I've been using MT4 on MAC and Windows for several years now. It runs well on both OS's, but since the MAC version is actually a virualized PC application through Wine, it has a couple of limitations compared to the pure Windows app. For example, on MAC you will not be able to access the marketplace through MT4. I read somewhere this is because Internet Explorer is not installed.
Now, for the life of me, I have been unable in more than 3 years trading, to be able to send mail notifications throught the Mac version. On Windows it works great, mail server configuration is perfect, and has no issues. But when I try to send through Mac, journal will say it has sent email, but no email is received at all. Weird thing is, when I CLOSE MT4 on Mac, I receive those mail notifications on my email...
Has anyone with MAC had this issue resolved? Is there some other way MAC users can receive Mail notifications from MT4?
(using a Virtual Machine to run Windows is not the issue here, I know it works, but it does pose a burden on performance for my Mac)
