I just read the doc, it seems to support yahoo mail & gmail – blue-sky Sep 1 '11 at 10:55
If you want something that looks and feels a little more like the iPhone app, try Sparrow - there is a free version on the Mac App Store, this was originally specifically written for Gmail, but has recently been updated to work with most mail systems. – stuffe Sep 1 '11 at 10:59
