I use Thunderbird right now but it's pretty slow and kind of quirky, is there anything better?
mail + gmail pop service = win
Exact same here
Yeah. Definitely. Hands down.
gmail pop3 is ghey to the maxx.
imap4 or bust.
I like it
what doesnt it do?
i find mail.app feels rather primative...thunderbirds junk filter is > * and works pretty well with both pop and imap email, altho the .mac mail seems a little sluggish to send messages
the difference is of little significance
primitive? you can set it up to do anything outlook/entourage can do in terms of rules and whatnot.
as for junk mail, gmails filter works perfect. i haven't received one spam message since configuring mail for gmails pop access
i find it very hard to trust most email programs... i don't feel as "connected" when using them... i get kind of paranoid and find myself just checking my gmail thru google.com anyways...
I also just like how gmail works... it is truly fantastic, it has everything i need and more (except gtalk in safari, grrrr). i feel like the only use for mail programs, is working with emails when offline... but that is quite rare...
well your feelings have some merit because you arent actually looking at the source of the email.
really though, the email program is just logging into your account and pulling the messages off of the gmail server. as long as its set up properly, it should theoretically be just as effective.
and if you want to use gtalk, you can set up your gtalk account in adium.
where can I get this?
I use entourage for my corporate e-mails
Mail.app is already installed
gmail is google
just google: gmail pop 3 information, it will tell you how to set up your mail client to work with it
just plug in the pop3 info into mail 2.0 and it uses the same junk filter and servers and all of that jazz.
not to mention it's made by apple and accomplishes the same thing as this third party app.
is there a way to, use the gmail service but use a different name in such a way that people would never know.
like have [email protected], but use [email protected] so that everyone sees the [email protected] address, but its all on the gmail servers?
Why not just set up a pop account with the [email protected] account?
the flexability of checking and responding to emails through gmail
