Of all the questions I’ve gotten over the 10 years I was with Apple, the most consistent questions and/or tech support issues came from email. Managing email is the new daily headache of the 21st century. It can be confusing, enlightening, and maddening all at once. Luckily, our smart phones and computers have resources to help ease our headaches with email mail management apps. I can speak to the ease of use of Spark and AirMail, but the others in this list were new to me. I think if any of these apps can help ease your email pains, they’re worth trying out.
