MailMate Screenshots

By default MailMate has a classic email client layout, but don’t let this fool you. MailMate is highly configurable.
A special feature of MailMate is its tight integration with the Markdown markup language. Create nicely formatted emails using simple plain text.
Security is taken seriously by MailMate. This is best illustrated by the Security preferences pane. You have full control of image blocking, spam filtering (third party software), and you can send/receive messages using either OpenPGP or S/MIME.
Various layouts (some a bit experimental) can be found in the “View ? Layouts” menu. These include a simple widescreen variant of the default layout, but the above screenshot is the Correspondence layout. It automatically shows any correspondence related to the sender/recipient of the currently selected message.

If you're looking for a powerful alternative to Apple Mail, on the Mac then this might be it.

This mail client has some excellent feature, like Markdown support in mail messages and really powerful smart mailboxes.

You might think it's a tad expensive, but I'd recommend trying it out. I did, and then ended up buying it!
