What mail app should I use on my mac?
Posted on 2013-11-13
Apple's mail app really really sucks. There are all sorts of normal option that any basic mail client should have that just aren't there.
Unless I am just not looking in the right place.
And the options that do appear to be there don't really work....
I use google apps for my work and private email, and it works great with my PC, my iphone, my ipad, it's just the stupid apple mac mail app that doesn't co-operate.
1. I want push - I enabled IDLE - but there's no option for proper push email - the closest is "automatic" which still checks according to a schedule.
2. turn off imap syncing some of my folders. my "archive" folders are HUGE - they use more than half my mac HD. and I don't need them synced. in all other mail clients I've used, there's an option to choose which folders to sync, I can't find that in mail app.
So - is there a way to get these to work,
Or is there another mail app that I can use that's better?
Or can I turn off syncing completely and just use the mail app to send only? - cos I actually prefer the web interface, the only reason I really have mail - is to send attachments and share stuff easier.
