i have been playing with airmail on both the mac and iPhone and iPad - i am beginning to appreciate airmail a lot more than apple mail. With every release of OS - apple is dumbing down the app - so i had no choice but to begin looking else where.. I also hear spark is good but never tried it.

Apple Mail.app suits my use well enough that I am not going to spend money on anything else.

if you like airmail on Facebook they give you free coupons for the App Store
so actually it was free both the iPhone app and desktop app..

I really don't care if it's free.

Mail.app does what I need, and that is the point.

I don't FaceBook so that connection is of dubious value.

These third party mail efforts come and go. I'm not interested in learning something that could be gone tomorrow.

Perhaps more germain, of my many Mac clients, some very experienced, not a single one uses, or has ever asked about, alternative email applications.

airmail v3 is not going to disappear - they just won an award at wwdc
- apple mail is fine but with each revision it is dying a slow death..

That says a lot for a built in mail client. It generally meets my needs.

I have tried airmail and postbox, and they had some really slick features. But nothing so important or life changing that I didn't wind up just firing up mail.app. I take that back, I miss the "add to calendar" and "add to-do" from airmail... you know features that Apple removed from mail.app.

This. In spades.

(I do use Facebook a bit but never the twain shall meet.)

my point exactly - apple is attempting to merge MacOS with iOS and in the process of damaging many accolades i was used to enjoying by being a mac user.
