Does Mail Need a Re-write?
Ever since Yosemite Mac OS X 10 has been with us there have been persistent reports of problems with the Mail app. This is not for everyone—I’ve had no issues—but plenty of people have had plenty of strife.
Apple have heard the yells and are re-writing Mail for the new operating system, called El Capitan Mac OS X 11.
Why is it so important to have a bug free, healthy email application? Well think about it. Unless you are under 20 and don’t do email any more you will be part of the mainstream computer user demographic for whom email has become the default database as well as being the primary communication medium, specially in business.
Many of us use it as a storage place for attachments, a place to access past emails regarding everything from marriage proposals to work quotes to dinner appointments. Our email database is growing bigger and has to enable instant access to past communication.
It needs to be flexible and stable, something that the current iteration of Mail isn’t. So if you have had email issues in Yosemite just hang on and hopefully all will be repaired in El Capitan.
