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.

Overall, I'm a little disappointed. Canary looks good, is fast, and has solid security support. Then there are the basic functions that are missing: - message tagging - some kind of rules-based sorting feature, to automate moving messages to folders Finally, the defect in the message editor incorrectly creating email or phone number links. To be fair, I've observed in Spark and Airmail: the message editor does not create links properly. Try creating a link for your signature, containing an email address or phone number. Canary (and Spark and Airmail) simply prefix the link text with 'https://'. Insert a phone number, say 333-333-3333 as 'tel:3333333333' and you get 'https://tel:+13333333333'. Click it, instead of opening your dialer, it opens a browser and fails to find the site. Try an email address link, and 'mailto:abc@xyz.com' becomes 'https://mailto:abc@xyz.com'. Click that, and again you open a browser instead of creating a new message to that recipient.

wanted to use Canary, but it does not accept digital attachments even 18 mb !!! why??? Spark has no problem with that. But the search in Canary is fast, while spark's search is useless.

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.
