    There are more email service providers for windows which are also a good alternative to outlook like Zoho Mail, Banckle.Email, Fast Mail etc. Zoho and Banckle are also offering free custom domain mailboxes to outlook users. You should check out these email service providers and if you find them useful add them in your list.

      Thankyou for suggestion Andrew, I’ll surely add your suggested email clients in the list after proper testing.

    Nice list, Hammad. Suggest you check out The Bat! by Ritlabs and add it to the list as well. It might as well beat all competition when it comes to functionality.

    Pretty sure Thunderbird is no longer being supported or updated. It’s day has come and gone…back in 2012 I think.

      That’s actually incorrect. Regular development of it continues in the form of extended releases which means Mozilla will release a long term support release instead of one every few months. In between each long term release, the community takes over and adds features.

        Mozilla’s most recent prompt to update was 13 January, 2015, which resulted in version 31.4.0 being downloaded and installed. A list of 60 bugs resolved as fixed over the last 10 months is currently available.

    just installed thunderbird on a new windows 8.1 pc. Useless kept crashing and hanging saying not responding. Waste of an hour of my day

      I found that Waterbird is best for windows 8.1.
      It is, in fact, Mozilla’s 64 bit email and as Win 8.1 is a 64 bit operating system you should try it.
      I find that with 32 bit programs, many have the crashing troubles.

    Which client supports nested folders? (finally migrating to Windows 7. looking to replace outlook express)

    Hey, awesome post!
    You should definitely check out Mailbird. I feel it should be added to the list above. Especially now that they launched Unified Inbox Plus to all the other Apps like Facebook, WhatsApp and, its my absolute favourite.:-)

    I need to find an email client that will keep my accounts or profiles separate.
    Also that allows filtering or blocking of top level domains such as .eu and .xyz

    try Mailbird, a very good email client

    Mailbird is nice, but the fact that is does not support email rules makes it a nogo for me.

  11. Jerry November 8, 2015 at 7:54 pm - Reply

    Mailbird is NOT recommended by most of the computer techies I know because it sends too much of your private information back to the company for them to use or sell at their own discretion. Right now (Nov 2015) there are no really good email clients that I would recommend. Both Opera Mail and Thunderbird are passable but have not been updated in over a year and doesn’t seem a high priority to them. is the new Hotmail and it’s marginally better than Hotmail but not by much. I’m afraid that these days email software really sucks so best thing is probably for you to play with a few and find one that you can live with. Sorry there isn’t better news. Happy hunting!
