    Ok so I am thinking of upgrading to maverick from lion on a MacBook Air. I have a rather complex email setup that I seem to master everytime I upgrade anything but forget about what it is inbetween upgrades.

    Point is I don't have time to spend ages working it out but if I upgrade to maverick should my email settings stay the same?

    It depends... who is your email provider? If you are using a standard POP3 or IMAP implementation, you should be fine. But there are some big changes in the way Mail handle Gmail in Mavs and it is causing some people issues. Give this a read on the Gmail issue.

    I think that answers it. I use my own domains through gmail and I am never sure which is pop and IMAP. I think I will have to sit down and work it out for sure before I upgrade!

    If you don't have time, there is no need to rush the maverick upgrade.

    Gives you plenty of preparation time
