Email Clients

A quick blurb on the state of email clients I've tried out.


I’ve always been somewhat obsessed with keeping up with the latest and greatest productivity tools, so naturally I’ve looked into some email clients.

The solution I ended up going with is Inbox and intentionally abandoning my iCloud email.

The only downside to Inbox is that it’s Google accounts only so I can’t utilize its power with any other email providers like Outlook or iCloud.
