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...

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.

Was ready to give it a high rating but just found that the Address window is too simple and doesn't integrate well with the Mac's own Contact app. I wanted to send an email to a group of people whom I tagged with a code in their Nickname in Contact, but I found that Airmail's Address View couldn't find them.

So I tried typing the tag in the To: field directly. It shows a list of addresses, but it doesn't allow me to select multiple addresses. I an not even able to drag a group of addresses from the Mac OS's native Contact app to the Airmail email window. Does it mean I have to add the addresses one by one?

I just tried this, might work with Contacts/Address Book groups. If you make a group, and type in the name, it finds that OK here.

Macchelsea replied on 01 Apr 2014
Does it mean every time I want to send an email to more than one recipient, I have to create a group in Contacts? That doesn't make sense and I thing drag-n-drop from Contacts, a native built-in Mac OS X app, should be a basic feature of any email client app.

(Airmail Support here). Airmail integrates flawlessly with either there Apple Address Book or Google Contacts, or both, if they're synced. Individual contacts work fine, as do groups, not sure what the problem is you'e experiencing. But please submit a support ticket directly to: https://airmail.zendesk.com/tickets/new#/ and we'll work with you on it.

Getting better all the time. I really like this mail client now, it's gradually becoming the best there is at the moment.

I'd say it still needs some tweaking with the UI though, butting are a bit too small in the top bar, and some are located in awkward places (such as the 'Empty' button in Trash and Junk), I'm not sure I really like the dark background look, perhaps a user setting would be handy there.

However, overall it works very well, although I don't have any real issues with Mail, there are one or two minor annoying bugs. Airmail is cheap enough, and seems to be getting good development, and good enough support at the price (take note Postbox developers).

Thank you for this.

Just picked this app up today. Cheaper then a cup of coffee. I'm a heavy Gmail user so this app is a refreshing replacement to Sparrow. The only pieces of constructive criticism I can offer is that the UI needs to be cleaned up and the litany of options need to be simplified and explained more carefully. Finally, I hope they spend some time on lowering the CPU/Memory usage. Otherwise this looks very promising and I'm happy to try it out as my goto Gmail app.

(Airmail App Support) The heavy CPU usage occurs with MacBooks and we're working on this. Also, the interface is already cleaned up some in the latest beta, but one of the reasons users are gravitating toward Airmail is more options being available. You might not have noticed in the Menu options (not Preferences) that all of the UI items at the bottom left are individually selectable, that might help.

Since it's a MAS product, our beta runs independently as a separate app and we have a tool to port over your email account settings automatically (or vice-versa). Here are the instructions for the beta, and when you install it, go to Menu > Help > and select "Join the Beta Program" that will automatically send you an email each time the beta is updated. Enjoy!

Install the latest beta 1.4 (236) that incorporates hundreds of improvements and bug fixes. The link is at: http://airmailapp.com/beta/ and you can migrate your email accounts from the MAS version to the beta with the Airmail Migration Tool (AMT) at: http://airmailapp.com/amt/. The MAS and beta co-exist on your Mac…but try to not open them both at the same time.

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 is a superior alternative to Apple Mail.

Thank, Ben-Marko. I believe our next update will turn MacWorld's head a bit. It's already up to 4.5 in the with the 1.3.2 version, but our latest beta includes a much improved SEARCH and also the long-awaited RULES. I posted how to obtain the beta just above this post.

Cannot select the search field in the current version. I can click on it, and enter some data, which brings up the results, but I cannot see what I type.

Previous version was fine.
