Airmail, my new favourite mail client
After Mac OS X 10.8, Apple Mail has been going downhill by every update. It’s weird because the iOS Mail app is rock solid. I have my email domain on Google Apps and I know that Gmail doesn’t follow the IMAP standard, instead choosing to do it their own way. So they use tags instead of folders, etc. I guess some of the blame has to be put upon Google for not following standards, but being a large player, you can pretty much set your own roles. Anyway, Apple Mail has become a slow, unreliable application although they have fixed some of the more serious problems in the latest release. For the first time in many years, I was on the lookout for a new email client software.
Time to find a new Mail Client
I wanted to be able to have both of my private and work email accounts in the same program, but have them totally separate to make life easier, and after searching the net I found an application called Airmail. The feature list is comprehensive to the point of me not wanting to list all the features here, but follow the link to get a lowdown on all the things the application can do. I’ll just go through the things that persuaded me to switch.
