Huge improvement to this app with SpamSieve, Dropbox, and Evernote integration. Macworld gave it only 3 stars, I think that is really unfair. Airmail has come a long way since it started, and the developer has been very responsive to requests. It more...

I must applaud the author(s) for responding to the vatious critiques and requests on the various forums. I have yet to try version 1.4 but I will be particularly interested in signatures and mail imports. Well done to the team.

Does this company have a real email support address?

Clicking on "Submit a Support Request" sends me to their Twitter account. Their support structure gives me the impression that they intend to avoid any one-on-one customer support in favor of Knowledge Base, User Forums, and Twitter.

I hope I am wrong and the developer does have an email address to which I can send a question and expect to receive a reply from a real person.

To be fair, the app is only $2, so you get what you pay for in terms of support.

It is completely fair and reasonable that a developer maintain an email address for client support contacts. Especially for an email program! $1.99 is sufficient to justify responsive developer interaction. Creation of a good user manual and web based support is key to off loading the support burden, but not enough to qualify as good customer service and support.

The developer's site lists this email support address: contact@airmailapp.com

On https://airmail.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/requests/new, the developer states "We will not respond to any email but we will read all. You can contact us - help [at] airmailapp com."

And, to me it is a confirmation that they are not willing to offer support via email. Am I correctly reading what the developer wrote?

@Akjim I agree the developer should offer support, but not for only $1.99. They should charge a premium price. That's like saying I'll design a logo for $1.99 and then the client starts sending revision after revision. It's $2, get over it.

Is there an easy one-step way to import all folders of Mail.app's POP account to Airmail's POP account (NOT a Local Account)?

I have dozens of nested folders in Mail's POP account. I am aware that I can import them into Airmail's Local Account.

But, I want to import these folders into Airmail's POP account without recreating every single folder.

I want to really like Airmail. However, unless I can accomplish what I pointed out, there is no way I can move to Airmail.

Please advise!!

I discovered Airmail out of frustration with Apple Mail Flags not renaming permanently. I bought it willingly and have played with it a lot over the last two days. I dont like the "Create Local Account" to import mail folders from other mail clients as I cant see a way to convert it into a "proper" account one the import is complete. Also I don't like having to create new signatures for each account (I have 8 and 9 signatures) Surely a drag and drop like Apple mail has would be easy to achieve. Get past those two problems and I'll migrate like a shot. Oh! Just one more thing - to make Airmail the default email client so that one can share a file in Airmail when control clicking on that file

Foulger - I should have read your comment before I posted mine above because we are pointing out the same frustration (plus, you make a good point on signatures as well). I contacted the developer on "Create Local Account" and I just received the following reply:

"We have a transfer option but not bulk action still."

Too bad that this hurdle hasn't been overcome as of now.

There's a lot to like about this app. Geez, just getting me out of the browser for checking Gmail makes me sigh with relief.

The UI can be a bit eccentric, the pref defaults need lots of tweaking without much guidance, customer service is super high-strung, and more often than I'd like, the app gets stuck trying to load my mail (when mail via browser and other apps loads fine).

But it's only two bucks, it's very actively developed, and I'm pushing it up an extra star or so to compensate for the dude below who thinks the app's "great" but rated it one star because of an incredibly minor bug and a frustrating encounter with support.

Also: search is frustratingly slow (though, as an early gmail adopter, I likely have more mail in my account to search through than most people).

A great app can be ruined by a bug, which for me, in this case, it is, as I had to stop using it due to the bug...

1 star isn't out of the question if I paid for something I cannot use.

The app would be great, but upon reporting a bug I was told flat out that the bug could not exist because I'm the only person ever to have reported it.

If you use a Gmail account (and the Gmail spam folder mapped under mappings), please try the following (and report it as a bug if it does the same thing to you):

1. Make sure the option to search the spam box is disabled.
2. Do a search for a generic term such as "and" or "the" (any term will work, but the more generic the more likely a match).
3. Look for an email in the search results that has no folders tied to it (the email in question will have been a spam message).
4. Click on it and try to delete it.

If you get the same "ghost" emails I am, please report the problem.
I reproduced this on 2 different macs using 2 different gmail accounts.

The person providing support refused to believe there was any possibility this was a real bug. That same individual also told me than when setting up a new Gmail account, the spam folder would NOT auto map by default, and refused to acknowledge otherwise. So I posted this:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w8ibr0sIlno

In his las response he indicated he would forward the bug on to his developer and would not refund my $2 if they couldn't reproduce it.

I told them to keep the $2...

Agreed that support can be, er, high-strung.

But you're describing an incredibly minor-sounding bug, and rating what you describe as a "great" app down to one star as a result, which makes no sense. Skewing the data here isn't the proper way to vent your road rage. Next time, just leave a comment or something.

That isn't an entirely accurate easement...

A great app can get 1 star if it is unusable, which it is in this case, to me...

I can't search my emails reliably, so I am now using a different app...

I haven't come across that bug in particular, as I only use my Gmail account very little, most is done through my iCloud account. However, the search function is very crude, I haven't found a way to search a single mailbox, it simply searches everything in the selected account.
I also find the UI a bit hard to work with, the dark background with less than white fonts is not ideal (yes, I did mention it to them).
FWIW, I haven't yet found a perfect mail client, none of them work flawlessly, or offer all the features I need. In the end, I've been sticking with Mail.app, as that seems to be the least problematic.

Not ready from prime time, a beta disguised as a final product. My emails disappeared the second day.

If you miss Sparrow, give it a shot.
I sometimes had doubts about the search engine, but every time I double checked on Gmail, it turns out that Airmail was right.
Lightweight and fast.
And for the price... I highly recommend.

If you'd like a demo, try the beta here :

But be prepared : updates are quite frequent.
