I've been using Mail since I got my mac, and have just about had enough of its pantsness.... what's the best, free, downloadable mail programme to use?
I hate the way it just deletes your mail after a few weeks... I'm not organised enough to put them all in folders! :lol:Brian Burrows said:
I use (Apple Mac) Mail every day . . . and I get and send LOTS
What 'pantsness' is causing you a problem, exactly?
I've looked all through the settings and can't work it out.... I need a dummies guide or something! :lol:Far_Canal said:The latest version of Apple Mail is not too bad at all, to be honest I'm thinking of deploying it, instead of this shit entourage... why oh why can't microsoft invest into a decent OSX exchange client... Outlook 2001 was good for classic, but where is it's counterpart for X???
I'm pretty sure it's not deleting your mail after few months, probably archiving it, check your settings...
I've done that.... maybe it's just meda' Fandango said:Go to your mail programme then Mail>preferences>accounts then select to store copes of all messages and attachments for offline viewing.
Then your messages are kept.
I had the same problem a while back with Mail deleting my messages before I had a chance to archive them myself.
Are you reading emails from a IMAP server.. like AOL for example?the vyxster said:I've done that.... maybe it's just me
use thunderbird, take five minutes to learn how the 'rules wizard' works then make a rule to copy all your mail to a local folder each time it is checked, no more lost messages.the vyxster said:So it's the evilness of AOL!
Now just need to find myself a new email addy....
Well I had no idea it does this! I'd better check my settings! That would explain why I couldn't find an email the other day.the vyxster said:I hate the way it just deletes your mail after a few weeks... I'm not organised enough to put them all in folders! :lol:
