    "Everyone knows Gmail, but should you use it daily? Well, it's simple, easy to use, but that's about it. Google harvests your information in order to provide ads tailored to you (haha), a rather boring interface especially for those used to flashier email apps as well as a mediocre labeling and search system. Certainly not bad if you just want to read your messages, but you can probably do better than the vanilla version."

    "Wow. This might be the coolest thing since sliced bread, but I have no idea where my most important to me emails (and I get a lot) is right now. The solution link just throws you in the deep end, with no tutorial in sight. Maybe on a nice slow Sunday I might wade in and figure out if this is for me, but not in prime working time."

    "I don't really understand why I need this. It's just shy of 50.00 for a year to basically do what I already do with email for free. Why do you need a snooze app for email? If you're busy when the email comes in just wait to read it until you have time. I installed this and tried it out to see if if would make my email somehow magical and sparkly or something but it's just a little prettier and a little streamlined. It might be nice but I'm not paying extra for that."

    "I like that Thunderbird doesn't crash as often as other solutions that I have found. There is, however, a short learning curve and takes a while to get used to. To get my contacts in my address book moved over did take a while to figure out, but I like the add-ins and have customized Thunderbird the way I like it. I use the vertical view with the reader on the right side and have installed lightning. The one thing I don't like is that the contacts show only in a list form, not card format like it was in Outlook. A plus in using Thunderbird is I can scroll down through each message when I hit the space bar when reading them. When I get to the end of the message it jumps to the next one or to the next inbox folder which is really nice also. It is free and open-source which I also like."

    "If you're using a Windows phone like I am, Outlook syncs e-mails very nicely between both your PC and your phone via IMAP, without using too many resources in the background. On the PC side, the interface is fairly robust, and highly customizable. Great for power users."

    "This is a very helpful app for people with multiple e-mail addresses. I use this app because I have a professional e-mail for work, an e-mail for signing up for coupons, pizza shops, online clothing stores, and an old e-mail with a crazy and long name I used in college. I don't like having to login to all 3 e-mails everyday so this is a nice way of saving time. "
