I'm still using Unibox in 2022 under 10.14, although Apple Mail has improved a lot in recent versions but I can't find any other app with such a clean and uncluttered interface! Sadly, I guess the dev died or something as he abruptly ceased to publish anything on Twitter in october 2017. :-(

Unibox support is non-responsive. No update for a while. What irks me is I can not seem to get rid of old email addresses that autocomplete and I keep sending emails to people's old email addresses. I can't get rid of them. I tried to ask Unibox support and I get no response. Frustrating. Guess I will go back to Apple Mail.

Still using both iOS and macOS versions, though its not been updated sine 2018. No app came close so far. Tried Spike for a while (3 months) but ditched it after privacy concerns.

No update since 2018... Here's another long standing issue, though: when you press the delete key to ditch an email, it often doesn't seem to work — the mail moves as if it was deleted but comes back in view — so you press delete again, but it doesn't move... Going to the Trash can, you see it actually deleted the mail the first time, then deleted an older mail from the same sender! :-o Luckily, this doesn't happen when clicking on the Delete icon, but this issue is a real pity. :-(

I've just found another issue: URLs that you paste in a mail won't be recognized as such in any mail manager under MacOS 10.4.11 PPC (I couldn't test 10.5) — tested Mail.app, Postbox and Thunderbird — and won't be clickable by the recipient. They are probably somehow malformed. I've tested the same text sent by Mail.app, Postbox or Thunderbird: no problem. The funny thing is that the only one I've found that has the same issue is the old Sparrow, from which Unibox is very "inspired"... ;-) You might say that very few people still use Tiger, but who knows if the issue is not present in some other OS? Anyway, using an app that you can't rely on at 100% is quite daunting... :-(

Still love this app. It's a regular launch for me when I want to cut through my emails pretty quickly, but it's not my go-to mail app (that's still Apple's own Mail) because it doesn't handle filing and etc. as seamlessly as it could.

Still and all, it's unique in the field and a great app. I won't call it dead in the water -- the developer did just update it in October 2018 -- but its feature set seems to have stalled and, like a few others, I've not received any feedback on feedback.

FWIW, Eightloops does have a Twitter account, but there's never been any activity. I'll keep checking it, this page, and their site, and hope they continue development -- it's a good app and well worth consideration.

I'm on my way to switching from Mavericks to El Capitan and tried this last version of Unibox: it doesn't see or import the mail accounts from version 1.5.2 — and probably from any other version! :-o Apple Mail 9.3 is horribly slow compared to Maverick's but I don't have time to set up again my many accounts in Unibox, just because the dev didn't even think that former users might someday update their app... ;-) Luckily v1.5.2 still works ok in El Capitan.

I posted today a reply(not comment) that Unibox developer responded to my question about the development. It's in work, updates...etc. So I think it's a good news.

After leaving it aside for a few months, I've recently started using Unibox 1.5.2 on a daily basis. I really love the clear and simple interface, it turns the daily use of mails into a delight! Having no support for Spamsieve, it means that you have to have Apple Mail (or Postbox ;-) ) running in the background, and run to those apps when you have some complex stuff to do. So, it is not a Mail replacement for demanding users, but rather a pleasant interface for it, and it's ok when you think of it that way — though it's probably perfect for common users with 1 or 2 accounts (but those probably don't feel the need for an Apple Mail replacement...) Unfortunately, they stopped supporting OS 10.9.5, so this review is for v1.5.2.

I'm trying Unibox at this moment. The first few minutes of looking how brilliantly this application works, I'm totaly amazed! It took 30 seconds for Unibox to identify all my gmail settings and then presented me with absolutely fresh idea of sorting the email in the most efficient way, sorting it 'from/sender". Sure, Apple mail has all kinds of sorting, even "from". But NOT like Unibox does it.
It's not only by "sender", but also chronologically. If you get an email from Jerry, it goes on top, and all emails from Jerry are included. A number on the right side shows the total number of Jerry's emails. So, here you have a very easy opportunity to clean up all your emails.
So, so far it's brilliant and super effective!

I purchased Unibox a while ago, liked the way it handles mail but wasn't happy completely. I discovered some minor bugs about which I sent mail to the developers but never received an answer so I stopped using it. After a recent crash I reinstalled Unibox from a backup, opened it once and returned to my present standard mail programma. After clicking on a mail link on a websit Unibox opened. Eeh? I checked the settings of Mail and indeed, Unibox had promoted itself without my consent to my standard mail program. I changed the setting in Mail back to my standard mail program only to find out that Unibox again had returned as the standard mail program. I repeated this several times but to no avail: Unibox kept coming back as the standard mail program. This is unheard of. So I removed Unibox completely from my system and believe me, it will never return there. Pity as it has a lot of potential. For the software as such I could easily give 4 stars, the arrogance of the developers to ignore reactions from users and the impossiblity to remove it as standard mail program scales the rating down to half a star.

At first try, a really nice app but still no support for Spamsieve and their blog doesn't look like they're doing active development... :-/ (last update 10 months ago...) Their FB page and Tweeter are full of messages from happy customers, which is great, but I'd rather see some news about what the devs are working on, instead. ;-)

5 stars for the cool email client but unfortunatelly 0 stars for the not existent support. Support doesn't reply to any requests. Products without support are worthless.

This replaced Mail and all of the other options well over a year ago and I've been content with it since. It has its bugs, but it is so far above the other options as far as keeping things in a consolidated location that I have been able to overlook any of the glitches.

And I have to say that my glitches probably simply stem from managing a much larger number of email addresses than most folks. :)

Oh, and their support team is rather responsive to boot.

I've been using Unibox for about two years now. The concept has been working great for me. The idea is that all your emails are grouped by contacts so email looks like more like an instant messaging app. This for one encourages you to write shorter emails. It's when I open my inbox in another client like mail.app I realise how messy it is! In Unibox it looks nice and organised and you have the impression that there's much less email in your inbox. Read the "inbox zero" article on their FAQ page to get this auto-organising working. I used this setup about two years ago, and didn't touch anything ever since. No complicated folder structures, smart folders, auto whatever. Recently they added more keyboard shortcuts and now you can everything without touching the mouse. I'm on the beta channel and there's an update almost every week, it feels good to know the app is being very actively developed.

Very refreshing take on email app for Mac. It's not a one-trick pony and unlike the others, this offers departure from traditional email views which become less and less useable today. Yes, it misses many other things I like about some other apps such as...

1. Postbox - ability to file to Evernote client (LOCALLY)
2. Mail app OSX with EverMail plugin - ability to file to another non-local Evernote account (REMOTE account)
3. Opera Mail - TABBED interface option (yes, I still do like it so much and I find the tabbed approach to email in certain situations very useful, if need to work on a project and sift through information in different emails in different threads etc)

But overall, this app looks great.

Perhaps one last thing on my wish list would be integration with Linkedin, so I could see the person's profile and click button "Connect" to send the invite.. (well at least somewhat similar to what the Tipbit app does today on iOS).

How would you rate Unibox?
