For those seeking how to get rid of Boxbe, just follow the recommended link above and you’ll see pretty much what appears in the screenshot to the left. Enter your e-mail and password and then click on the “Close My Account" link.
Of course Boxbe will warn you a few times that your Boxbe folder will no longer receive e-mails for you to screen, allow or disallow. It also warns all your new “Boxbe" friends - stolen from your contact list - will be lost as “authorized" forever if you uninstall Boxbe.
Fear not folks - once I agreed that I would lose the ability to screen received e-mails all safely kept in my Boxbe folder, and deleted my account, what happened is really quite enjoyable - actually you are free from an e-mail screening tool you didn’t want in the first place.
The friends in your Gmail contact list stay the same, and what’s even better - all those annoying e-mails from Boxbe to your friends instantly stop - this is awesome, especially if you want to keep your friends because they’re probably also annoyed at Boxbe’s persistence.
Lastly go to your Gmail account and you’ll see the Boxbe “Inbox" list is still there (screenshot above). Simply move any e-mails you want to save and then delete the Boxbe label by right clicking on the folder and click on Remove Label (screenshot below).
If you’re hiding from the IRS (they'll still find you) or perhaps an ex-spouse, Boxbe can be a useful tool as you are prompted to accept or deny e-mails from certain recipients. For me, however, Boxbe isn’t worth the aggravation - especially the unwanted e-mails it sends to everyone on your contact list promising them freedom of unwanted e-mails if they sign up. Actually I think I lost a few friends using Boxbe, I’m trying to get them back now.
Better think twice before accepting to join Boxbe than uninstalling and removing Boxbe in Gmail after you have annoyed many of your contacts.
