Apple Mail - Something better (and free)?


For the past few days I’ve been trying to start updating my email address everywhere.

This typically involves [XYZ] sending you an email to verify the change.

In most cases this has happened as you would expect - an email appears in the inbox, with a link or code to verify your new email address.

However, several [XYZ]'s emails were not, apparently, reaching me.

Google was one. I assumed Google hated me (long story), but no… when I eventually tried performing a search for “google” in Apple Mail’s search box - it found the dozen or so confirmation emails that I’ve requested. But, if I go into my inbox - it’s not there.


What’s a good alternative to Apple Mail? Any such thing as a good, free, alternative? (Not web based…)

Cheers and thanks

the cosmic hobo, you might say

Outlook for Mac is now free.,%2C%20beautiful%2C%20and%20now%20free.

But I hate it.

I would suggest if you’ve been using apple mail for years and it’s been migrated between multiple computers it may be best to rebuild all the indexes.

Hi folks,
Does anyone know if you do use Outlook with an iCloud email address and you use custom admins (iCloud+) Idoes this work with Outlook? or any other third party mail app other than macOS Mail?
