Con Collectss user data
Mailbird does collect some user data such as user email addresses, names and client use. So for those that are security minded the use collection of this information may not be wanted and can not be avoided.

Currently the price is at 45€. That's ridiculous for an E-Mail client. The design alone is pretty but neither does that or the functionality in any way justify the pricing.
