Favorite third-party mail app for Mac: Mailbox

Today over at The Sweet Setup, I survey the field of Mac mail clients in search of a replacement for Apple Mail.

For most people who use iCloud mail or Gmail, we recommend Mailbox. Its easy swipe gestures to file or defer mail can help you keep your inbox manageable without losing track of important messages, and its companion mobile app allows you to extend that philosophy to all your devices.

There are a lot of interesting choices as alternatives to Apple Mail. The good news is, the wide variety means that even if you have some very specific needs, there’s probably a good alternative waiting for you if it’s time to give Mail the boot.
