Q What is Time to Inbox?

- Time to Inbox is the length of time it takes from when an email is sent from a client until it shows up in the user’s inbox and is available to read.

Q Where does the Time to Inbox data come from?

- Time to Inbox is the length of time it takes from when an email is sent from a client until it shows up in the user’s inbox and is available to read. Time to Inbox data is refreshed every 5 minutes. We generate the TTI (Time to Inbox) data internally using an automated system powered primarily by our MailHandler gem, which we recently released under an MIT license. Every five minutes, we send an email with consistent content to each of the five major ISPs (Gmail, Yahoo, Outlook/Hotmail, AOL, and iCloud/Me.com). Then we login to each service to check and see if it has arrived. Once it has arrived, we compare the time that it was sent to the time that we found it in the inbox and record how long it took to arrive. This approach gives us the closest estimation of reality possible for end users and avoids skewing the numbers in our favour. We feel it’s best if our reported times match the true experience of a person checking their email.
