You will probably welcome the news that Apple is already working on a set of fixes to address OS X Mavericks Mail 7's less satisfactory aspects…

The Fairer Platform’s first look at OS X Mavericks Mail 7 back in June noted a handful of unexciting, unadventurous bullet points. Unfortunately, for Gmail users, the adventure didn’t begin in ernest until they upgraded to Mavericks.

TidBITS Joe Kissel is the definitive source for Mail 7’s numerous sins, especially Gmail/IMAP issues. For what it’s worth, Macworld has a short look at Mail 7’s faults and benefits.

With all of that considered, you will probably welcome the news that Apple is already working on not only OS X 10.9.1, but also Mail 7.0.x. According to 9 to 5 Mac, it will address the following issues:

– Use Mail with your usual Mail accounts, including iCloud, Gmail, Exchange, etc
– Send Mail messages
– Receive and check for new Mail messages at the intervals you expect it
– Read and move Mail messages to folders on your mail server, folders on your Mac, smart folders
– Delete Mail messages as appropriate
– Undo move or delete actions with your Mail messages
– Mark messages read/unread in both your mail provider’s webpage and Mail and verify they stay in sync

Those of you keep score at home may have noticed Mail 7’s four bullet-pointed new features are easily outnumbered by the fixes listed above. Yep, it’s been interesting ride…
