  • Switch between accounts instantly. No need to sign-out and sign-in.
  • Google Calendar is a perfect match for Gmail. Mailplane combines them in one app. No separate calendar set-up required and accepting an invitation intuitively switches to the correct calendar tab.
  • Mailplane is a native OS X application and integrates naturally into OS X. Apple Mail like keyboard shortcuts, acting as default Mail Client, Mail PDF from Print Dialog, OS X Services, and much more.
  • Enable great Gmail plugins on an account basis with a single click.
  • Hide ads or apply a custom stylesheet.
  • Resize images, compress directories or capture your screen and attach it to your message. No need to start another app.
  • Don't download attachments twice. Preview them with QuickLook.
  • Mailplane's notifier tells you everything about unread messages. It integrates with OS X notification center and the 'Do Not Disturb' mode allows you to stay focused.

  • Mailplane has also an AppleScript interface to automate some of your daily workflows.

What's new in Mailplane

Version 4.3.0:
  • macOS Big Sur: Mailplane 4.3 supports macOS Big Sur. Unfortunately upcoming Apple Silicon Macs aren't yet supported but we're working on it.
  • Save Clip: Clipboard: 'Save Clip' has a new Clipboard option. It allows you to copy the current message as Markdown to the clipboard.
  • Notifier & Signed Out Accounts: The indicator in the menu bar shows if an account has been signed out in the background.
  • Discrete GPU: Go to 'Preferences > Style' and uncheck the 'Enable GPU rendering' option. It helps to save battery life by using the integrated instead of the discrete GPU.
  • Re-open last visited location on startup: Go to 'Preferences > Accounts > Advanced' and uncheck 'Re-open last visited Gmail location on startup' if you want to open the inbox instead of the last visited location on startup.
Fixes and Improvements:
  • Canceling 'Insert Screenshot' with ESC doesn't lead to a crash anymore.
  • Fixed a few 'Save Clip' issues.
  • "View entire message" stays dark as well if dark setting is toggled.
  • Fixed an edge case where the notifier count didn't match the one in the tab.

I have used Mailplane for over 5 years. But the last year the app crashes and loses function, I have moved back to working in my browser.

$30 for what is essentially a Gmail client!? Could someone please help me to understand why this application is so expensive?

Best Gmail-specific email app I have ever encountered (with the possible exception of Newton, which sports a great GUI but is overpriced and now I understand discontinued).

Use this app everyday and have nothing but praise. If you use Gmail, it's worth having a look.

The Gmail web interface is not for everyone, but for those who appreciate it, I recommend giving Mailplane a try. I've been using it for many years and have come to rely heavily on the many feature benefits Mailplane offers over the actual Gmail web interface. Even though Mailplane is basically the Safari webkit integrated into the app itself, it adds things like menu bar notification of new email, add-ons, integration into the OS, ad removal in the Gmail right column, and more than anything, SUPERB customer support. Of all the apps I've ever requested support on in my life, this developer and his team are one of the best I've ever experienced. Simply an excellent product backed by solid development and support.

Mailplane has been my default email app for 7 years, always running in the background or foreground on my Macs. I appreciate how it integrates with the Mac experience and Contacts, and depend on it for instant access to multiple Gmail accounts.

Really appreciate the rapid response from the developers and resolution of problems. This last issue on multiple account stability was a real headache for me and they quickly implemented the change to allow a feature that I've always wanted, which was to handle the logins separate from Google's (faulty) mechanism. I look forward to some upcoming changes that seem to be in the works as well!

I had an issue with updating to 10.10.2 and the customer support to fix it was exceptional: it was timely, reliable and most important the problem was fixed. Outstanding product and service. I've been using MP for years and will continue to do so.

One thing so many people miss about this app vs. other 3rd party apps. The Google Chat feature works in the app! You get notifications when someone sends you a message, etc. just as if you were in your web browser. I've not found any other apps that do this
