When it comes to concepts of new email clients, .Mail app for Mac (dotMail) is one of the most beautiful and well thought-out ones out there. One caveat so far: it’s not real yet, though you can already sign up to be informed when it becomes available.
.Mail app: the design

These and other features and new innovations can be found in a concept description with more screenshots over at the .Mail app webpage.
