Is anyone else having problems with the default Mac Mail app? I decided to delete Cloudmagic & try to new Mail app because of all the new features. It looks great and is fast, but I have noticed some issues.

The slide on my trackpad to delete feature doesn't work, it starts to slide with a little red showing and then freezes.

Hotmail/Outlook accounts freeze and keep trying to connect, had to delete the account for the time being.

Notifications, when you hit the trash button on the notification, it will not delete the email. It stays in your inbox marked as read.

Mail working fine (including slide to delete) on my late 2012 rMBP. I have iCloud, Gmail, Outlook and Yahoo accounts all connecting without any issues. macOS Sierra was installed on a separate partition over a copy of Yosemite so was expecting I might encounter a few issues, but so far none.

We're you using mail before you upgraded to Sierra. I was using Cloudmgaic prior and just started the mail app as new.

Yea I wasn't using Mail. It worked before in El Capitan, but I usually switch Mail apps and I'll delete the data in the Mac Mail app. So that could be why I'm having the issue or bug.

Just with my company Exchange account. Everything else seems fine.

Mail is working mostly fine. The only issue I found (and reported) is that sent emails remain in the Drafts folder and have to be manually deleted from there. This seems unrelated to the type of mail account, it happens with IMAP, POP and iCloud accounts.
