A simple, beautiful, and powerful email client for Mac


Polymail is a simple, beautiful, and powerful email client for Mac and iOS. With real-time read-receipts, personalized campaigns, follow-up reminders, contact profiles, and even Salesforce integrations all wrapped in a beautiful UI, Polymail makes your morning email grind effortless.

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.


Shortcuts, beautiful design, and most importantly - read receipts!


Occasionally buggy.

I lot of these clients are missing x-callback-url for integrating with Siri Shortcuts, etc 😞

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.


Has "Read Later" scheduling, and a very clean design.


Focusing less on consumers and more on sales productivity. Can be buggy at times.

Polymail on Mac is pure gold with read receipts and archiver. Fast and easy to use for multiaccount users.


Fast multiaccount support and read receipts.


Pricing could be better. Not affordable email management for budding entrepreneurs and freelancers in growing markets.


The organizational and convenience tools make email less distracting and much more productive. It's a solid app.


Love the convenience features (e.g. read later scheduling, read receipts)


No cons thus far.


Way too expensive for what ti does. I was hyped when I first found this but Astro is Waaaay better.


Multiple email account intergration - including iCloud.


BUGS. Sync is very poor. Tried may different options, but the sync is really bad. Mail refresh is delayed compared to Apple Mail and Astro.

• Wish the side bar could be hidden with a button or auto hide option

• Wish they didn't limit the amount of acounts you can have

• Wish you could customize the theme colors like in mailspring / nylas

• Wish they grouped the messages by sender like texting like MailTime

and unibox

• Wish they had PGP -- I think they're working on it.

• Wish my co-founder and I could log into the same shared email like help@domain.com or invoices@domain.com but if we both use polymail we can't loginto the same email.


The ios app is nice, love it. The mac app is alright, nice ui and ux.


• Mac app has gotten a little buggy sometimes doesnt load long emails.

• Lowered the amount of email accounts to 10 for pro accounts? Why?

Opened it up to try it out and immediately gave up on it as it is not optimized for firefox and I found I was unable to opperate some key functions.


Seems like a useful tool


Not optimized for firefox and I can't get rid of the signature. Plus paying for soemthing like this is always kind of a weird experinece.

Overall, I love Polymail, and have switched to them after dropbox ended their mailbox service. Since then its been great and usually would have no complaints. However, some things that frustrate me as a customer that I wish were fixed are 1.) frequent bugs and glitches 2.) documents consistently fail to attach to an email. Recently, I have seen Polymail has been stepping up on the bugs and glitches with frequent updates being available. I am happy about this b/c I haven't experienced much problems for about a month now. Unfortunately, I CONSISTENTLY have problems with attaching documents of normal size to an email. When I hit send I get an error message "Still Attaching document try again". This goes on for hours and sometimes days which doesn't help my productivity. This has been a frequent occurrence since I switched over to Polymail. I have contacted Polymail multiple times, try reinstalling and everything and still have issues. They say everything works fine for them so I don't know what the problem is. Then one day it start working again only to go back to not working again a week or two later.

I love the product, but Id wish it worked a bit better for me.


Beautiful designed, user friendly


frequent bugs, documents always fail to attach

Great overall product, but I can't use it.

One flaw IMHO, making it unusable in any multiple inboxes setup, is that your IMAP folders from separate accounts are grouped into "Lists".

Say you have "Clients"->"2018" as a folder on 2 separate email accounts, well you have no indicator to know which item is which on the list of "Lists".

This means three things:

1) you can sort an email in a list that doesn't belong to that account (great for you as long as you're *only* using Polymail)

2) you rely on randomness to figure out which list is from a specific account should they have the same name (doesn't feel like a finished product in that case)

3) you have to use other means to properly sort your emails (webmail, any client with standard IMAP support, etc)

Now this wouldn't be a huge problem to me if a solution was in the works but, quoting @Polymail:

"That's actually not a bug - lists in Polymail are not attached to a specific email address and can be used by all of them. If you'd like more details, please shoot an email to team@polymail.io."

Unusable in my specific situation then.


Lots of nifty stuff all nicely detailed on PH or their website


Lists (aka their version of folders)

Exactly the same conclusions : very good features but unusable with more than one account (so why the name "Poly"mail ??). Issue with the same labels in two accounts but, worst than that, if you've got one label in an account and want to move an email from an account to the label of the other account, it doesn't move the email, it creates a new folder with the label name in the first account !?! Very disappointed because except this bad labels and accounts management, it would be an email client killer.

Brandon and the Polymail Team are always looking for the next features and providing the best support and service on the existing features... It's just great

I've used all of the competition services and trialled more and more but always come back to Polymail


Simple UI

Feature Rich

Actively Developed


Amazing Support


Cost for Some

I want a better alternative, please! Notion was the best but they shut down 😭


It’s got read receipts, reminder to follow-up. Decent interface.


Awful support. They’ll respond but no feedback is taken into account. I’m a paid user.

Still my default email client!
