Hello, from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada!
In our local news last summer, I learned of security warnings regarding Mac OS Mojave. Having learned of this some time ago ago, as well; I decided to finally upgrade my OS.
Months since making the upgrade to: Big Sur, Catalina, Monterey and Ventura on three difference machines; my email fails to function?
I’ve been trying various, any and all solutions I can find online, but so far, Mail fails to get past the launch stage? It loads, appears on my screens, but that’s about as far as it gets. More often than not, I have to force quit it, in the hope that by re-launching it, it may work, as it sometimes does.
My three main Macs consist of: M1 Mini, with 16 GB of RAM, a 21.5 iMac also with 16 GB of Ram and was soon discontinued by Apple not long after I got it, and, a 27" retina iMac, specifically a late 2014 model with 32 GB of RAM.
I find Mail fails to work reliably on all three of these machines. My three machines have two or three boot partitions having reformatted the internal, boot drive so that I can get into Big Sur, Catalina, and Mojave on this 21.5" iMac, for example.
I thought my problems with Mail were due to running CleanMyMac; which has since been deleted, yet, Mail still fails to work?
Does anyone have any suggestions for ways to get Mail working?
… I confess, I’m still stymied as to why Mail works sometimes, but more often than not, it seems to freeze after launching?
I run Little Snitch firewall software on all machines. Even after this firewall is turned off, Mal still fails get beyond simply launching?
… the only way I’m able to get this plea for help out to you, is via the web portal for this wonderful, TidBIts.
… frustrated now, beyond belief that has me wondering if it’s finally time to give up open Apple, and try Windoz or other Linux OS options?
Stay healthy, everyone!
