Apple has announced that their upcoming Mac OS X 10.7 Lion will include an all new Mail application and it looks just like the one you can find on an iPad. A new mail bar is also present with easier access to some new tools. The new Mail.app also works with the new full-screen feature in Lion, and we have to say that it looks pretty awesome.
Just like Mail on iPad, Mail 5 in Mac OS X Lion features a new layout that takes advantage of the widescreen display on your Mac. You see the messages in your inbox as well as a full-height preview of the selected message. The new Mailbox bar gives you one-click access to your favorite folders. Mail 5 also includes a powerful new way to search that makes finding what you’re looking for quick and easy, even in the largest of inboxes.
Mail 5 also brings a new “Conversations” feature to the Mac. This feature organizes your inbox to be more natural and the concept looks remarkable.
Mail 5 also introduces Conversations, a natural new way to read and manage email that automatically groups messages from the same conversation — even if the subject changes along the way. Just click a conversation in your inbox to reveal a streamlined feed of individual messages in chronological order, and easily file or delete an entire conversation.
