      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)!

    If you're on a Mac, there are a lot of beautiful email clients around but Polymail is king. ✌️

    I've tried countless email clients for Mac, and Polymail is where I've finally found home a month or two ago. I even finally signed up for 'Pro' a few days ago so I can have the extra read-receipt notifications. Highly recommend it.

      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 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.

    Thunderbird is the default when you need an email client that's light on the pocket. It's fully featured and free.

    Airmail 3 is fast, reliable, and super easy to use. I feel like I blast through emails like there's no tomorrow with this client.

    • I've been actively searching for an email client that gave me a universal inbox for all my accounts. As a consultant, I regularly have 3+ client email addresses in addition to my main 3-- work, personal, business campaign funnel. I love the sleek design and ability to reach inbox zero. I already have a good email system, so those who dont actively use folders may not be as wowed as I was -- and still am. Looking forward to continued updates, bug fixes and app integrations.

    • I've been happily using Astro till yesterday since they announced they sold the company to Slack and were going to shut down all service by October. I've previously used other clients such as Nylas or Polimail but wasn't convinced about paying a monthly fee for an email client service. I'm happy to pay a one off fee for such a product so Canary has resonated well with me. It seems to work like a charm and offers every possible feature a email client can have.

    For me personally, the best email client is Hiri. I came across it some time ago, took the 14 day free trial and I found it very useful, so I’m still using it. It makes my job much easier now that I cam organize my emails in few clicks.
