Mail features that Gmail doesn't support (yet)

  • Recipient-based mail formatting. Your boss wants you to attach an nice signature, but you hate HTML. With offline clients (Thunderbird, Outlook…), you can decide to reply with HTML for a given contact and with plain text for others
  • Sender-based recipient address. You have configured two addresses for sending: (default) and Way too often, you accidentally send a professional email with your personal address. The only known software I know which can prevent this is the incredibly-powerful-but-scaringly-CLI mutt (and the even more powerful mutt-ng)
Want them? Ask for them!
