Editors' Review


Are you a Gmail user with a huge inbox and archive? Mailplane gives you desktop-app functionality with the security of keeping your mail safe on the gServers. Mailplane works just like Gmail, offering the same functionality you've come to expect online right on your Mac desktop.

Along with e-mail, you can continue to have conversations with friends, labels for easier sorting, global access to e-mail, spam protection, and more. But even better than the online client, Mailplane integrates seamlessly with iLife apps, so you can browse and attach photos from iPhoto and music from iTunes. Drag-and-drop support makes attachments quick and painless (even when dropping attachments directly into the body of a message), and extras like automatic photo optimization means you won't have to fuss with an image editor before sending a photo. You can also use Mailplane to read your mail offline, and you can switch between multiple rich text signatures. If you have Snow Leopard, Mailplane adds new service menu items that let you easily search your inbox and send messages while in other apps.

If you're a Gmail user, Mailplane is a great way to get more control over your e-mail.

"Just like GMAIL on the web, except in an application!"

January 04, 2010  |  By spaceace510

 |  Version: Mailplane 2.1.2


Just like using the website. Chat works. The best part is how easy switching accounts is. Once all the accounts are loaded and signed in, all you have to do is double click. Its super amazing. The notification in the menu bar is also great!


cost money


if you have $25 dollars (i think) and love GMAIL, it is an amazing purchase.
