Email Clients Apps and Alternatives

23 applications in this hubLast updated: Oct 16th 2018, 17:48 GMT

Although emails can be sent and received using online services in the web browser, it's rather inconvenient to switch tabs back and forth when trying to work on the computer.

These services are great when you're borrowing a friend's PC to quickly check up on your mail or to send a message. However, email clients are a better solution for personal desktops, especially since they permit multiple accounts with different email providers (the good ones, at least). In addition to multi-account support, email clients typically contain text-related options to help write messages neatly, without grammar errors (e.g. headers, hyperlinks, spellchecker).

Some of the applications can also send desktop notifications on new mail, saving you time otherwise wasted on frequent inbox checkups. Others support extensions, which can be used to further enhance the client's functionality.

These are just some examples since each client has its own particularities. We've handpicked a selection of email clients for this hub that we consider relevant for daily use, and it's up to you to decide which client better suits your needs. However, we made sure to find programs with an easy-to-understand interface and practical options.

If you're interested, we have another hub with apps made to recover email that was lost or deleted. You can also check out all email clients listed on Softpedia.
