I am finally fed up with mac mail I keep running into issues and I want more features.

I am looking for an email client that is ideally cross-platform but mac and iOS is ok too. Has options to snooze emails for short periods or time (<24hrs) and remind me about emails in the future. for example with gift ideas if I think of a gift idea 6 months ahead of time I would like an email reminder maybe a week before the event so I can order it in time.

The lower the price the better unless there will be awesome value.

CloudMagic is the only option I could find. Any other options are welcomed.

Ever thought about trying Thunderbird?

How safe are third party mail apps are in terms of security ?

I've always wanted to try one out but wasn't too crazy about the idea of giving a third party app my email log in info.

You can always use the SSL option to encrypt the communication between your email provider and your system. In terms, of actually trusting the email app itself enough to give it your login info, that's up to you. I've never had an issue with third party email clients, but I also haven't used that many of them.

I do not give a third party my login info. Most will give you a oauth token/app specific password.
I know gmail & outlook do. You can revoke access anytime. I use Airmail for personal stuff and
Mail for business with no problems. Thunderbird works fine but no iOS app available.

I use Cloudmagic and it's my favorite but I will be beta testinG Spark for Mac once it is released. But Cloudmagic is my go to. I have switched to Mac Mail, Airmail, Polymail, but I always find myself back at Cloudmagic because it works even when it's closed on mac & uses very little memory compared to others.

Spark is a IOS app only. The cloud magic website does not even load.

thunderbird can schedule email but you need to install a plug in to get that feature and it only works if thunderbird is left open / active.

Great email client for Mac - much like outlook
