Which mail app for the Mac is the best? | Technology | Scoop.it
We tested a bumper crop of contenders to find the best e-mail offering for your needs.

Top choice: Postbox 3

 

 

Postbox 3 () isn’t the newest or sleekest candidate in this roundup. Its design hews more closely to the traditional Mac look and feel, rather than adopting a slick iOS-like appearance. But for $10, it combines reliable performance, smart design, and a wide array of impressive features that make the program feel like what Apple Mail ought to be.
