Apple Asks AppleSeed Members to Help Test Mavericks Mail Update
In a recent email to AppleSeed developers, the Cupertino California company revealed it is working on a Mail update for Mavericks, which looks to deal with a number of issues users are experiencing with the new operating system. According to people who are familiar with the Mail update, Apple is asking AppleSeed members to help in testing the software before it is pushed out to customers. The company is requesting that the update be tested as soon as possible, suggesting that it's likely to see a near future release.
Sources are saying the update focuses on email accounts associated with the Mavericks’ Mail app, including those served by Apple’s own iCloud, Gmail, Microsoft’s Exchange and others were also mentioned. In the release notes, Apple instructs testers to install the update and use Mail normally. Particular areas of concern include moving messages into different folders, undoing certain operations like deletes and making sure messages are being marked as “read” and “unread” in both Mail and on the provider’s server according to the people.
A number of threads have been created on Apple’s Support Communities forum regarding issues with the new operating system’s Mail app, including one discussion concerning odd Gmail folder behavior. This is likely Apple’s attempt to not only fix the current issues but also add more features.
As mentioned before, Apple didn’t specify a target release date so we’ll have to wait and see.
