Windows developers really couldn't care less about using a native interface huh?
Applications like that instantly make me remember why I switched to Mac OS X.
Yes I miss the apps.
I no longer have my mac, my wife and daughter still have them, but I needed a PC for work. Started using Windows 7 when in Beta and decided I liked it, still using it. And NOW I have so many GAMES on it that I don't know if I can ever go back.
My only hope is that as MS tries to better regulate APIs and the UI libraries in the future, app developers will be more limited in how far they can stray from a "norm."
So for now, anyway, it is Postbox for me. Can't stand Outlook (which I own - MS Office 2010) and Windows Live Mail is... well, O.K. Postbox has great features and is stable as can be... and the developer[s] add features based on requests in the forums which can be voted up and down by the users... and versions come out every few months. He also supports OS X and Linux (since it was originally based on Thunderbird).

That really isn't a native interface, I'll agree there.
Inbox2 seems pretty decent actually. The only problem I have is that GDI++ won't re-render it with smoother text for whatever reason. It also crashes when I open up a large Gmail conversation (eg. I have one with 40+ messages in it).
Ah! That is exactly what I tried ... installed it, pointed to my gmail account, clicked on the first message in the list and *boom*... crash.
