I am thinking about learning Cocoa just so I can write a Mac e-mail client that doesn't suck.

Eudora sucks but it is the best of the bunch, but it is buggy on Intel for me. My Inbox keeps losing memory of labels and what's been read (even what I have already filtered out).

Maybe I'll just give up e-mail altogether!

    Personally, I find fine for my needs. To tell you the truth, after reading your post, I'm not exactly sure I understand why or what you th
  • My biggest gripe with Apple Mail is that its IMAP support sucks. I filter my mail into numerous mailboxes, on the server. Because of that (apparently), Apple Mail usually doesn't notice new messages. I got in the habit of clicking through all of my folders, so that it would update its notion of what's new. That works sometimes. Other times, I can "synchronize" and click through and refresh to my heart's content, and it still doesn't notice new messages. There have been times that I have done all of th
