MacVoices #14051: Joe Kissell Takes Control of Apple Mail

Joe Kissell  is back after an uncharacteristic silence to discuss his newest book, Take Control of Apple Mail. Joe explains why this book takes a somewhat different approach than previous efforts, and why it remains his email client of choice (with a few modifications). There has been plenty of controversy over some of the changes to Apple Mail, including issues with Gmail. Joe explains why Gmail presents so many challenges, why he’s moved away from it, and offers some sample tips to help you handle your email more efficiently.
