    Hi , guys I need some help , I do ask sorry if already have a topic like that , I did not find it

    I take 5 years to make my dad buy a MAC , he is a executive , and he needs a little extra protection , the problem is , he does like outlook and I did buy it for Mac for him , but outlook on Mac is horrible , he had more than 20 issues in less than 1 week , email do not go , email do not come , too many bugs ,

    And he is ready to change for another email client the problem is , he likes to see topics on top , and email on bottom , he does not like side by side emails , and he receives more than 10 thousand emails by month , so I need to find something that can Handle pop email , and have template that he likes , and I need to do that before he does not want OSX any more, I did like postbox , but does not show any other template than I look at screens shots , I accept any advices , and I thanks in advance ,

    Ps: sorry for bad grammar , I am from Brazil , and do not understand fully your grammar

    In postbox you can change the layout to "Classic" view that will give you what you're looking for.

    I use postbox and really like it. It does cost money though, but it's very powerful and customizable.

    MailMate is a really amazing piece of software. Highly recommended.

    The built in Mail app can be set to classic layout in settings and look like you want.

    If possible you really should use SSL and the corresponding port-number. I am sure the mail-provider supports it, if you check their documentation. If you are not using SSL, your mail's are not encrypted but send as plain text and easy to read for everyone who could intercept them. You also should get rid of pop3 and start using iMap/exchange (http://www.pop2imap.com/).

    What costs 3times? If it is imap/exchange or lack of serverspace, then you can likely set up an forward in webmail and use some cloud mail like gmail/icloud/outlook etc. as your real mail-server. With proper configuration it can be done, without the person at the other end knows about it. I have done it for a few persons.

    That ssl is not sticking sound strange. Maybe some of your settings are conflicting. But more details are needed. I have 1 exchange and 2 imap using ssl without problems.

    in order of events

    1- not able to send email ( outlook bug )
    2 - not able to read/see email , too bright , colors almost the same , no option to change colors , ( in-mail app )
    3 - not able to search on "search bar ", he would search letter C and hit enter , and e-mail would find just letter C , not any world with letter C , i know that is possible but it's not easy to do it (in-mail app)
    4- not able copy and paste , i know that it's easy cmd + c , cmd + v , but he did not ask me , so he keeps trying on ctrl + c , ctrl + v (OS X )

    that's is it :p ... and the fact that he is a business man and couldn't use e-mail for about a month ...
