    Morning to all,

    I'm having the hardest time finding another email client (other than Mail App) that supports the use of iCloud aliases leaving me no choice but to continue using Mail app (which is not my favorite).

    I've searched the internet and found only ONE other - sigh, Unibox, which is actually pretty good but it doesn't have any organization controls.

    If you know of any I should download and try, I'd appreciate your help!

    Thanks in advance,

    Macthang

    With postbox you can but you need to set it up with the main account and then set up the aliases . There is a place under each email account in settings/identity where You set up the alias. It's not automatic like the mail app is but it's really pretty good. You might download the trial and see how you like it.

    I've used thunderbird with iCloud imap settings, giving me email address as one of the aliases.
    I use an alias as opposed to "advertising" my AppleID


    Worked ok.

    Thank you!

    I've used Postbox in the past and really enjoyed it, the aliases weren't working for me back then so I stopped using it. I will give it another go.

    I'll try Thunderbird as well and see which I like the most.

    Thank you both so much for your quick reply.

    The aliases are working for me in postbox, I just got it free with the macheist bundle and have 2 set up along with my icloud account.

    Have you tried Airmail? I've been using it for several months, with my iCloud alias addresses, and have been pleased with its performance.
