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.

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.

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.

Without a question my favorite mail client. Fast, PGP and SMINE integration, powerful filters, markdown, custom keybindings, good offline support, different layouts, the list goes on and on. It takes a while to get used to it but it's worth the time.

For years I wanted to use MailMate but could not because of a dependence on local mailboxes, which it does not support. Eventually I rethought my approach to message archiving, fully embraced IMAP and moved over to MailMate. It has been like the enjoyment of spring after a long winter. MM does almost everything differently, and it takes a little while to understand its ways, but having done so, a steely logic becomes apparent and infinite scope for adapting it to individual preferences. The implementation of smart mailboxes is wonderfully flexible and consistent, and the combination of those with a very sophisticated search system makes MM the perfect environment for retrieving old messages —which is most of what is involved when working with emails. Add a clean, customisable interface, a very responsive developer and rock-like stability, and you have the ideal email client.

Well, I wanted to love this app, it seemed really promising, but my trial is not really convincing...
At first, I thought "Great!" when it offered to import accounts definitions from Mail or Postbox, but it didn't work well: I had to manually edit each of my 12 accounts, add the user name and check port 993 (SSL) — it didn't seem to matter whether I put my pw at this stage or not, it would ask it again (or not!) when syncing.
Sometimes "Edit account" (menu or right-click) was not responding at first try...
Once done, I had to sync the account for something to happen, it might ask once more the pw, as mentioned earlier, but in any way, it only worked if "Save in keychain" was unchecked!!! Sometimes I had to do it a few times before it works.
All this was totally impossible for Gmail: it sends me to my default browser and once accepted by Gmail, I have once more the message to send me to my default browser... (tried many times with clean profiles in Chromium, Firefox or Safari)
After relaunching the app, I had of course to reenter each pw (SBBOD when checking "Save in keychain"...) — this only will be a showstopper, for me!
Once done, the app seemed to work quite ok except I had to do it twice or more when deleting mails...
I'm giving 2 stars because I'm a good guy ;-) but it certainly doesn't suits my configuration (it might work better in recent OSes, I'm still on OS 10.9)

This is by far the best mail application for Mac. It's full of features and does it's job very well. I only wish it was multilingual for our clients, who are not familiar with English. But I can understand it's not an easy process doing it here.

I don't know why it took me this long to finally audition Mailmate. I have been a longtime Postbox customer but they abandoned integrating GPG since V6.0, so I searched for another email program with similar prowess. I downloaded the MailMate trial and it was quickly evident this is the email client I've always needed. Just take my money, wow this program is lean, mean, and versatile. I love the smart mailbox flexibility and after spending a few hours digging through and setting all the various options, I have now achieved email nirvana (for me). Thanks Freron Software. Spend the time folks and discover all the abilities this svelte bit of programing can do for your email work-flow.

After a long journey from Apple Mail and Airmail, trying out Spark and Postbox, I found MailMate at last. It works fine with all my accounts (including Exchange via IMAP) and is so much more reliable than the others! And it has so many wonderful features like the several layouts, correspondence view, fast access via menubar icon ( listing unread/flagged mails with quick actions), custom keybindings, Markdown in message composer, SpamSieve integration, great search capabilities (filters, speed, Spotlight support), robust offline support, and on and on.

The only thing I dislike is the message list view; it's a 2000er-style simple list that a lot of other mail client do better, e.g. Airmail and Spark. I miss swipe gestures and breaking down a message in the list into 2+ rows and showing an avatar to the left. I improved MailMate a bit for me by assigning touch gestures via BetterTouchTool and by setting the line height delta to 10 (via font settings), so that the list is much readable.

If you are fine with IMAP only, then Mailmate is a no-brainer and will make you happy.
Cudos to the developer!!

Left an earlier comment pre-sales. This is a review as now I have purchased it and I have started using it. People are right, this is the best email app I have used to date. Seen them all, most of them anyway. Powerful yet flexible. It has it all. Hands down better than all the others I have used including Mail, Outlook, MailSmith and yes, even Thunderbird. When you find an app with robust (and smart) behaviors already built in, a non nerdy interpretation of how to use it's features (ie powerful but easy to figure out) and solid developer support, you buy it and you don't look back. Glad I did it.

Nervously curious. I have tried so many Mac email programs over the years. As anyone who has done this knows, they come and they go so quickly. Claris emailer and Eudora were two of the best. I have also had a license for versions of (or free), Postbox, Thunderbird, Outlook, Nisus email, Mailsmith, and of course, (Apple) Mail. Demoed several others and found them wanting for this or that reason. PowerMail was the only one I had not tried and from reading it's reviews, looks like it isn't being developed anymore for a few years. I don't mind paying for such an app. I did that for MailSmith back in the day. Of course, like ever other email program, Mailsmith stopped development too eventually. I am encouraged that the developer seems to respond here on Macupdate. I am now watching some youtube videos on MailMate. I certainly am tired of the glitchiness of Apples Mail. Outlooks old mail folders are not readable due to MS proprietary BS. Like I said, I am nervously curious - but encouraged.

The best. The tags are so useful, and search is great. Sometimes the flashy looks of some new app makes me wander away, but I always come back! Just wish there were an iOS app that could sync the tags.

Does anyone know if MailMate puts everything into one single file, which requires Time Machine to backup that one file every time one thing is changed.. Or does it put the mail in smaller files so if something is updated, deleted, changed, etc., it doesn't require backing up that entire large file. This is why Postbox is so bad. Even Apple Mail breaks down the mail content into smaller files.

Does Mailmate support local mailboxes? I like to pull my mail from the server and access them from a local folder. I've been playing with the demo and see this feature missing.

As an email application, this promises reliability and standards compliance over features. But it doesn't deliver. Have spent the better part of a morning trying to get one of six gmail accounts running on this -- no go. It's not fast in fetching or sending mail. It doesn't offer much in the way of display options. The insistence on markdown only is absurd. It's a 2001 interface without much in the way of redeeming speed or options. Over 2 years ago this developer promised a version 2 of Mailmate via Kickstarter campaign with a goal of $25k USD. He was pledged over $42k. That was supposed to see a v2 application released in 2014. Yes, *2014*. This program has been tweaked repeatedly since then (1.x, 1.y, 1.y.x updates), but it's very idiosyncratic. And, as with any application dependent upon a single developer, if your needs/wants don't match his, forget about it. Beyond that, once the sole developer tires of this project, or Google resets its protocols yet again, good luck with the future. It would be great if this program offered a substantive improvement over Postbox (or even Thunderbird), Airmail, etc, but it doesn't -- especially at a $50 license fee. Save your money. Even if nothing better comes along, this isn't worth the cost.

I’ve been using MailMate for over 4 years now and it has paid back the price I paid for it several times over. I rely on this app so much that I happily paid for it again when the developer crowd-funded further development. I love the stripped-down user interface and the keyboard shortcuts that allow me to manage email messages directly from the keyboard. The application is updated frequently and support, either through the mailing list, or from the developer is best-of-class. Although it has remained at 1.x, the application has been updated regular with significant enhancements. Buying this application is paying for a better tool to do a job. If that job is important to you it may be worth it.

I don't know what took me so long to start really using this program. It's really superb, and the best email program I've tried. I have a couple of Gmail accounts, one of which is large with lots of traffic. I found mac mail didn't always play nice, and wanted a reliable program that interfaced well with built in address books and other applications. I loved Airmail for its prettyness, but it still has the odd slight quirk when handling emails. Postbox and Thunderbird have their place but have been a bit clunky and don't seem to integrate so well with the mac systems. Mailplane is useful, but is basically a browser for gmail as far as I can tell. Mailmate has so many nice features. It handles threads and conversations well, and I like the extra 'correspondence' window for following threads. It integrates well with different calendar and task management programs through the useful command menu. Its search is quick, accurate and powerful. It handles multiple accounts well with an integrated inbox. It works out which email accounts I want to send from automatically according to whom I'm emailing (how clever is that?!). It's easy re working with attachments etc. It's not the very prettiest of the programs, but functionally it is really robust, very user-friendly, reliable, and a pleasure to use.

Out of all Mail.app alternatives, MailMate IMHO has the best potential for email power users. I'll certainly give v2.0 another try. When trying Version 1.9.1 (5084) with an Exchange 2013 server (via IMAP) and a 15 GB mailbox (several 100,000's of emails), I ran into the following issues: 1) initial sync took several hours, and the inbox was one of the folders to be sync'd quite late, 2) MailMate crashed on the first email I tried to write (didn't happen anymore since) and didn't even leave a draft, 3) an S/MIME-encrypted was not readable/decryptable by the recipient (works fine in Mail.app with the same user certificate and recipient), 4) PGP-signing emails did not work with a cryptic error message that does not really help me. The real no-go for me is 5) MailMate keeps complaining about unknown IMAP fetch responses (E22) for certain mailboxes and either offers to take the complete account offline or to "try later", which means I have to click away this annoying error message quite often throughout a day. Along with better (i.e., more usable) Exchange IMAP server support, it'd be great to see some other features available as plugins to Mail.app natively in MailMate, such as setting a destination folder to move a newly written mail to after sending (MailHub is great in this area!). For the time being, I'll stick to Mail.app, but I'd really like to see MailMate to improve further.

By far the most capable (by capable I mean to my skillset, not Mailsmith) mail client I have ever used. Everything seems to be in the right place and it all comes together beautifully, it is a pleasure to use. IMAP only but I ditched POP as fast as I could so this is a plus as far as I am concerned. Now if only I had $50 laying around… (deducting ½ star because I don’t have $50 laying around).

This has been my goto email client exclusively for the last 7 months. Search is great, rules for smart mailboxes are very powerful, and it works flawless with my yahoo/gmail/icoud/countermail account. Add in the built-in menu to send an email directly to OmniFocus (and other services, but OF is my tool of choice), and you have a winning application. It also has the best support for encryption that I have found. Developer is very helpful, responsive and engaged in discussions on the mailmate mailing list. Overall I would recommend this for anyone who wants a very powerful email client.

I initially thought MailMate was overpriced. After 5 days, I believe it's worth every penny. I've tried 9 email applications since upgrading to Mavericks. Mail with Mail Act-On had been my go-to app through ML, but is barely usable now (even with the 10.9.2 update). MailMate is the only email app I've tried that has the performance and features I need for efficient work. It's easy to file messages and to quickly open any folder in any account. Fortunately, you can change the font and line-spacing in the Mailbox and Message panels. And the search and smart folder functions are brilliant. I purchased it after using the demo for only 4 days because it has helped me save time. I only wish I hadn't wasted so many weeks on all the other less-expensive email apps.

I wish I could use this app, but it appears that it does not work if you have large volumes of e-mail on your imap server. The beachball spins and spins, and the program is unusable. After wasting a lot of time trying to troubleshoot, I finally found other users complaining about the same problem on MailMate's bug listserv, and the developer explaining that the program wasn't optimized for large volumes of mail. Something about all the mail being indexed in a single pool, and memory management issues. A real shame, since the features look great! But despite all the reviews that describe this as a power user's program, it looks like it's precisely power users who will have trouble.

I just wanted to add my voice to the praise of this excellent email client. It might for some users not that eye candy but what you get is a sophisticated and most reliable email client with tons of features and a responsive developer. Highly recommend for business users but for private users, too! I recommend any interested user to give the test version a serious try!

Caye has said it in a nutshell, and things have only improved since I wrote my review of the previous version (below Caye's). Many of the items mentioned in the reviews below have been addressed (such as seeing how the viewed email is going to look). This is not the Mac App Store; give it a test drive.

Yes it is powerful, but don't let those "for the power-user" reviews turn you away. MailMate delivers power with ease of use as well. MailMate is very fast and has search, smart mailbox (with smart submailboxes), and tagging capabilities better than any I've seen. I love the correspondence view, and the availability of Markup within the composer. The developer is extremely active and is adding capabilities all the time, as well as honing the existing capabilities. He is also extremely responsive.

In the last two updates, MailMate has added functionality that is simply incredible, so it is time for me to write another review. If you have not tried MailMate in the last 2 months, it is also time to run it through its paces again in the light of this functionality. I process a lot of email in a day with something at least 40 emails going out and 60 or so coming in (not counting spam or emails that I don't wish to read). Since I like a clean inbox, and I like to organize what I see coming in, that volume of mail could be very time consuming. However, with MailMate I am able to read and organize my email and keep a clean inbox with little effort and without the time-consuming hassle of moving emails to folders. This is possible because MailMate has added Tagging, and because its search functionality and its extremely smart SmartMailboxes. Some email goes with a particular project, which I tag with the project name; email which is critical but which can't be immediately answered gets a tag of 'critical' (and a tag of its project name, if it goes with a project); email which I've responded to but which I will need to move along further after I receive a reply back is tagged 'followup' (and a project tag, if relevant). Once the email is tagged, I archive it and it is no longer in the Inbox. Tagging is very quick (perhaps a keystroke) as is removing an old tag and adding a new one. Emails are now categorized by some tag of relevance and some tag of what level of reply is needed. I have a smart mailbox for Critical mail and Followup mail, and for some important projects. MailMate can organize the mail within a smart mailbox by any criteria by which you can search: header items, tags, dates, subjects, contacts, the mailer used to sent the message..., the list is almost endless. So, when I look into my Critical smart mailbox I can see all the critical mail organized within folders by Project. I can have another Critical smart mailbox which is organized inside by what day or what month the email arrived (some things are more critical than others ;-) ). So if I can put some organization behind the smart mailbox with essentially no effort. The search capability is amazing due to the ability to search by all those same items as mentioned above, as well as the nest the searches. It is next to impossible to lose any email if you remember anything about it at all. Viewing your emails is also very convenient. There are a number of layouts available, and it is possible to write your own layouts as well. My favorite is "Correspondence" in which while you're reading an email you can see (in another pane) a header each for any other email correspondence with the sender. Another layout that I use sometimes shows at a glance the relationship between each email in a thread (which was a reply to which). I don't know what others use, but I now have any functionality that I used in other email clients, and then some. [That is not to say that MailMate has every functionality of Mail (for instance), but I am sure that it has some that Mail does not] Within MailMate, it is possible to write using markup language, and not only that but it has a WYSIWYG view pane below so that you can see how it will be seen by the people reading the email. It is also easy to place pictures inline in your emails (drag-and-drop while writing as a MarkUp email). [Drag-and-drop also works from an email that you are reading to your desktop.] After writing your email you can also set a time when the email will be sent. I don't know what more I could ask it to do. I want for nothing, and I have a lot more time back since I left Mail almost 3 years ago: both because it is some much easier to use while keeping on top of your mail load, and because it is more spry in handling my 90,000 messages over 3 IMAP accounts. I am sure that I missed some items, but the review is too long already. The developer is very responsive, and that is one of those things that can't be bought (except through a license fee to this developer :-) ).

Oh how I wish the designer of this software didn't have philosophical objections to WYSIWYG email text entry. It's really a fantastic program in all the ways that other reviews have described: quick, stable, with wonderful search capabilities. But not being able to see what your message will look like before you send it, to check that bullets, italics, indentation are all in the right places, makes it impossible for me to use the program. The developer outlines his aesthetic, moral and ethical objections to WYSIWYG for e-mail, but I honestly don't get it, and found MailMate sadly unacceptable for composing mail for this -- and only this -- reason. Please, at least make WYSIWYG an option?

Really nice and useful app. Just purchased to support continued developement. I use Gmail, and just used MailMate to clear out my inbox very quickly and efficiently. I kept Apple Mail open at the same time (easier creation of new Gmail labels from within Apple Mail), as well as Gmail in my browser, and everything worked smoothly (just had to manually initiate sync within MailMate once in a while to keep things updated). A solid email client with truly powerful search --- big timesaver.

MailMate is a very thoughtful and reliable mail client. I appreciate the simple interface and the ability to edit and archive my emails with a few keystrokes. Some highlights are: Intelligent search capabilities, clever handling of signatures, and customization of keyboard commands. For me the possibility to disable the automatic marking of "Read" is very handy, because I share one of my IMAP-accounts with others. The developer is very helpful and responsive. I've used MailMate for several months.

Just gave it a try, MailMate looks good but : no inline images ? I may be missing something but this is a real deal killer. I send lots of pictures and screen captures. I really hope the developer adds that.

I found this program remarkably and pleasantly lightweight and efficient... just what I was looking for in order to access my humongous IMAP database. (I was specifically looking for something less top-heavy and quirky than Thunderbird... don't even mention the native Apple offering.) Unfortunately there is not way I've yet found of deleting messages in the ordinary IMAP way, i.e. simply marking them deleted and periodially compacting folders. I'm afraid that makes MailMate unusable for me. I hope these features get added, I'll come back and try it again if they do.

I was so looking forward to replacing Mail, because Lion gave us the 3-column view with one hand, but with the other hand virtually destroyed the 2nd column. Apparently Apple dumbed it down to look like email on a smartphone. If you want to have a useful header list with multiple, sortable columns, you need to review to the "classic" view. And tools such as Harnly's letterbox no longer work to fix that into something useful. So I was delighted to try MailMate and see if it bridged the gap. Unfortunately for me, after first installing it, the program will not run. When trying to launch it, it simply goes into an indeterminate non-responsive state making Force Quit the only choice. I find it odd with all the complaints here that OS X Mail is sluggish and prone to hang; I find the opposite. OS X Mail is quite stable for me (although it does get sluggish); MailMate will not even run for me. I should say that I have quite a large volume of mail; probably in excess of 5GB. Don't know if that is a factor. I "should say it", even at the risk of provoking a lot of adverse comment about such a volume. Because I have not been able to use the program, I cannot give it a rating, except possibly for stability: "it will not run." But this dialog forces a rating. So what can I do? I suppose I could try a reinstall. For now, since it does not work at all, I have uninstalled it.

I'd like to add the the chorus of positive feedback for this seemingly simple, yet immensly powerful mail client. I've had to move to IMAP for various reasons and MailMate is the only app I've found so far that doesn't get in the way adding unnecessary features. This came home the other day while trying to show my wife how Mac OS X Lion Mail worked... (it basically didn't). She's getting MailMate. It feels like there is a lot to come from MailMate. The developer is working really hard on this and is very responsive. I hope this project goes well enough to allow him to keep on with it. I think it has the potential to be a five-star app and I for one, am onboard.

Before you buy licenses for Sparrow, Postbox, or commit to another Mail client on Mac, give MailMate a try. I followed all the reviews for Sparrow and paid for it, THEN used it for two weeks and realized it came up short. I am a very satisfied MailMate user and I want to see it survive. I think MailMate is woefully under-publicized. Good software surprises a user with thoughtful features. MailMate helps in subtle ways that just aren't obvious until you use it for a few weeks. Things like smart signatures, noticing that "attached" is in the body and asking if something needs to be attached if I forgot, and checking if I've changed a subject line in a reply do I want to start a new thread. By far my favorite feature is "Correspondence View", which is hard to describe in words. Correspondence View ROCKS! This is one of those functions that you don't know you need until you try it. It's excellent for seeing all associated emails to make the task of purging easy and fast. I finally have my grossly overwhelmed gmail account of 12,000 messages whittled down to 3,000 (and improving daily)!

Very good IMAP client: fast, easy too use, powerful search feature, full offline support. Also developer is very responsive to solve the problem.

Fast. Powerful. More flexible (search-wise) than anything I've seen since the days when Mailsmith actually mattered. Add tagging capabilities and GPG support, and you'll have me 100% (not to mention that fifth star) for the foreseeable future.
