    I use Newton. I like it's simple UI and the read ticks are very useful and unique to Newton.

    Personally, I use the built-in Mail app in Sierra to manage by Gmail and Hotmail accounts as it does a good job of keeping everything separate.

    To add Hotmail, I add it as an exchange account.

    It's not working as exchange account. I've tried 3x.

    I use Apple Mail. Over at least last six years, I've been trying various mail clients, but kept returning to Apple mail every time. Simple, reliable, works well with multiple accounts, smart mailboxes are great. Sierra's version has some annoying quirks (sync when deleting/archiving), but it seems fixed in High Sierra.

    Try adding Hotmail as other if Exchange does not work.

    Same + on iPad. Best mail app and it syncs settings and accounts across devices.Works well with GMail labels.

    It's a great app if you use multiple Apple devices. If you are strictly looking for a Mac Desktop mail app, look into Postbox also but it is pricey. I use it at work (so I didn't pay for it) to keep it separate from the rest of my personal emails and gmail label integration is great for GSuites/GMail.

    I am pretty happy with Apple Mail ... I've tried Spark, but hate the fact that you cannot view mail except in 'threaded' view... I would much prefer to view individual emails as stand-alone entities...

    I've personally tried Airmail, Spark, Newton, PolyMail. In the end I always come back to Apple Mail. Nothing seems to work better or faster on Mac or iOS and it's integrated into the OS, more on iOS than macOS but none the less.

    I notice you use tmobile, I do too. DO you get any dead zone where you're from? how do you fix it? I've had replaced my SIM card so far, reset the phone. Seems to do better now.

    I have zero issues with T-Mobile. But I'm in the Cleveland area and suburbs. The service has improved a lot in the last 2 years. The only place I don't get reception is if I go into the Cuyahoga National Park. But it's the valley. But if I go out towards Sandusky through farm land or to Columbus, I stay in LTE now where 2 years ago it would go to E or G.

    Before looking for a third party mail app, have a solid reason for why you personally can not use Mail.
