The Mail app is one of those polarizing apps where people either really enjoy using it, while others want to set it on fire and erase it from existence.

Regardless of your view on the original Mail app, there have been plenty of other email-based app alternatives available for download… so have you ever tried something different? Why or why not?

I use Airmail and have been thinking about switching back to stock..


I use the stock mail app. I use just about all stock. Save for using pocketcasts for podcasts because it offers me a web interface. Why do I do it? Hmmm... I can't say for certain. I guess i became one of those "that's the way Apple intended" folks somewhere along the way


Because it's convenient for me and does what I want it to do. No need to use an other mail client.


So, what about you? We're chatting email, the Mail app, and more in the iMore forums!
