I know it's not cool to use Windows anymore, but I do and it's really hard to find a decent desktop mail client. Thunderbird shows its age, and Outlook is really the only other option. After having Outlook wipe half my mail during a failed sync the other week, I went on a hunt and found Mailbird... and I'm pretty blown away. It's a MODERN mail client, built for the world we live in today.

The two key features of interest to me are:
- Unified mailbox: The inboxes for my 7 accounts optionally all appear in one place
- Calendar Integration - integrates with Google Calendar or Sunrise (I use Sunrise, so this is rad)

It also has a load of integration for things like Wunderlist, Asana, Dropbox, etc. All apps that I use in running my startup. It also has some gimmicky stuff like the option to tweet or share on facebook when you've reached "Inbox Zero", which is a nice touch. Pretty powerful support system that lets you see submitted product feature requests.

Generally a great product, though at 2.0 it's still growing (Can't move mail between folders on different accounts yet). I will be starting my transition away from Outlook over the Christmas break

Thank you for hunting this Ross! @rossdcurrie
As a fellow Windows user, I can relate to your situation. I've been looking for a replacement to Outlook. Tried Nylas N1 for some time, but didn't quite liked it. Will surely give this a try. :)

@akshaybharwani I knew I couldn't be the only one in the same boat - word must get out!! I literally lost all my PayPal payment notifications for the last year because of outlook not understanding how to create/sync remote folders properly

I think you'll like mailbird - the features it has are very sleek and the ones that are missing I get the impression aren't far behind.

@rossdcurrie I am already using it and loving the design. :)

@rossdcurrie thanks for hunting this. I've been looking for an Outlook replacement, but options are slim

@rossdcurrie I agree it's a great client and behaves more like an app than a clunky piece of old-school software. That is, it's fast. I moved from Thunderbird because of speed issues and Mailbird answered them.

@webbuzzau Yeah I still need a few 'basic' features like mail filters, or being able to move mail from one account to another... Generally a good piece of software with a few features sure to be on there way.

To put it in context - it's fine for me to use, but my dad asked what it was when he saw the default signature and I'm not ready to move him or my mom onto it yet.

@rossdcurrie I agree. More advanced search capabilities are needed but the time it saves you in processing emails is well worth it.
