Crap. I absolutely adored Mailbox; it did everything I wanted, but especially:

1) The ability to snooze emails

2) A really nice UI on both OS X and Android letting me quickly swipe emails to archive or snooze them.

3) A unified inbox that showed multiple email accounts as a single inbox.

Does anyone have any suggestions for a mail client that meets these requirements? I'm quite happy to pay.

Edit: Google Inbox doesn't have a unified inbox, which drives me nuts, and nothing else I know of has message snoozing. ANY suggestions welcomed.




Outlook. Seriously. It supports multiple accounts I believe (I only use my work exchange account so not positive), and it has scheduling of messages. The scheduling hasn't synced very well to the desktop version in my experience, but a lot of people have called it the best gmail client on iOS.


Well, I guess it's worth a shot.

Although my primary OS for dealing with email is OS X and I see the OS X app is $130? Acceptable for a good Mailbox replacement, but a bit pricy for a gamble. :(

And "The scheduling hasn't synced very well to the desktop version in my experience" worries me a lot.


He means the Outlook iOS/Android app, which was a 3rd party app Microsoft bought (Accompli) and further upgraded by the people at Sunrise Calendar (also bought out) to make the app that it is today. Outlook for OSX, though, is still the classic Microsoft Office for OSX app, so it doesn't have any of those upgrades. The iOS app is my daily driver, and it works splendidly.


>nothing else I know of has message snoozing. ANY suggestions welcomed.

The new Outlook mobile apps support scheduling for later. I don't think it's as nice as Mailbox was (with multiple choices for when to schedule) but it's the closest thing I know of.


Airmail doesn't support snoozing, but it does have a unified inbox and nice UI. IMO it's a bit overloaded with power and features, but it's worth consideration.

Another commenter pointed out that you can try/use the full version for free in their beta program.


I loved it too. Cloud Magic on Android comes close.
