    Can't say I'm surprised. If it's any help, here's my setup so far:

    iOS – Spark is an awesome replacement and owned by readdle so it should have some staying power for a bit. This app is easily my favorite iOS mail app since Mailbox, and I've tried a few.

    Mac – AirMail seems to be fairly solid. Been using it for a couple of years now without any real complaints. Pretty fast dev updates as well.

    Biggest thing for me when looking at a client is their support for other accounts besides gmail and icloud. Both of the above support any account including IMAP accounts.

      That's exactly my setup right now, and it works pretty well.

      I got AirMail when it first came out, but had to stop using it because it would fail to send emails to people now and again. I got a little worried that it would one day send an email to someone other than the person I intended it to go to.

      I also found that it had issues sending images. The recipient couldn't view the images at the other end.

      I'm considering trying it again, though.
