    Apple has really borked up the Mail app again. Not only is there no support for gmail configured as a POP account, if you had one already configured, it no longer consistently gathers mail.

    I am playing with Outlook as a replacement. Fortunately, I have MS Office 2011. So they add an easy way to activate Google's 2-factor authentication, but screw up the Mail app in the process. I believe that it's one of the signs of the apocalypse where Apple and Google are "working" together on anything.

    I am still sorting through this whole email thing. The parts that are involved are:

    Gmail account configured as POP.
    Yosemite 10.10.3
    Apple Mail.

    If that is your setup, DO NOT install this beta.

    And a huge public shout out to Karenkcoulter for her help and patience, and for listening to me kvetch about the 3-headed monster:
    1. Google's semi-proprietary implementation of IMAP
    2. Apple's moronic move to forces us away from gmail POP
    3. My stupidity for installing this beta before investigating what the other 2 were going to break.

    I am still unable to get Gmail email to show up on both my iPhone and my MBP. Out of frustration, I emailed Craig Federighi and did get a response. In that response Federighi says that POP3 continues to work with other servers. However, I am also having the same issue consistently pulling email from my email accounts with my cable provider, Cox Communications. I'm not convinced that he's being completely accurate with his response.

    I just upgraded to 10.10.3, beta 2, and discovered that Apple did something to hose Bartender again. Bartender 1.2.30 is the latest build, but this combination has caused the icons to all stack on top of each other, making the whole mess unusable. Grrrrr.

    Beta software breaking stuff is truly a first world problem, but an annoying one, to be sure.

    Good news! After reporting the issue with Bartender to the developers, I got the following reply. The test build is available, and seems to have fixed the problem. I love those guys - they are awesome!

    Hi, we have released Bartender Test Build 1.2.32 that should be compatible with OS X 10.10.3 Beta 2. Clicking the following link in Safari will make Bartender accept test builds and check for updates Accept Test Builds | Bartender When you update it should work straight away, but if you still see issues logging out and back in or restarting OS X should help.
    Thanks,
    Ben

    Thanks, but that was not a link.

    I have been working with a couple of Apple engineers about this (and other POP account issues) with Yosemite 10.10.3 - people who contacted me after I emailed Craig Federighi. The issue is in the nether regions somewhere between the way Google does POP mail and the way Apple does it. I have been assured that there is currently no way to do it with the 10.10.3 betas, but that Apple is working with Google to get it resolved before 10.10.3 goes live. I've been told by these engineers that at least part of the issue is the fact that Google has moved to OAuth for mail. However, the gmail POP continues to work unimpeded and unabated in both MS Outlook (Office 2011) and Postbox.

    So heres the link which was meant, I presume.
    Ive been following this post for quite a while, cause Im directly affected by the gmail POP error - and this link provides a fully working solution (at least also for me).
    Had to make that link a bit clunky in order to work here as Ive less than 10 posts

    With Beta 4 and now Beta 5, my memory usage has gone to low levels (2.90-3.40 gb). Before that, it would get up to 9.98gb with the identical use that I am doing now.

    The GA release must be getting close. This one was 3 days after the previous. And the build number is only 3 higher that the previous (3/30/15) release - 14D127a > 14D130a.

    Pretty exciting stuff. I had to jump off the beta wagon this round. Can't wait for the official release.
