I am trying to help a friend get set up on a Mac for the first time. Have the computer in place ('though she's not hooked it up yet) . . . now need to get email working. She's used to webmail, and wants to stay with it for the following reasons: (1) she receives lots of photos and doesn't want them taking up space on her harddrive; and (2) if a comet falls on her house (her words, not mine), her email will still all be safe on a remote server. So, with this in mind, I'm thinking a Gmail IMAP account would suit her needs. The question remains, however, whether she should just use the Gmail user interface or use her own mail server . . . and if she uses her own email client, which one would work best for her? I'm in unfamiliar territory here, because I'm am old, set-in-my-ways Eudora POP user who's never set up an IMAP account. But, I promised I'd help her . . . so I'm hoping you all can help me! She'll be using one computer only, so has no immediate need to access mail from multiple computers (well, unless that comet hits). She's on a G4 running Tiger. Which mail client would interface best with Gmail, and which one would be the easiest for her to set up? It makes some sense for her to use Mail (so she can also use Address Book, etc.) . . . I've just read that some people have had problems using Mail with Gmail IMAP. Any suggestions?
