    Spark for Mac

    Beautiful and intelligent email app

    Ciocanel RazvanCo-Founder of EpicCoders · Written
    I use this because it has great apps on mobile and mac and also the accounts sync between the apps so you don't have to do it twice. It also sorts emails similar to what gmail does and i find that really cool. You also can schedule emails for later read.

    Spark has been great for me on iOS. I'll be honest, I use Airmail on desktop but on mobile Spark's performance and simplicity has kept me a user. I've never experienced any problems with snoozing, conversations etc. Plus, unlike Google Inbox, it supports pretty much any email account. I utilize Zoho for personal email so that is huge. Good luck!

    Found Spark after Polymail switched over to a less than enticing paid subscription model. Been super happy with Spark though! Its reliable, quick, and simple. It doesn't have any big heavy lifting features, but for free I don't think there's anything better right now. Spark if you're reading this! Find a way to integrate people's calendars into your App. I bet it would explode in popularity ;)

    Airmail 3

    A simple, beautiful email client for Mac and iOS

    Jeff DashleyWeb Designer/Developer · Written
    Just spent a couple of weeks testing Newton, Polymail, and Spark after a couple of years with Airmail. Sometimes you just want to test the waters. Airmail still remains the best for me and my routines. The others offer great features and nice looks, but I wasn't able to find a reason to switch in the end.

    Quick and responsive, Airmail is a well-designed email client for Mac. Comes out of the box with loads of integrations to other services you might use (Trello, OmniFocus, Google Drive and more). Supports GTD-type tagging of emails as to-do tasks too!

    I use Airmail to manage a variety of emails and it's spot on, especially for the power user. If you don't need exchange support, Polymail is also killer.

    Been using Polymail. Beautiful UI, great features with the same lightweight, seamless interface that you should expect from a native email client. Email tracking, snooze, attachment tracking, contact profiles, send later, etc.
    Arun5Happiness Engineer, Automattic · Written
    Polymail is easily the best yet. At least, it works magic for me. With features like email tracking, contacts, schedules and many more, Polymail for Mac fits my needs.

    Great UI that keeps things clean and polished. Beautifully designed UX that lets you focus on your desired emails and gets rid of the clutter. It provides quick actions to really make managing your email a breeze. I really enjoy it, if you can't tell.

    Great product with great features (send later, read receipt, reminders, undo...), I love it!

    I don't need a separate email client in general because Fastmail's web UI is amazing but use Newton mail for read receipts and scheduled emails

    AI meets email for Mac, iOS and Android

    Jeff BrownJeffery Brown, Network Engineer · Written
    I love Astro. The features are intuitive to learn and the UI is really clean. It helps me keep the emails I need to worry about in focus and the emails that I don't out of focus. The reply tracking feature keeps me from forgetting to follow up on emails and the open tracking feature lets me know if someone has actually opened my email or not.
    Enrique BarragánSoftware Developer @ Disruptive Angels · Written
    I like the AI in this one, helps me declutter my inbox by unsubscribing to old newsletters that I don't read anymore, reminds me to send emails and lets me know when an important message arrives.
    Love the snooze feature, the reply tracking feature... and more over... the email open tracking feature... which helps me to say "Of course, you know my point of view because you open the email at (time). And the team behind is very reactive.

    Inbox by Google

    Next generation inbox

    BenBenSites · Written
    Inbox is great - it's easy to sort out what matters from promotional junk mail while still making everything easily accessible. It brings all of the great features from GMail, along with extra features (delivery tracking, reminders, snoozing, special ways to see your subscriptions, etc).

    Excellent for those working with a large number of email accounts.
    Handles multiple email accounts very well, and gives great performance at the same time !

    Tried probably 5-8 different mail apps and this is the best. Works great for multiple accounts and the UI is very nice.

    Easy and fast access to web applications

    That is a fantastic program. I started working much faster. Everything you need at your fingertips. Thanks!)
    I tried a variety of alternatives. But I could not find something better. This application helps with cosmic speed to work with services like Trello and Hubspot.

    The best way to use [all your] Gmail [accounts] on your mac

    Andrew CrookstonDeveloper and Entrepenur · Written
    I've tried several of the others mentioned above (like Nylas and Spark) but I keep coming back to Mailplane because it's so easy to use. It's essentially a wrapper around the google interface + some goodies like unread counts in dock / menu bar + native bindings. There's another similar app out there called Kiwi for Gmail, does about the same, I don't know what differs them.
    It's basically just but as a standalone app.

    It's reliable, supports multiple accounts from any provider, and comes with rich tooling on information protection, calendaring and tasks. Updates frequently and supports integration with Office365. Been using it as the only mail client on my Mac and couldn't be happier.

    I'm a Postbox user for years and this has been the best desktop client I've used thus far. You can create smart mailboxes, customized signatures based off of provided templates, open inboxes in tabs, and install plugins that allow you to extend Postbox's functionality, like attaching Dropbox or Box files to your messages.
  17. Yuno 🎉Developer, Yuno Studio · Written
    As a heavy user of Google Inbox, I prefer using a standalone inbox client instead of a browser tab for my emails. Wavebox does a really great job for that. Plus Wavebox also allows you to include Google Drive, Outlook or any other web apps you use a lot right into the Wavebox app.

    I love Fluid. I am able to make apps out of my various email provider accounts. It's really handy. The only downside is that Im having trouble incorporating LastPass to function within the app, so sometimes I have to add the login/pass manually. But its GREAT for websites you visit on the reg.

    I prefer Mailplane which I also posted but this is a good alternative / similar to Mailplane.
