Spark

A smart, fast and free email client for iPhone

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!

I love it on both iOS and macOS. It works seamlessly, intuitively, and I utilise the "pin" feature to help me tackle emails later in the day. I'm so much more productive now!

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.

Airmail 3

A simple, beautiful email client for Mac and iOS

AJ AdamsProduct Marketing & Design · Written
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.

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!

Newton Mail

Drew DavidsonPresident, Link 3pl · Written
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.

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

Astro

AI meets email for Mac and iPhone

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.

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.

Spark for Mac

Beautiful and intelligent email app

Bret PrinsWeb Developer + Coffee Snob · Written
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 ;)

I still think the web version of gmail is the best. Tried several apps and always gone back to the web app.

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).

Mailplane

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

Andrew CrookstonCo-founder Throwdown Labs · 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 gmail.com but as a standalone app.

Thunderbird by mozilla

Jonathan JamesAlways Reaching. · Edited
Thunderbird has more customization than any other Email client on macOS... If you're having trouble believing me then look @ mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/features/ If you're looking to fully customize your Email experience then use an open-source client. @mozilla

Microsoft Outlook 2016 for Mac

Den DelimarskyProgram Manager, Microsoft · Written
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.

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.
