It doesn't take much work to hate email. If ever there was a killer app, it is email; The app from the gods over who loves to kill people with tedium and frustration. Why? Isn't email as a subtitle?
Yes. And no. Email clutters our lives; a massive time sucks that will drive humanity crazy until just before the gods destroy us. Subtitles are a necessary evil. Totally different, right? No matter where you stand in the email vs. subtitling wars (it's really nothing, I've just done it up), here are the top three e-mail programs for Mac, iPhone and iPad.
Standard Mail is OK  Without a flame of scientific research to back up my claim, most Mac, iPhone and iPad users are likely to have tried Apple's printed and true Mail app. With a remarkable exception, Mail works. It is functionally packed, and on Mac, you control folder organization and spam, thanks to the built-in spam feature.
If you use Mail, good for you. Mail is traditional email; e-mail administration from 1
What's Better Than Mail? Well, I could then leave emails completely and I would be right. No email is better than email, which means no email is better than Mail, but we live in the real world and not message fantasyland, so what are the good options.
There are two. They are something similar, but their approach to managing email is different and you choose it depends on your requirements.
Airmail – this one has been around for some years and has been matured to be a good mix of features and usability. Air Mail does not look or feel like Mail, and offers message management controls better than Mail. While airmail is easy to set up and use, the comprehensive features and account and message options are layered in; Available as you need them and as your experience expands.
For example, Luftmail keeps accounts managed and synchronized between Mac, iPhone and iPad via iCloud, and if you use IMAP stores, the folders on your email account server are as God thought. Inbox is united. Airmail supports Exchange, iCloud, IMAP, POP, Yahoo !, Google, and even Outlook.com accounts. It also works with Handoff so you can start a message on the iPad and get to it on Mac later. Attachments can be stored on GoogleDrive, Dropbox, OneDrive and elsewhere. Messages can be set per account.
The murder function for Airmail is support for Spam Sieve. Set it up on your Mac and it keeps spam on your iPhone and iPad. Airmail has a nominal price tag.
Spark – other than the lack of Spam Sieve support, Spark is my favorite email app. Why? User interface. It's just faster and easier to manage a massive amount of Spark messages than in Mail. It also syncs with iCloud so it works on Mac, iPhone and iPad (and better on Se than Airmail or Mail). Organizing messages is not as extensive as Mail or Airmail, but good for most of us.

That's right, Spark lets you send messages at a later time or a date. It's true that Spark has what you can't find in any of the other two, is an option to send later.
It integrates well with all sharing box options in macOS or iOS, but also has smart notifications and a smart inbox that distinguishes the useless from the useful messages.
All three email programs are worthy – Mail, Airmail, Spark. The latter two synchronize the accounts via iCloud, making them easy to set up on each device. The entry is free. Airmail has a nominal price tag. Spark – for now – is free, but I'm waiting for the shoe to escape in the future. Only email and airmail are working on SpamSieve on Mac.
Which of the three should you use? It depends on. Mail is good for a few accounts and has junk mail built in, but also works with SpamSieve. Luftpost has several management features and options, but comes with a price tag and SpamSieve support. Sparkling is the easiest to set up and use.
