MailMate is an ambitious powerful email client for Mac OS X. It is designed for and only supports IMAP while still working in full when offline. MailMate has state-of-the-art searching capabilities and correspondingly advanced smart mailboxes. Extensive keyboard control and dynamic signatures ensure a highly efficient workflow when reading and answering emails. Alternative message viewer layouts and a browser-inspired design ensure easy and rapid access to related messages.
What is new in this release:
- This public release is the first release compatible with El Capitan. An especially noteworthy new feature is the inclusion of a Spotlight importer. This can be enabled in the General preferences pane and it'll allow users to search MailMate emails using Spotlight. It'll also allow searching email files saved elsewhere. The Spotlight support also means better integration with BusyCal thanks to the nice people at BusyMac.
What is new in version 1.9:
- Bundles preferences pane which allows you to enable/disable integration with various applications. Currently, 19 bundles exist providing support for BBEdit, BusyCal, Due, EagleFiler, Evernote, OmniFocus, TextMate, Todoist, and more.
- Rules pane in the mailbox editor for any mailbox.
- Toolbar search field activated using ??F. Note the search field menu and its options.
- Correspondent/Identity added as special header transformations. This is, e.g., used for the new "Correspondent" column available for the messages outline.
- Each tag can be assigned an emoji and a new tags column can be used to display them. Note that ??+space opens an emoji keyboard on Yosemite.
- Enable composer header fields by holding down ? when hitting Return. For example, hit ?? to add a "Cc" header when focus is in the "To" header.
- Numerous other new features, changes, and fixes. You really do need to read the release notes to know it all.
- MailMate should now work with even more buggy IMAP servers than it already did. Remember, good alternatives do exist.
What is new in version 1.8:
- New: Redirection of a message using "Message ? Redirect" (??E) or the redirectMessage: key binding. This opens a special composer window which only allows editing a fixed set of headers. MailMate also adds a $Redirected flag to any redirected messages.
- New: Support for using an external editor to write emails (TextMate, Sublime Text, MacVim).
- New: HTML signatures can be configured in the Signature preferences pane. They work in both plain text and Markdown mode. (More details in the manual.)
- New: Remove search items using context sensitive menu (right-click) or by holding down the option key (?) when left-clicking.
- New: "Redirect" and "Export to Folder" are now available as rule actions.
- New: "Default Downloads Folder" option in the General preferences pane.
