“It’s safe to say that Mail in OS X Mavericks has been the new operating system’s least impressive point,” Mark Gurman reports for 9to5Mac.

“Since launch, users have been complaining about issues relating to Gmail accounts, stability, and overall synchronization,” Gurman reports. “Apple first attempted to patch up these bugs with a fix in early November of last year.”

“OS X 10.9.2, which was released yesterday, was supposed to finally just make Mail on Mavericks work correctly for everyone. In my personal testing since release, synchronization with Gmail accounts is much improved and now completely usable,” Gurman reports. “But it seems that as 10.9.2 fixed the syncing bugs, some stability issues have re-appeared. Several posts on Apple’s Support Forums indicate issues with the Mail app crashing at launch.”
