If you’d told me I would be writing about the best email app for the Mac in 2018 when I was in college, I’d have thought you were crazy. For as far as technology has come in the last twenty years, e-mail is still essential to our workflows. We’ve got pocket computers on our wrists and smartphones with 4GB of RAM, but e-mail is still required to live and work in the internet era. If you’d asked me in 2002, I would have assumed something else would replace it.

E-mail, like calendars, is something that is very personal. Over the years, email has morphed from a way to send electronic letters to turning into the digital hub of all we do online. Your Facebook account is tied to an email. Your Amazon account is tied to an email. Everything is tied to your email.
Email accounts are also difficult to change. Once you have it signed up with multiple services, moving from it is like moving your physical address. I’ve seen this first hand when folks leave the school I work at. I usually give them a few days to tie everything up, but many of them have used it as a personal account for years despite my warnings not to, so it becomes a difficult transition.
Like Calendar apps, there are many email apps for iPhone. I’ve tried and used just about all of them over the years. One of the questions people often ask me is: what’s your favorite email app for iPhone?
