    I asked a similar question a week back, only to realize that Polymail was already installed on Mac long back. Polymail offers read-receipts even without Polymail Pro subscription.

    I love Polymail - great design and functionalities. However, there are some caveats: poor efficiency on Mac (~80% cpu usage while idle) and the lack of an android app.

      Polymail picked up where Mailbox left us hanging. Implementing all the best features like "Read Later" scheduling and swipe actions — all housed in a clean design.

      Lately, I've noticed that Polymail is focusing more on biz dev and sales productivity with Polymail Pro. Understandable, with Sparrow and Mailbox being sold off and shut down. It's clear that email clients need to become profitable to survive. Unfortunately, I'm often pressured into features that I would never use via prompts and popups.

      I have used Polymail for a couple of years now. I still notice a few small bugs around rendering emails, and the Read Later queue can break down if you have several threads saved. Still hoping these issues will be fixed soon. 🙏

      Overall the app still functions great and is my daily email client.

      I recently gave Polymail another try and it's indispensable now. Fast mailbox switching and read receipts are the killer features for me.

      Love Polymail for the Mac, but the iOS app doesn't do it for me. When I'm on my phone, Inbox is my go-to.

    I've been using Newton for a about 2 months now, and love all the features they have in addition to tracking. Great design, has features such as tracking, snoozing, send later, as well as integrations with other tools (Trello, Wunderlist, Pocket, Evernote, Asana, Todoist etc.)

    Astro

    AI meets email for Mac, iOS and Android

    Tried Polymail, Newton, Spark, Airmail and some others. When Astro came along, I stuck with it. They still don’t support IMAP and may lack some other fancy features, but the current featureset (priority box, snoozing, tracking, follow up reminders, inline answering etc) is well executed and reliable.

    I've used tons of tons of email clients over the years and Astro quickly became my preferred choice. It's smart, efficient, well developed and the team behind it are super active and responsive to feedback.

    Been using this after my Polymail trial expired. Love the simplicity and simple AI features (You haven't been opening emails from , should I auto-archive and mark future messages as read.?) Best alternative if you are looking for Mail Tracking, Scheduling and some intelligence, the Priority inbox is A+ too

      I've been a delighted user of Astro almost since launch. And now they have sold to Slack - and are immediately shutting down.

      Can anyone recommend a good email/calendar client?

      My mail client has to handle my personal as well as business mail. My life isn't neatly divided into work and non-work. All my personal mail is through my mac address. Not supporting that makes it worthless to me.

    Spark for Mac

    Beautiful and intelligent email app

    It's the fastest, most stable email client for someone like me (product hunter with about a hundred tousand unread messages). It also doesn't eat storage on my mac. And unlike many there, it's free.

      I've been using Spark since the very beginning. I was an original waitlist-starting user of Mailbox, and was excited to find spark almost immediately after Mailbox went extinct. This is the best email experience on every platform, and has a variety of productivity features that make it my go-to.

    • Ever since Mailbox became a graveyard app, I have been looking for a worthy replacement – and Spark is as close as it gets! The UI is clean, combining dark and light colors which helps with using the app; the side menu being dark while the rest of the UI has a white background makes you focus on the important stuff (the mail list and the mail in focus)!

    Mixmax also has a desktop app – weak spot is mobile, but supposedly in the works. Very much a desktop tool at the moment, but our team uses and loves it.

    I use Mixmax at a long time and recommended. The only deficiency I feel is a mobile application (or web app).

    Vocus.io

    Take your Gmail game to the next level

    Allan Caeg
    Allan CaegFounder, NorthStories.io · Written
    While this is a Chrome plugin, it's worth mentioning Vocus.io (like how folks upvoted Mixmax). It tracks email opens and clicks accurately and knows who among multiple receivers opened the email. As for native mac apps, I still find myself using Mail.app for browsing through lots of emails... but I do use Vocus.io on Chrome for sending business-related emails

    Missive

    Collaborate right in your inbox

    Philippe Lehoux made this product
    In Missive you can track reads and share the resulting data with your teammates.
    CommentsShare
    Missive as fantastic, but it is very expensive if using just as an email client since you'd need to pay $12/mo to get unlimited history, the middle plan $8/mo only downloads last 6 months of email history and free only 15 days. It is primarily a team communication app, and a very good one at that. But it is not priced fairly for those just seeking to use email

      Michael J. KovisI built a Death Star with my mind.

      I'm shocked this product doesn't have more reviews. Have to offset the one negative review with a positive.

      I've been using Mailtrack for a year now. Prior to that I tested many different online tools to track email from Gmail and none worked well enough for. HubSpot's SideKick worked wonderfully, but then became more complex as they integrated it into their CRM.

      For me, I want simplicity. I want to know when my emails were read. That way it saves me the guess work of the email being delivered and read.

      I highly recommend using Mailtrack and purchasing the Pro version! It's worth the minimal cost.

    May not be exactly what you're looking for, but this sits on top of Gmail inside Chrome. I love it. Super customizable. Great for outreach.
