Which email client do you use?
Posted by: mattkime

I realize that I've grown quite reliant on Gmail as my email client. I think I prefer protonmail for free email accounts but I'll still forward to a Gmail account.

I wonder how other people are handling this. I'm sure some of you use Mail and others might just use whatever offered by your email provider.

I'd rather not be so tied to the google ecosystem. Allowing several gig of email to pile up in a given account essentially creates an anchor to stop you from moving your data to another account.

Maybe I just need to make a clean break. I did that a number of years ago before I purchased my domain. Or maybe I should challenge myself to delete a gigabyte of email a day so I'm down to something manageable in a week.

@#$%&, my google voice account is tied to my google workspace account. Ug, one step at a time.

I use Mail and migadu.com. I'm the master of my domain.

We still rely on Gmail for my wife's business and three other email accounts. When we started using Gmail it seemed like the logical choice because we had to do something that we could carry on with when changing IP's, before Spectrum was RoadRunner and we had everything setup with them as far as email. Now I kinda wish had gone with something else but I'm not sure what. We use Apple Mail to access Gmail accounts and rarely ever visit Gmail through a browser.

OT: My wife and I both made DuckDuckGo our default search engine and neither of us miss Google at all as far as a search engine. Tried DogPile again but didn't care for the search results.

Not sure if you're asking how to access through Mail, or not. If you are, just add an account, choose gmail as type, and it will lead you through log in. Same on iPhone / ipad.

Matt,

Are you talking email provider or email client (for accessing mail)? I read your post and it comes across as mix of both. I use Fastmail and GMail as email providers. Both are rock solid and work well with my preferred email clients. They both have good webmail interfaces for the rare time I need to use it.

For accessing email on my machines, I use Apple Mail and Postbox as email clients. Both work well, though I can’t speak about Apple Mail under Catalina or newer. I’m running it under Mojave. Postbox is the only 3rd party email client I’ve found as a viable Alternative to Apple Mail.

At hime, I use Apple Mail for personal email and Postbox for business email. At work Apple mail for business mail and Postbox for personal mail. Easiest way to keep personal and business email separate. Makes for a very good system all-around.

One a year or so, I download all of the content from both providers in MBox format. Once a year, I use Email Archiver to slurp content from both providers and covert the individual emails into PDF files.

I’ve been using the Mail.app for decades now.
Mail provider is iCloud, and I’ve had a hotmail account in it too, mainly to copy mail into iCloud for archival purposes.
Rock solid.

I've tried virtually every email client since the days of Claris Em@iler and QuickMail, and I always come back to Apple's own Mail.app since the beginnings of OS X.

Some add-ons from SmallCubed (notably the simpler filing options and the ability to set when a message is sent) make it pretty perfect for me.

The only client I really gave serious time to was Unibox -- I liked the sort-by-sender layout -- but it's long since become abandonware.

For gmail - Mail app on iPhone, web browser on Mac.

For ISP's email - Mail.app on Mac, rarely, if ever access it on my iPhone.

For as long as it has been available we have used Apple mail and Apple‘s email client. Their spam protection is abysmal though. I purchased a program called spam sieve to fill that gap and it does a very nice job.

Loved Eudora. Why I went to Postbox. Was best replacement at the time.

What's "email"...?

Is it like a lawyer with clients?

Apple Mail for both my Mac and my iPhone. Both accessing various Gmail accounts. Never really had any of the interface or whatever issues some have reported. My only annoyance is that updating email on the iPhone has always been random, whereas it’s always current on the Mac. I keep my iPhone to not auto-update I’m the background, so that’s part of it, but it should fetch emails when I’m in the app and it seldom does immediately.

At work they give us an MS account and Outlook on a PC laptop. It’s essentially flawless.
