    Thunderbird vs Spark Mail opinions

    Thunderbird is buggy, frequently locks up, slow and takes long to update from server. Spark is fast, easy and beautiful

    There is NO Spark Version for Windows. That's why Thunderbird is the Best Alternative IMO.

    I tested it, generally it is ok, but it sometimes does not show new arrivals at the top of the list, even though the counter increases. However, good mail client, which does not need any clumsy registrations somewhere.

    It's the most similar, with the features most inline. It even looks the same in appearance, and all the menus and shortcut keys match.

    As far as my usage history, the best alternative for spark mail is Mailspring in terms of UI and UX. Though it lacks some features I use Mailspring as my daily driver.

    BlueMail vs Spark Mail opinions
    Most users think BlueMail is a great alternative to Spark Mail.
    byronhawkins

    BlueMail is built as an entire Chrome browser instance, using a separate OS process for every message window, making it massively heavy on CPU and memory usage. Normally I had to wait more than a minute for each message to display. It was always at least half an hour late to notify new messages. A software development team with even minimal skills would never build an app so poorly. The design is crippled from top to bottom. I recommend avoiding BlueMail as if it were malware.
