The Oxford Mail was founded in 1928 as a successor to Jackson's Oxford Journal.

From 1961 until 1979 its editor was Mark Barrington-Ward.[2] At that time it was owned by the Westminster Press, and was an evening newspaper.[2]

The Oxford Mail is now published in the morning. In the second half of 2008 its circulation fell to 23,402,[3] by 2013 it had fallen to 16,569, a year-on-year decline of 5.6%[4] By the second half of 2014, its circulation had fallen to 12,103.[5]

In the period July to December 2015, the paper's circulation fell again, to 11,173.[6] In January to June 2016, a further decline to 10,777 was recorded, an 8.4% fall in year-on-year.[7]
