I have never used any mail client in the past and have always accessed my Hotmail, Yahoo, Gmail accounts online. I gave a try to Mail by curiosity and I am experiencing several problems: - I managed to set up Gmail and Yahoo and import all my messages, but I have had problems to connect to Yahoo today. As for Gmail, it does not retrieve any of the messages I received. - When accessed through Firefox, Yahoo and Gmail are efficient in filtering spam. However, Mail puts all my messages, including spam, in the Inbox even though I enabled junk filtering. - when I delete a message, the next message in the Inbox is automatically selected and marked as read. This is extremely annoying as it might lead me to believe that I really read that message even though I did not. I have not found a way to change Mail's behavior, so that a message is marked as read only when I double-clicked on it and really read it. - When I am at work I sometimes check my messages through the web. It means that when I am back home, the messages I already read will be shown again as unread in Mail. Is there a way for Mail to know which messages were already read throught the web interface? Due to these issues, I am tempted to give up on mail clients and go back accessing my mailboxes through the web. I really do not see the advantage of using this type of application. Am I missing something?
