Does Mac Need Antivirus Protection or Not?
Down the decade or so I have gmail, it has been compromised at least 4 times, all while also using apple computers, but there is no email program by apple and for mac computers as far as I know. Is there? I have a gigabyte of gmails to consider. Gmail has its own excellent spam sorter. I have checked for an apple email and can't find one. Mostly a list of mail clients, all of which have to be joined with an annual subscription fee. A mail client is not what I need.
Apple's native Mail.app, Airmail, Mailbox, Thunderbird, Postbox, Inky - there's plenty to choose from! And none of these are on an annual subscription fee.
If your Gmail has been compromised, you should enable two-step verification and use a password manager so you can have a strong password - at least 20 characters including capital letters / symbols / numbers.
You're saying that email client is not what you need. Are you looking for an email provider then? You can create an @icloud email account if you want, that's Apple's, for free.
I don't have a mobile phone, let lone two mobiles.
And do they facilitate transfer of all my gmail posts for free?
I see, that's not a problem at all, in that case you should choose a really strong password, which you don't use elsewhere.
Absolutely, they download all your mail for free but considering your Inbox size, this might take a while. I assume Apple's Mail.app will be a good option for you as it works with Gmail relatively well now.
One thing you need to consider if your account will be handled as POP / IMAP as both treat your emails and handling with them differently.
Thanks, tomnavratil. Last I used Apple's mail app some years back, it didn't have a spam filter. If that is one of the improvements to working with gmail it is worth trying again.
