    Full IMAP support, including Gmail, MobileMe, Yahoo, AOL and lotsa other new features. I was waiting for this major update and see if it could replace Apple's new Mail 5. Basically, I've decided to ditch Sparrow altogether for the sole reason of not including MobileMe Rules in the latest update. Sticking with Mail 5 for now.

    My major problem with Sparrow is that is doesn't allow you to block external images while loading emails. It's minimalist, which I like, but I also like there to be a little horsepower under the hood. Sparrow still doesn't really offer that.

    Bah. Why are there no proper functioning email clients for mac? I only use two servers for email - Gmail and Outlook.com - and there seems to be no app that can work with the two correctly. I am strongly tempted to write my own damn client.

    I downloaded Sparrow yesterday. I like the interface, but its buggy. Sometimes the dock doesn't show if its running or not (even if the program is open) and other stuff like that.

    I'll probably use Mail over Sparrow.
    I have to say though, I like the interface.
