SETUP NEWTON MAIL
Download the free 14-day trial for Mac and setup your account. The first mailaccount you add will be your login account from now on. NEWTON Mail supports most mail accounts.
MULTIDEVICE EMAIL CLIENT
The first thing you’ll notice is the minimalistic interface of Newton Mail. This is by default and can’t be changed in anyway. Moving your mouse to the left topcorner reveals the separate email accounts and the All Inboxes folder.
The sidebar however can not be set to be displayed all the time. Another
The presented preferences seem small but adequate for most users. Accounts can be added easily and HTML signatures can be added, however not by simply dragging your ‘html’ code into the box ! You need to have prepared a
plain text version of your HTML signature in order to make it work. Well anyway the straight ‘ html-body ‘ part I tried to insert didn’t work unlike other email clients like Postbox, Airmail and Spark to name a few.
Newton Mail being a paid email client needs to show some special features in order to give value for money. The latest version of Newton Mail present the following integrated features:
- Read Receipts allow users to track the status of their email, whether this has been read and users can be notified when it has been read by recipient, in real time.
Snooze emails give you the ability to mute emails for a later time, so they appear when you need them.
Connected Apps include integrations with apps like Todoist, Asana, Evernote, Pocket and many more to help users get more done with their favourite productivity apps.
Undo Send allows users to retract an email that has been just sent, useful for any errors made or recipient issues.
Send Later is a new feature allowing users to schedule emails for another time.
Sender Profiles gives you access to the professional profile online
All of these features are included within the yearly subscription, the features also work across all email accounts (Gmail, Exchange, Google Apps, Office 365, Outlook.com, IMAP and iCloud) and across all devices (iOS, Android, MacOS) with a Newton Mail Windows application coming in January 2017.
INTERFACE and USE
Newton Mail has as mentioned earlier a full minimalistic layout which makes it easy to read as there are no distractions. Shortcuts can be used for specific proceedings. The absence of a toolbar normally showing the buttons for message proceedings is now integrated in every message displayed in the interface. When you activate the message by moving your mouse on it, the available buttons show .
Composing a new message displays a listing of all added accounts from a drop down menu. Again minimalistic but very good readability. When send the email tracking works really nice, providing information about the recipient and sending a notice when read. This feature is useful for businesses but also for private users. Snooze your emails for later sending . Its all there in a nice interface and all works great. I found no problems on any platform.
Is there any criticism? Of course nothing is perfect in this world, and I for one miss the ‘ Drag & Drop ‘ functionality for sorting all mail in all folders. It IS really necessary to keep things organized when you have 30 or more iCloud folders. The disappearing sidebar is not my favorite, better have a preferences setting ‘ Show/Hide Sidebar ‘ . The color-bar ( see prefs ) in the beginning of a message is too thin. I almost can’t tell the difference between them, and thats no good if an option like this is present.
To sum it all up, Newton Mail offers some pretty nice features and works fast and stable on all platforms.
- individual email tracking
- One-click Unsubscribe
- 2-step verification ( to be set if you want true safety )
- Notify when Read option
- support many languages
Newton Mail ( former Cloudmagic ) is a really good email client supporting almost any email account. It features a multidevice support which makes it useful for any user. The minimalistic interface is modern but lacks some refinement, though this is a matter of taste. Its a fast and absolutely stable performer on all platforms, which is great for any business. Newton Mail supports some integrated features not found on most competitors in a crowded market. Its a real business tool, no frills but pure power. Newton Mail is not cheap, but a solid performer taking simplicity to another level.
