What are Sparrow users changing to? Mailapp, Postbox, other?
.Mail is coming soon.
Postbox is excellent.
I use it across all platforms & the experience is stellar.
Too bad you didn't get many responses to your question. I think quite a few of us who jumped to Sparrow are looking for an alternative.
So it's not available for download anymore? I thought I still saw it in the App Store.

I'd say if you already purchased Sparrow that there's no reason to search out an alternative at this point. Sparrow is still fully functional and the best gmail based client out there. All the contenders are still half-baked at best.
If you haven't purchased it, I'd probably stick with mail and wait for some of these new apps to develop and separate themselves.
I'm sticking to Sparrow for now with my gmail. I only have the free version, but it's serving me fine at the moment. My other favourite is Thunderbird, which I'm already using for my work emails, so if/when I eventually let go of Sparrow I'll either integrate my gmail into Thunderbird, or go for Postbox.
By the way has support ended for Thunderbird as well??
I continue using Sparrow.
I like postbox, so if you're unhappy with the idea of google owning sparrow, then I suggest that app.
I continue to use Sparrow in OSX... works great in it's current form.
I'm using Thunderbird.
Not free, but Mail Pilot looks cool, espeically if you look to combine email with other social messaging.
I was just looking at Postbox's evernote integration, that's really useful.
You can really make your life easier by not using Gmail for starters.
Fastmail.fm is $40/year to use with your own domain.
Rackspace can be had for as little as $2/mo (you have to purchase 5 IMAP accounts for $10/mo, then contact their support to have it knocked down to only 1 IMAP account for $2/mo)
Then you can use any email client you want without having to use something specific to Google.
I personally use Postbox, but I can just as easily use Thunderbird or Mail.app.
I refuse to give Google access to my email for advertising. Scummy company, but if you choose to go the Google route your options are going to be more limited for a reliable email client.
Yes, Gmail is accessible via IMAP, but it changes certain key things about organization and deleting that drive me bonkers, personally.
Also, believe it or not, Entourage in the latest Office is actually a really good email client too.
You have the best signature I've seen in a while
I've purchased Postbox, it's really very nice. So are Sparrow and Thunderbird, but since they have both announced they won't be updating and Postbox offers Evernote integration, I think I'm moving over to that. Still testing it out, though.
