    I've been a longtime mac mail user on my various iMacs, MacBooks and MacBook Pros through the years. It has never let me down... however, since the update to Mavericks, I've noticed some quirkiness and general slow down.

    Was curious, what email client do YOU use on your Mac? What would you recommend to someone looking for the best email experience?

    I still use Mail. In my pre-OS X days (Windows), I was a huge Eudora fan... but alas, Eudora now sleeps with the fishes... I also used Outlook (MS Office Suite) for a time on Windows, but haven’t even considered it on my Mac - even though I have a copy of Office that included Outlook.

    Despite a few quirks, OS X Mail serves me well.

    This is an exact mirror of my experience. In regard to Eudora, that was the king of email programs back in the day. ...

    Although the mail app seems to work ok, I didn't really like it for some strange reason so I started looking out there and found Airmail which works excellent, I like it very much, very customizable and feature complete but easy to use as well. You should check it out, you can download the beta as a "try out" and then buy it if you like it for only $2.99

    I like unibox. It makes your email look like conversations by using chat bubbles.

    I bounce between Sparrow and AirMail, though Sparrow is pretty much on its last legs IMO.

    Most of my email activity is done on the web or on my iDevices, but after iMuggle's profession of love for Airmail, I gave it a shot. I still mainly use the web or iDevices (except for work where we use Windows/Exchange/Outlook), but Airmail is the only email client I fire up on my Mac any more.

    Does anyone use AirMail with a Comcast email account?

    I have it working with iCloud but need the config settings for Comcast.

    AirMail support told me to contact Comcast, and if you have any experience with CC support it isn't always a pleasant experience.

    I found Comcast email settings here. I'm not a Comcast customer, so I can't say if these settings are accurate. Good luck.

    Anyone interested in something new and different, try Mail Pilot. Right now it's in public beta, so you can download it for free.

    I just bought Mail Pilot for the Mac and for iOS. I've been using Sparrow for the longest time but unfortunately I don't see the most innovative company in the history of the world (Google) doing anymore innovating on this app. Don't even get me started on that topic...

    I kinda like how the built in email client works and the way it organizes my mail. It is also pretty dense in terms of information so I really just use that.

    People who use AIRMAIL have you guys also noticed this, that AIRMAIL though however efficient it may be, it still has some lag in recieving mails. I mean just as a Test I tried to send myself a Test Mail and it came to my mailbox from a different email account Gmail to Yahoo after 10-15 Minutes. So this Pushmail isnt instant (Versus what it is supposed to be) is the Pushmail not suppossed to be instant ? I can see the Yahoo webmail had recieved that mail but the AIRMAIL Push service had only sent a alert after 10-15 minutes. Has anyone else noticed that ?

    Airmail is perfect for me. I like it's interface and design. Also it is very convenient and easy to use. This combination of qualities rarely found together. That's why Airmail is my choice.

    I've been using Altamail for the last days & absolutely love it. By far the best mail client in iOS, and I've tried quite a few.

    Since this MacBook Air is my first Mac, I've been using Mail since iCloud configured that by default. I installed Office 2011 for Mac but saw that iCloud doesn't support it and doesn't look like it will at any point in the future which sucks. I use Outlook on my primary laptop so it would've been nice to have Outlook working on my Air as well.

    Same here. I wish Google would do the right thing with Sparrow, but Airmail is a pretty good replacement. They're also working on an iPad & iPhone version with Continuity in mind.

    Use the built in mail. Microsoft Exchange emails works well with the built-in mail app, so no need for other email apps for me
