developer'site is last updated in December 2018 and it says. "We're working on the transition GyazMail to 64-bit." So it is being actively developed by Goichi Hirakawa, the developer. Check his website: http://www.gyazsquare.com/gyazmail/

My only problem with GyazMail is that if you have a sketchy wifi connection it will hang on an action, such as deleting a message, and the only way to recover is to quit and reliaunch. It doesn’t pick up where it was when connectivity is better. I know that sounds like a lot to ask but GyazMail is the only client I’ve had this problem with and it’s been ongoing for years.

I really like the new look of GyazMail. The only drawback seems to be the lack of an FAQ to help sort out how to properly configure the system folders with Gmail.

It appears the default settings have all system folders set to GyazMail, and as such deleted messages are not being put into my Gmail Trash. That said, even though the folder configuration also has Sent messages configured for the GyazMail Sent folder, any sent messages do get added to my [Gmail]/Sent folder. So why wouldn't the same thing apply to deleted messages...they should go to Gmail Trash instead of GyazMail's Trash folder. I know I can configure these folders in Preferences, but there is no guidance on how to properly do so for a Gmail account.

A great application! I've been using it since 2005 and still like it. Multi email accounts & remote server access are but a few reasons to use it. While some features are missing (like smart folders or deleting attachments while keeping the email) or have a minimalistic appearance (most options) it's a very nice email client. The Rules, filters and regex support make it a powerful application. I really like the possibility to use several names & email aliases for the same mail account.

There appears to be a bug between Gyazmail and iCloud since yesterday. Refreshing iCloud folders, creating iCloud folders, checking iCloud mail, moving messages to iCloud folders either manually or through rules. All yield 90% of the time an error: Communication error EOF Hope to see a bug fix soon to the best mac mail app out there!

And again, from within the app (upon being notified there's a new version available) and when choosing the link here at MacUpDate to go to the developer's site: 403 Access Denied Weird. But the "Download Now" link on MacUpDate works, luckily.

Still trying to find a good replacement for Eudora. This one is promising. 1. Cannot import from Apple Mail. Import Mail is grayed out. 2. How do you tell gyazmail to NOT download large files? Looked in prfeerences, couldn't find it. Mail and Eudora and Thunderbird all had that feature. 3. How do you get Junk mail to filter automatically into Trash or a Junk folder? I tried setting up a rule but couldn't find anything that would recognize a tagged Junk message as junk so that it could be selectively filtered. Thanks!

EXCELLENT!!! I've been looking for at least 5 years for a good quick mail client, and had to drag around with PowerMail (because Mail.app was too sluggish and couldn't handle 100000+ mails, and couldn't handle mail aliases). PowerMail handles aliases just fine, but there's no find-in-this-email feature; besides, it has its flaws. Yesterday I discovered GiazMail, and I've been mean to it all morning (for 8 hours now), and it seems rock solid and quite quick. The developers definitely did a very, very good job. It's much more usable than Mail.app!!

in comparison to all other mail clients on the market (tested most of them but not all, of course), GyazMail seems pretty much the best (features, ease of use, stability, customizability). If i only could get IMAP to work !!! (Apple Mail sends and gets new IMAP mail for a sample account - so, the serverside settings seem to be ok). In the prefs i created the new account for IMAP but no access happens. Has anybody successfully been using IMAP with GyazMail ?

With some small configurations and tweaks it becomes a very good (and in some cases a better) alternative to the king of MUAs: Eudora (RIP). Solid rock. Handles 2GB of 100,000 mails (POP) without any problem. The functions I miss most from Eudora is the ability to change the Subject on incoming mail and the ability to only keep the mail and not the enclosed files in the box. Very impressive creation of a single developer. And you can't beat the price (other that free that is).

I sure am glad my Inbox doesn't look like the one in the screenshot! I keep HTML & remote images disabled by default for security, and then enable them manually from the View menu when reading mail from known sources. When I come upon mail from an unknown sender, or in the Junk/Spam box I close the window ⌘w (cmd+w) and then open a new window ⌥⌘n (opt+cmd+n) before getting to the questionable image. This automatically switches the settings back to html & remote images disabled instead of having to do it manually.

I'm an old time Eudora fan, still using it today under 10.6.4. Painfully, over time, one realizes that Eudora is not coming back, and that the stability on the latest OS versions is going down. Yes, it is still usable, but no longer 100% reliable as it has been for all those years (since 1992!!! I was 12 ...) So I have been looking at all the email possibilities out there for mac. GyazMail being one of them, herewith my findings after a week of use on 100293 messages, 24703 attachments and 1.47 GB of space. Let there be no mistake:: NO, Gyazmail is not like Eudora. It is (much) slower in search, it does not have an as complete and detailed feature set as Eudora, and I do miss some features that good old Eudora had. GyazMail is developed by 1 guy only, in his sort of hobby time, while Eudora used to be developed full time by so many professional developers. So YES, it is a downgrade from Eudora. BUT!!! It is as stable as Eudora used to be. I mean, rock solid stable. I have been throwing numerous email problems at GyazMail over the past few days, and it goes through them as a Gentleman. It operates in about 50 MB of RAM. Eudora does it in roughly 100 MB RAM and Mail or thunderbird ... don't even go there, we need to add a 0 at the end to start making sense. Impressively small application. It does have some features that Eudora did not have accessible in a user friendly way. I loved the GUI of Eudora, and while GyazMail is very different, it is an improvement to me. After these few days comparing usage between clients, and having to realize that I am downgrading in speed and a few cosmetic features, I am confident that I will keep GyazMail for the foreseeable future, using it both for my personal and business email needs. Thumbs up for GyazMail!

I need to sort by email address! Can you please add an optional "Email" column? You'll be my hero! I'm sure that countless other people would also appreciate this sorting option. Thank you!

This is a nice email client that resembles Apple Mail in many ways (and I mean that as a compliment). Except for one glaring omission. As far as I can tell (unless I've somehow overlooked a hidden setting), there's no support for composing HTML emails. I want to switch my wife over to GyazMail from Thunderbird, and although she likes everything else about it, the lack of HTML support in composing messages is a deal-breaker for her. I'm hoping the developer adds this feature soon, so I can drag Thunderbird to the trash.

While encryption would be great ... I'd like to see Smart Folders and/or Spotlight integration. Mail is simply unreliable. Gyaz just works. But searching for a message is so much easier in Mail that I find myself using both.

I second the request for support for encryption. I understand it's planned for a future release, but hope it comes sooner than later. This is - to me - the only weakness in the program. I switched from Mail because of constant crashes, and so far GyazMail has been rock solid. I'll stick with it, but miss the ability to sign/encrypt.

My wife and I have been using GyazMail for years now. My wife has been using it consistently, I waffle back and forth between Mail and GyazMail. I thought with Leopard I would stick with the new and improved Mail.app, but ... it inexplicably loses message texts! Not often, but every once in a while I get new mail, click on it and the body of the message is missing. (Not because it is an image or group of images - seems random). Despite all the cool features Mail has now, I find my self once again using GyazMail because, as everyone else here has said, "it just works."

A great example of "no fuss, it just works" software. Very fast - much faster than Mail.app on Leopard - no problems with IMAP (perfect synchronisation, and one of the few clients I have ever used which has not added its own folders, unasked, to the server tree), complete control over what message content downloaded (omit embedded images and/or remote images and/or HTML, and the omissions always work) and the feature set is just right; no glitz and no unimportant options presented up front, unlike Mailsmith or Thunderbird. As others note, $18 is a bargain!

Having used GyazMail for quite a while now, I've found it to be a pleasure to use...totally stable, rock solid and dependable. It's got a lovely UI and a fine set of well thought out features. About the only features that I'd like to see included are: ability to import one's own sound files for new mail notification, and ability to bounce unwanted email back to sender. GyazMail is well worth its $18.

A quick update from my review back in May 07. It's now been nearly six months since I bought GyazMail and it is still my choice of email client. I have gone back to try Mail.app and Thunderbird once or twice but always end up back with Gyaz, primarily because of the imap support, especially when going on and off line regularly. The search function could still be a little more intuitive and the saving of messages to the Draft mailbox prior to sending was a bit annoying but I see that has been removed in 1.5.6. Still the best imap client for OS X imho.

I bought this e-mail client quite soon after arriving on the Mac platform in March of this year, my requirements in a mail client after previously using 'The Bat' on Windows were quite extensive, most of them were catered for with GyazMail. Now 6-months in, this software simply works. I don't use IMAP, preferring POP3, however, the software is always stable, has *almost* never crashed, and even when it has on perhaps the 2 or 3 occasions, it hasn't lost any information. A great range of functions, integration with Address Book in OSX and with Spamsieve for first class antispam (currently 99.8% correct after 76,000 messages). The only area's of major improvement I should like to see are 'Search' whcih desperately needs a more polished working interface and perhaps the ability to create mail with rich text if you need it, though in 99% of cases I'm happy and indeed prefer plain text. Considering the developers asking price for this software it is simply superb!

I've been using GyazMail for around 2 months now, having bought it as soon as imap support was added. I'm very, very happy with it, the imap support is head and shoulders above Mail or Entourage. I spend around half of the time offline and the imap support for this, and especially synchronising when I go back online, is first rate. Negatives: as mentioned by others here, the search function is patchy, and an integrated backup would be nice, but overall GyazMail is one of the few bits of OS X shareware (along with Spam Seive and Transmit) that are well worth shelling out for.

Switched to GyazMail some weeks ago. Before I used popMonitor + Entourage; both applications were not intel optimised and I got tired of having to use two applications just to read (and burn) email. Now I am very happy with GyazMail, it have all the features Musashi was promising (I registered it some 4 years ago) but never achieved.

Like the app, much faster than Mail when syncing to IMAP accounts, but the search has got some serious issues. "Anywhere" doesn't search anywhere. If I get results with a specific phrase with "Subject" I certainly should at least get those exact results with "Anywhere". "Anywhere" should include "Subject". But the app apparently doesn't work that way. I can only presume this is a bug. It needs smart folders, better integrated search, better handling/display of threaded e-mail.

I used to use GyazMail exclusively a couple of years ago, when it was in its 0.9.X.X phase. There have been nice developments with it over the years, but it seems odd to me that smart folders have not become a standard feature in the program yet. Apple Mail is quite flaky for me, so I use Entourage instead these days (which has "smart folders" in its "Mail Views" function), but I would likely switch to GyazMail if that sort of functionality was implemented.

If you do not care for Spotlight and do not need to send encrypted email... this *is* the gold standard of Cocoa email clients. Rock solid stability and performance! Best yet I actually feel like I have control over all the fonts so I can get a preferred condensed layout (Lucida Grande 9 (variable width), Consolas 9 (fixed width)). This email client fit the bill for me, because I do not want to spend my communication life inside Terminal.app, nor want to spend weeks massaging a .muttrc, but yet I still want full connectivity with the rest of OSX that comes much easier in the form of a Cocoa application. GyazMail reminds me [after years of Mail.app] that a Cocoa email application doesn't have to be slow and crash occasionally -- sometimes often given that you need at least a half dozen mail.app plugins to make Mail.app useful. If you've ever seen how skimpy Mail.app's preferences are, you'll be pleasantly surprised at all the little details you had no control over before. It also isn't evolving into the pos that Mail.app is headed... there is no stationary, rich text email, checking your iChat buddy status inline with message headers... so if you're not into all the features built for your Mom, then by all means check out this alternative email client. It also natively supports using SpamSieve, the mac gold standard in client-side SPAM checking. When used in conjunction with server-side filtering, you got that SPAM thing covered... I would like to eventually see GnuPG support native to the application (like MailSmith). All in all, it is nice to have a robust Cocoa email client that I do not feel the need to weight down with 3rd party plugins.

I'm with Tuishimi. I am so close to switching to GyazMail, but it's the tiny things that count at this point (now that it has IMAP -- yay!!!!). I would miss Mail Act-On terribly. I devised a workaround (using QuicKeys), but nothing can match Act-On's elegance. And I really like the way Mail tokenizes addresses so that they're easy to move between the address fields. Also, another small feature that is so nice: After I've started a reply in Mail, if I then select Shift-Cmd-R it switches to Reply All, without needing to backtrack and start the reply all over again. GyazMail doesn't permit this. If the developer would add just a few of these power features, he'd have a true Mail knockout, I think. From what we can see so far about Leopard Mail, it has nothing much to appeal to power users (HTML templates? Blah). For now, I'm still in a holding pattern on GyazMail.

Like FRACTACULAR I purchased GyazMail a few years back when Mail.app was about as reliable as cheap memory. He nailed it when he mentioned 6 stars for stability. Wish list / question: Does GyazMail have a plugin interface? Something that could be used to, for example, create an add-on like MailTags for it?

I really love GyazMail. I gave it a shot a couple years ago when Apple Mail started crashing all the time and was really unpleasant to use. From the moment I set it up, I was very happy with the way GyazMail worked, and quickly found a great workflow and setup that is clean, efficient, stable, and pleasant. It is one of few sharewares I have ever gone on to purchase, and I do not regret that decision at all. I think the price is VERY reasonable. Developer support has been brilliant; in addition to fixing some bugs he has implemented a few features I requested! I give it a 4 in features because there is some weirdness with HTML mails. Although it opens them in my browser no images display and this has seriously hindered my work with some clients. I would give this program a *6* for value and stability, it is rock-solid and worth every cent.

There were always issues when I used either Eudora, Thunderbird or Mail app. I found Mail to be the one that worked best for me, but still not without reoccurring glitches. I've got both a POP account and an IMAP account. And then I tried Gyazmail.......well, this app really rocks! It's totally stable, fast, smooth and reliable. It works like a Swiss watch and is a joy to use! I, initially, was reluctant to shell out money for an email client when there are freebies like the three very popular ones mentioned above, but once I gave Gyazmail a spin, I was sold! Been using it for several weeks, now, and I'm smiling all the way. Yes, I think the $18 price is well worth the money; I'm glad I purchased it.

Well well well... GyazMail gets IMAP support. This is a sea change in the mail client environment. I find it interesting that a small, one-person developer can add IMAP support (and it seems pretty robust too), when larger developers can't seem to or don't want to. Where is the IMAP support in Mailsmith? PowerMail is an otherwise great product, but their IMAP support is awful. The problem is, though, that there are now so many incredibly useful addons to Apple Mail (MailTags, MailActOn, Notification), as well as other applications that have tightly integrated support for Mail (DEVONthink Pro Office for example). Still, kudos to this developer!

One of the best mail apps for mac. I switched to it from Apple's mail app, because the management of a single mailbox with different addresses works much better (and does not produce annoying errors as Mail.app did). Also it's feature-bursting and very reliable, still Apple-like in style. The only two drawbacks: The search function could be easier to use (it works fine, though); IMAP's lacking (which is not a prob for me and is promised to be added in the future). Two bonuses of this anyway impressive software: A very long testing period (40 days) and a very responsive and friendly support.

Note to email application developers: IMAP. Many of us crucially depend on IMAP. If the application doesn't support it, no matter how good it is, this is a deal breaker. Gyaz has been promising IMAP for a long time. Is it coming?

GyazMail has become my primary mail client for five reasons: 1. Images, HTML/script content and similar potential problems are unfailingly parsed out of spam, something which Mail.app still does not do infallibly; 2. Very fast at retrieval, even over encrypted connections (gmail/gmx) which other clients often slow down excessively at; 3. Each account is strictly separated in the folder hierarchy - I am not a fan of "universal inboxes" and similar attempts to divert every account into one structure; 4. Straightforward - even slightly old-fashioned - user interface with a lot of customisation possible; 5. Easy integration with Growl and SpamSieve; both "just work" without any scripts or plugins having to be installed. Overall, excellent, and a reminder that the latest user interface fashions may not last.

Is there a way to see mutiple recipients in the "To:" field? (Or the Cc or Bc fields, fo that matter.) I can input multiple addresses, but after 3 or so they are no longer visible. I bought this program and really like everything else about it, but the ability to see the list of multiple recipients seems to be a standard feature in other browsers.

I have been a long time user of Gyazmail and am generally very pleased with it. New in Version 1.3.2 is the ability to move the message viewer to the right instead of below as shown in the image below. I use an iBook and found the three vertical panes cramped and therefore not practicle. Even the new features offered by apples Mail have not persuaded me to leave Gyazmail. I would like to see the introduction of smart folders in Gyazmail. Another thing I think needs addressing urgently is the ability to change fonts in a message. Also Signatures sholud accommodate images. I use POP accounts and Gyazmail is fine for these and easy to set up. Gyazmail works well with Spamieve and Growl. Overall what most appeals to me is that Gyazmail has a clean UI it has a finder quality with folders which I prefer to that offered by Mail. Support from the developer has always been very prompt and helpful. I give this software 5 stars. hardcat

What's so great about IMAP? Only the fact that it is a universal standard and many institutions only support IMAP. I have one POP account, so I won't even download GyazMail. It may be a nice program, but it's just not for me.

Great mail client! I don't need IMAP - so I'm very happy with it. Point to be noted: it stores every single message as a single file on the Mac. This means that there is no single large database that could get corrupted. It also means that data backup is much faster because each incremental backup just copies any newly created files. Great work!

What's so great about IMAP? I've used both POP3 and IMAP at the same time, and even on a LAN IMAP is dog slow, and nearly useless if you have tens of thousands of emails. Maybe POP3 isn't so great, but (imho) IMAP is so much worse. Giving a 1 star rating to a program just because it doesn't have a feature you "need" is very uncool. You are not even going to use the program, so how can you rate it?!?!? Now, if you weren't going to use it because it crashed, that's one thing, but...

I don't need IMAP, so this application has turned out to be a very nice replacement for Mail.app. Actually I use it for my work mail and keep private mails in Mail.app Since the application is pure Cocoa it handles Japanese very well (the developer is Japanese), and the way things are displayed can be customized in a much more fine grained way than in Mail.app. I can for example simply have GyazMail ignore HTML in mails and just display the mail as a plain text message. Mail.app still doesn't do that properly. I can have GyazMail not mark messages as read even if I read them in the preview pane, which is something I use often, so I can mark messages as read once they're read, replied to and dealt with. GyazMail also shows the correct number of unread mails in the Icon in the Dock, since that number includes all unread mails even the ones in subfolders. To get the same functionality in Mail.app I would have to use a hack (MailEnhancer). Try it out it's a nice alternative!

What is it with all these IMAP obsessed people griping? In 20 years i've never had a need of IMAP, and i really doubt i'm alone in that. And i use about 20 different email addresses at any one time. There are plenty of IMAP capable email clients if you need that.

I tried this applicaton, and it might just be me, but I don't get it. Why would I pay for an alternative to mail (which is free). Expecially since this program lacks quite a few major features (imap/exchange). Hey, if your going to make something that already exists for a mac, you should consider to make it better than what comes with a mac (mail). If not, then you shouldn't try to make people pay for a "crippled" product.

This gets to join the ranks of PowerMail and its lack of usefulness because of no IMAP support. These days its like not putting tires on a car but still bragging about the radio. The radio serves no purpose if the vehicle does not do what its intended for at a basic level. POP3 went out years ago in corporate America and quite frankly I am glad. It lacks functionality and practicality. Some may still use POP3 and that is a matter of choice. I dont even care to argue which is better, just that its MISSING.

I wish I could give as glowing review as the posts below. I've just downloaded the app and tried to add accounts, however there is NO IMAP support. Even the most basic email clients ensure that the few protocols necessary: POP3, IMAP etc are covered. Considering my email accounts are IMAP it makes this app pretty much useless for me and is certainly no match for Apple Mail, Thunderbird etc therefore I immediately deleted it from my system. At the moment Gyaz is like a word processor without the ability to print. I'll try GyazMail again one day when it comes up to scratch and implements the basic functions that are expected from such a client.

I went with Gyaz Mail last february when Mail.app under Panther had some kind of problem with getting mail. Apple offered no help or acknowledgement. Another user recommened Gyaz, I tried the demo, and have never looked back. More than worth the $18, and the author is most conscientious about upgrading and bug-fixing. I'll agree that some features are missing; none I find deal-breaking for their absence. Gyaz takes care of my mail in a way that I no longer have to worry about it..as it SHOULD be. After all, it's e-mail, not 3D rendering.

I've been working with GyazMail for nearly 2 years now and I'm extremely happy with it. There are only two issues I have with it: lack of decent searching capabilities and slight speed hit for a large database of saved mail. The developer is somewhat responsive, although he doesn't respond much to feature suggestions. Bug-wise, I've had good response from the developer. I really don't notice any bugs in day-to-day use. I certainly am glad that I purchased GyazMail, and promote it to people whenever I can. I am hoping that it will gain decent search capabilities when Spotlight is enabled in 10.4.

I use GyazMail as my primary mail server for a year now: it's faster than Apple's, elegantly designed, imported 3 years of Eudora mail with folders and all, works fine with SpamSieve as filter. I miss, though, the ability to customize text in a message: bold, italic, different sizes: all to emphasize something. (although I reckon that not having this feature is part of it's elegance...): I miss something like this a lot. It's worth the price paid

GyazMail is certainly more useful to me than Apple's Mail (or any other OS X e-mail client I've tried); however, I believe it would benefit from some simple changes. I save my e-mail and I don't like to impose a restrictive hierarchical structure using the usual folders/mailboxes. I prefer to keep it all together and search for what I want. Unfortunately, GyazMail is very slow to do this, slower, in fact, than using the standard unix tools (like grep). My e-mail represents a valuable resource in which I must be able to find things quickly. I believe I am not alone in this interest. Searching should be improved, and it should be possible to save queries. Another thing (which I find rather annoying) in the message list: GyazMail only displays the sender or the recipient. This is a problem because I want to see who I sent a message to AND who sent a message to me (not one or the other). I would prefer to use a different font attribute to indicate that the sender is me. It would also be useful if rules for outgoing messages were able to interrupt the send process (for instance: to avoid sending from the wrong account).

I have used Gyazmail for a couple of years. It's great. It just works and is dependable. I don't use it now, though, as I switched to an IMAP service. Bring on IMAP supoort and I may return to it.

Bought the product. Love the look and feel much better than mail. Love the integration with SpamSieve, way it handles multiple accounts, and the mail filters. Unfortunately, I'm now in the position of having to use IMAP for my work email which forces me back to using Mail. Please add IMAP support soon!

Again, no IMAP support, no S/MIME support, no PGP/GPG support, plus it's shareware. Why i would bothered pay for an mua that has less features than a freeware? Generally, when you ask people to pay for your software, its because it has some unique/great features that freewares hasn't, but this is not the case with Gyazmail...

Works like a charm! I especially like the SPAM Filtering. To isolate SPAM from the rest of your incoming mail, use the following RULE as your FIRST RULE entry: Check the 'Incoming' checkbox in the in the "NEW RULE" prep window and select/type the following entries: (if) "Status" (is) "Junk" perform the following ACTION: "Move Message" to Folder: "JUNK" (or whatever you want to call it).

I've been using GyazMail ever since I swtched to OS X, following every update. I find it way cooler than Eudora (which I used for about 6 years) and, of course, cooler than Apple's Mail. TIP: it lacks a spam tool, and SpamSiever still isn't compatible. Great app, anyhow.

Is it just me, or has development slowed to a crawl on this email client?. I bought this piece of software, and it is nice, but it still doesn't have the most basic of things that are found on the majority of email software today, and that is IMAP support. While it is a beautiful and functional piece of software, I sometimes feel as if the developer may have "taken the money and run".

No junk mail filter. Very limited rule set to choose from. Format message to a narrow column when using "reply" Ugly monospace default message display (you can customize, but would be nice to have a decent default) I tried that 'cause of the rave review, a few nice touches here and there but overall I fail to understand how this is superior to Mail.

Great mail agent but still needs features that are present in Apple's Mail.app, such as transparent support of S/MIME (signed/encrypted or both mails), IMAP support and geez make the quote character appearing in all the quoted lines (this will increase the lisibility). Once those included, i'll pay the (legitimate) fees.

Been using GyazMail for a long time now, and just get more impressed as time goes on... the thing just rarely crashes. Development seems to have slowed a bit, with some major features not in that I'd really like to see (GPG, iMap, spam filtering) but you can't knock the quality of what is there. There are a lot of niceties I'd really like to have in it, which I've included below. The wide-screen link goes to a page where I show some screen shots of gyazmail that I've messed with the nib file on to give it a wide screen mode. A delete thread command. This really speeds up going through larger lists, especially with the preview pane. Just make it command+option+delete or something. Don't update status icon with a delete icon whenever you remove a file. I guess if your machine is super slow it might be nice, but really, when you're deleting 100 messages having to wait for it to refresh is a drag. Apple did this with their finder recently for a nice speed boost. An empty all trashes command would be nice, as having to select all your mailboxes before you run the command is a drag. Allow the damn "end" & "home" keys to work in a message. For some reason, they dont seem to. Double clicking a seperator bar should collapse the side/bottom view, while remembering the current sizes when you expand again. Why show the horizontal scroll bar at all if nothing needs to scroll? Gyaz does this, both in the mailbox view and the folder view, for wasted space. A "hide/show preview pane" button for the toolbar would be nice. An undo command for more actions. IE, when you delete an item accidently, being able to hit "undo" and have it moved back would be a lot nicer than having to go to the trash, fish it out, and then moving it back. It'd be nice if the preview pane was smarter, and remembered its size depending on the folder. IE, in some mailboxes i don't get that many messages, so I'd want the preview pane to be larger. In others, I'd want it smaller to better keep track of threads. Ability to select "search within all folders" (or more customizable options) would be awesome without having to select all the folders. Please show quoting and formatting information while you're composing an email. If it is going to wrap, show where it will wrap! Showing colors for quoting makes things so much easier to follow and respond to while composing a message. I've requested this from the author, but never heard back. I don't understand why "new message" and is under the "Message" menu item instead of the "File" icon. Not a big deal, but I always have to look twice for it as it's not where I'd expect. Wide screen support! Alternating colored rows for threads. Very helpful for scannability. I suppose you could also give alternating rows as an option for individual messages too, ala iTunes. I'd wish the grid would just seperate out the messages themselves, not also the subjects and attachments... IE, horizontal lines, but not vertical lines. Add a global "take all offline" menu item, or key combo. Because really with how Gyaz is setup, if I don't want a bunch of error messages when I can't connect coming up I have to take it offline, which means selecting all the mailboxes. No reason why there can't be a global command. Option not to show messages in the trash as read, as it reduces scannability when looking for folders with unread mailboxes. Option to only check for new mail when you have an active internet connection, so I am not bombarded with can't connect messages. Consider throwing the can't connect messages into a single window, download-manager style. Having to hunt for them (I have a lot of mailboxes) is a drag. A global search option from within search mode. Having to select individual mailboxes is a chore when I don't know what folder or mailbox the message was in... If the mailbox with unread messages is not collapsed, don't highlight the mailbox itself as unread, it reduces scannability when looking for folders with unread messages. Add a "collapse all" and "expand all" option for the folder view. Better integration with the Address Book: especially in a wide screen mode, there's more space to pretty things up and perhaps snatch picture info, etc.

A terrific program. Much "snappier" than Apple's Mail and less buggy. I switched because Mail would never delete emails from the server properly. If I forced it to manually, I'd get hundreds of old messages next time! Gyazmail handles this perfectly. It's also better-looking (no annoying drawer, pleasant and clear icons), has instantaneous searching, and server-based filtering. It also lets you control how/if HTML email is displayed. Cons: No IMAP support, but it's planned. Rules are good but a bit basic (nothing's ever topped Entourage for that in my experience). No junk mail filter either (not a problem for me; I get very little spam. Apple's filter never worked anyway). I really recommend this program. It needs some more features, but it's excellent right now.
