long time no update 4/5
By Andy Ma 0086
This app is no update for long time!
Great mail client. Please update! 3/5
This mail client works great on Windows but the macOS version hasn't been updated in years.
This app is dying for an update.
Outstanding, with one fatal flaw 4/5
I’m blown away by this email client! I am a professional writer and I spend hours, daily, writing emails. I have used all of the following email clients: Apple Mail, Gmail webmail,Sweetmail, 4th Office, Boxy, Polymail, Newton, iMail, Kiwi, Airmail, Unibox, Spark, Opera, and probably two or three others. In my experience, Foxmail is head and shoulders above the rest, except for one fatal flaw. The Bcc function is not “blind” in the least; Foxmail treats Bcc addresses the same as Cc addresses — all your recipients will see your Bcc list! This, of course, defeats the whole purpose of Bcc. Worse, it puts you in the embarrassing position of displaying private information to everyone in the To and Cc lines.
Aside from this, Foxmail is a work of genius. For my purposes, probably its greatest strength is the way it organizes threaded conversations. All the above email clients fall on their face when handling threaded conversations. Yes, even the ones like Unibox that claim expertise in threaded conversations. Opera is the exception, like Foxmail. Opera also does a superb job with threaded conversations.
I implore Foxmail to fix the Bcc problem ASAP. When I do a web search for this problem, I find there were people complaining about it some years ago. This is disappointing. It suggests that the developer doesn’t care.

Doesn’t work with Office365 1/5
WIll not recognize the Office365 Exchange URL as a valid server.
太丑了 UI该更新了吧 1/5
Can’t send emails 2/5
By Email sender too
I can receive emails, but it gives a message that the email failed to send and doesn’t indicate the problem. 2 stars because I can receive emails?
Great program, awful icon 4/5
My e-mail needs are very basic, and this program looks like it’s going to fit them perfectly, I love the very simple, clean design, and appreciate that Foxmail doesn’t try to shoehorn me into some alternative, fuzzy-sorting-logic thing like Mailbox app does. So I’m all in with Foxmail, good stuff!
The app’s icon is homely and I feel it poorly represent the quality of this very good program. The icon hurts its credibility, starting with its how it looks in the App Store listing, and continuing with its distractingly-bad appearance in the Dock. I’d strongly encourage the developer to come up with something beautiful and compelling, to match the quality of the app itself.
GMAIL won’t work! 1/5
Download was fine, but it won’t authenticate gmail. Reloaded app a seconded time, still won’t work. Error message said error with email or password. Both were correct, tested both to be sure via google login. Frustrating!
Best Email Client for Mac 5/5
By Fred Behrend
April 17, 2014:
This is the best and best looking email client for Mac. Tencent did a great job, but I do hope they release an iOS version.

App hasn’t been updated in a year, I hope we get a Yosemite-update soon.
Great but I can’t recommend: aggregate inbox 3/5
Great email client, BUT I can’t use or recommend this client until it allows aggregated inbox of all attached email accounts.
It cant display all emails on server 2/5
I found a problem that Foxmail cannot display all emails on server. It seems it can only display past 2 months email. What I expect is a email client which can show all email on server.
Doesn't work with Exchange 1/5
The only reason I got this app was to use it with Exchange, as Airmail seems to want to crash a good deal. I have a lot of messages and need to be able to move a good number at once. Outlook on Mac doesn't work well and neither does MacMail, so I tried this. Waste of time.
Pretty decent, but a little room to improve. 4/5
I love how minimalist this client is! It’s certainly not flashy or feature-packed, but the slimmed-down design is still highly intuitive. Seems to work quite well with Exchange, too. It focuses on email alone, and does so well. The "Mail.app"-style conversation tracking and history view is probably one of my favorite features of all. It keeps track of conversation threads even when I store various parts of the conversation in different folders on the server.
It could improve a little bit, though. For one, I would love to see the ability to set default fonts. Lucida Grande is awful, in my opinion, and though you can sort of semi-hack it to default to something else by using a signature template, it’s not perfect. A default font option would make this app great.
Also, this is more of a hope and not a necessity, but it would be nice to have the ability to insert canned blocks of text from an editable list. I know that such a feature probably goes against the minimalist purpose of this application, but hey, I can hope, right?? :-)
bcc bug 2/5
Good email app but when I sent an email using bcc to all my clients each recipient could see the bcc list which can be disastrous.
Please fix this
Best email app 5/5
Best email app for both mac and Windows in my opinion.
Lots of room to improve 4/5
So far so good. Emails are elegantly shown, and great organization of folders. Everything feels simple and easy to use which is great. I would like to see a unified inbox soon and more options to select from like always expand conversation view.
Simplicity, simplicity, simplicity….Foxmail is that, maybe a little to much... 5/5
There are a few functions missing and some flexibility, OK. In comparison to a bloated Outlook from MS and a Mail.app from Apple that doesn't do it all this is an outstanding client. The developers have really focused on just the essentials, but that is also where your workflow is slightly interrupted. Saving mails into specific folders is cumbersome, either via drag and drop or via the right click menu.
The shortcuts are nice and it would be great to have defined filing actions in it. I perscribe to the ZDT/GDT method and only have a "archive" and "do" folder. So I simply used automater for these functions and assigned a short cut. However, that would make it pretty much perfect. Love the simplicity of adding meetings, but will still stick with busycal for the availability checking feature. Other than that, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this application. It is super fast, always works and uses up very little resources. It was the app that made me switch back form the MS WEB Client to have offline capabilities and guess what I'm not using the web client anymore at all…..
At first I think it is cool, but…………... 2/5
At first I think it is so cool, but find out it could only receive email, but always give me an error message when I tried to send out any email.
The only email account I added to it is QQ exmail. It is claimed that my account will be automatically configured…. but it is not;
I checked QQ help document and changed the settting according to the instructions…. still no luck and even worse, error message kept popping out and requiring me to enter the correct password again, again and again.
The worst thing is I think I should switch back from app to .dmg installation and gave it another shot…. the installation falied even I had already remove the app.
I used to be loyal Foxmail customer on PC, but this time, I am so disappointed. Please fix it
Great, the latest version finally supports the client setup tweak.
Good but needs 1 addition 3/5
Its a pretty nice mail client but would be great if you could view all of your account emails in one inbox. I have 3 email accounts and I have to switch between each account to see if I have new emails.
I was excited, but I'll pass for now 2/5

I've been waiting for a Mac mail client to surface with a focus on Exchange — God knows how many larger employers use Exchange, and as a graphic designer, getting Apple's Mail.app to interface with Exchange servers has been an imperfect experience at best. The choice is to use Mail.app's incomplete Exchange support, or purchase Microsoft's bloated Outlook for Mac, which maintains separate calendars and tasks from native Apple apps. Bleh.
So... Foxmail. I have not heard of Foxmail before, but from what I read today, it seems to be popular in China. This is evident in the jarring, poorly-translated prompts and messages present throughout the app. Apple has set the bar for perfect, 100% usability-focused text, and Foxmail falls more than a bit short. I was surprised, since a single well-versed English translator could probably fix this problem with little effort.
But this small problem pales beside the fact that I just can't get the app properly connected to my employer's Exchange server. I log in, it says "Success," it pulls up my Inbox with my messages, but even after letting it sit for a good while, the content of the emails never show up. The loading spinner just keeps spinning. Mail.app has always been very snappy with my Exchange mail, so I don't understand what the problem is. Maybe it's trying to sync all the thousands of my saved emails from my many folders? That would be pretty dumb, but who knows?
Aside from this bug, I still fail to see the draw of this app. Perhaps I misunderstand the target market (China...?), but this app seems like a version of Mail.app with fewer features and more bugs. It doesn't have the intuitive, attractive qualities of Sparrow or other minimalist email clients, and it doesn't seem to do anything that Mail.app doesn't already do. Of course, I'll give it another try when everything is working properly, but I don't see any indication that there's any innovation here worth switching over for.
Still, 2 stars for effort. I hope this turns into something cool in the future.
