How can you Take Control of Apple Mail in Mavericks and iOS 7?

Have you had trouble or confusions with Apple Mail in Mavericks? Lots has changed from previous versions, particularly for Gmail users, and although Apple has restored some functionality in 10.9.1 and the just-released 10.9.2, there’s nothing like a healthy dose of expert advice to put you back in control of your email. To help with that, email expert Joe Kissell has revisited the topic in “Take Control of Apple Mail.” This new ebook, which covers both Mail for Mavericks and iOS 7, provides 175 pages of essential setup, usage, and troubleshooting advice, whether you use Gmail, iCloud, Exchange, or IMAP — or more than one. The book normally costs $15, but the 30% MUG discount drops that to $10.50. Learn more about the book and purchase via the coupon-loaded link below.

Along the way, Joe explains core concepts like special IMAP mailboxes and email archiving, reveals Mail’s hidden interface elements, and offers tips on customizing Mail to your preferences (including the best power-user plugins for Mail on the Mac). You’ll also learn how to find that message in the haystack, figure out how digital signatures and encryption work in Mail, and uncover solutions to numerous common problems. Perhaps most important, Joe shares his strategy for avoiding email overload; the article where he first introduced it won American Business Media’s Neal Award for Best How-To Article.
