What is the best alternative to iOS Mail?

Since iOS 10 Mail really went down hill for me, I did switch to Outlook for iOS, but that seems to have gone slow and isn't perfect either. What is everyone using reliably? Work email is Microsoft Exchange...

    Such a powerful mail app. It has in-app workflow creation they call 'Custom Actions' and you can even link it up to the app Workflow.

    Great email client with open tracking and, best of all, one click newsletter unsubscription.

      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.

      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.
