I listened to your recommendation about Spam. Today my primary email is email@example.com and that is listed as my Appple id. I have an email account in icloud that I never use. I use mail as the client with the 1 live.com and two gmail accounts. I’m swamped with Spam on my live.com. I’ve tried to correct specific accounts in mail and contacts (yes, I check for spoofed emails), but nothing happens so I guess all the work is done on the outlook server and Microsoft doesn’t want to listen to lil ol mail.app.
I’m going to take your recommendation of using icloud for my mail. Do you know if outlook will forward the mail to my icloud address? Once I’ve got most of my mail going directly to my new icloud account, can I put an automatic reply on Outlook to tell people of my new address?
I was looking on Apple and read something about NEVER changing you apple ID. I also read about a limit of 3 email accounts on icloud. I’ve probably misinterpreted something.
Can I create a new email account under icloud? How? Can I migrate my AppleID from my live.com to the new one on Icloud?
I also noted that there are or will be multiple new additions to Mail that will improve security. Perhaps this might be a good topic to consider.
I’m not under any timeline here. And I’m tempted to wait until I understand the new mail features before I start moving things over.
Thanks Gary. I never have one simple question to ask. I complify life!
I get far too much spam. The filters in mail don’t work which I think is because the filtering was already done on the Outlook server. I think using an all Apple solution to most of my email will simplify things and reduce spam. It will also force me to delete lots of old stuff and free up space.
Getting Microsoft and Apple to play nicely is a little like driving an oversized trailer across the Tacony-Palmyra, when it had 4 lanes.
