Solution to Mail.app for OSX Users

apple Mail.app

An alternative solution to Mail.app for OSX users.

I've been using Apple Macs for over 3 years now and one thing I find utterly frustrating is the Mail.app. The Mail.app really slows my workflow down and I'm sure it does to you too if you bought into an Apple ecosystem because when it comes to deleting mails from the app, it doesn't sync with iOS's Mail.app.

The issue here is that the Mail.app in OSX doesn't support ActiveSync for an unknown reason and I've been looking and looking for a good 1 year!

OSX to iOS does not sync deleted files

The Solution

I went on a 30-day trial for an alternative mail app called Postbox (Check out their website here) and Hallelujah! the syncing is flawless!

Setup is a breeze as you can port over from the Mail.app and downloading a bunch of mail was done in seconds!

Conclusion

This app isn't for the fancy shmancies because it looks like an app which was created 5 years ago. If you are all about functionality like I am, then you are in for a treat! I'm sure there are other features that this app does not have, but for what I use it for, it is perfect.

Not confident that this USD$10 app will solve your mail issues?

You have 3 options:

  1. Keep looking for a suitable app (let me know which one you go for because I am open to other solutions!).
  2. Take the 30-day trial before paying US$10.
  3. Hire an email admin.
