Windows has a huge historical problem: older versions of Windows gave the default user full Admin privileges and the ability to write anywhere on disc or change any system setting. Consequently, lots of legitimate Windows software assumes these privileges and has to be installed and run as an "Admin" user. Newer versions of Windows have tried to improve security - but are hampered by all the old software that needs Admin right: the choice is either to leave things as they are, block the software (which is unpopular - especially with corporates who depend on ancient software), or pester the user with 'cry wolf' warnings which they rapidly learn to ignore.Hello all,
Does Mac Need Antivirus Protection or Not?
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.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.

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 see, that's not a problem at all, in that case you should choose a really strong password, which you don't use elsewhere.I don't have a mobile phone, let lone two mobiles.
And do they facilitate transfer of all my gmail posts for free?

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.
No worries at all. It definitely improved, including Spam handling. You can set up the spam filter yourself or actually get Gmail to filter mail at the server and then also filter mail in Mail.app based on your requirements. Also don't forget to set up your Gmail account in the browser as @MRU has mentioned.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.
