    Hello friends.
    I am looking for an email client that is better than Mail (for both Mac OS and iOs devices). I read about Sparrow (now owned by Goog), is it any good?

    I suppose I should mention this handy article

    What is it you want from an email client that Mail is not providing? When I first switched to Mac, one of the first things I installed was Mozilla's Thunderbird email client. But Mail has improved a lot, and is every bit as good now.

    There is that one little pesky bug in Mail for Mountain Lion... where if you use rules to move mail from the inbox to a folder (or move the mail manually), when you reply, the replies come from the default address within Mail, and not necessarily the email address to which the original message was sent.

    I set up all my rules server side. Why would you do it at the client side?

    POP3 mail accounts don’t support server side rules...

    Um, yeah... over half of my email accounts are POP3. Sad fact of life.

    Even major Internet service providers like Verizon FIOS only offer pop3.

    Which is why I have gmail pull all my Verizon email into my gmail account.

    I know Comcast has only ever offered pop3. Of course, I've always recommended people not use their carrier email so that when they get annoyed with the speed of their ISP and want to change, or move and can't get their old ISP, they have a reliable email.

    The majority of the POP3 accounts are not under my control to port - stuff like non-profits that I assist - I need email accounts that they provide for communications... so I am sort of stuck.

    Generally I like Mail, but as some are contending here, it isn't perfect. I was just wondering if there's such an email client that rises above all, kinda like a SupermanMail or a WonderwomanMail, or better yet: a Bugs-bunnyMail...

    there's been some talk about this one: .Mail is coming to your dock and we would love to have you on board. from the design point of vew very promissing; some good ideas for mail and process organization as well.
    problem - there doesn't seem much to be happening on the development side, but hopes have been high for a while.
