VIP mailbox bug in Apple ail on OS X 10.11 El Capitan

Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite Mail icon 1024x1024Coming up with OS X 10.11 El Capitan, the VIP Mailbox in Apple Mail is not working in the ‘Inbox’ view for certain VIP contacts. You can temporarily fix the VIP Mailbox Bug by switching the view to ‘All Mailboxes’. However, I must admit that this circumvention is not a real fix because you have to repeat it from time-to-time and you will see all mails of your VIP contact and not only the ones of the inbox. Update: The VIP Mailbox bug in Apple Mail is fixed on macOS 10.13 High Sierra and macOS 10.12 Sierra.

WhatsApp iconLearn how to set up Whatsapp Web on iPad, iPad air and Mac. WhatApp Web is working without jailbreak on iOS 8, iOS 9, iOS 10, Mac OS X 10.10.5 Yosemite, Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan and macOS 10.12 Sierra. In the past, WhatsApp on iPad without jailbreak was working on iOS 7 and iOS 8 up to version 2.11.8. But then, WhatsApp 2.11.8 apparently expired, meaning the app certificate was not valid anymore.

Furthermore, WhatsApp versions higher than 2.11.8 have never worked on iOS 8 due to root and folder limitations of a non-jailbreaked iPad.
