be discontinued, within the coming few months, and will no longer be offered.

Our members are able to continue to use their email screening preferences and personalized guest lists to make sure they are receiving the mail they want, while sorting out unknown and unwanted messages.

Boxbe now fully integrates with Yahoo! Mail (and others like sbcglobal, etc.), Gmail, AOL Mail and Google Apps. We highly recommend using one of these services in order to continue leveraging the power of Boxbe service’s policy screening with your email.  Simply click here to register your Yahoo, AOL, or Gmail account with us.

Just like with the latest addition to our service Automatic Cleanup, we plan on continuously improving our integrated services and furthering our goal of helping to manage inboxes the way you want them to be.

We are notifying our members early enough to give you time to re-route your email to another address, if you are currently using the “” address ID to send to your contacts.

Thank you for your continued use and support of Boxbe!

Site update – Email addresses

Monday, March 17th, 2008

We’ve got a bunch of new features in the pipeline, but I almost forgot to mention some refinements we’ve made to the site recently.

Email Addresses page

We’ve made it a lot easier to update email addresses that you are using with Boxbe. By going to your Email Addresses page, you can maintain, enable, disable or add new email addresses to be protected by Boxbe.

To protect a new email address, you can either add it at the top of the Email Addresses page


or from your Dashboard page.


Once you type the email address in, you’ll be guided through the process to protect that email address using Boxbe.

We hope this makes it easier to add email addresses to your Boxbe account. If you have any problems or difficulties with this or any other feature, send email to
