MailMate for Mac

03 September 2020

Mail client designed exclusively for IMAP.

What is MailMate for Mac

MailMate is an ambitious, powerful email client for OS X. It is designed for and only supports IMAP while still working in full when offline. MailMate has state-of-the-art searching capabilities and correspondingly advanced smart mailboxes. Extensive keyboard control and dynamic signatures ensure a highly efficient workflow when reading and answering emails. Alternative message viewer layouts and a browser-inspired design ensure easy and rapid access to related messages.

Features:
  • Universal mailboxes: One Inbox for all of your IMAP accounts.
  • Extensive keyboard control: Switch mailboxes or move messages using the keyboard only.
  • Advanced smart mailboxes: Make any/all combinations of other (smart) mailboxes and use any/all combinations of matching conditions.
  • Tags: Organize your emails using tags.
  • Link-searching: Search for related messages using search links.
  • Dynamic signatures: Default signature based on the history of sent messages.
  • Notifications: Multiple dock/menu bar counters and Growl notifications.
  • Mailing list support: Mailing list messages are automatically organized in smart mailboxes.
  • Alternative message views: Easily browse email statistics or use thread arcs to navigate in a message thread.
  • SpamSieve integration and full control over image blocking.
  • Support for both S/MIME and OpenPGP.
  • Support for tags using IMAP keywords for synchronization.
  • Support for Spotlight searches.

Though development seems to continue (see bottom of https://updates.mailmate-app.com/archives/), there's not been an official release for one year+. The first one on that page is v1.14 ( build 5820) from 2020-09-03 and seems to work ok, with dark mode too. The other archives, there, contain a single file without an extension (I've tried to add ".app" to it to no avail...), I suppose it's just a repository for the dev himself.

This is the definitive successor as a Mac e-mail client to Qualcomm’s Eudora Pro which I used on the MS Windows OS and with better IMAP support. Reviewers talking about price often focus on optics and not substance. Remember how much Eudora Pro used to cost? I believe $80 circa 1997.

Worth every penny... but... Still waiting, years after its announcement, for version 2.

The more I use MailMate, the more impressed I become. I purchased a copy of MailMate several years ago, but didn't start using it in earnest until recently -- partly because of some interface things that I (initially) disliked. But each of those things has either become very useful now that I understand how it works, or else could be reconfigured to get something I liked. I'm especially happy with MailMate's powerful search syntax and display options. As part of my work, I frequently need to search through a large archive of old emails, and Apple Mail's limited search options often made it difficult and frustrating to find what I was looking for. MailMate makes it much easier.

I'm taking a new trial with this version and yes it's a lot better and fast than Apple Mail, is compatible with Spamsieve, but oh, what a price! Currently, clicking BUY NOW on their website says 60 bucks! :-o (including French VAT) I already thought 50 was pretty expensive when there are free mail apps: probably negligible for a corporate, but way too much for a single user, even if, I admit it, it's faster than any other one I've tried.

Without any doubt the best mail client for MacOS. Security, Filters, Tags, Search, ...all of this is very well implemented. The learning curve is a little steep but it's worth it! A better documentation would be great. For example a list of all Hidden-Prefernces.

After years of struggling with Apple Mail I decided to give it a try. This is the way a mail application should be! Clean, robust and feature rich. No more crashes, lost mails, eternal downloads and so on. It just works. It fully worth the money.

As I understand MailMate collects mails from all accounts into only one inbox. So I have private and work mails mixed up. There was a request in 2014 in the forum to change this but was moved to "bluesky". This makes MailMate a no-go thing. Too bad.

The best, in so many big and small ways. Some may be bothered by the old-fashioned mailbox list, but beauty here goes very, very deep. This is the only email client where I can unfailingly find everything I want. It's the labor of love of one developer who gives outstanding support.
