Ever since I switched from a PC to a Mac a few years ago, I’ve been looking for a good e-mail client for the Mac. At the time I was on OS X 10.5, and I tried Mac Mail (the built-in client) to handle TRENDYBLACKGUY’s e-mail via Host Gator’s mail servers and that was far from stable–too many random errors. I tried Mozilla’s Thunderbird, too, and that just sucked. I thought Mozilla would have made a decent program since Firefox is pretty good. Umm, so, yeah, I also tried about 3 other recommended programs to no avail.
Now, though, I finally got my hands on Office for Mac 2011. Late, yeah, I know, but whatever. I also upgraded my Macbook to a pro, so now I have OS X 10.6 (I know I could have put it on my older Macbook, but I didn’t feel like it *shrug*). I read here that Mac Mail on OS X 10.6 was pretty good, but I haven’t tried it. Instead, I’ve been using Outlook, which comes with Office for Mac 2011. I’m very familiar with Outlook from Windows and I’ve always loved it. Now it’s actually stable and working for Macs. Thanks, Microsoft! Oh, yeah, the other software in Office for Mac 2011 is superb as well; it’s your typical Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc.
Point of this story? Go get yourself Office for Mac 2011 and solve your e-mail client problems.
