Pro Forgotten attachment reminders by default
Reminding the user that they forgot to attach the file if they mentioned one in the body of the email is one of the most useful features of any email client and so many don't include this.

Con Maximum limit number of account support
Free version of Touchmail only supports up to 2 accounts while paid version of Touchmail only supports up to 6 accounts.
Con Way too expensive
Currently (June 2022) the price is at US $79. That's absolutely ridiculous for an E-Mail client. The design alone is pretty but neither does that or the functionality in any way justify the pricing. Thunderbird hasn't such a clean interface, but can do the same with even more options and ... it's for FREE.
Con No support forum
Support for paid product has no online forums.
