Hello People, I use Newton-Mail, it is not free but I really like, it comes with Android and IOS apps too, on windows though it is still in beta. :)

I don't use any, at least for anything other than testing.  I've grown to prefer Gmail's web interface over the years and since it's available anyplace I have an internet connection I've just gone with it.


Thunderbird is a very good free e-mail client as is Opera Mail (though the latter is not fully accessible to screen readers, and for many of my clients that matters).  I also still like Windows Live Mail 2012 and kept a copy of the installer for it, snagging same just before Microsoft pulled it from the site.  Since all of my e-mail accounts are accessed via IMAP WLM still works just fine, as it does for POP.

I've been test-using Thunderbird for the past several months  (or few months, several weeks), and this is the easiest to setup.  Almost nothing to think about.  Just put in your email address and password and Thunderbird looks for all the settings.  Using the program is not bad either, at least for just reading and responding to emails.
