    I use it for Gmail, iCloud and work. Works seamlessly. I bounced back and forth with the Gmail app for a while but mail.app eventually won because of integration with iOS.

    Default app because we can't hide them and it drives me crazy to have more than one app for the same thing lol

    I always download new mail apps to try it out but due to the stock's convenience with integration, I always come back.

    I don't use Mail.

    Like most users, I did initially used it considering how simple it looked, but then soon realise how functionally handicapped it was compared to 3rd party apps.

    Most mail apps nowadays, preview the most recent conversation, so you don't even have to open the email to know the latest status. If your reply to an email happens to be the latest in the thread, it can be viewed in the preview. On tapping an email, the entire conversation can be viewed, including the sent emails. Coming to the default Mail app, the conversation list does not even include sent messages. To view the sent messages, you have to go search for it in the sent items folder, a hassle, esp when you are short of time and you want to view the full email trail. Including both incoming and sent emails in the conversation is a basic feature in most 3rd party apps. Just an example of where Mail is compared to other apps.

    I've been using the stock mail app on both my MacBook and iPhone for gmail, Microsoft exchange. Except for slow load times on my Mac it's pretty smooth.

    <-- another stock mail app user right here.

    It works fantastic with my Gmail, Live, and iCloud accounts, and I don't want to mess with juggling mail apps (as Apple only allows its stock mail app to be the mail default).

    I have a total of six email accounts. All but one I use the stock mail app regularly for. Gmail I use the official app, but I also use the stock app on occasion.

    ^^^ This.

    Plus, I tried CloudMagic and Spark; even though they both have a few features that native mail doesn't have, they just don't seem to work as smoothly in one way or another. But not being able to delete the native client has pretty much also ended any further searching. Native app just works good 'nuff.

    Well I have downloaded all the mail apps. I stopped using stock because I'm not getting all my mail via push. They are only syncing when I open the stock mail app. ESPECIALLY when it's in a sub folder. I'm going to try this for a while, see how it works!

    If only Gmail had push. I could use stock for my work email. I can set that account up as an Exchange account. But then I'd be using two different email apps for work and personal email, and I hate that.

    I'm now using CloudMagic. I think it's pretty fantastic. I keep my accounts also set up in the stock Mail app for sending emails from other apps and what not.

    I wish I could use the stock email app. I like to keep things as simple as possible.

    I use it for my work email, but for gmail I use the gmail app, set only to alert on primary. I do leave my gmail account in mail settings for sharing since I can't pick gmail as default. I just turn off all notifications and any fetch for it.

    I tried to use it for Gmail and I actually liked it alot. But no push email = no go. Currently using cloud magic. If apple was to allow push for Gmail, I would happily use the native app.

    It's actually Google who stopped offering it, not Apple.

    Ok I now all my push email works. I've not missed a single email! iCloud still uses native email app. But all my other accounts use their corresponding app. Everything works and all emails come through via push and work fantastic. I am not going back to native email!

    Native mail app does what I need. Excellent work with Microsoft Exchange and so no need third party app for that.
