I am used to MS outlook express, currently using OE Classic 1.7 which is similar, but not exactly like MS outlook express. Anyone have any experience with any good ones?


Thanks in advance,



P.S.  I resolved my previous issue with the DLL error, thanks so much again for the help.

Mozilla's Thunderbird.  When you need it up, if you use a smartphone or tablet to also check your email on the go, make sure you set Thunderbird,MTO leave the emails on the server, and to delete from server, when you delete from Thunderbird.


If you need a calendar, you can use Sunbird, but it is very limited, in that it does not work well with Yahoo or other email provider calendars.


I just use my providers web portal for email, since I use a tablet and iPhone, when on the go.  Personally got tired of issues, from third party software products not working like I needed them, since I use my iPhone 99.99% of the time, and my Nexus 7 tablet the rest of the time, to check emails.

Mail from windows essentials would be the first one I would try ( http://www.windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-live/essentials )

Otherwise I would second Thunderbird

if you are willing to pay then full MS Outlook... but well you have to pay for that.

Been trying all (I think) free email clients out there, and no one beats it.
I actually liked Thunderbird but was just to clunky UI and sometimes slow, so I've been using Mailbird for a few months now and really like it.
