Spark and Polymail should definitely also be added to the list of alternatives.

A pretty decent alternative to Sparrow

Positive Comment by OmgItsTheSmartGuy
about Airmail Mar 2014

This app has gotten a lot better in the last year or so. When it was first released, it was really not that great at all-- it could only support Gmail accounts, the interface looked like junk, etc. Recently, however, AirMail has entirely replaced Sparrow (which was discontinued last year) as my desktop email client of choice. It's rapidly improving, and I can only expect things to get better from here.
