Checkout The New Email Desktop App Client for Linux: WMail
WMail is the self-proclaimed ‘missing desktop client for Gmail & Google Inbox’ and it is ultimately up to Gmail users to tell us whether that is true.
Already existing open-source email clients like Geary, Nylas N1 and Thunderbird, – which also have support Gmail, are good at delivering a dependable Gmail experience to the desktop. Besides, anyone who isn’t happy with them can just head over to the Gmail website.
WMail — Gmail Desktop App for Windows, Mac & Linux
We think the answer you will get from Gmail fans and email power users is “yes”.
All of us here at Ubuntu next prefer the Gmail web UI but we also miss the convenience that a native desktop integration provides. Features like unread mail count or new mail notifications are ones that users have gotten to love.
The VMail stated on their website that “WMail adds loads of features that mail on the web misses making your mail feel right at home on your computer. It’s easy to use, fast and has all the features you’re already enjoying on the web”.
The app includes many features, including:
- Desktop Notifications
- Different Unread searches
- Drag & Drop files
- Keyboard shortcuts
- Multiple Accounts
- Tray Icon
- Unread Count (sadly not on the Unity launcher)
