I found the perfect email app (and it is free)

I got my MacBook broken so I had to reinstall the whole system. I thought it is a good opportunity to review the software stack I use daily. I'm already digging VScode (previously IDEA) and iTerm (previously built-in IDEA terminal).

But what was the biggest surprise is an email client I've chosen.
For the record: I have 6 inboxes and I need to combine them into a single stream. Previously I used Mozilla Thunderbird, but it was kinda clumsy.

Now I started using default OSX mail client and I can't be happier with its clean UI and flexibility. And the most important, the native extra smooth experience.
Exactly what I needed!

So if you are looking for a solid email client, perhaps you already have it 😄

    I’ve recently switched from the default OSX client to Spark, which has a much nicer UX, especially on mobile.

      Same, love Spark! so great for multiple inboxes

      Update: Spark works much smoother on OSX. I fell in love with it. Thanks!

      I could not deal with their 30-60 sec initial lag when opening a new message :( Spark is heavenly beautiful but also slow to me.

    It's not my favourite in the area of UI, but it's my best experience after testing Mail, Thunderbird, postbox, Airmail and many more: MailMate.

    Two years using Spark both on Mac and iOS, I recommend it!

      spark is awesome. On iOS too, it's great.

      I was using Superhuman for 6 months and then cancelled it and moved to Spark. It's much better.
