Easy and elegant e-mail client.

Overview

Canary is an exciting new email client for Mac that offers a full set of powerful features with one key difference - your emails are not stored on a 3rd-party server. Every facet of Canary has been designed in accordance with our core philosophy of ensuring complete user privacy and offering reliable and snappy performance. Unlike other apps/services, using Canary is not contingent on providing access to your data.

  • Read Tracking - Canary notifies you instantly when your email is read.
  • Email Snooze - Declutter your Inbox in an instant and deal with emails at your convenience.
  • Unified Inbox - Canary features a unified inbox and supports Gmail, Yahoo!, Outlook, FastMail and universal IMAP.
  • Fully Local - Your emails are encrypted and stored locally and securely on your Mac, not on an online server.
  • Gmail Labels and Filters - Canary supports labels and social/promotional email segregation that Gmail users love.
  • Attachments Browser - Quickly find, download, and open every file that you've ever sent or received.
  • Quick Reply - Compose at the speed of thought with inline replies and direct keyboard shortcuts for your favorite contacts.
  • Powerful Search - Instantly find an email with powerful predicate-based search that works even when you're offline.
  • Amazing Performance - Canary is engineered to offer an incredibly snappy user experience, with minimal CPU and RAM use.

This would be a great competitor to Airmail and Spark except for one thing: it insists that the user go to their gmail account and make "All Mail" visible. That creates havoc with my email, making it impossible to find anything. No other client insists on this. Otherwise I like most things about it: the look, the integration of OpenPGP (which Airmail and Spark do not have), the workflow.

I am installed canary and upgraded it to Pro on my imac OS10.15.2 because Apple Mail suddenly stopped send my emails. I think I've wasted my money on Canary. Canary help is useless. I cannot get ordinary features to work. No stars from me.

This App drives me crazy! I no sooner get used to Canary, putting up with some weird anomalies when suddenly I get Canary Pro - I don't want the trial! How do I restore my originally purchased Canary programme? Canary search is difficult, Canary Pro doesn't seem to offer me the option to use my own colour and font when I compose and keep it for every email ( I have to change it every time I compose a new email - what!!!?) Oh heavens - and how the heck to do I contact anyone at Canary??? HELP.

So far OK. The interface needs some tweaking to make it more user friendly and simpler because right now it is quite cumbersome. Read receipts are cool (coming from a Newton mail user). Also need to ramp up sync speed. IT is quite on the slow side.

Is there a way to make the font size bigger in the preview pane? I love the look but was curious about that feature. Same question about the sidebar where I see all of my accounts listed.

It's a good mail app with some nice features. But there is no free trial version. You have to fork over $20 to try it. There is also no support. It took me a while to figure out how to contact the support . It's buried deep in the Help section. Even then, they are not responsive. What good is an app if you cannot get any help?

I agree. Spent money, havings problems, email help sucks.
Seems like a possible great app but who cares if can't make it work without phone type support. We are not all tech savvy.

I'm not spending $20 on something that won't let me try it first. Especially given the concerns raised in the comments here.

Mac and iOS clients are unable to sync snoozed emails reliably, resulting in different inboxes between clients. This renders the snooze feature useless. I deleted iCloud data on all 3 clients (Mac, iPhone, iPad) and deleted and reinstalled app without change in behavior. Tried to contact support for 2 days with essentially no response (the one reply I got was a "what's wrong?" at 3am). If you want to use snooze and have it sync reliably across different devices look elsewhere.
