    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 the above, throughout the course of a few hours, only to have a piece of mail show up as "new" several hours later -- when it's actually been there all along.

    I've actually switched to using GyazMail. It's not as feature-laden as Apple Mail (its threading support, for example, isn't nearly as powerful). On the other hand, it's a lot snappier, and its IMAP support is rock solid. It's well worth the minimal shareware fee, IMHO.

    I do like Apple Mail's interface and features, though, and hope that Leopard will "make it right", or that something else will come along that's got the features that Apple Mail has, yet has the stability that GyazMail has.
