Airmail for Mac is an alternative to the Apple Mail app that allows you to link all of your email accounts, so you can keep everything organized and in one place. You can receive, view, compose, and send messages, all through this program's intuitive interface.
Nice interface: When you open this app, you'll see three main panels that make up the basic organizational structure of the program. The far left contains boxes and categories that you can use to sort your messages for easier retrieval later on. The middle column displays the contents of the selected category, and the far right panel holds the selected message body. Tools arranged across the top of the interface allow you to compose new messages, reply to existing ones, and more.
Direct saving: One nice feature is the ability to save attachments directly to your computer. All you have to do is click the button that displays below any message containing an attachment, select the destination folder, and you're done.
Message marking options: To help you stay organized, this app also includes a lot of handy marking tools to use on your messages. There is the star, of course, but you can also choose from a variety of different colored flags, or mark certain messages unread, so you remember to go back to them later on.
Some bugs: During testing, we did encounter some difficulty with messages that would disappear for no discernible reason. We could still find them by logging into the Web-based mail program they were sent to, but that was an extra hassle that makes Airmail much less reliable.
Airmail for Mac is a nicely laid-out and feature-packed mail application that offers a lot, considering its $1.99 price tag. The reliability issues make it hard to depend on this program, which can negate a lot of the value. But hopefully they'll be resolved soon, and the app can realize its full potential.
