I was never a fan of email clients. When I was 13 years old I had just learned HTML and was really getting into computers. Things were going well until I tried to learn how to use Microsoft Outlook. SMTP servers? POP3, IMAP? Wah? Well today I know all about that stuff but have been using webmail anyway even though I have a perfectly good mail application in Apple’s Mail.
So to be as efficient as possible and as not to neglect any app on my hard drive (I’m notorious for keeping track of which of my apps I use frequently, how useful each app is, etc. and deleting any app that is no longer necessary or has a more attractive alternative) I began using Mail.app. Its a great app. I don’t really see anything wrong with it but I can see how some people would. I may or may not be in the same boat as them. I’m trying to figure out if Apple’s Mail is the best email client for me. To help me decide I checked out three other email clients; Unblab, Postbox, and Thunderbird and here is the verdict.
