    Such as Mailbox or Boxer. Do you guys use a 3rd party app because you 'need' to or because it's just a better interface than the default mail.app?

    Default is enough for me ... It connects perfect to all my relevant IMAP accounts.

    I've been using Mailbox since it was available for iCloud. Mail.app is sufficient, but I really like the UI of Mailbox..

    Mailbox because mail.app doesn't have push for Gmail and that's kinda important for me.

    Mailbox: doesn't do exchange (my work e-mail) and information passes through their servers from what I remember where others don't.

    Boxer: Too slow to sync, won't show unread count in folders.

    I use the native mail app.

    I use the native Mail.app too.

    Mailbox might be nice, but it doesn't do yahoo or exchange.

    I use sparrow on my personal machine, I like the combined inbox and the way that folders are handled. I got it the day I bought my first Mac and have never used anything else (except outlook at work, windows environment :( )
