    Hey guys so I love how my iphone perfectly displays all of my Gmail accounts and I can switch between them freely. I really do not have any luck with the standard MAIL app that comes with the MBP. I was wondering if there were any other Apps you could recommend that would tell me just like my iPHone does when I have new mail and check freely (basically push) ?

    Thank you!

    The Mail app works extremely well in handling multiple Gmail accounts. I have 5, and it handles them fine.

    No, it's not weird at all. It's working as designed. I want my mail on my computer, so I can read it and compose new mail, even when I don't have an internet connection.

    Is there a way to make it so not ALL my messages from one email show. Like can I limit it to 25 a page?

    Well I do not like the Mail app. Do any of you know of a different one? Not that hard of a question. Don't just come in and say OMG MAIL APP IS THE GREATEST when a topic starter does not like to use it.

    No one said "OMG Mail app is the greatest". It's well suited to the needs you describe and you haven't given any specific reason for not using it, other than you don't like it. Why recommend something different if that app does the job well?

    Mail does not even work for me. It does not fetch new mails at all, and crashes every 30 minutes or so. I have removed and added my account as advised here a few times too.

    That's an issue with your specific setup, and not indicative of the app itself. Mail works well for millions of users. You simply need to troubleshoot your specific setup.

    Tried everything and have no idea what to do. Works great on my ipad, but hell on my brand new MBA 13.

    Save yourself time and money.

    Learn how to use Apples Mail App.

    I have 7 Gmail accounts for work & personal. "Mail" handles them perfectly.

    If you give yourself time to acclimate to this app you will be quite surprised at just how good it is. Why you would want to ignore this free app that came with your Mac, makes no sense.

    Perhaps it's just a matter of wanting a different look.

    Have you tried taking it back to the Apple store and asking what's going on?
