I'm frustrated and looking for help with the new beta 5 OSX Yosemite. Each time I open Mail (Mac Mail) and begin composing a message, I can literally watch the 32gigs of RAM I have get sucked up by the mail app to the point where the mac is completely unresponsive. Been able to manage it watching application monitor but even with Beta 5 issued today, no improvement.

Yes, when I close the mail app, the RAM is restored so I've been able to single out the problem, however thats as far as I can take it......any help out there??

Thanks

Why are you frustrated?? Yosemite is still in beta release. It's not supposed to be 100% stable. Save the frustration for the REAL Yosemite release!:)

Now if you happen to be an Apple software engineer…working on how to fix problems with the pending final release of Yosemite…and you are looking for solutions. Then I can understand your frustration with only about a week to go before it is released (according to rumors)!;)

I only thru that possibility your way…since…maybe there isn't a fix at this point.

Hey…I'm only an "opinion of one". Someone else may chime in with the exact answer you're looking for!:)
