Today I gave Sparrow a try. It’s a simplified Mac email app that recently gained support for imap email accounts. Prior to version 1.1 it was strictly for use with Google’s gmail (which I don’t use). I was curious about the idea of using a much more streamlined email client. Currently I use Apple’s Mail, and although [...]
