Kissell takes a practical look at using the Mail app on an iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch. He covers various email account options including Exchange, MobileMe, and Gmail; helps readers develop a real-world mobile email strategy that integrates with multiple devices and other computers; explains the mechanics of sending and receiving mobile email; and provides essential troubleshooting advice.
Kissell walks readers through the nuts and bolts of receiving, composing, and sending email, and he covers many advanced topics, including real-world Exchange, MobileMe, and Gmail integration; mastering sophisticated organization and filing techniques; and using digital signatures and encryption. Plus he unravels many Mail mysteries, including the sometimes-present Outbox, the Dock unread count, why smart addresses can be stupid, "unsafe" addresses, the Previous Recipients list, attachment tricks, and much more.
In this title, Kissell brings out the big guns to stop spam in its tracks. Readers will learn how Apple Mail filters out spam, how to optimize the Junk Mail filter, and how to fix a spam-clogged incoming queue. Kissell also discusses third-party options that can identify even more spam. The ebook comes with a coupon for $5 off on SpamSieve, Kissell's favorite plug-in for enhancing Mail's anti-spam capabilities. The title covers Apple Mail in Mac OS X 10.3 Panther all the way through 10.6 Snow Leopard.
