“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,” Jack Zimmermann writes for JackenHack. “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.”
“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 [introductory price: $1.99],” Zimmermann writes. “Airmail is fast. I mean, really fast! I just bought a new MacBook Pro 15″ Retina with a 2.5Ghz Intel i7, so it’s probably not the best computer to pass any judgement on the speed of an application, but my computer at work is a three year old MacBook Pro and Airmail feels very fast on that machine as well.”
