    Anyone else have the following issues with Airmail?

    First, it loses attachments for some reasons out the blue. For example, a forward of an email with photos.

    Second and more disturbing, try removing Airmail on an Imac with 10.11.5. It is almost impossible to remove it as the default email reader from apple Mail once it it is installed. Level 2 Apple support spent and hour with no joy. Airmail says it all Apple's fault. This occurs even after you remove Airmail app to trash and do a restart.

    The third thing is you can"t import from Mail or export from Airmail 3 saved folders on email.

    I have spent 2 hours with Apple up to Level 2 and an ungodly amount of time with what Airmail calls support.

    Haven't had the attachments loss issue sorry - but those attachments might be being removed by the recipients mail server due to size or some other reason??

    Common sense to change the default mail reader back to Mail before removing Airmail though, otherwise I can see it causing problems.

    The issue is you can change it in Mail preferences. Actually you change it and it still reverts back to airmail. Either under the check or the select method

    Reverts when you next run Airmail or just reverts without Airmail installed?

    It reverts when you don't have airmail running and also when you have removed the program to trash and emptied. It is unknown yet whether you have a chance to save or recover the folder info. For a paid subscription it acts like a piece of spam frankly

    Don't understand about the paid subscription?

    Hard to see how it can change anything if its not running on the machine???

    It cost money, versus a freebie. Your question is actually why I started the thread and we are joined by Airmail tech and Apple tier 2.

    Have you tried moving it to trash while a program like AppCleaner is installed? This will identify all the related Airmail files besides the main .app file, and allow you to delete those files as well.

    The major issue is retaining my saved files/folders in Airmail. They can't tell me how to retain them or export them or unbelievably where and name of the stored folder content. In the mean time, I have an appt with Apple lv 2 call on Friday. We will see what happends

    Ah it was the reference to a "subscription" that threw me. I thought for a minute they had changed their charging model.

    I find Airmail excellent.

    Are you using POP mail? I only use IMAP so all folders are mirrored on the server, nothing to export/import, the same structure can be downloaded to a new client with ease.

    I guess if you actually answered the questions I might have. I have answered three of your emails, your fourth extolled the vistures of Airmail

    Mods close this thread please

    I always thought about getting Airmail as well as other mail apps I see on the mac app store.

    but in general how safe are these apps when it comes to protecting your private info ? especially things like your log in information ?
