    So i've heard sparrow is dead now - what else is there for gmail? I'm sick of their web interface - its awful. But Mail.app seems clunky and doesn't give me the best feature of gmail - the "send and archive" button, allowing me to keep my inbox clean and tidy easily.

    Any other suggestions? Or plugins that fix Mail.app?

    Stick with sparrow for a little while longer, then move back to the default mac mail. Shouldn't hvae to pay $10 for a mail app.

    Sparrow isn't dead, they just pushed out some bugfixes. There will be no new features, but it's not dead. I still use it and it's as great as ever. Just because Google bought it doesn't mean that you have to jump the ship.

    wow, sparrow isn't dead - and it's all i'll ever want from my email client.

    I have tried:
    Entourage + Outlook
    Apple Mail
    Postbox
    mailplane
    +
    thunderbird

    Sparrow is by far the best for me and I would think most others too.

    It's cheap, lite, runs in the menubar...

    there is a lite version with adds available for you to try out too.

    Sparrow is not dead.
