It’s been more than a year since Mailbox was purchased by Dropbox, but thankfully the app hasn’t been left to languish. After an update to version 2.0 in April of this year (with an update to fix issues with that one soon after), the app has been updated again, with even more features for users.

With the newest update, which brings Mailbox for iOS up to version 2.1, users can now have a few more options for email management at their fingertips. You can now mark emails as spam if you want, or even mark them as unread if you prefer, through a Menu option that’s now part of individual messages, or within threaded conversations (or multiple emails from the same sender). You can also print emails through the same option.

Mailbox has also included support for Passbook. That means if you get an email with a digital ticket, or other attachment supported by the feature, you can add it directly into the app.

It will also now permanently delete messages that have been swiped to the trash. Here’s the full change log for version 2.1:

  • Now translated into 19 languages, including Chinese (both Simplified and Traditional), Danish, Dutch, French, German, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Malay, Polish, Brazilian Portuguese, Russian, Spanish (both European and Latin American), Swedish, Thai and English
  • View spam and mark messages as spam
  • Passbook support
  • Permanent delete from trash and spam
  • Bug fixes and performance improvements
  • The updated app is available now in the App Store, and you can find a link to it down below. The update should be rolling out to users now.
