mail in 10.3
Authored by: ocpete on Jun 09, '06 03:58:39PM

I LOVED mail.app on 10.3. Something happened with imap support in 10.4, I think it had to do with the spotlight integration, that made imap on tiget mail w/ novell imap unusable. I've been using thunderbird lately, which does the job well. Just drives me nuts that mail is so bad in the imap situation.

mail in 10.3

IMAP http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IMAP
Great for keeping all your mail on the server, but dealing with it via a email client. the main advantage for me is that I can use a client app when I'm in my office, but when I'm home or elsewhere, all the mail is accessible via webmail. 10.3 dealt with it fine, wonderful support. 10.4 ends up trying to index over the network so much that it takes forever to read mail. The search isn't worth it to me, find in 10.3 worked fine.

I meant to mention that failing as well in my earlier reply. IMAP functionality is far better in Eudora. Heck even Thunderbird or Mozilla does it better.
The only thing I find Thunderbird/Mozilla has over Eudora is the "find as you type" search field. Very handy, but I am sure if enough Eudora users requested it, Qualcomm would add it. :D

When we upgraded to Service Pack 2 for Groupwise 6.5 all of those strange IMAP errors in 10.4 Mail disappeared.
As a work around, try changing the option under Preferences>>Accounts>>Advanced>>'keep copies of messages for offline viewing' to 'Only messages I've read'. This worked fine for us until we installed GW6.5 SP2.
