    I'm getting to a point of no return and I need to vent a bit here.

    Apple web services are so bad it's unbelievable. They need to stop releasing this Beta services which just give the company a bad name.

    From Photo Library Beta which has 0 photos and 0 videos but still shows 190MB of data usage on my iCloud Drive.

    From not being able to upload anything via iCloud.com (browser), see attached error.

    From email silently filtering my mail (several emails not getting to me with confirmation from people that sent them).

    From not being able to remove Application Library folders from iCloud Drive which have no files in it, Script Editor, yes, I'm talking to you...

    All these tiny things together piss me off to the point of even considering... yes even considering Google services...

    I ****ing HATE Google and all the data tracking they do on me without an account, so adding an account with them would just make it insane!

    But at least Google Services (the ones that they don't shut down) do work.

    Apple, GET YOUR SHIFT TOGETHER!

    This prick Eddie Cue should have been fired long time ago.

    I generally don't use their betas so that's my advice. I mean you're complaining about software/services that are not ready for prime time.

    While I agree that apple's track record with web/cloud services is horrible. You'll save yourself a lot of frustration if you avoid their betas.

    I do want to agree with you, and for the most of their services that I have issues I do.

    But silent SPAM filtering (on their on terms), iCloud Mail is not Beta, or at least I don't think so :(

    Do they end up in your junk/spam folder?

    Nop, they are not delivered at all.

    I've had this happen with emails sent from outlook.com/gmail/custom domain.

    Usually it's emails with attachments (small ones >1MB).

    I feel your pain. Check out Outlook.com for a possible solution. I've been using Outlook/OneDrive for a while now and have been very pleased. They integrate wonderfully into the Apple Ecosystem as well.

    OP: If it's so bad, why do you use it? Don't get me wrong, I understand wanting to love it. And I also feel the pain the others have felt. But you have to trust services, and if you don't, use something else you'll trust.

    Yet another victim of Apple's cloud services vision.

    Another vote for OneDive. I just keep my free 5GB iCloud account for synching mail, calendars, reminders, contacts and notes across devces. Just the basic stuff. OneDrive does the heavy lifting.

    OP, Any more details on the nature of those to/from emails that never show up?

    Had the same problem myself. Still using iCloud. Has been pretty reliable for me, though I still see comments about silent filtering here. Started threads myself about same or similar and am wondering if anything has changed. May also help us help you.
