Follow-up on Liked “MailMate”:
I just bought MailMate a couple of minutes ago. It turns out I love to use plain-text email for writing and reading. It’s just way easier to edit my emails in MacVim than to fuck around with the Mail.app compose window.
The Things integration is also pretty cool. I can get the complete plain-text email in the to-do note, which is way more excellent than the jumbled text-fest I had previously parsed by the Things mail service forwarded from Mail.
I’m still developing my workflow around the rule-based smart mailboxes, which are pretty powerful.
I’ll write more about this app in the future.
