What is Spark Mail?

Smart Inbox automatically detects if an email is personal, a notification or a newsletter and groups it with similar emails for easy batch processing using beloved swipes. With just a glance, you can see if emails are important or just a product announcement from a service you've never used.

We all love the feeling of accomplishment when we have finally dealt with our inbox. Spark makes this easy to achieve. Quickly process your emails, swiping to archive or delete as necessary. Pin emails which relate to things you need to do today, or quickly swipe left to archive those you've already dealt with. If you can't finish a task today, swipe to snooze for tomorrow or another day (if you're really busy).

A few more reasons to love Spark:

UNIFIED INBOX See all of your important email at a glance, with a unified inbox which knows the difference between a personal email, a notification and a newsletter.

SMART SEARCH Use natural language to search through your emails. Type "attachments from Alex last week" to see all the emails sent to you last week by Alex with an attachment.

SIGNATURES Spark will automatically find your most used signatures. So you can quickly swipe between them when composing an email, to choose the one that's best suited.

QUICK REPLIES Let your friends and colleagues quickly know what you thought about their email with one tap to send a "Like", "Thanks" or any other custom reply.

SMART NOTIFICATIONS Enable Smart Notifications to only be disturbed by emails you care about.

SAVE ATTACHMENTS Save attachments to iCloud Drive, Google Drive, Dropbox, OneDrive, Readability, Pocket, Evernote, OneNote or any application on your iPhone and iPad.

Spark Mail has a very beautiful UI, it can easily synchronize between all your devices, although Apple Mail is fine, Spark does everything better.

Yes, they do. It's why I don't use them. Source: https://sparkmailapp.com/privacy

Accounts are added to Spark through OAuth where possible. Where OAuth is not supported we keep your account username and password on our secure servers. We then use the authorization provided to download your emails to our virtual servers and push to your device. We use Amazon Web Services (AWS) infrastructure to store your data. Apart from the AWS' security policies we take a number of measures to ensure that your data is never read by anyone else. We ensure that all transmission is secured with HTTPS so that no one else can access your data. Your account credentials are stored on secure cloud-based servers using asymmetric encryption.

Spark Mail is the kind of app that expects the user to conform to its superior way of doing things. Want to check mail in a single account? Sorry, you're not supposed to do that. Spark Mail will tell you which email you need to read right now. Comply, earthling! Soon you will understand and will stop resisting.

I tried to search for emails older than one week, but unfortunately, Spark does not provide this functionality. I emailed their support, and they confirmed this (ticket number 1218139).

Some of my emails are missing! Spark checks several email accounts including the Exchange account for my work. The inbox for this account in Spark does not show any emails. It says, "You've achieved inbox zero!" But the inbox for this account in Outlook web mail shows dozens of emails.

I tried searching in Spark for a missing email. It found the email in the search results, and it showed the email in the inbox thereafter. But I want the email to show up when it arrives –– not after I search for it.

I also tried deleting the account in Spark and then adding it back. This did not restore the missing emails.

Although Apple Mail does just fine, syncs perfectly between devices, and does have a small ability to adjust the interface, it is frankly boring. Worse, it is difficult to read for someone dealing with vision problems. In my case, I have blurred vision in spots due to a retinal vein occlusion. And due to my age, my doctor sees the beginning of cataracts, which also means that bright whites produce more glaring.

Thus, I search for an email client that allows me to adjust the background, font face and text sizes. Additional features like package tracking, temporary email addresses, send later, email receipts, etc. are just window-dressing when you cannot read the emails.

I have yet to find one. I downloaded Spark, which is Free! (unlike Airmail, which is now $27.95 and does the same thing), but Spark failed at the most important part: I cannot change the icon sizes or Font Face. I guess I expect it to work like an epub, but you understand: Vision loss creates its own havok.

Bluemail gives a more readable interface, but it also has problems. It occasionally has syncing issues with icloud. You cannot change the font sizes. You cannot swipe to archive. I would LOVE this app if only these features were given.

So of the 3, Spark at least allows swiping and a dark mode. Meh.
