Email Apps: 1. Superhuman 2. MailMate 3. Mail Pilot 4. Mail Butler 5. Newton


#1

Any thoughts on these 5 email apps?


#2
  1. Superhuman - I did not try it, but it seems like many other apps.
  2. Mailmate - Best client in my opinion (if you do not want to play around with it, stick with Mail.app).
  3. Mail Pilot - Looks promising.
  4. Mail Butler - Expensive and not reliable.
  5. Newton - Expensive and they do not care about your privacy.

I used Newton until they pulled the plug. Not going back as I don’t consider them reliable now.
I use MailMate and like the markdown editing, commands to send things to DEVONthink, OmniFocus, etc. I also tag things, and have the tags in the menu bar, making it easy. I is SpamSieve to take care of the spam. All in all a good investment in the two of them.
I use AirMail on iOS.

Just curious. Is there a particular reason you don’t use Airmail on Mac? I use it on both OSs, but I’m always “in the market” for something better.

Ack! I can’t remember. I own it on macOS too, but can’t recall why I looked elsewhere and went to MailMate. Could have been the iOS-style interface, but not sure. Could also be that I was enamored with their use of markdown at the time. If it comes to me, I’ll post.

I have been using MailMate with 4 EMail accounts. Searching is a breeze. Lots of customizations. Lots of control on Rules, Tags, Productivity integrations, Archive, Spam Control with Spamsieve and very robust.


#7

I used Airmail but got fed up with their half-ass integrations (e.g. Devonthink), which sometimes do not even work (like GPG). It seems like they do not have the manpower to realize their grandiose plans.


#8

And what are you using?


#9

MailMate :slight_smile: I was also thinking about eM Client but went for MailMate due to its integrations and power usage.

Thanks.
MailMate is a little more power than I need. I used EM Client on Windows a couple of years ago (when I had to use Windows) and was pretty happy with it. I didn’t realize they made a Mac version. Will have to look into it.
