At least 75 percent of Gmail users access their accounts on a mobile device, and now is a good time for Google to launch Inbox. The service, which is available on Google Play or from the Apple Store, allows users to better organize their mobile Gmail inboxes. Inbox is available to anyone interested in downloading it and giving a shot, which features "Highlights" so information is more easily viewable in the email feed.

Outlook.com has at least 400 million active accounts, while Yahoo Mail has 225 million monthly active users - with many users owning multiple email addresses, sometimes spread across different email providers.
