“Mail is Apple’s stock Mac OS X app for dealing with email. With Mail you can read, and reply to email messages. With Mail 7, Apple had to deal with a range of unwanted bugs, not least of which was troublesome beaviour between Mail and Gmail,” Lou Hattersley writes for Macworld. “These are all fixed now, and our Mail 7.2 review can focus on the program itself.”
“While there’s nothing fundamentally wrong with Mail, it has a reasonably slick interface and good search and Smart Mailbox functionality,” Hattersley writes. “But there seems to be a new breed of email client appearing, like Inky and Airmail that takes cues from social media apps (the Twitter client in particular). While Inky and Airmail also have flaws, they seem to have a modern take on what an email client should be. Apple’s Mail app (coming up to its third year without a major facelift) is starting to feel left behind.”
