I’m not sure if anyone else has this problem, though it is not too much of an actual problem for me, but Mail appears to have disconnected itself from sync services.
Is there a limit to the number of services you can have connected at any one time?
When I say it is not an actual problem for me I meant that I don’t use mail to admin my tasks, I’m sorry, but the actual interface is far to basic and simply awful for anything more than the most basic admin tasks, and is simply not for me. I can understand the move Apple made when adding tasks and notes to the Mail .app, but can’t understand why they have not gone the Entourage route and made a proper fully integrated interface to manage messages, tasks and notes, Leopard + 1 I guess?
For me Entourage was almost perfect, administering mail, tasks and notes, with a mini project manager to boot, though the interface was not perfect, the whole thing is/was my preferred PIM, and but for the problems with syncing I would be happy to use it. In the event I’ve taken to using, and purchased, Chronos SOHO Organiser, with SOHO Notes, for all my tasks and notes. Both tie in well with Mail, sync with iCal, and to make the combo almost perfect, a side order of Evernote takes care of a ‘clipboard +’ that has the advantage of tying in my N95 as an extension of the Powerbook, with the advantage of syncing stuff across to the device too (I say ‘sync’, it means stuff is available via a data connection, but at least for 95% of my life that is not going to be a problem).
If anyone has an answer to the Mail tasks problem, I’d be interested to know, though really only for interest reasons.
