And now it has reappeared after two months:

http://blog.sparrowmailapp.com/post/14164562667/sparrowlite15

"Sparrow Lite is now full-featured.

General IMAP support, multi-account, unified inbox, CloudApp, Dropbox, Send and Archive, extended sidebar… it’s all there.

The only difference with the paid version is that Sparrow Lite is ad-supported and will include a Sent with Sparrow signature in all your outgoing mails."
