I recently upgraded to the new version of OS X Mavericks and have been enjoying all the various new features ( power saving is pretty great ! ). But I found that my Mail.app was behaving strangely while connected to Exchange 2010. Specifically it was not retrieving new email messages. I had to shut down the app and restart it to get a flutter of emails coming in. This obviously was not very convenient.
Doing a bit of experimenting I found that the problem lies somewhere in the “retrieve emails automatically” setting. Not sure why ( console appears to have no good errors ) but it is the culprit.
So if you are experiencing the same problem do the following
- Open Mail.app
- Go to “Preferences”
- Set the “Check for new messages” to “Every minute”
- Watch email stream in
Here is a quick shot of the setting I was talking about
