Spark threads every email sent with any responses. Very easy to accidentally delete the whole thread or send everyone on the thread an unintended response. Just started using it. Will most likely go back to mail and keep searching for an alternative. Note, the threading option cannot be turned off. It is a major feature of Spark.

Mail vs Spark or Alternatives?

I've recently heard spark saves my mail in their servers. I was wondering if this was standard practice or safe. If not, I might go back to using old Mail app that comes default. Or are there alternatives?

Thanks

Spark Mail by Readdle promised privacy but didn’t deliver it.
I might be wrong, but my understanding is that this is standard for any email app which promises push notifications (that's how they deliver it in the first place). So it really comes down to whether you trust the developer to not do anything shady.

On the desktop, I would stick with the stock mail app. It feels good enough for what you should need it for anyways.
