okay for casual use

I’m not thrilled with the stock mail app on the macbook air (you do’t need to save 10,000 drafts every time I write an email) so I thought I’d try this out. It works like a phone app but on your desktop. It’s nice that it’s out of the way, especially if you are using Outlook on your machine for work, etc as your primary email. But if you have to actually craft a thoughtful or professional email, it’s not really designed for that.


Good Email app, very useful and happy that I downloaded it for my Mac book air.

works well

app works well, occassional message pops up for other services but too be expected for free, would recommend.
