Spark, like many other services, allows you to clear your mailbox and set reminders to reply at a later date and time. Spark is comparable with Yahoo! Mail, Outlook.com, iCloud, Gmail, or any Pop or IMAP service. Spark even offers push notifications for Gmail accounts – which the stock version doesn’t include.

2. Outlook

5. Mailbox
