Mail And Calendar For Mac

Posted on

The Mail application that ships with macOS and OS X is solid, feature-rich and spam-eliminating software that is also an easy-to-use email client. Optimized to work on the Mac, the Mail app is trouble free and full featured. It can handle all your email accounts in one place. Calendar notifications also appear on your Mac and other devices that use the same accounts. If you use Handoff, you can switch between your Mac and other devices while creating, modifying, or viewing events and calendars. To open an event or calendar handed off to your Mac, click the Handoff Calendar icon that appears at the left side of the Dock.
