Update: BT Mail on Apple macOS Big Sur 11.6 is stable!

Did you know that 99.9% of people do not have any issues or problems with using BT Mail on a Apple Mac computer? And that most issues and problems arise from the lack of Apple Mac computer maintenance.

Using BT Mail on a Apple Mac computer that is running macOS Big Sur 11.4 to Mac OS Big Sur 11.6 or newer is stable.

Update April 2022: BT Mail and Mac OS Monterey 12.3.x update.

The Apple MacOS Monterey update 12.3.x is now available as a software update on MacOS Monterey, the BT Mail service using Apple Mac Mail is working without any setup or with any issues when using Apple Mac Mail, one report of Apple Mac Mail going offline after a MacOS security update, this was resolved and fixed by choosing the option to take all mail accounts online from the Apple Mac Mail menu.

Update 26th October 2021: BT Mail and Mac OS Monterey.

Apple Mac OS Monterey is now available from Apple; we expect BT Mail and Apple Mac OS Monterey to work the same way as BT Mail with Mac OS Big Sur.

For the very best experience when using macOS Big Sur or Mac OS Monterey, with a BT Mail account is to switch on the Apple iCloud Keychain, so that your BT Mail passwords are kept safe and secure.

Apple has said that Apple Mac computers that have downloaded applications from the internet from a technique called side loading can infect the Apple Mac computer with an Apple Mac malware infection.

BT Mail and Apple Mail known issues.

Did you know that there are three BT Mail accounts that you can have, • BT Mail • BT Yahoo Mail • BT Business Mail?

The BT Mail @btinternet.com accounts are for home users that are using BT as your broadband internet connection, the BT email account is paid for from your broadband connection.

The BT Mail Yahoo accounts also have a @btinternet.com email address, the BT business account email address is @btopenworld.com, which causes the most issues and problems.

The first known issue with this is that if you move away from BT and you use another internet service provider, you might have problems sending email messages

And you may loose the ability to use BT Mail with Apple Mail in the near future, plus BT will ask you to pay to keep the @btinternet account open.

BT Yahoo Account problems on Apple Mac computers.

The BT Yahoo email accounts are more of a problem for some BT customers.

BT had a plan to move all BT Yahoo customers to BT Mail, this seems to have stopped, with some customers left on Yahoo and some customers migrated to a new BT mail server.

it’s taken BT five years to sort this out, and is still ongoing today, BT will not give a public statement on the migration process, or if the project has been cancelled.

Are BT Mail Accounts safe and secure?

To keep an email account safe from computer viruses, spam, and malware, needs investment, of course BT are not putting any money into BT Yahoo Mail.

for a BT Yahoo Mail user this means that more advertising emails will be arriving very soon, as Yahoo email accounts are advertising sponsored today.

If BT won’t move your account to a BT Mail server from a BT Yahoo server, then your option would be to look at having your own personal email account.

For BT @btinternet.com accounts BT seems to be using newer more modern server technology, we assume they are using Microsoft technology to host @btinternet.com emails.

For Apple Mac customers that are using BT Mail email accounts on Apple Mac computers BT Mail works without any problems for most customers that use BT mail on their Apple Mac computer.

BT Business Mail and Apple Mac computers.

BT have chosen Microsoft to host BT Business mail accounts these are @btopenworld.com accounts, set up as pop accounts, how stupid, we no longer support this!

We don’t like the @btopenworld.com name, maybe BT don’t like it too, running a business with a mycompany@btopenworld.com is simply not a good business email solution to use.

The @btopenworld.com name was used when email was new to the UK, and BT did not think to offer business domain names!

BT have a new BT Business Mail login website page if you need to check your @btopenworld.com email account online.

For a professional business email solution contact us and we can recommend a solution and a company that provides professional business email support for Apple Mac users in the UK.

BT and Apple Mail setup.

The Apple Mail application on the iPhone, iPad, and Apple Mac computers using @btinternet.com and @btopenworld.com accounts work ok for most people.

If you are using Apple MacOS High Sierra • macOS Mojave • macOS Catalina • macOS Big Sur, then the setup of BT Mail on a Apple Mac computer is automatically configured.

The BT Mail Yahoo accounts can cause more problems to setup.

Do you setup the account as a Other Mail account or as a Yahoo account from the Apple internet accounts icon?

For some BT Yahoo customers, the other mail account works, for other customers the Yahoo account setup works.

The key question is to try to find out from BT which server your email account is hosted on, which can be impossible to find out.

Of course, the BT Mail technical support service follow a Indian call centre script, so of course calling BT is often a waste of time and effort!

You are unlikely to be talking to BT Mail telephone support agent that goes thru set action script, we know this wastes time for more people who need a BT Mac Mail issue fixed.
