Absurdly good email app for mac. And free. I have tried all the free ones and all the free trials. Nothing suited me better than regular ole Gmail on the web. That being said, because I have no problem paying for a product I use and enjoy, I'd be glad to pay for this one if/when that time comes. My preference would be a one-time purchase instead of a monthly or yearly license, though! :)

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.

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.

The dark interface without transparency is coarse, it's almost only black and white, there are few shades, the fonts are too greasy and you can hardly distinguish unread emails !

Their iOS doesn't work with my Exchange account. Contacted their customer support. Had to send screenshots, logs and test results. Took them one week just to tell me that they are not able to open an xml file (!!!) and read the connectivity test results. After several more days, the conclusion was that the problem is not their app, but wrong account login details (never mind that the same account and login work in their own app on the Mac as well as in Spark, Apple Mail and Airmail on iOS.)

Thanks for your comment and for being a part of the MacUpdate Community!

It looks like the $10 version of the app is for iOS and the Mac version is $20. If we're still missing something here, please let us know and we can look at this again.
