Yep. It's a really basic app, and one I gave up a long time ago. FWIW, Outlook for Mac works flawlessly with Mavericks.
A piece of garbage can still work 'flawlessly' as long as that was the creator's intention.
Yea, Outlook might fetch email without (much) difficulty, but the program so god awful I could never even consider using it as a primary for work, and that's coming from someone with 3 work email accounts two of which are Exchange!
Exchange support on Mac is non-existent across the board (no push = no exchange as far as I'm concerned...and it needs to be addressed by Apple.
Except, no, it isn’t, so stop.
Or, rather, what did Apple change between 10.8 and 10.9 that now doesn’t accept the use of broken IMAP implementations?
I've got an iCloud IMAP account and 5 Google Apps-hosted (Gmail-based) IMAP accounts. This problem does not affect me very much. Messages seem to arrive properly - unless I first receive them in another email client, such as on my phone. If I receive an email on my phone, the message does not appear immediately on my Mac in every case. That's where the frustration comes from. Other than that, this problem is minimal for me.
Because Google doesn't care about your use of existing apps. We all _demand_ innovation from these tech companies, and Google is more focused on the next big announcement they can make rather than just cleaning up what they have now.
I agree. I have a Google Apps account and a regular Gmail account and the read messages do not update for hours when read on another device. My Google Apps never gives me an unread count in the dock. Blue dots and unread count on the "archive" folder, but nothing on the inbox folder or dock. After trying this "trick" I am now not getting a count on the Gmail account.
Yea, I agree. They all work great with their own "clients". At work we switched from Exchange to Google Apps and half the company is pissed because they don't like Gmail's UI and want to use Mail, Outlook, Thunderbird, etc. But none of them support Google's oAuth and the company doesn't want unsecured access to mail so we are screwed.
