- Alternative to Mac Mail
I’ve tried a number of different apps in recent times for email, but as with the others, I tend to fall back to using mail.
The only thing that bugs me is the syncing, it seems to be a bit slow at getting new mail for me. Bent other than that, it has been the best of he bunch I’ve used.Posted 3 years agom360Member
Having switched from Outlook to Mac Mail (and Mac from PC), I couldn’t believe that all I had to do was type in my email address and password when I first opened Mail, and boom, Yahoo account done. No messing with pop forwarding addresses and all that rubbish. I now have 3 email accounts running in Mail and it works a treat.
Not sure what issues you’re having, but it could be worth popping in to an Apple store (book an appointment first), I find that they know their stuff and can usually fix things – for free!Posted 3 years agojambalayaSubscriber
I use Mail and it works well with numerous accounts. That being said when Mavericks first came out there where a few issues.
Trying one of these others seems to be a cheap option (£1.50 is hard not to give it a whirl) given you don;t wish to mess with Mail but of course there is not guaranty you won’t have technical issues with another supplier.
Its not so convenient but you can acesss gmail / yahoo via their web mail pagesPosted 3 years agothe wandererMember
Mrs Wanderer has a 2011 Mac Book Pro and has no end of trouble with Mac Mail for the various e-mail addresses she has (gmail, yahoo, POP3…).
As the tech support in the family (and with limited Mac experience) I’ve tried all sorts to get Mail running for all her accounts (deleting accounts, clearing keys, re-instating accounts, changing ports..) As soon as I get it running smoothly something else seems to go wrong.
Is there a better solution out there? She does have Office, so could use Outlook but I really don’t know much about macs.
Would appreciate some help. CheersPosted 3 years ago
