Apple Mail is alternatively referred to as Mail. In addition to the general features of most e-mail clients, Apple Mail can sync automatically across all Apple devices. Furthermore, it allows users to receive e-mail from other services, such as Gmail, Outlook, and Yahoo Mail all in one place. But sometimes the user can face a problem with it.
