Use­ful ex­tras

Ex­tra things that can make your mail sing

Mac Format - - RATED -

Air­mail is packed with good­ies: in­te­gra­tion with cloud file stor­age, HTML and Mark­down cod­ing, al­most in­fi­nite cus­tomi­sa­tion and more menu op­tions than you can shake a stick at. As you might ex­pect from a Mi­crosoft Of­fice app, Out­look does ev­ery­thing: there’s in­te­grated cal­en­dar, con­tacts, tasks and notes, and the abil­ity to for­ward emails to make meet­ings, plus cloud file sup­port. Thun­der­bird of­fers ex­ten­sions plus in­te­grated cal­en­dar and tasks too, plus news­group read­ing and chat, while Post­box of­fers ex­ten­sions that you can use to add cal­en­dars, to-do lists, meet­ing sched­ul­ing, ef­fort­less use of canned re­sponses, Mark­down and stacks of other fea­tures. It doesn’t have the sheer num­ber of ex­ten­sions that Thun­der­bird has, but the list is more fo­cussed and well worth ex­plor­ing.

Com­pared to the other apps here Mail­box doesn’t do much, but that’s de­lib­er­ate: it’s about spend­ing less time in email, rather than us­ing end­less fea­tures. Uni­box is sim­i­lar, em­pha­sis­ing ease of use over power tools for pros.

Post­box’s power fea­tures take time to learn but they’re well worth the ef­fort.
