Airmail 3 for Mac brings smart folders, VIPs with iCloud sync, send later, more

Airmail 3

After recently launching on the iPad, Airmail is back today with a free 3.0 update to the Mac version. The latest version adds a long list of features and improvements including smart folders for sorting out your email easier, VIP support for marking specific contacts, and much more.

Starting with Airmail 3, you can turn off new message alerts for all senders except VIP contacts just like on Airmail for iOS, and iCloud sync supports VIPs as well so you can set up your favorites on one device and have the rules apply on all your devices. iCloud sync also applies to smart folders and rules created in Airmail on any version now.

Gmail and Exchange users can now enjoy a new ‘send later’ option when composing new emails, and Gmail users also gain Primary Inbox support. Airmail 3 includes even more customization now too: you can now tweak menus, gestures, keyboard shortcuts, and folders, plus Airmail also featured plenty of personalization options.
