Thanks Queen-Evie. I know that its an email client so the questions was, would you recommend it and would it still be professional in an enterprise environment, since majority of companies are using outlook?
And the bonus question is, what email provider would you guys use other that Microsoft?

I use Comcast. A lot of folks I know use AT&T. YMMV.
Make regular full system backups or you'll be sorry sooner or later.

IMO (which is only based on personal use)...choosing an email client is done based on personal factors, comparison, a trial, and so on.
I would also delve into why Outlook might be a business favorite, if that's true...and why some businesses do not employ Outlook as the chosen email client.
In the past, as my personal email client, I've used Eudora, Outlook, Outlook Express and I currently use TBird. None of these was necessarily "better" than the other, it was strictly a matter of making a personal choice based on what I liked.

Majority of mid to large companies are using Outlook because you need to for native Exchange support. If you don't have exchange, then Thunderbird is a good client. There is no such thing as a non Microsoft exchange server.

Thank you hamluis and Trikein. Definitely good answers
Btw, @Trikein, can you quickly explain to me what exactly MS Exchange is?

Like Hamlius, I was a happy user of Mozilla Thunderbird for years! For some reason, not T-bird's fault at all, I had to move from Tbird over to eM Client 6. It's not as friendly upfront as Tbird. eM Client does a have a very good and powerful account "setter-upper," I was able to establish different email accounts that Tbird would have to jump through hoops to do. eM Client [the pay for version] works very well for businesses, non-for-profits, etc., it might be a bit "big" for individual usage.

Exchange is a messaging service developed by Microsoft to run on their server platform. It controls email, calendar, and instant messaging. Its a different way of getting email like pop/IMAP but instead of the server being used for many emails and possibly even domains, each exchange server is designed for that user.

... But what is the real benefit of this?

Greater flexibility and integration of calendar/meetings/message into email.
