The “detail” that pushed me away from Airmail was its inability to consistently show me the content of an email. Seems like a fairly important detail.
Whelp!! I’ll never get close to even 10% of that number, but it’s pretty hard to beat Gmail’s rules. My list of rules has grown and shrunk again over the years. Mostly the shrinkage is when I decide that rather than filing a specific type of email I’m better off just never receiving it.
But while I love the immediacy of the web interface (think about that for a moment!) and can’t stand* using Mail, I’ve become a convert to the new Mimestream which combines the best of both. There are many features it does not have yet, but at the rate they’re developing it, I expect Google will be taking features from Mimestream before long!
*The one feature that any mail client must have before I will consider using it is the ability to delete, archive, or close any email without opening another. Mail continues to fail on this basic task. It amazes me that any mail client should ship without this as an option. We’re not all GTD junkies.
