I'm a new Mac convert!

38 replies
I'm typing this message from my new MacBook Pro. Looking good man!

Now, I've joined the Mac cult group...

Just wanted to know if anyone knows of an email client that works like "The Bat" email client? The email client that comes with Mac is not what I'm looking for.

What I'm looking for is an email client that allows me to setup multiple accounts; each account has it's own Sent, Draft, Trash box.

Do you know of any Mac software that runs like this?

    First and foremost CONGRATS on the conversion ;-)

    Secondly, google this thing called 'parallels' it allows you to run windows on MAC!!! Insane hey - But I luv traffic travis compared to market samurai but am a MAC Luver so had a similar dilemma a while back myself.

    Hope it helps.

      I'd recommend Thunderbird. It loads fast, has a nice UI, and has the individual e-mail account options (inbox, sent, etc.). And congrats on getting a Macbook Pro, they're amazing machines!

          I was the same until i took the plunge, never looked back, plus i am running WIN 7 with parallels on my MAC.
          It's not as daunting as you may think switching to MAC, took me about 1 week to get comfortable with MAC OSX.

            First of all, I want to say, I've a Mac for over a year in my closet.
            Maybe I was a failure with it due to the fact I did not want it to load Windows.
            I thought doing it was defeating the whole purpose of using a Mac.
            I felt like I have had a Ferrari but, I was terrible taking turns...
            Maybe someone can suggest me a way to solve my moving to Mac.

    You might find that with Thunderbird by Mozilla.

    Me too - I used to do everything on PC till I got my Macbook 3 months ago

    I use VMware Fusion to run windows programs when I need them. I really enjoy how smooth everything runs.

    Is Mac really better than a PC? I'm not sure and I'm not going to argue it. I simply enjoy writing on my Macbook better than any other platform I've used to date.

      Mac Mail lets you set up multiple accounts and each has it's own Sent, Trash etc. I think it's a very good program.

    If you want to set up multiple gmail accounts then Mail Plane (Google it - can't post links yet) is the best out there (no affiliation).

      The Mail program that comes default with Mac? Can it? I tried so many times, it doesn't work.

        In Mac Mail, down the bottom left of the main screen are a + and - sign. Click the + to add a new account. It's that easy!

      Congratulations also, Joseph.

      I've been a mac user for about 6 years now. I was like most at first, mac resistant, windows addicted. I now have a hard time doing anything on a pc, just don't understand them anymore. So I'm very mac happy now.

      Stopped using window's emulator software years ago, gave up on microsoft office and only use pages, keynote and numbers. The base products I use for IM business are; adobe cs5, pages, keynote, garage band, screenflow, devonthink, market samurai and poker academy 2 (PZ). The last one is for my creative breaks.

      I think you can create the type of mail boxes you want in mail, but I just looked in one of my osx books and didn't find anything to share with you. I have aliases for different mail accounts on my mac and a I run most of my websites into mail.

      Hope this helps a little, enjoy your new mac.

    I switched to an iMac in August. I love it, except for figuring out how to right-click. I still a newbie in IM, so I don't have much experience with running various programs on iMac. It came pre-loaded with Adobe Creative Suite, but I don't yet know how to use it.

    You can do that with the "Mail" client that comes with your new Mac : - )

      Man, I must be dumb. I still can't get it done! I have to install The Bat email client on Windows and use Parallels to run Coherence with Mac.

      It works for me so far. Looks like this is the solution for me when it comes to email...

      But Mac's really cool...

        Joseph, I urge you to not go that route. (and if you already did, then quick, un-do/uninstall!) There are soooo many advantages to using Apple's Mail and other native Apple software. (including (a) seemless integration with other Apple software; and (b) seemless syncing with your iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad; plus lots of other things)

        You have a few options:

        (1) Tutorial vids
        Apple's site has easy-to-follow videos that show how to setup Mail.

        (2) Genius Bar
        Call your local Apple retail store and make an appointment at the Genius Bar. (or you can schedule it online from the support section of Apple's website) Bring your Macbook to your Genius Bar appointment. They'll help you setup your email.

        (3) Free workshops
        Apple retail stores have free workshops. You can go to the one that shows the basics of using your mac, and setting up email, etc.

    Welcome to the Mac Club!

    I've used a Mac since 1987 or so, producing newsletters at my job on PageMaker 1.0! Now up top three desktop Macs and two laptops in the house plus a Mac mini server for the network. There is one Windows PC for various sundry activities, but it's a pretty lonely machine, I have to say.

    I use GyazMail for Mac and have been very happy with it.

    Welcome to the cult JT. I made the jump a few years ago. Now I have an iPhone, iMac and iPad. Next will be my Macbook Pro. What spec did you get?

    I run VMWare Fusion on my iMac to run Windows in case i need to run any windows programs. Funny enough, windows runs much faster and more stable on the iMac with little spyware or virus issues!

      Funny ... buy a Mac (or two) and use one to run Windows.

      Me ... I buy a PC to run Windows. Don't need the additional Mac, but I do have a couple of nice Windows laptops.

      Never could understand buying a Mac to run Windows. Hassling with Parallels or whatever it is to do something that a PC does naturally and beautifully. Different strokes for different folks.

        I have used a Mac for the last 3 years and will not return to Windows ever again.

        Whats good about a Mac - no viruses - no slowdowns - no unexpected shutdowns - no blue screens of death - no problems at all in fact.

        The big one for me is I no longer feel like a beta tester, forever trying to sort out issues that Microsoft should have got right off the bat. When they did think they got it right but didn't - it was renamed and you pay lots of cash for the next buggy version.

        Macs get the job done with absolutely no fuss without windows converted software.
        9 times out of 10 there is a better Mac alternative out there anyway.

    For the folks who can't justify the cost of a Mac, there's always Ubuntu. And just like with OSX you can run windows programs via Wine or PlayonLinux.

    Though my next purchase may be a 13 inch Macbook Pro. Nothing can beat the display quality. At least, nothing that's less than 1,000.
