    I personally find the Apple Mail app shocking so prefer to sodomise my Mac and put Outlook on. Never noticed any issues with that.

    Has anyone found a fix for this that works?

    When sending email from my Gmail accounts, via Apple Mail on a macbook (OSX 10.8.3, 2.4GHz, 8GB) it takes ages to send. A 2mb attachment took 15 mins. Yet on iphone it takes seconds (on the same wifi network).

    I’ve googled it but only found pages of people reporting the same problem.

    Other than ditching Mail (or perhaps Gmail) is there any solution?

    Thanks for any help.

    P.S. I use Windows 7 all day at work. I do not want to have to use Windows at home as well. Buying a Windows box is therefore not an option.

    That’s a thought. I’ve got Office 2011, just didn’t install Outlook. Does it work with iPhoto etc?


    Or try Thunderbird from Mozilla.

    me and mrs Ed have issues with google calendar sharing, I am of the opinion that the iphone is designed to only want to work with other iphones or apple kit in order to cross sell other overpriced apple kit….


    If an email client is a must try this

    If not just run gmail in chrome.

    On iOS devices run the gmail app.


    Gmail and Mail work together just fine for me (also kn Mountain Lion) Sorry that’s not very helpful.

    Just bloody accept that Android is the way forward and your life will be workout these worries!
