    Outlook is the app that will help you manage all your emails and stay in touch with your friends. It also includes calendars and a system that always keeps the important messages on tops so you don't miss a thing.

    Mailbird Lite is not just an email client: it is a communication platform to which you can add all sorts of apps and extensions. Its worth paying for the pro version, however, as most of the best features are unavailable in the free version.

    "Mailbird is a fantastic email client offering free and premium options. It's an easy-to-use desktop email client that puts all of your email accounts into one place, so you don't have to constantly log in and log out of your various email accounts to see if you've gotten any new messages. It's a great program and I recommend checking it out."

    "It used to be that people had but one e-mail account, but not people have many - for work, family, friends, to avoid spam and so on. Nylas N1 becomes a life-saver under those circumstances - you can connect *all* your various e-mail addresses, manage your various subscriptions and so on, all with an open source downloadable client. Way easier!"

    Mozilla Thunderbird has plenty of features and a lot of extensions that are available for free. It has unique functions such as creating links for files that are too big to send as attachments or the ability to read RSS news feeds alongside your emails

    Zimbra Desktop has fallen off the radar recently but it does have some distinguishing features like the ability to read all your email while you're offline.

    "This is a great program. I use it to keep on top of my emails when my Internet gets glitchy (which is unfortunately a lot - I should probably change my ISP). It works with both my work and personal email accounts. I also like how it has a kind of split screen. That lets me see my list of emails and read or write an individual email at the same time, without having to change tabs or anything. Best of all is the price - you can't beat free! I think anyone who deals with a lot of email (and who doesn't, these days?) should check this program out."
