Poll: Which desktop email app do you use?

    Good ol' Mail.app. Lately, I've tried:

    • Unibox
    • Airmail
    • Polymail
    • Postbox

    And I'm on the Superhuman beta wait list. But I keep coming back to (and mostly love) Mail.app because:

    • I don't want "smart" inbox management. I want the dumbest, fastest, most flexible possible app
    • I can map keyboard shortcuts to the folders I use most
    • UI aesthetic is boring, but stable, traditional, and frankly still quite pleasing
    • Supports everything (POP, IMAP, Google, Exchange, etc.)
    • Easy to set up & use
    • Filtering / rules
    • macOS system integration

    Honestly, if I had better typographic control over display, I'd have virtually no complaints. Email is mostly / primarily a text reading task, and yet I have less control than the Notes.app. The fact that I can't increase the size of the text in the central source column is criminal.
