Mailspring is a cross-platform email client. It has all the basic features for working with e-mail. It has a modern interface.
- Search for emails using the query language (in, has:attachment, subject, from, to and so on)
- View available sender information-social media profiles, message history, and more.
- Tracking the opening and reading of sent emails.
- Send emails at the specified time.
- Creating rules for processing mail.
- Custom signatures.
- Create email templates.
- Snoozing-ability to set a certain time for a message, after which it should remind itself. This is useful when you do not have the ability to respond to the letter right now and you do not want to see it in your Inbox. The letter as it will be delivered to you again later at a certain time.
- Hotkey support. You can select a profile (as in Outlook, Gmail).
- Theme support.
- G Suite
- Office 365
- Outlook.com (Hotmail)
At the top of the program window is a menu and toolbar, including the search bar.
The main workspace is divided into columns: folders for cataloging and selecting letters, list of letters, viewing letters, information about senders.
The interface is responsive, there are tooltips. It supports dragging and dropping letters with the mouse, folding, grouping letters within a single conversation (topic).

When you first start the program opens the wizard, through which you can perform the initial settings and enter your mail account information. In the first step, you will be prompted to create an account Mailspring ID. The account is required for some advanced features to work, as well as for synchronizing data when using the program on different computers. Passwords from boxes are never sent to the cloud. Unfortunately, this step cannot be skipped. This is definitely a drawback of the program.
The program exists in two versions. Basic-all basic functionality of the mail client is available and extended-with additional features. The basic version is free. Extended-paid by subscription-about8 $ per month, which for the average user, in my opinion, a lot.
