Every since OS X Mavericks was released, a number of people have had issues with the built in mail app, with a number of problems with Gmail, smart mailboxes, stability and even iCloud.
I have experienced these issues myself, and it appears to be an ongoing problem, sometimes my mail works, sometimes it doesn’t, and it is even causing my iCloud account to lock up regularly.
Now it looks like Apple is working on a fix for the various issues with the mail app on OS X Mavericks, the update version of the app is currently being tested by Apple employees and also testers in the AppleSeed customer program.
Apple is asking the testers of the new mail app on OS X Mavericks to test the following things.
Use Mail with your usual Mail accounts, including iCloud, Gmail, Exchange, etc.
Send Mail messages
Receive and check for new Mail messages at the intervals you expect it
Read and move Mail messages to folders on your mail server, folders on your Mac, smart folders.
Delete Mail messages as appropriate
Undo move or delete actions with your Mail messages
Mark messages read/unread in both your mail provider’s webpage and Mail and verify they stay in sync..
As yet there are no details on exactly when Apple will release the updated version of their mail app for everyone, lets hope it is soon, as the existing one is very annoying, and some people, myself included are having issues with the app on a daily basis.
