Of course I can't speak for everyone but it seems to me that social networks and text messages are where most human-to-human communication is done nowadays. This could have been a good concept 10 years ago.
Sometimes email is the right medium, sometimes not. I have conversations with people across various media (email, texts, Facebook messages, the occasional Twitter DM).

What I'd like is a single app or system or something that can work across multiple streams so that you click on a contact and see everything from that person, regardless of how it was sent.

Not bad

Downloaded the Beta, while not perfect it is kind of fun. Like the easy reply. I will use for a few days to see. Definitely only for personal e-mail, not suited for work if you live on e-mail.

Not really, It great for large group of contacts, but I normally work with email based on who it's from.

I started using Unibox, and I love it. It is a really sexy mail client, and I am gonna continue using it.

Not really a fan of Airmail. It seemed cluttered to me, but again, this is just me.

for me, managing multiple accounts is much easier, because the UIs are independent. also the overall UI is less cluttered and i like to see my contact pictures, it humanizes the all experience. it has other neat stuff like "memos", "todos", and integrates well with drive, dropbox and other services. also the price is very low. the list goes on.
sure it doesn't have some features like rules like app mail but it's a matter of time.
check and try for yourself http://airmailapp.com/

I use Mail.app with three IMAP-based email providers.

I use server-side automated filtering to subfolders for the majority of my email, because it makes organization much easier. (Right this moment, I have one email in all three inboxes combined. It arrived after I started writing this post, and is spam. Alright, my inbox is now empty.)

I greatly prefer having my email sorted by "type" (for work, I have dozens of subfolders for different reasons, for personal, I have general categories like "commercial", "community", "family", "school", etc.) Within that, I use group-by-conversation, and sort by date.

What was wrong with the last version of Sparrow? I'm still using it. I don't plan on switching unless something awesome comes around.

Thanks I picked it up (Honestly $2 I'm not going to cry if it doesn't work out) and so far so good. Took me a few minutes to figure out how to sort emails but this is definitely the closest thing to my beloved Sparrow. Thanks for the tip.

Also colors. I know this sounds petty but I absolutely hate the monotone/grey UI of the modern finder and Mail apps.

I tried it for a while, and now I'm back to the built in mail app.

Does it support mail threads? Without that, we cannot really use in a business environment as emails may have multiple people involved.

Anyway, mail.app is the only email client I'm using on Mac. It works fine for me since 2007 when I started using Mac. Just the vanilla app. No plugins.
