    Great job in building a good looking JMAP client, I use Mail to connect to my Fastmail account, ie IMAP.

    It's a bit disappointing that JMAP isn't more widely supported but the last time I looked, Fastmail itself wasn't really maintaining the standard they invented.

    I did some implementation to send emails over JMAP and it was hard to find good examples to follow. Perhaps that is changing.

    Is there anyone from Fastmail here that can give a brief outlook for JMAP?

      Thank you!

      There are quite a few mail-adjacent JMAP specs in the pipeline according to https://jmap.io/spec.html. I've enjoyed working with JMAP as a protocol, so I hope to see its continued growth as well.

    That's so cool, I wish JMAP was real.

    (By that I mean that there's virtually no way to use it besides using Fastmail)

    If you glance quickly you could mistake this for another native SwiftUI+AppKit mail client that supports mainly GMail ;)

    That said, it is hard not to have quite similar looking apps with SwiftUI on macOS.

    Very interesting. I have been hoping to see direct support for JMAP in a native app.

    I have been reliant on Fastmail web app. I will put this on my list to review when I have spare time.

    Using your apps from sometime and still love it

    Looks pleasant, but $40AUD/year for a mail client seems insanely expensive. That kind of money even once off seems like a lot!

    Looks interesting, but... yet another subscription. I'm willing to pay for good apps, but I'm not willing to keep stacking subscriptions.

      Same here. Especially something I use on daily bases.
